What if Trump went independent with a Trump Party and Bernie left he Democrats and ran under the Socialist Party?

Does that mean Cruz wins?

Both Sanders and Trump supporters would never jump ship, I’m one of them and I know I wouldn’t.

So, what do you think would happen if this were to occur?

I feel that if this were to happen then the results would be ranked as:

#1: Hillary wins, Trump second place.

#2: Trump wins, Hillary second place.

#3: Sanders win, Trump second place.

Thoughts or complaints?

Under your scenario, Sanders would drop (or else) or have an accident / sudden health issue and Clinton would be president.

They are clearly the running favourites - from a citizen / voter perspective.

They are clearly not the favourites - from a corporate / establishment / bankster perspective.

Therefore they would not make it alive to November, but suicided via multiple gunshot wounds in a car accident of natural causes.

I don't think they'd be killed. It wouldn't be necessary. The important thing would be stopping them from getting on the ballot. Every State has different deadlines for that, & if they couldn't get on the ballot, they'd have to do "write in" campaigns. Good luck with that.

Also, most of the powerful "left wing" infrastructure is really a "Democratic" infrastructure. Dailykos, DemocraticUnderground, Code Blue, and other sites like that usually ban campaigning and promotion of non-Democratic candidates. That kind of censorship would hurt an independent Bernie campaign drastically.

Think of it like this: most of Bernie's current supporters didn't even know who he was until he decided to run as a Democratic candidate for President. Before that, everyone was still on the Elizabeth Warren bandwagon. That needs repeating. Bernie, an old guy who's been in the system longer than many of his supporters have been alive, was a virtual unknown until he ran as a Democratic candidate last year. Until then, the Democratic power structure typically ignored him or wrote him off as a left wing extremist. And the same goes for many of the people who support him now.

What if Trump and Sanders Split.

I don't think it will make any real difference at all. I happen to think the organisers have arranged a Clinton win.

For that they they need a powerhouse Republican candidate to keep all the other republicans out but who will drop out at the last minute or will not mind loosing for the greater cause.

Sanders is very popular but so was Ron Paul and they made sure he didn't get the nomination didn't they?

Perhaps asking why there is no Ron Paul in this election is warranted seeing how he and Sanders have, or could have, a lot in common if they wanted to.

I read, during the last election, that one tactic that has been used before, and presumably there are other tactics, is to boost a donkey into a horse and then let it fall back into a donkey in the dying stages of the race, to get the real horse home at the finishing line.
