Than Divides

A very large number of the supporters of Bernie Sanders would not vote for Hillary Clinton.

They are not partisan Democrats. They do not even like the Democratic Party, about which there is no shortage of things to dislike.

They are in it only in order to nominate Sanders. He himself joined it for the first time only last year, in his seventies.

If he were not on the ballot, then they simply would not vote.

They have no political reason to vote for Clinton, who is against everything that they stand for on the economic and foreign policy issues that move them.

The Culture Wars of well-heeled Baby Boomers mean nothing to them, and the War Wars of well-heeled Baby Boomers are positively abhorrent to them.
