Who do you think Bernie would vote for?

Do you think if he lost the primaries he would say, "I'm not voting for Hillary because I stand by my "principles"

Fuck NO. The man would stand with the Democrats. He wouldn't go on this ego trip of taking his vote away on a platform because things aren't the way he demands them to be! No matter what we are all being granted the good fortune of learning from him and have him spread a new way of looking at things to the masses.

Don't you think that alone will cause whoever is president to behave differently?

Or would you rather have Trump because your principles are more ego than anything else? And in the meantime all your fighting is just hurting the Democratic cause. I understand that people's emotions are running very high but that is no excuse for bad behavior.

I will vote for whoever is the Democratic nominee. Just like I'm sure Bernie AND Hillary would.

1. Oh look, it's THIS thread again.

 

No sale. Reap the benefits of the near constant alienation and scorn that's been heaped on Bernie and his supporters.

3. At the beginning, Sanders said would support the nominee because he did not want Republicans

to win.

I think he is a man of his word.

23. If Bernie is the nominee you better bet we need the Hillary voters to get behind us also

We cannot win the presidency with only 1/2 of our Democrats. It doesn't matter what side.

24. This comment sat idle for hours on end

And now 3 of you respond within 15 mins of each other. Strange.

Edit: Whoops. You commented twice. My bad.

I'll vote for the most progressive candidate in November I can assure you of that.

...the PUMA's didn't have an impact; neither with the "Bernie or Bust" brigade.

And needless to say, what happens here will have no impact on voters in the real world.

19. Have you ever heard of dampened enthusiasm? It's not Duers you should be worried about

 

It's those people who don't pay attention, and don't much care about the "teams."

"Clinton? Meh. I think we need to shake things up so I'm going with Trump."

or

"Clinton" Meh....Trump. Don't like the guy. I'll just stay home."

Mine is my own.

Bernie and his family will be sheltered from the dirrect effects of another right leaning neoliberal.

Mine will not be.

I heard from Hillary and her supporters he isn't really a Democrat. So I guess you can't ever be to sure.

For political reasons he's obligated. We are not. No matter what the rationale, I will never vote against my principles again.

That is his concern. I intend to vote for the candidate who in my opinion will do the most for me.

Who will that be? Don't know, I'll have to wait and see what my options are.

My vote is not transferable based on endorsements. I vote for policies, not people.

29. Of course he wouldn't

He cares way too much for the rights of the disenfranchised, religious and racial minorities, the disabled, gays etc. to enable a white supremacist sympathizer.

I would hope everyone would follow his lead.
