Johnson already wooing Bernie supporters and wooing Bernie himself. WARNING!

I would not be surprised if Bernie didn't join the Green Party and half of supporters vote for the Libertarians.

Hillary has more fighting against her once agains. We are going to have to work very hard for her.

3. The Greens already have Jill Stein, and her offer to share the stage is just grandstanding.

Her ego is way too big to allow that to ever happen, plus I doubt Sanders would accept the VP slot.

Johnson got 1% in 2012 and looks to be on pace for that in 2016. He's also a conservative - if Sanders supporters won't vote for Hillary because she's too far right, they should flat-out ignore Johnson. But then, some of them were Paul fans, so who knows.

I don't see either as much of a threat.

6. True, but I don't think that translates to votes for Johnson. I think they'll just stay home.

Many of them didn't even bother to vote for Sanders. Otherwise, the big crowds and supposed heightened enthusiasm would have translated to more votes.

8. I would not be surprised that Bernie is unconcerned with the country's well being.

But it would destroy him and the Green party and (if Trump wins) the country.
