With Hillary Clinton Winning New York, Will Sanders Still Support Her If She Gets The Nomination?

Hillary Clinton seemed to be the underdog going into the New York Primary Tuesday as Bernie Sanders kept racking up wins and gaining momentum. Unfortunately for supporters of Sanders, Clinton took New York anyway.

As Clinton made her victory speech, she reminded everyone that this was no ordinary win. The Democratic presidential frontrunner said:

“You know; in this campaign we’ve won in every region of the country. From the north to the south to the east to the west, but this one’s personal.”

This statement could be in regards to a number of things. It seems that Sanders accused Clinton of campaign finance violations just one day before the vote. The debate last week was also very heated at times with many accusations made.

Regardless of the back and forth, there’s one question that could change the landscape of the presidential race: Will Bernie Sanders support Hillary Clinton if she is the Democratic nominee?

It’s no secret that the supporters of both candidates are very passionate. Unfortunately, it is a passion that could do more harm than good to the Democratic Party. In a recent article I pointed this out, and it didn’t take long for my point to be proven.

No matter what side you’re on, somebody has to win. Will we all be separated or will we come together to make the Democratic Party stronger? If it helps, Sanders has already said that he would support Hillary if she won the nomination.

Just a few weeks ago on “CBS This Morning,” anchor Charlie Rose asked Sanders:

“Come November 2016, if Hillary Clinton is the nominee you will be supporting her?”

Sanders replied:

“Sure, I will. Look, as I said a million times, I think the idea of a Donald Trump or a Ted Cruz presidency would be an unmitigated disaster for this country. I will do everything in my power and work as hard as I can to make sure that that does not happen. And if Secretary Clinton is the nominee, I will certainly support her.”

Well said Bernie. Hopefully your supporters will follow suit and realize what is truly at stake. That goes for Clinton supporters as well.

Also, if it makes anyone feel better, everyone reading this received just as many delegates as Ted Cruz — 0.
