I have heard no less than five [CONSERVATIVE THINK TANK] staffers say they voted for Obama today. Personally I think their calculus is all wrong and I plan to vote for Hillary later today.

I don’t think anyone in this building will vote for Obama in the general, but I would take it as a sign that conservatives are less than motivated by the name at the top of their ticket.
