Thank you for this--so important to educate oneself before voting and I am afraid most do not. On the news the other night I herd that Hillary was the "only declared Democratic candidate." Because Bernie is not an official Democrat.
By the way, even VT's conservatives like Bernie. Although probably VT and conservative does not really compute in the rest of the country.
