A member of the Webner family who is feeling the Bern went to Sanders HQ here in Columbus to do some campaign work today and snapped a few photos. Sanders campaign volunteers were busily working the phones, canvasing the city, and generally doing what is necessary for a presidential campaign to do on a primary election day.
Turnout is reported to be good in Columbus. One concern for Democrats is that lifelong Ds may have decided to vote in the Republican primary to cast a vote against Donald Trump. (I know at least one person who falls into that category.) If that kind of backlash vote is happening, what might it mean for the Ohio Democratic primary results? I don’t know for sure, obviously, but I wonder: who is more likely to not vote for their candidate and vote against Trump — Clinton voters, who don’t seem terribly enthusiastic about their candidate to begin with, or those fired-up, true believer Sanders backers?
Right now, it feels like it’s anybody’s ballgame.
