Response to Donkees (Reply #43)

47. And this is why it's naive to think these voters can be reasoned with.

 

Stack up their top issues and I guarantee you hardly any of these same voters put infrastructure at the top of their list. So, it's irrelevant how many actually support it when it's not a top priority for them. Why? Because regardless if they support it, they're not voting based on it - they're voting based on social issues. There is zero way to appeal to these folks without compromising positions on gay rights, abortion rights and taking a strong pro second amendment view with gun control.

It's not worth. Bernie is a fool if he believes it is.
