Jill Stein better watch out! Hillary Clinton’s supporters are seeing red over the Green Party’s leader. Jill’s presidential campaign cost Hillary some much-needed states in the Nov. 8 election and supporters are livid that Jill helped pave the way for President Donald Trump.
Donald Trump, 70, won 290 Electoral College votes to win the 2016 Election, according to CNN. Hillary, 68, only managed to scrounge up 232. However, had the voters who backed Jill, 66, and the Libertarian Party’s candidate, Gary Johnson, 63, decided to hold their noses and stand with Hillary in four key states, the Democratic candidate would have won.
In Wisconsin, Hillary lost the state by 1% of the vote, according to Politicus USA. Had Jill’s supporters backed the Democratic candidate, Hillary would have won the state. Similarly, Hillary lost Florida by 119,770 votes, Pennsylvania by 68,236 votes and Michigan by 11,837 votes. If voters who backed Jill and Gary decided to dump Trump, Hillary would have taken 75 Electoral College votes away from Donald – and the election.
This sent many of Hillary’s supporters (and anti-Trumpers) into a fury. “Good job, idiots,” one voter tweeted when they realized that Jill contributed to Hillary’s loss of Michigan and Wisconsin. Some couldn’t believe that people would vote for Jill or Gary, knowing that they “had no chance and could have [given] them votes to Hillary.” Others just summed up their frustrations by saying “f*ck Jill Stein.”
Jill Stein spoiled it for Clinton in Michigan and Wisconsin, winning more votes than Clinton lost by. Good job idiots.

I hope Gary Johnson and Jill Stein supporters are proud. Steins votes alone would have given Clinton Wisconsin. pic.twitter.com/12POkHYblS

Even before the election took place on Nov. 8, people trashed Jill and Gary for pulling a Ralph Nader, 82, in this race. John Oliver, 39, took a moment on Last Week Tonight to mock the Green Party and Libertarian policies, saying their “key proposals crumble under the slightest amount of scrutiny.” It seems that John couldn’t understand why anyone would give their vote to these candidates when it basically was a race between Donald and Hillary.
Well, the votes have been cast and whether Hillary’s supporters like it or not, Donald Trump will be the next President of the United States. Or will he? “How To Impeach A President” became a top Google search following Trump’s victory, as many dissatisfied voters were wondering if they could somehow change their minds.
Are you angry over Jill Stein, HollywoodLifers? Do you blame these third party candidates for costing Hillary the election?
