Bernie Sanders supporters may not back Hillary
More Sanders voters say they will choose 'other,' or not vote, than back Clinton: Supporters of rebel Democrat Sen. Bernie Sanders are not following his lead in backing Hillary Rodham Clinton, detouring away from the establishment Democrat to other candidates including Donald Trump. A new Economist/YouGov poll showed that the email scandal, and FBI Director James Comey's charge that Clinton's behavior was extremely careless, has led Sanders backers to abandon the former secretary of State. Since Comey's House testimony, support for Clinton has dropped 12 points, to 41 percent. For the first time, Sanders supporters now prefer either someone else or they won't vote.
