In mid-July, Republican National Convention viewers watched anti-Trump Republicans shout for a roll call vote, Cruz refuse to specifically endorse Trump and volatile speeches laced with violence. The Democratic Convention—held in the city our nation was founded, Philadelphia, PA—expected a more unified vision: ready, willing and able to defeat the surprise Republican nominee in November. However, the expectation could not be further from reality. In a surprising turn of events in arguably the most unconventional election, the biggest threat to Hillary Clinton isn’t Donald Trump—it’s Bernie Sanders. Or more accurately, his unrelenting supporters. In the hours leading up to the start of the DNC, Democratic Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz came under fire as hundreds of emails leaked to the public —another email scandal in the campaign. The emails indicated that the Democratic leadership had attempted to pinpoint flaws and weaknesses in Bernie Sanders’ campaign—a clear bias towards Hillary Clinton from leaders who are meant to remain unbiased. Schultz resigned before the DNC began, revealing the first crack in the party that was supposed to be united. Bernie Sanders, who recognized defeat when Clinton accrued the necessary number of delegates, had been continuing speeches and planned to attend the DNC. However, there was a general agreement and acknowledgement that Hillary Clinton would be the Democratic nominee for president.
