Not saying no Sanders supporters will vote trump, but I and lots of others plan to vote for Jill Stein, green party if Sen Sanders is not the Dem
Same here. I was just talking w/a close friend about that yesterday. I've finally reached a point where I can't vote for Hillary even if Trump is the
nominee. The Dem establishment has completely alienated me. My friend laughed and said I was late to the party lol.
Though I will add 2 things.
1) I don't think Stein has locked up the Green Party nomination yet. So there's always the chance they'll have a different candidate.
2) The Green Party is starting to irk me. This is the perfect recruitment opportunity for them and I think they're blowing it! A large portion of the
electorate is independent, and many of us accept large parts of socialism and progressivism. Bernie's vast support proves this.
The Green Party (and the other actual left wing parties) should be incredibly aggressive right now so they can attract as many of these people as
possible. They should be constantly reminding people that there is another option and that nobody has to vote for the lesser of 2 evils (same goes for
the supposed Libertarians). Instead, people are choosing
to vote for the lesser of 2 evils because they'd rather vote for an evil "winner" than
a good "potential loser". That's ironic because the good "losers" would win if more people voted based on their supposed principles instead of
cult-like party affiliations.
