Majority of Bernie Sanders supporters are flocking to Green party candidate Jill Stein

New polls suggest majority of Bernie Sanders supporters are flocking to Green party candidate Jill Stein.

Polls released after the 2016 Democratic National Convention look good for Jill Stein. The Green Party candidate appears to be attracting support from Bernie supporters after their candidate was officially knocked out of the race at this year’s convention. Despite Bernie Sanders himself endorsing Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, many of his supporters still refuse to give their backing to the party’s candidate, instead deciding to look outside of the party and to a third party candidate.

According to the People’s Pundit Daily, Green Party candidate Jill Stein is slowly picking up support for her 2016 campaign, with a lot of that support coming at the expense of Hillary Clinton. Recent polling was conducted before and after the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week, showing many of Bernie Sanders’ supporters swinging towards Jill Stein after their candidate endorsed Hillary Clinton at the convention, telling his supporters that they must now give their full support to Clinton.
However, many of Bernie’s supporters don’t appear to have taken his words to heart. Whilst Hillary Clinton has managed to maintain 94.4% of voters who cast their ballot for her in the primaries earlier this year, only 47.7% of those who voted for Bernie Sanders in the primaries are certain that they’ll cast their vote in support of Clinton.

Jill Stein isn’t the only candidate benefiting from a distaste for Hillary Clinton amongst Bernie supporters, however. The same aforementioned poll found that 16% of Bernie Sanders’ supporters now say that they plan to vote for Republican nominee Donald Trump. That shift in support for Donald Trump from Bernie Sanders’ supporters isn’t too much of a surprise, though, considering both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have run campaigns based on an anti-establishment and crucially, anti-Wall Street message.

In fact, many Bernie supporters who have switched their support to either Jill Stein or Donald Trump don’t believe that the federal government acts in their best interests. Hillary Clinton is widely seen as the establishment figure in the 2016 presidential race, which could suggest why many Bernie supporters don’t feel comfortable voting for her. At the same time, Jill Stein appears to be picking up support from voters who chose a candidate other than Sanders or Clinton during the primary elections.
That being said, Jill Stein still has hurdles to overcome if she wants to become a credible player in the 2016 presidential election. According to Forbes, the Green party candidate has been plagued by her anti-vaccine views, which could cost her a good deal of support amongst liberal voters looking for an alternative to Hillary Clinton.

During an interview at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week, Jill Stein was forced to explain her views on vaccination once and for all. The Green Party candidate explained that she couldn’t deny the fact that vaccines have been critical in ridding the world of serious diseases, however, she’s still concerned about them, saying “That people do not trust a Food and Drug Administration, or even the CDC for that matter, where corporate influence and the pharmaceutical industry has a lot of influence.”

Whether Jill Stein can overcome questions about her views on vaccination remains to be seen. However, her presence alone in the 2016 presidential race, alongside other third party candidates, could drastically change the shape of politics as voters become further disenfranchised with the main two parties.

Actually, Jill is even more progressive than Bernie so I am 100% behind her now.

Bernie has betrayed us all, and has Lost the respect of many of us, who poured our hearts and souls and money into his campaign!

Don't be fooled, if Trump becomes president, Hillary, The DNC, DWS, and her supporters are to blame. Don't blame Bernie supporters because of a lackluster campaign, and a general distrust by the American people.

Pycnogenol might help with osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a health condition that pycnogenol may benefit due to its anti-inflammatory effects. A study in the April 2008 "Phytotherapy Research" journal reports the effects of 100 mg of pycnogenol on osteoarthritic symptoms after three months of supplementation.

Walking distance was prolonged, medication doses decreased, treatment costs decreased and swelling in the ankles decreased in comparison to the placebo.

iHerb has over 30 Pycnogenol Products to choose from.
