Stein also posted a video pushing her message. “The political system is broken. The two Wall Street parties are bought and paid for. Over 60 percent of us now say the bipartisan establishment’s failed us, and we need a party that serves the people,” she said in the clip.

“Our democracy is on life support,” the candidate said in another post on X. “Belief in our political system is at historic lows and the number who feel neither establishment party represents them is at a record high. “We need real choices on the ballot, because without freedom of choice in elections, there is no democracy.”

While it isn’t likely that Stein will get much traction in the 2024 race for the White House — Green Partiers rarely do — if she sticks it out to the bitter end, she will take votes away from Biden. Supporters of Democrat Hillary Clinton remain bitter about Stein’s impact on the 2016 race. “Had voters in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin cast their ballots for Clinton rather than the Green Party’s Stein, Clinton would be president” instead of Donald Trump, Politico noted in 2020. Stein is the third candidate to enter the race who is likely to take votes from Biden, along with independents Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Cornel West. Kennedy, a maverick from a family of Democratic politicians, entered the race back in April, while West, a progressive scholar and activist, announced he was running in June. Meanwhile, Biden’s poll numbers continue to plummet across the board in nearly every category where Democrats are usually strong. The addition of Stein to the race is sure to give the president’s campaign severe heartburn.
