Blog Post - #DemExit

If optics are half of politics, Bernie just made quite a political statement today... and his supporters are listening.

Sander's told Bloomberg Politics that he's leaving the Democratic party, and the timing of his announcement is likely no coincidence. Many of his followers are planning a mass exodus from the Democratic party today, and using the hashtag #DemExit to encourage others to follow suit.

Green Party candidate Jill Stein is seen as the benefactor of this shift. She's also been tweeting with the #DemExit hashtag.

"DNC wants your support for lying, undermining, and insulting you. They'll lock you out if you don't comply. #DemExit," Stein tweeted.

Meanwhile, those disaffected Bernie supporters were holding "de-register" events to encourage voters to leave the party that they feel betrayed them. Coming on the heels of Tuesday's massive walkout from the Convention by Bernie followers, it's becoming clear (to everyone other than the mainstream media) that unity may have escaped the Democrats this election season.

    Foolishness. A vote for Jill Stein = a vote for Trump. Don't be a fool, vote for Hillary!

    Here in Australia we have preferential voting, which is great for minor parties, because I can vote for any of the small guys first and then if they do not form government my vote goes to my choice of big party. I am keenly observing the situation in the States, and Bernie's campaign was huge inspiration. I became sad for a week once I realised he wasn't going to make it across the line. It was really upsetting for me.
    I am glad their campaign had a big influence on the Democratic platform. And since there are about 497 important points of difference between Democrats and Republicans, I would certainly now be a Hillary supporter if I lived in the US.

    Come on, folks Hillary is a lying two faced corrupt criminal who will say and do anything to get back to the White House. Grow up and quit being played like a pansy. Hillary will do more damage than Trump ever would.
