Poll: For Sanders Supporters ONLY: What should Bernie do now? [View all]

Last edited Wed Jun 8, 2016, 07:22 PM - Edit history (1)

I have seen a lot of mixed opinions from my comrades here today, so I figured I would take a poll to see where everyone stands.

Please, no Hillary supporters voting in this. You can comment but don't vote.

This poll just deals with his public stance. It doesn't get into the technicalities of suspending versus ending the campaign, releasing delegates, etc.

If there is another option you think I should add let me know.
