At Harvard, supporting Hillary “nearly tantamount” to backing Trump

It’s not just conservatives who feel alienated on campus. Hillary supporters are learning what it’s like to feel ostracized, particularly on Harvard University campus, as they share their experiences with The Guardian. 

Bernie Sanders commands support from the youth vote nationally, and in the Massachusetts primary. Although Hillary barely won with 50.1 percent of the overall vote compared to Sanders’ 48.7 percent, she lost young voters. According to the CNN exit polls, Sanders won 54 percent of those 18-44, including 71 percent of those 18-24 and 58 percent of those 25-29.

To some, supporting Hillary is as bad as supporting Trump. “At Harvard, admitting that #ImWithHer is nearly tantamount to boasting ‘Make America Great Again,'” shared Sam Koppleman, a 20-year old government student who supports Hillary.

Koppleman may have found something in common then with Donald Trump supporters who have kept support for their candidate hidden. Until last month, he made a “conscious decision” not to write about supporting Hillary. Koppleman also stopped writing about politics in the student newspaper, fearing it would “cast me as an outsider, cast me as someone who’s more conservative.”

How does Koppleman think students who support more conservative candidates than Hillary Clinton feel? He called it an “unhappy medium” supporting Hillary, since it alienates both the College Republicans and Sanders supporters.
