Do you think all the polls showing Clinton ahead might depress turnout among Sanders supporters?

People like to back a winning horse. Discouraged voters on the other hand might just stay at home.

1. Ah not me

 

Polls can be wrong, just ask Faux Noise 2012. BTW, Bernie IS a winning horse.

4. People who do not turn out and vote, don't give a damn. Sanders followers don't fit that demographic

as far as I've seen. At least not in the primary.

7. Think it is much more likely that Hillary voters stay home.

She has a much less enthusiastic support compared to Bernie and they'll assume she has it wrapped up. She has a history of underperforming in Iowa and other states as well.

9. Oh absolutely.

I have heard that Bernie supporters across the country are already volunteering to work extra shifts and do whatever else is necessary to cover for the absenses of Clinton voters on election day. It is very difficult for Bernies supporters to do this on this large a scale, but after all it is better than to stay at home and it is Clinton's turn.

for the irony impaired
