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:
