Romper: Sanders supporters “taking a close look” at Stein

SteinSandersBecky Bracken writes at Romper that supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders “are increasingly rejecting the idea of shifting their support” to Hillary Clinton and are instead “taking a close look at Dr. Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate. So why are Bernie Sanders supporters supporting Jill Stein? Because she’s not Clinton, who has all the baggage of decades of being labeled as ‘corrupt’ by her foes and the media and a less-than-inspiring campaign style. Stein has also been pretty smart about seeing an opening to court Sanders’ enthusiastic legions of followers who deeply believe that a political revolution is the only solution to the problems facing America.”

And in a letter to the editor of The Springfield Republican in Massachusetts, reader Charlotte Burns writes, “If people would stop letting themselves be bullied into voting for Hillary and show some courage by voting for independents like the Greens’ Jill Stein, maybe we could break the stranglehold of corporate controlled Democrats and Republicans. Maybe this country could be ‘great’ again. … A country that spends its riches on taking care of its people and this planet and not on turning people worldwide into corpses and refugees while we create more enemies by wrecking their countries and making their people homeless.”
