Would you vote for Bernie? [View all]

I posted this in response to another thread with respect to Bernie:

He was my mayor once and I supported him. But I will never again after his antics in 2016. I KNOW that I am not alone, and I’m a progressive and a life-long Dem. What does that say about Bernie’s chances with anti-Trump Republicans or independents?

Maybe I’d hold my nose and vote for him to get rid of Trump, but a Sanders Presidency would be another 4-yr disaster and we’d lose any chance at taking the Senate back. Sanders needs to return to Vermont and continue serving in the Senate. If he actually cared about the Country he’d without question serve as a Democrat rather than as an Independent. I’d like to see someone ask now if he would do that. I’d like to see him squirm to avoid answering the question.

Forget any unenforceable pledge on DU or elsewhere you may have made to vote for the eventual nominee, I truly wonder what people here would do if Bernie becomes the nominee.

If your response is “none of the above,” what would you do?
