Your Voice 2016
Depending on whom you ask, Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein is either the last best hope for progressives or a thorn in Hillary Clinton’s side who could be giving Donald Trump an election day boost.
Stein, a physician by trade who is running a climate- and poverty-focused campaign that has seen its share of controversies, is currently polling at 2.7% nationally. That said, she has a particularly strong showing with younger voters. According to recent poll from The New York Times and CBS News, 10% of voters between the ages of 18 to 29 plan to vote for Stein come November.
Where does she stand on the big issues of 2016? Here’s a pocket guide to get you started:
Jorge Ramos and Alicia Menendez will moderate a one-hour forum with Stein and her running mate Amaju Baraka Monday on FUSION. The FUSION Green Party forum will stream live across FUSION’s Facebook page and on YouTube at 2 p.m. ET. It will air in primetime Monday, September 19 at 9 p.m. ET on FUSION.
