Posted June 19, 2020 11:06:49After a disappointing 2016 presidential election, many progressives are hoping the Green Party can capitalize on their discontent and turn out for a new generation of candidates.
While Jill Stein and other progressive candidates have faced criticism for supporting Trump and failing to embrace the issues that make the country great, there is a chance that the Green ticket can win in 2020.
The Green Party’s Jill Stein won a historic third-place finish in the presidential election with 29.6 percent of the vote, defeating her Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
Stein won her home state of New York, where she is running for the first time in 2020, and she is leading in several battleground states.
With an increased focus on climate change and racial justice, many liberals believe that the party has a real shot at winning in 2020.
“The Green party has never been more important to our country and its future than it is right now,” Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate, Elizabeth Warren, said during the party’s annual convention.
“The Green platform will put a voice to our climate crisis, and help heal communities across our country from the effects of climate change, from broken families to the rising costs of health care and education,” she added.
The 2016 presidential campaign of former Secretary of State, Secretary of Homeland Security, and former Secretary, Joe Biden, was widely viewed as an aberration for a party that had been seen as a liberal bastion.
But Stein and others in the party are not ready to call it quits on a failed presidential bid.
The Green Party is now focusing on the 2020 election, focusing on issues that will help shape the future of the country.
According to a recent poll conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, about 58 percent of Americans support the Green platform, which will be voted on by the membership.
In the next election cycle, the Green party could potentially have a greater impact on the country than any other party in history.
According the polling, only one of the other two major parties (the Republican Party) has a stronger base of support.
“We are running a grassroots campaign,” Green party candidate, Mary O’Keefe, told Fox News.
“We are a movement.
We are a political party.”
She said she believes the Green agenda is based on a “sense of justice, fairness, justice for all, and the need to transform our society.”
According to the poll, a majority of Americans believe the country needs to “build a world of fairness and justice,” while a majority also believe “our society is built on a foundation of justice.”
This belief is why Stein and the Green campaign are so passionate, she said.
“Our job is to make sure that our country does not go backwards and it does not have to go backwards in the way that our history has been done,” O’Keefe said.
The platform will be vetted and approved by the Green presidential ticket and its leadership before it is released to the general public.
The party’s platform is not expected to be released until September, 2018.
Stein’s platform includes an initiative to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour and a call to end corporate welfare.
O’Keefe said the platform is focused on a number of issues, including addressing climate change.
“When it comes to raising wages and living standards, it’s about all of us standing up and making sure that people who have been working for a long time don’t get paid a lower wage,” O ‘Keefe said.
Okeefe said Stein is not a perfect candidate, but she believes she is a progressive candidate and she will be a better representative of the people of the United States in the future.
She added, “We need people like Jill Stein.
We need people who are going to fight for people’s right to have access to a safe environment, a healthy environment, education, healthcare.”
