It’s been a polarized election, with opposition to both front-runners at levels never seen before in recent history.
On the Left we have the “Bernie or Bust” crowd – those who won’t vote for Hillary Clinton under any circumstances. These diehards make up between 1/4th and 1/3rd of Sanders supporters, depending on which poll you look at. The vast majority don’t plan on voting at all – though some say they will defect for Trump or a third party candidate.
But are these people serious, or just saying this out of frustration with the political system? I can’t help but wonder that about the Bernie diehards, and their equivalent on the Right side of the aisle; the “Never Trump” crowd. As it turns out, the Republican Party is becoming more united behind Trump as time goes on.
In the latest NBC-Wall Street Journal poll Donald Trump Republican support for nominee Donald Trump jumped from 72% to 86% in one month.
#NeverTrumpers hurt the most.
Clinton lost eight points to Donald Trump in one month in the poll – from 50-39 to 46-43.
That’s a complete collapse folks.

Now – let’s just hope that the Bernie or Bust crowd is a bit more serious in their resentment for their Party’s front-runner.
