I volunteer for the Sanders campaign, and some of the people there are very anti-Hillary. They are like the Nader supporters in 2000, they feel there is no difference between the two parties and feel like anyone other than Sanders is pointless.
So if Hillary wins the primary in 2000 (especially considering the fact that there are some criticisms of how the Iowa caucus went down and if there was foul play) is there a chance that some Bernie supporters will stay home and then swing the election?
Obama won 2012 by 5 million votes. Since this is a 3rd term for a democrat I assume the democrat will win by a smaller margin, is it possible that 1-2 million Sanders supporters will be so disgusted by this election cycle that they stay home? Or will it be like 2008 when people were afraid Hillary supporters wouldn’t support Obama, but Obama ended up winning by 9 million votes?
