I saw this post on a Facebook page that nominally supports Bernie Sanders:
While I do support instant-runoff voting, it won’t do any good for me for this election.
If I was to name the candidates I’d vote for in this election:
1) Bernie Sanders
2) whoever the Green Party candidate is this time around
3) Donald Trump/Ted Cruz/Mike Huckabee, etc.
Yes. I would vote for any of the republicans before I would vote for HRC.
That’s why I don’t think I’m spoiling anything for the DNC- if it wasn’t for Bernie, I wouldn’t be voting democrat anyway.
While I don’t support the GOP, I trust them to stick to what they’ve said more than I do Hillary.
That’s what some of you seem incapable of understanding – not all Bernie supporters are democrat. Not all Bernie supporters were going to vote democrat if not for Bernie.
As such, if all of us who won’t vote for Hillary no matter what commit to Bernie or Bust, we won’t be spoiling anything for the DNC. We won’t be taking votes away from them, we’ll be taking them away from the GOP and Green Party.
Then there are those who had no intention of voting for anyone until they heard about Bernie. All those disenfranchised voters turned off by the game of politics.
All we’ll be doing is quantifying the number of independent voters who would have voted democrat just to get Bernie in office.
Yall are acting as if we’re taking away from HRC. In reality, she was never an option for some of us to begin with. Bernie just gave us hope.
