Many of Bernie's supporters have sworn they will never vote for Hillary. Would you rather have them vote for Trump or Jill Stein?
Now you are being disingenuous.

Trump's pulling even? Who cares, the polls are meaningless at this stage.
You know ,angrysoba, I am now convinced you WANT Trump to win because it will confirm all you negative opinions about Americans.
Just remember, if Trump wins and pulls America down the drainpipe, the vacuum created will suck a great many countries down with it.

Remember, YOUR'RE the one trying to defend your preferred candidate. Generally, when a candidate engages in behavior that people look down on, a defense of "why do you care?" doesn't cut it.

YOU may not care that Clinton wears puppy-skin slippers to bed, but you should be cognizant of the fact that most people do.

I wonder how many times the news has reported small leads in the national polls between Clinton and Trump or Bernie as a "statistical tie" while reversed numbers with either Sanders or Trump ahead by one or two points is reported as, "closing the gap" or, more often, "pulling ahead"?

Other people are stupid then.

When a politician lies about policy, I care. When a politician steals from the government, I care. When a politician pushes through policy that is ruinous and will cause great injury, I care.

What is wrong with how I do this?
