Loyal Sanders voters warn of ‘mass exodus’ from Democrat Party if Biden wins 2020 nom

(USA Features) Voters who have loyally supported socialist Democratic presidential contender Sen. Bernie Sanders increasingly say they will leave the Democratic Party if former Vice President Joe Biden wins the 2020 presidential nomination.

If that pans out, the New York Post reported, it could have a very positive effect on President Donald Trump’s reelection chances in November.



“We will never – NEVER boost or support Joe Biden or defend his abysmal record and terrible policy positions,” Henry Williams, executive director of The Gravel Institute, told The Post.

“We will tell people, as we always have, to vote their conscience and to make decisions based on the interests of all the world’s oppressed people … I do expect a massive exodus from the Democratic Party,” he continued.

David Oks and Henry Magowan, along with Williams, are the driving forces behind the brief presidential campaign of Mike Gravel, an 89-year-old former Alaska senator who left the race in August.

They all then became enthusiastic “Bernie Bros.”

“I don’t know if I could vote for Biden,” said a high-profile local Democratic Socialist, the Post reported. “Biden is just an old white guy who inspires nobody. I sincerely think he will lose the electoral and popular vote and I know I won’t be voting for him in New York.”




The grumbling from Sanders supporters isn’t simply an idle threat, the paper reported. Some 12 percent of voters who supported Sanders’ failed 2016 presidential bid wound up supporting Trump on Election Day, according to an analysis by Cooperative Congressional Election Study.

That added an additional 216,000 voters in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, according to exit polls. Trump’s combined margin of victory in those states was 77,744.

Other Sanders supporters most assuredly sat out the 2016 election while some also probably voted for a third-party candidate in protest, political analysts noted, according to the Post.

  1. And do what? It is unlikely that they would vote for Trump. This is the Hard Left we’re talking about. Melt away? No, these folks are Believers and Believers don’t melt away. Start some sort of revolution? Unlikely, as most are talkers, not doers. Start a third party? That just bleeds votes from Sanders. If, by some back room deal, the DNC nominates Clinton, they might be somewhat appeased but that would drive away the centrist members of the DNC, possibly to Trump. No, they should just crawl back to wherever they hide.

  2. The DNC doesn’t care. They will get more of the black vote with Biden and that number will replace the Bernie Bros. by a long shot.

  3. Just Stop.. The Hildebeast is the Democratic Party Candidate.. it only a question of how it will be announced.. when it will be announced.. and how much the Communist Fraud Millionaire Bernie Sanders can get in cash and maybe even a 5th House or a Yacht to drop out and endorse..
