I'm not so sure independents fall into the Bernie supporters camp because those supporters must be registered Democrat to vote in primaries. So, yes, Independents like to straddle the middle because they generally believe in certain things that each party embraces, so they don't fall on one side or the other.

Numerous, and I do mean NUMEROUS independents registered as democrats in order to vote for Bernie - to make this vote count. Bernie was an independent and only registered as a democrat in order to run. It was a strategy that came about because ineffective third party candidates have so frequently been responsible for splitting the democratic ticket. So, Bernie ran. And he was clearly a serious threat to the DNC establishment so they felt compelled to ...

I won't go into what the DNC did. They can stick their party up their ass.
Everything DLJ said was spot on. Shy

I find it hard to believe THAT many independent and/or unaffiliated voters had the foresight to register Dem in anticipation of a Bernie Sanders movement so they could vote in primaries. It's true voters had time to change affiliation, but it just seems like an awful lot to ask and execute, especially from Millenials.

Being Canadian, I don't have a say in the election. But what I do know is that splitting the vote with protest votes really doesn't look like it would help much. Especially when Johnson and Stein are the foremost independent candidates.

The side that loses the most to 3rd party will most likely lose the election.

That being said, I invite all Bernie supporters to vote for Jill Stein.

Thank you.

In my state (Kansas) registration was accepted before, during and even after the caucus - right up until the national conventions. Record numbers of people turned out for the caucuses and registered right at the door. Numbers were unprecedented - this traditionally red state was suddenly a blue state!

Nope. The hats have been dropped.

Many who registered democrat, specifically to vote for Sander's proposals, will now use their vote for someone not a democrat. That will mean that my state will go back to having more votes for red guys than the blue guys. And those green people ... they don't really count at all and this election process proved it.
