Dems see Green Party as spoilers

Washington Post:
As Green Party’s Stein woos Sanders backers, some see flashbacks to 2000

Looking back at Ralph Nader’s third-party run and Al Gore’s close loss to George W. Bush, Democrats worry that Jill Stein could cost Hillary Clinton the election this time around.
The Libertarians are likely to draw more GOP voters than the Green Party does from Democrats, but the media is more worried about Hillary.  Some polls in Utah show the Libertarian nominee, Johnson, within three points of the lead.  That is rare.  He is already polling much higher than normal for a third party candidate.

But it is a mistake to blame this on the third party candidates.  The blame goes to the Republicans and Democrats who have nominated two of the worst candidates in history.
