Bernie Buster here:. I will never in good conscience vote for someone I think should be in prison, even "to support the party."

What party should I support? The one that fucked Bernie over left and right? The one that is still ignoring the fact that we still haven't had the convention yet?

Fuck them.

This right here. I registered dem just to vote for Bernie in my state and returned to unaffiliated the day after. I don't owe any party shit.

NooooO! You were supposed to leave the day after the convention or the date counting of primary votes were done.

In my state you don't need to register for a party. They should really focus on getting rid of that too. When I started hearing people were getting turned away from voting this time because of stupid shit like that, while republicans are claiming to be concerned with voter fraud..... I think this is the biggest fraud ever. More than the 2 illegal votes for the millions of dollars they spent doing the voter ID bullshit - this was an issue in multiple states, with hundreds of people, but they are silent.

Hopefully this will be the year of the third party. Go Libertarian and Green Party!

Even if a third party doesn't win which will probably be the case.. if a third party could capture 10% of the vote it will force the duopoly parties to at least throw the voters a bone instead of just doing what their donors want 100% of the time.

Would you waste your vote if 3rd party can't win though?

It's only wasting your vote if you prefer one major candidate over another major candidate. Some people aren't concerned with choosing between a shit sandwich and a giant douche.

Allow me to repost my comment from about a month ago:

Sanders support here. You hit the nail on the head, $hillary just says whatever she needs to at the moment. If Sanders doesn't get the nomination, I WILL vote to 'Make America Great Again', because fuck Cunton, and fuck establishment.

And I meant it. Unless she gets indicated, she's going to get the nomination. In that case, I'm voting for Trump. Clinton is a disgusting pathological liar.

There's a write in slot on the ballot. Stop playing I VOTE FOR WHAT THEY TOLD ME TO. Apparently I have to change my reply slightly vs. restating it otherwise it get's blocked.

I'm not 'voting for what they told me to' if Sanders can't get the nomination, I'm voting for Trump. End of story. I may not agree with everything he says, but I like him better than Clinton.

I'm one of them. The DNC proved how shady it actually was this year and now many of us are realizing that a vote for either party is a vote for the same old shit in a red or blue tie.

I suspect that the number is far lower than the article claims. I've always been a true independent voter, and my candidate choices for various offices have been republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Green, etc based on the person, the platform and the job at hand. I'm used to nobody knowing who my candidate is, being accused of ruining elections, and seeing "5% of the vote" as a victory.

Most of these people are not. I know of one ardent sanders supporter who I actually believe will vote third party or write-in in the fall. Everyone else, when actually pushed on the issue, says "I'll do what it takes to stop trump", which is shorthand for voting for She who shall not be named.

Anyone who actually believed in Sanders message who opts to vote "establishment" is spineless, weak and uncommitted. Their true beliefs are for sale, just like their final choice of candidate.

The narrative that large numbers of Sanders supporters are going to switch to Trump is ludicrous. There will be some, but those will be outliers. Trump's "policies" are anathema to progressives and liberals--not to mention whatever "socialist" supporters Sanders has. There is literally NOTHING about Trump that would attract a Sanders supporter unless their only criteria was to elect an "outsider" candidate. This is not only stupid, but pretty insulting to Sanders supporters since it reduces their support to an unprincipled, non-ideological level.

Previous election cycles have shown that about 90% of people who supported the vanquished candidate end up supporting the nominee, and that will hold this time (it might actually be higher since nearly all Progressives & Liberals view Trump as a dangerous demagogue). The reality is that the ideological and policy differences between Clinton and Sanders are a matter of degrees whereas the other candidates (especially Trump) represent a radically different (and repugnant) approach for them.

Sanders will endorse Clinton as soon as he gets a few concessions from the DNC. After that he'll give some widely covered speeches against Donald Trump. Sanders despises Trump and considers him an existential threat to our nation--people who have really supported Bernie's positions don't need this cue, but he'll give it to them regardless.

I'm a Bernie supporter currently planning on voting for Trump simply to demonstrate to the Democrats that if they continue to be a party of pathetic half-asses that cave under pressure on some of the most fundamental issues of our era then they deserve to be annihilated. After 8 years of Obama having promised the most open and transparent government in modern history, a promise he flatly broke, we are now supposed to vote for a candidate that went from being overall in debt from legal fees to having a net worth of over $100 million giving "speeches" to the likes of Goldman Sachs that she won't let any of the plebs know the contents of. Guantanamo is still open, we're still invading Middle Eastern countries constantly, we're still mandated to buy insurance from private for-profit companies without the availability of a public option, and the banks are bigger than ever and know they'll never be challenged again. Meanwhile for all of these "successes" the Republicans have managed to corner every state and local government in the country through redistricting.

Maybe if they lose the White House to Trump it will be enough of a disaster to force the party to actually grow some balls and change direction, rather than spending all their time screaming mindlessly about how women and minorities are soooo important so that everyone forgets how little they actually accomplish.

Count me as another write in. I'm an adult and I will not be bullied and scared into voting for anyone. It's a voluntary action within my civic rights to vote for who I want.

I am an American damn it! We do not bend the knee.

If you're a sanders supporter, I suppose I have an out of left field question for you, especially since you've mentioned your rights (such as voting for whom you please). Disregard if you're not.

Do you have issues with Senator Sanders actively voting to use the horribly flawed "no fly list" to blanket-ban US citizens from using their 2nd amendment rights with absolutely no due process or legal recourse? I mean, the guy had two amendments in front of him, one was the blanket ban, and one included (delayed) judicial checks. He chose the one with no legal recourse and voted against having the courts involved when it comes to taking away someones rights? I could understand him voting no on both, but it seems like he very deliberately chose to not give a damn about peoples rights.

I'm in the same boat. Very much a Sanders supporter, but if it comes down to Shillary or Trump, I'll vote Tump every time.

Even if the Hilldebeast is the party nominee, why not write in Bernie? If he gets enough votes, maybe next election, it could be the start of a viable third party. Jebus knows we need something to shake things up.
