The FBI has just re-opened its investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails. Director Comey would not reopen the case now unless he believed new evidence was compelling and significant. Hillary must step down and let Bernie run.

Can candidates be changed?

Yes. When you vote for President, you're actually voting for electors to head to a convention to then vote for President. Those electors are pledged to a candidate, however if that candidate drops out they can vote for someone else. These electors are usually very faithful to the party they represent. So if the Democratic Party announces they are running Bernie Sanders, even though the ballots say Hillary Clinton, the electors can choose him for President.

Hillary Clinton is dropping in polls vs Donald Trump. Some latest polls have the candidates tied, while the latest LA Times poll shows Donald Trump in the lead. 

If it weren’t for Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton would be the least liked Presidential candidate in the last 10 election cycles, and her favorability rate continues to fall.

On the other hand, Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in the nation

"Most voters who would back Mr. Trump or Mrs. Clinton say their vote is meant less to support their candidate than to oppose the other one. There is no precedent for this in recent decades.". The people will not be voting for Hillary Clinton, they’ll be voting against Trump. Would it not be better to have a candidate that energize people to get out and vote?

Polls show without exception that Sanders beats Trump more than Hillary.
"Bernie Sanders polls extraordinarily well among independent voters and new voters. In fact, he’s the only candidate this year who polls consistently stronger among independents than Donald Trump", which is particularly important as Independents are now the largest political affiliation group.

Hillary Clinton and her campaign has shown a shocking lack of respect to Bernie Sanders and his supporters, and because of that nearly half of Sanders supporters won’t support Hillary Clinton. However, the democratic candidate will need these people to vote for them in order to win the election.

Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders inspires people, he raised over $200 million from people with an average contribution of $27 and brought out hundreds of thousands of people out to see him speak. He brings an energy and invigoration to the Democratic Party that Hillary Clinton simply cannot. This is the sign of a strong candidate.

The recent DNC email leaks and Podesta Email leaks from Wikileaks have shown that the DNC actively tried to work against the Sanders campaign. It is clear the DNC Chair and DNC staff did not remain neutral throughout the primary process as they should according to Party Rules, which leads to the conclusion that Bernie Sanders more than likely would have earned more delegates to the convention. The process has been rigged against Bernie Sanders, in favor of Hillary Clinton. For the sake of the party, it is simply not acceptable to let this type of action be rewarded.

While the case has been re-opened, the previous conclusion of the FBI investigation into Hillary's emails showed that Hillary Clinton was "extremely careless in [her] handling of very sensitive, highly classified information". These findings will be forever detrimental to any claim of national security experience by Hillary Clinton. It in fact shows that she has poor judgement, which would be a bad quality for the President of the United States.

It has also been revealed that Hillary has a private and public position on many policies areas. She is publicly against the TPP and marriage equality, but recent email leaks has shown she is most likely going to support the TPP if she was President and personally doesn't believe in marriage equality.

We therefore request: #DropOutHillary and #SwitchToBernie
