Back to Flags original post, I have two issues with it:

1) The polls. They don't count because they are asking a rhetorical question, the people simply can't imagine it actually happening, their candidate losing. Sure they don't like the other guy, but asking something like "suppose your guy loses to "that guy", would you vote for "that guy" anyway? Is a non-sense question. Until they are actually having to make that decision, for real, they won't be making it.

2) People have short memories. The turmoil and fighting will soon be over, one way or another, then there is several months until November. The messages will shift, the tones and targets will shift, all will be if not forgotten, faded into the background.

Of course all that could be wrong if whomever loses doesn't go quietly after the convention.
