I am a woman and I should be very excited, but I feel so conflicted.
I was hoping it would be Bernie Sanders. Now I am more scared than ever that Mr. Trump -if he indeed will be the Republican nominee- will become the next President of the United States of America.
Donald Trump has a chance with Hillary Clinton as his opponent, too many don’t like her; too many don’t trust her. Let’s hope that things will change. Perhaps the superdelegates will change their mind? (Why again do we have superdelegates?)
I live in a Republican state -a swing state- and I listened carefully to my friends and neighbors, many of them are Republicans. They are normal people and interesting enough, all of them are watching the Democratic race with great interest.
Many of them would vote for Bernie Sanders, instead of The Donald, but none of them will EVER vote for Hillary Clinton. They will rather vote for the Republican nominee -even though they can’t stand him- to block her. Hillary Clinton nomination unwillingly unites the Republican party -against her.
Everyday people want change -it’s so obvious- even if the change is a bad tempered reality TV star, who has absolutely no clue about politics.
The superdelegates -the ones who already voted for Hillary Clinton before the primary election- they are the ones who tell us that we, the normal voter, don’t matter. They want Clinton, they owe her.
This has to be the saddest election ever, at least it is for me. Is that all we have to offer, a billionaire and a millionaire asking for more power?
As a democratic voter (please note the lowercase “d”), I will have to vote for Hillary Clinton now; not because I like her, but because we have to stop The Donald from becoming the next President. A tactical vote, or the lesser evil; I am not sure what to call it.
Assuming that every independent voter will do the same, is wishful thinking. That’s what makes Hillary Clinton -in my eyes- a risk candidate.
Thank you Bernie Sanders, you were like a breath of fresh air.
Don’t yield; stick it out to the democratic convention. There is still hope!
