The Democratic primary isn't anywhere as bitter as it looks online

Engineer, listen! This is important.

Max, read! It really isn't all that important, but I'm posting in a thread about how the primary isn't as bitter as it looks online and it looks bitter online. I am speculating about behaviors we've seen online (and had spill into real life) and some of the potential root causes. If that isn't a discussion you want to have, don't have it. If you want to argue that Sanders and Clinton supporters both engage in this type of behavior and that I'm just overlooking all the Clinton supporters when they threaten reporters and delegates, feel free to post that. If you want to propose a different hypothesis as to why we only see this behavior from partisans of certain candidates, I'd like to hear it. If you want me to stifle my ponderings because they upset you, that's not going to happen. I'm here to discuss stuff, not get with your program.

@sozobe,
Yeah, and the Pollster average never had Trump overtaking Clinton in the first place:

@nimh,
I am not at all worried in the outcome of this election.

Clinton will win it easily. There is no doubt that barring something truly unexpected Clinton will be our next president.

That doesn't mean that the debates between her and Trump, and the continuing meltdown of the Republican party, won't be awfully fun to watch.

I don’t have 1 iota of trust in Perez, but Bernie seems to have extracted a deal he ostensibly trusts... or can use later in a lawsuit.

NOTHING will ever be more interesting than the coming year and change in American politics....and associated global ramifications.
