Betty's "cases" are a self-selected sample and thus not representative.
If you spread out on the whole internet that all Clinton supporters should
contact you, and a few thousand do, then you can hardly claim that there are
"hundreds of thousands" Clinton supporters.
Exaggeration weakens an argument, instead of strengthening it.
