      Notice which candidate got the “Income inequality” issue vote.

      • dakinikat says:

        Did you see that a lot of the vote Bernie got was basically cross over republicans?

          I can’t figure that out from this data. Where do you see it? Or do you mean that the Repubs mounted a real campaign to mess around with the Dem primary?

          • dakinikat says:

            yes they did … the entry poll said 12% were republicans coming to polls to vote for bernie … it was called operation chaos

            This is the WaPo article which has the info on all the other candidates and characteristics of the voters: Not sure how well other than polling one can tell who’s Dem or R. The absentee ballot requests for white voters were double that of the previous election, whereas for black voters the increase was small. The white increase could indeed mean it’s from Rs.

            I think the ‘economic inequality’ issue doesn’t really drive Bernie v non-Bernie voters that much. Maybe the voters are smart enough to know Bernie can’t deliver. For example, in ’16 the voters most concerned about the economy went for Hillary, not Trump, though that was the general, not a primary.

      Elizabeth warren just raised 29 million for the Quarter and she’s running in second in both texas and california …

      There’s definitely no way there’s a plurality and this might be convention strategy time …

      just what I can see right now …

      Excellent news! The more I see of him, the less I can stand him. Maybe now we’ll see less of him.
