The left-wing Vermont Senator fought an aggressive campaign against Clinton during the Democratic Primaries, but now he is showing his total support to Mrs. Clinton by nominating her by acclamation at the Democratic National Convention. But Sanders’ supporters don’t divide his opinion, planning to abstain, back a third-party candidate, or even vote for Donald Trump as a supposedly “less harmful” option.
Sanders tries to convince people saying: “On virtually every major issue facing this country and the needs of working families, Clinton’s positions are far superior to Trump’s. Our campaigns worked together to produce the most progressive platform in the history of American politics. Trump’s campaign wrote one of the most reactionary documents. [Clinton’s] Supreme Court appointees would protect a woman’s right to choose, workers’ rights, the rights of the LGBT community, the needs of minorities and immigrants and the government’s ability to protect the environment. Trump, on the other hand, has made it clear that his Supreme Court appointees would preserve the court’s right-wing majority.”
