As a Democrat, are you hoping Hillary wraps up the nomination and gets enough delegates to avoid a contested convention and unify the party?

Or are you hoping Bernie keeps building his momentum and essentially forces a contested convention? Perhaps he closes the gap and is only behind in single digits or maybe he takes the lead.

If you are Hillary supporter, would you support a Anyone but Bernie Movement?

Assume Hillary cannot win the nomination, would you support Bernie or another candidate?

I'm an Independent, not a Democrat, but I am a Hillary Clinton supporter...and want her to win.

I have no problem with Bernie Sanders campaign...and since I think he advocates for many things I support, I wish him well in his campaign. I see benefits from what he has been advocating.

If Bernie Sanders were to win the nomination...I would vote for him in the General Election with a huge smile on my face. I just think that the chances of a victory for the Democrats is better with Hillary Clinton than with Bernie Sanders...and I DO NOT want a Republican elected to the presidency.

This isn't the GOP, so the drama is not going to be there- there will be no 'anyone but (fill in the blank)' movement. The process will play out as it should in both parties and I predict there will be a winner going into the convention.

ASS-U-ME isn't productive most of the time and this is one of those times... Either candidate is better than the Orange Guy or Lurch- however that is a very low bar... ;)

False-equivalency questions remain the legacy of Eric Cantor .

Why not?

She is a much better choice than I am being offered by the other party...and I think she has a better chance than Bernie Sanders at winning the General Election.

I really do not want a Republican in the White House...so having the Democratic Party candidate win is important to me.

I've been rooting for, and voted for, even gave money to, Bernie Sanders. I would like it for him to win.

Not a democrat. But I will vote for anybody but Trump. I do wish Kasich had a better chance of getting the nod. Then all my inner-conflicts would be absolved. :lamo

That is a vote for a Republican.

So you support a Republican winning if Sanders is not the Dem candidate? Do you know what that makes you? A Trump supporter. :lol:

Nah, It's a vote for nobody.

No. It's a sellout. Bernie fans who would do this would have the exact same effect as an undecided voter who votes Republican.

Lol, the "independent" who only supports democrats and only promotes leftist ideals. Seriously, why do you insist on referring to yourself as an "independent"? What's the point?

It is a vote with the potential to help the Republican candidate.

You may live in a state where it may not matter, but if it matters...voting the way you say you will IS, in effect, a vote for the Republicans.

Don't do it, Governess. Rise above whatever bothers you about Hillary Clinton.

I voted for Ronald Reagan.

The reason I insist on referring to myself as an Independent (that is with a capital "I")...is because I am registered as an Independent.

No, it shows that I won't support either candidate in the presidential election.

If enough Sanders supporters do that (if Sanders does not get the Democratic nomination)...it will help throw the election to the Republicans.

Just as, if enough Trump supporters do that (if Trump does not get the Republican nomination)...it will help throw the election to the Democrats.

The words "nose" "face" "cut-off" and "spite" all come to mind.

Honestly, I don't really care. I'll still vote 3rd Party.
