Bernie Sanders supporters could prove to be Hillary Clinton's undoing even if she manages to clinch the Democratic nomination.
The division between the two candidates of the Democratic Party has not been as stark and as wide as it has been over the last few weeks. While Clinton has prematurely started setting her sights on a general election match-up against Republican nominee Donald Trump, the reality within the Democratic camp will not exactly be music to her ears.
According to the New York Post, more than 73,000 Bernie Sanders supporters have signed an online campaign pledging not to vote for Hillary Clinton under any circumstances. The website, WontVoteHillary.com, has outgoing links to innumerable journalistic pieces as well as blog posts, which, in turn, draw attention to Clinton's bleak record as the former Secretary of State, as well as shed a light on the string of alleged bad decisions that Clinton took during her time as the junior senator from New York.
The pro-Bernie Sanders campaign explains the reasons for not voting for Hillary Clinton in the following way.
"Hillary Clinton may be the DNC darling, but she should not be crowned the presidential nominee without popular consent. We the people cannot allow Clinton to win if we want to see a progressive White House. Clinton"s policies are center-right, she carries too much baggage and she has too many enemies to win the general election."
