      Would states allow that?  Would they count the votes together, or would it draw votes away?  

      I think it would be even more fun to have Bernie win!

      Can you imagine them having a socialist win?

        too many BS third parties already, the third party votes are added to the major party votes.

        For example, in 2010 Andrew Cuomo got votes on the Democratic, Independence and Working Families lines, and they were all added together for his overall vote total.

        A public option for health insurance is a national priority.
