Trump: Clinton got rich by making you poor. Clinton: Trump got rich by making your poor. Vote for someone else. Power to the People.— Dr. Jill Stein (@DrJillStein) June 22, 2016
What we fear from Trump we've gotten from Clinton. Trump talks hate for Muslims, but Clinton's wars killed 1M+ Muslims. Both unfit to serve.— Dr. Jill Stein (@DrJillStein) July 28, 2016
The Green Party is well aware that most people haven't bought their argument that a Trump regime will be no worst than what we have now or more of the same under Hillary Clinton. To be sure, undocumented workers, Muslims and most Afro-Americans remain unconvinced. So, the Green Party has another argument for why you should vote for Stein as "the greater good." They say Trump has no chance of winning so there's no need to vote for the lesser evil. You can feel good about your vote because the Trump campaign is already "toast." Mission Accomplished!
That is very dangerous deception. History has shown that polls can be very wrong about these things. The polls were consistently wrong in predicting Trump's victories in so many primaries, just as they were woefully wrong about the Brexit vote in Britain. And now the latest polls show Clinton's lead shrinking with the margin between the two possible winners dropping below the number going toward Jill Stein. While she has absolutely no chance of being our next president, if she can get 5% of the vote, the Green Party can get up to $20 million in federal funding. Than means if that target is reached, each Stein vote will net ~$3.34. However, if those represent progressive votes that otherwise would go to Clinton, and they do, and the polls continue to narrow as they are doing, the price for the world could well be a Donald Trump presidency. Investor's Business Daily reported on Friday:
Liberaterian candidate Gary Johnson is a former Republican governor that has "cast himself as an alternative to Mr. Trump" If the New York Times is right and "he is drawing support about equally from voters who would otherwise lean toward Mr. Trump or Mrs. Clinton," his campaign will have no net effect on the outcome. His poll numbers do make him three times as likely as Jill Stein to win the election, but his chances are zero nevertheless.
Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Are Tied In Latest IBD/TIPP Poll
By John Merline
2 September 2016
In a sharp turnaround in an already volatile election season, support for Hillary Clinton tumbled as Donald Trump made gains over the past month, leaving the race a virtual tie.
Clinton and Trump are tied at 39% each in a four-way matchup that includes Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, who gets 12% support, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein, who gets 3%. More...
Both Stein and Johnson will effect the outcome of the election only by drawing voters away from the main event. While the Johnson effect can be expected to be neutral, almost no one who will vote for Jill Stein would otherwise vote for Trump. Her candidacy only hurts Clinton and as a result, helps Trump. It is going to matter to quite a lot of people which one is our next president. No one should fall for Green Party talk that Hillary Clinton's got it in the bag. Poll numbers are tightening and October is anything can happen month. Happy Halloween. Trump masks and klan costumes are trending.
