I ended up 52/48 Sanders over Clinton. Not that surprising for me. I'm not a huge fan of either one though, and there are some Republican candidates I'd pick over either of them. Before I could back Sanders, I'd need to see how the Congressional races are going. I don't see him having an effective presidency if he's stuck with a conservative Congress and conservative leaning Supreme Court.

I mean, for me that's part of his appeal, and what's great about the way he's framing his campaign: he's the candidate that can energize voters (particularly young voters) not only to vote for him, but also to bring in liberals in downballot races.
