    I hope down ticket dems like Feingold don't suffer because of Her

    I live in MA where every member of my state’s delegation got behind Her in the primary long before it started so, I won’t even bother voting down ticket for anyone unless she/he is a Green. But with the dumpster fire that the HRH campaign has borne out to be, it’s possible that some good progressives like Feingold might be afterthoughts down the ballot. let’s hope not.

    1. I voted for Democrats all down my ticket except for president.

    There are still some good Democrats out there or some who are at least better than the Republican alternatives. I agree that Hillary’s negatives are hurting some good progressives because of the party association. As much as I dislike the Democratic Party I don’t relish the realistic alternative, which is the GOP.

    2. If Russ loses it will be DIRECTLY because of her.

    With Bernie he would have won by 10 points due to turnout.

    If the weather is bad on Tuesday it will be a down ticket blood bath.

    4. I don't think that will happen.

    He isn’t ‘Herself’s’. His progressivism will carry him..it’s the status quo that’ll sink some acolyte Dem like that Claire McCaskil.

    5. Jill Stein was the only candidate I voted for.

    The party has lost my vote for the foreseeable future.

    6. I believe that ship has already sailed.

    I stand with the protesters at Standing Rock. This is the fight of our lifetime.

    7. Down ticket dems stayed silent while the DNC stole the election from Bernie

    Not a one of them deserve my concern or my support and they’re not getting it.

    The entire party needs to be overhauled from the ground up or go the way of the dinosaurs.

    I couldn’t care less otherwise.

      12. ^ this ^

      Bernie endorsed Russ, days later Russ endorsed HRC. I truly believe that he, Bayh & other “retired” Dems were strongly encouraged by The Machine to get back in so as to rubber stamp her agenda in the Senate.

      For that reason, even as a 20 year Feingold supporter, I hope they lose.

    8. I gave Russ the benefit of doubt and voted for him

    I believe a lot of down ticket candidates don’t dare oppose the clinton machine.

    Which is why we the voters must break it, reject it, and cast it to the scrapheap of history.

    9. I don't have any good Dems like Feingold on my ballot.

    Just DWS’s former-republican lap dogs. I’m hoping Her drags down down-ballot Dems.  Wish I had some BernieCrats to vote for, hope they do well.

    11. Russ's main problem will be some of the totally corrupt county officials

    The same ones who handed his seat to that dumbass pedophile in 2010, and who sabotaged the recall of that moronic Koch puppet, Snotty Walker.

    Fuck Trump, Fuck the "Alt Right", and Fuck anybody who defends either one. Oh, and Fuck Hillary too.
