Why Trump will (and will not) win in November

Michael Moore lists five reasons he thinks Trump will win. J. W. Holland at goodmenproject.org counters with "five reasons Trump Won’t Win." Scriber adds a sixth reason to worry - coming from my worst nightmare: Berniecrats turned Burniecrats.

Bernie supporters are proof of the problem with revolutions - they can turn on their own. Elizabeth Warren got booed. Bernie himself got booed and (some of) his supporters apparently think that Donald Trump is a good idea. The NY Times reports.

As delegates streamed out, a handful of Mr. Sanders’s most dedicated supporters held up his signs and chanted, “Hey, hey, D.N.C., we won’t vote for Hillary.”

Chants of “Bernie beats Trump” and “hell no, D.N.C., we won’t vote for Hillary,” echoed through the surrounding parking lots.

“She’s crooked as all get out,” said Brianne Colling, of Canton, Mich. “All the proof that’s coming out is that she’s stolen this election from Bernie.”

There is no such proof. There is no connection between DNC staff emails (released by Russian hackers) and Clinton's vote count. All I can say to those Burniecrats is to quote Sara Silverman (from the Times' report):

"Can I just say to the Bernie-or-bust people,” she said, adopting their own nickname, “you are being ridiculous.”
