What will Bernie's voters do if, in the likely event, Hillary Clinton wins the democratic nomination?

1. Vote for Hillary
2. Vote for Trump (assuming he wins)
3. Abstain

I was asked this question at work by a couple colleagues and I came up with your answer as well. Just wanted to get an idea of what others thought. I've heard things like "Bernie or bust," and "Hillary Clinton is the lesser of two evils." But considering the millennial tide and their seeming interest in their civic duties, I said that they'd probably go out and vote regardless, and it would be for Hillary. Though I do think a good number of them may abstain as well. What I believe to be certain is that they would not vote for Trump. On the other hand, if Bernie were to win, I would then not be surprised to see some of Clinton's voters turn to Trump.

About 20 % of Bernie's voters will vote for Trump because they hate Hillary. I have seen many Bernie supporters say this in the youtube videos I have watched.

This is funny because it's actually the exact opposite. Many Sanders supporters would turn to Trump over Clinton, but almost all Clinton supporters would turn to Sanders over Trump. Me, I'll probably vote 3rd Party.

4. Vote for Jill Stein

Thats what I am doing (If he loses), and I encourage all of my fellow Bernie supporter to do the same if he loses.

A lot of people think that because Clintion is a Democrat, Sander supporters would automatically support her if she were to be elected.

But, if you look at the big picture, many Sanders supporters identify as a Socialist, and Clintion stands for everything a Socialsist *isn't for* if that makes sense.

I am happy to clarify if need be.
