FWIW this is exactly what I think. I mislabeled ( intentionally) the Bernie or Busters as third party votes in absentia. In effect there were (i believe) a significant number of voters who still “voted” for Bernie Sanders even though he wasn’t in the race anymore. Those voters had a big part in Trump being elected.
I wasn’t there. You were. I hypothesized that this was intentional; their plan. Not their evil plan, but how could they not realize that withholding that many votes from HRC would lead to a trump presidency. Especially since EVERYONE WAS TELLING THEM THAT.
Don’t get me wrong- it is quite an ethical conundrum. Do you vote for HRC after the DNC’s unequal treatment in the primaries possibly lost Sanders the nomination? And even if it didn’t, it’s shady behavior from the democratic camp. Do you trust them again?
Do you vote for her racist, bigoted, narcissistic opponent?
I get it. But it doesn’t change the consequences.
I’m happy to run the numbers.
