Will a split democratic party elect Trump by default?
Many of Bernie Sanders supporters have said they would not vote for Clinton no matter what. So if Sanders runs as an independent he most likely will not win but he may pull enough votes away from Clinton to swing it to Trump. In a three way race Clinton and Trump may do so much damage to each other that maybe Sanders could win?
Yes, because there are Republicans who may stay home over voting for Trump but no one who would cross over.
However, some nationalist Democrats like those who hate the TPP treaty would vote for Trump if Hillary ran. If Sanders ran along with Hillary, Trump would get fewer votes, but Sanders would suck even more support from Hillary - so he'd be the biggest percentage of the vote and win.
Yes, that what I was thinking. The die-hard Dems that hate Hillary will vote Sanders because they can't vote Trump but they (some not all) see voting as not a right but the obligation of every citizen.
Sanders could become Ross Perot 2.0. And I thought of him because his 3rd party candidacy split Republicans in 1990s, allowing Bill Clinton to win.
