    I hope that if there's a Sanders regime that it's not all conspiracy theories. One Conspiracy Theorist regime was enough.

    I would hope that the Sanders haters would develop the ability to confront reality, but apparently not.

    I'm not sure that statement helps your case. The "everyone but me is blind to the obvious problem" mentality is typical of the conspiracy theorist mindset, right?

    Let me re-phrase for clarity.

    I would hope that if people are trying to debate my arguments that they would actually quote what I'm saying and the articles I'm linking to instead of, you know, making bullshit blanket statements with zero links or proof of anything, directed at discrediting me instead of focusing on what I've posted.

    You guys seem to think I post link and quotes for fun.

    I've heard separately from family members (parents, brother) and all are anti-sanders at this point. My brother argues that this election should be a slam-dunk to oust Trump and is fearful that the democrats are alienating the middle. He believes the economy will look pretty good come election time and the left will put up someone who promises to blow it up leading a lot of the middle who should be easy pickings to hold their noses and vote trump. None of them have any faith in the youth vote actually materializing.

    Yeah, that's pretty much my family and my wife's family as well, but I'm not sure they have any real sense of what will move voters in swing states to come out and vote out Trump. I'm not entirely sure any of us do.

    I'm going to assume that the conspiracy regime you speak of is the one currently in office.

    As to all Sanders supporters being alike, not so. Though I expect Sanders to ask for a recanvas as .1% shouldn't net 2 delegates. I also would Think that NV is going to be closely monitored this time around and that whomever is in charge of monitoring the count is going to be from someone's campaign so until I see bias, I'm not going to accuse someone of it.

    So would they actually vote Trump if Sanders is the nominee?

    I struggle with seeing a strong economy co-existing with a slam dunk win over Trump.

    I am in the same boat as you and heyelander. One difference is I'm on a college campus, so I have a front row view of the population that could make or break Sanders. I do think Sanders will push those in the middle away. In the Corn, folks in Hey's, your's, and my family and circles of adult friends. But the question I agree we don't have the answer to is this--will there be more millennial voters coming out in the key states to vote for Sanders than the gen xers and boomers that would stay home if Sanders is the nominee? I really wish I knew the answer to that one.
