Senator Bernie Sanders just said he would vote for Hillary Clinton in November in order to prevent Donald Trump from getting elected.
Speaking with MSNBC on Friday, he stated,
Yes. I suppose the issue right here is I’m gonna do everything I can to defeat Donald Trump. I suppose Trump, in so many ways, will be a disaster for this country if he were to be elected president.
We do not require a chairwoman whose cornerstone of his campaign is bigotry, is insulting Mexicans, and Latinos, and Muslims and women. Who does not believes in the reality of climate change when virtually every scientist who has analyzed this issue understands we have a global crisis.
This is not somebody who should become president.

These remarks do not mean Sanders are formally dropped out of the race. He is still operating for president.
But that doesn’t mean his statements don’t have the potential to rage some of his supporters.
There is a significant portion of Sanders advocates who say they will never vote for Hillary.
A recent poll from Bloomberg uncovered about half of the Vermont senator’s advocates said they will not vote for the former secretary of state.
But around 55 percent did say they would vote for her, while 22 percentage said they’d vote for Trump and 18 percentage said they’d vote for Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party.
Needless to say, this is a very factionalized and divisive election.
