Columbia PHD-Student Would Love 11th Hour Upset

WIN_20160422_170255

Name: Rebecca Pawel
Borough: Manhattan
I will vote: Bernie Sanders

“I support Sanders for a variety of reasons, but mostly because I agree with his policy ideas.”

“I think a single-payer healthcare system is the only way healthcare costs in this country will eventually be reined in. Equally importantly, I approve of Sanders’ foreign policy positions. I also approve of Sanders’ positions on Israel and Palestine, something which is important to me as an American Jew who is interested in peace and justice.”

“I never thought Sanders would win, although for a few brief weeks it looked as if he might pull off an upset.  I know people in California who are hoping to vote for him, so I hope he stays in for all the primaries so they get the chance.  I’d love it if he pulled off a stunning 11th hour upset, though I think it’s vanishingly unlikely.  But I also think that Clinton is such a weak candidate that there’s really nothing he can do that can hurt her more than she’s already hurt herself.”

“I think the Democratic party needs to stand for something other than ‘we’re less bad than the Republicans.’  I’ve spent a considerable amount of time in Europe  where Sanders’ positions are strictly middle-of-the-road.  I’d like it if they were middle-of-the road here as well.”

“While I initially assumed that of course I would support Sanders as long as possible but would settle for Clinton reasonably happily in the general, the more I find out about her the more disturbed I am by her positions.”
