Hillary got more votes last night ...

... than all the GOP candidates combined.

Enthusiasm gap?

In NY, not so much.

1. I think we (democrats) were counting on winning NY

no matter who our candidate is... and no matter who the repukes nominate.

The question about enthusiasm and independent voter attraction and turn out is really a question for the so-called swing states.

2. Sadly yes a bit of a drop based on actual statistics.

 

2016
1,790,093 Hillary (1,037,349)

2008
1,891,143 Hillary (1,068,496)


94%, but that being said it is one of her highest yet. But it shows that she wins in closed primaries as long as it does not get to 100% of 2008.

She also lost over 31000 votes she had in 2008...which direction does the arrow on her logo point? I would think backwards, but others may say it actually points towards the middle east. It will be an odd thing that Trump may actually be less pro war that Hillary, meaning that the DNC may actually be the party of war, and the vets have to switch back to the RNC that left after Bush.

4. I think you actually may have hit the truth

 



on the left (or right) side of a stage from the point of view of a performer facing the audience.


It is what she sees as "left" as she acts the the part of her character in the election.

6. Let's hope pubs don't mistake it for "forward" and

instead think it's really a secret message aimed at them. We'll take all the votes we can get.

7. Well Huckabee...

 

Already endorsed over Bernie and spoke warmly so I don't think we need to trick them, they are more business minded so they know a good deal when they see one. They are basically getting two Garlands for the price of none.
