A Significant Number of Bernie Sanders Supporters Still Won’t Back Hillary

Bernie and Hillary

Even though Bernie Sanders has endorsed Hillary, many of his supporters are still refusing to support her. This could spell big trouble for Hillary in November.

The Washington Examiner reports:

More Sanders voters say they will choose ‘other,’ or not vote, than back Clinton

Supporters of rebel Democrat Sen. Bernie Sanders are not following his lead in backing Hillary Rodham Clinton, detouring away from the establishment Democrat to other candidates including Donald Trump.

A new Economist/YouGov poll showed that the email scandal, and FBI Director James Comey’s charge that Clinton’s behavior was “extremely careless,” has led Sanders backers to abandon the former secretary of State.

Since Comey’s House testimony, support for Clinton has dropped 12 points, to 41 percent. For the first time, Sanders supporters now prefer either someone else or they won’t vote.

It is the latest evidence that Clinton suffers from a trust and honesty deficit.

And some 14 percent support Trump, a number that has increased in the last month as the Sanders campaign died.

Trump has wisely reached out to these voters.

Hopefully, some of them will vote for him.
