Here is a piece from a progressive voter who claims Bernie Sanders supporters are more likely to vote for Trump than Clinton if Clinton gets the Democratic nomination:
Democrats who support Bernie Sanders and Republicans who support Trump may disagree on where America should go, but both agree on the need for America to radically change direction. A lot of Progressives aren’t looking at this race as a Dem vs Rep race. A lot of Progressives are looking at it as an Establishment vs Anti Establishment race.
I’ve been a Progressive my whole life and this is the first time in my life that I am coming across Progressives that say they would rather vote for Trump than HC just because he’s Anti-Establishment.
Unless of course Bernie Sanders decides to run as an Independent last minute.
Many are saying the’ll write in Bernie’s name.
This is a very interesting topic in MANY Progressive Blogs…
I have never come across so many fellow Progressive Democrats that feel so disheartened, so unattached with the Democratic Party.
Many are saying they are planning on going Independent, but say they will ALWAYS be Activists…
In Massachusetts –
“Secretary of State William Galvin said more than 16,300 Democrats have shed their party affiliation and become independent voters since Jan. 1, while nearly 3,500 more shifted to the MassGOP ahead of tomorrow’s “Super Tuesday” presidential primary.”
These are a few of the reasons people are saying they no longer feel an attachment to the Democratic Party.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz as many of you know she’s the Chair of the Democratic National Committee.
So far this is what the DNC has done to Democrats:
– She tried to minimize debates between her chosen candidate and Senator Bernie Sanders.
– She tried to hide those debates on Saturday nights and other times of low viewership.
– She tried to deny the Sanders campaign access to its own voter files.
– She has publicly promoted the idea that Hillary Clinton’s platform is that of the Democratic Party.
Under Wasserman Schultz’s leadership, superdelegates have handicapped the race for Clinton so that Sanders must win by a 500 delegate margin if he is to win the nomination.
Under her leadership, the Democratic Party has refused to release the actual results of the Iowa caucuses, possibly denying Sanders the media boost of a victory.
And now, finally, with many of these steps appearing to backfire, Wasserman Schultz has doubled down, leaning all her weight onto Hillary’s side of the scale. The DNC has now removed restrictions created by presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008 on “donations” from federal lobbyists and political action committees.
Many say the DNC resembles a SUPER PAC.
And as I’m sure many of you already know, Progressives are angry because the delegate system is suppressing Millions of Democrat votes.
Thank you for taking the time to read my humble thoughts and I look forward to reading YOUR thoughts and opinions.
And Please NEVER forget our Mission as Progressives.
