The main difference between Clinton and Sanders Supporters.

The main difference between Clinton and Sanders supporters is that Clinton supporters are more likely to attack Sanders supporters than Sanders supporters attack Clinton supporters. Clinton supporters talk about personality while the vast majority of Sanders supporters are about policy. I noticed this even before I became a Sanders supporter, and it is across all modes of median not just on this website. That is part of the reason I became a Sanders supporter.

While the media gave us the narrative on the Bernie Bros, it gave them Clinton supporters a carte blanche to say what ever nasty things they wanted to about Bernie supporters.

The Clinton supporters complain about the Bernie or busters, but their continued nastiness of the Clinton supporters are only going to increase the ranks of the busters. I now stay away from General Discussion Politics, because her supporters there with their constant insults to Sanders supporters name it hard for me to vote for Clinton if she wins the nomination.

Have these people ever heard of the book, "How to Win Friends and Influence People,"? Most Clinton supporters are not doing a good job with winning over non supporters. It seems like they are alienating people on purpose. It causes me great concern in the general if Clinton wins the nomination because of many of her supporters are clueless on winning votes. If her campaign and supporters treats members of her own party with such great contempt, is she going to treat independent voters the same way in the general election, and potentially turn them off voting for the democratic candidate?

1. Hillary has put unity on the back burner as she tries to disqualify Bernie.

There will be no unity.

The Republicans will turn out in droves to vote against the Clinton family.

#Not With Her; Never

2. Hillary has already turned off a super majority of independents.

She has also turned off many in her own Party.

With all of the scandals that will be thrown in her face during a Ge I have severe doubts she can win the WH. It seems her top job is to prevent Bernie from winning in ANY way possible. I am sure her paydays will still be very, very nice if she is successful. Most of America will not be so lucky, and I doubt she cares about that a bit.

Her trustworthy numbers will only get worse, and for good reason.

3. Bernie knows exactly how far he can go in his criticisms of Hillary

He's deliberately held back because he doesn't want to give the Republicans ammunition to use against her if she is the nominee. Hillary has no such scruples because a) she regards herself as inevitable, so why bother?; and b) she'd rather see President Trump than President Sanders if she were to lose the nomination.
