Here Are 5 Reasons Bernie Sanders Says You Should Support Hillary Clinton

The primary races for the 2016 US presidential election are over, but both Republicans and Democrats continue to struggle to unite their parties and coalesce around their official candidates.

On the right, Republicans are having a hard time supporting Donald Trump for a multitude of reasons. Lately, the main reason has been Trump's dispute with the parents of a dead Muslim American soldier.

On the left, Democrats are struggling to convince Bernie Sanders supporters that Hillary Clinton is the best choice for them.

In protest to Hillary's nomination, Sanders supporters stormed out of the Democratic National Convention, and other supporters staged a fart-in at the DNC. I didn't know that was a thing until they did it, but it just goes to show how difficult it is to bring Sanders supporters into the Democratic fold.

In his latest effort to persuade his followers to support Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders wrote an op-ed in the Los Angeles Times telling them why he supports her and why they, in supporting him, should support her too.

Unfortunately for Donald Trump, the essay is just as much about being for Hillary as it is about being against Trump.

But regardless of who Bernie is asking you to support, he made some great points about the notable differences between Trump and Hillary, so here are five of Bernie Sanders' best reasons to support Hillary; you can check out the full essay from the Vermont senator over at the Los Angeles Times.

1. Hillary will work to fix the cost and debt problems of higher education.

2. Hillary accepts the science of climate change.

3. Hillary will work to get more people access to healthcare and lower its costs.

4. Hillary will be able to appoint liberal justices to the Supreme Court to help enact a progressive agenda.

5. Hillary Clinton's policies will help working families.

Unfortunately, Bernie doesn't get into the nitty gritty explanations of how exactly Hillary will do all of this, but he seems to wholeheartedly believe this is all true.

Check out the full piece over the Los Angeles Times where Bernie gives more reasons to support Hillary and also breaks down Donald Trump's policies in more detail.
