Breaking: Sanders Supporters Won’t Back Clinton even if he Endorsed her
Democratic presidential candidate, Sen. Bernie Sanders has the support of the ordinary American people and that support day by day more and more growing. His rival, current democratic front runner, Hillary Clinton is trying to lay the groundwork for bringing Bernie Sanders supporters into her camp but that task might be more difficult than she or anyone in her party thinks.
According to Inquisitr, in the event that Bernie Sanders does not get the Democratic nomination in the 2016 presidential race, the Democratic party has a huge problem on their hands. Many of Sanders’ supporters are making it clear that they are “Bernie or Bust,” meaning that if he doesn’t get the nomination, they still won’t vote for Hillary Clinton. This spells big trouble for the Clinton campaign and will definitely make it hard for her to beat any Republican nominee.
Sanders has been compared to Ralph Nader as far as his power to split the Democratic party, but that isn’t necessarily the case. Sanders has said before, whether it will actually be the case or not, that he won’t run as an Independent if he doesn’t win the Democratic nomination.
That doesn’t mean all his supporters are a sure thing to move on over to vote for Hillary Clinton though. Actually, many Sanders supporters have vowed to vote “Bernie or Bust” and will either write him in for the general election or vote for any number of people who are not Hillary Clinton.
The Revolt Against Plutocracy campaign is asking Bernie Sanders’ supporters to make a pledge to either write in Sanders or vote for the Green Party in the event that he doesn’t win the Democratic nomination.During his interview on MSNBC, in a town hall, Sanders announced that he would not tell his supporters to vote for Hillary, saying it was her job to woo his supporters.
