WASHINGTON—Expressing concern that the Green Party candidate might serve as a spoiler in next year’s presidential election, critics warned Friday that Jill Stein’s entry into the race could harm Cornel West’s chances of getting elected to the White House in 2024. “Jill Stein and her supporters need to think very carefully about what they’re doing and how it could prevent the possibility of a President Cornel West,” said political analyst Chris Sutherland, who cautioned that putting Jill Stein on the ballot could sway the outcome in 2024 by siphoning off “literally hundreds of votes” that would have otherwise propelled independent candidate Cornel West to the White House. “When you’re polling at 3% like Dr. West, every single vote counts. But the Green Party doesn’t seem to understand that. The historical parallels are terrifying. This could be just like in 2016 when Stein decisively tilted the election away from Gary Johnson.” Sutherland went on to stress that if this possibility didn’t frighten Stein into dropping out, she should consider the very real scenario in which her candidacy creates a President RFK Jr.
