PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Even with Monday's endorsement of the likely Democratic nominee, Bernie Sanders supporters on the ground in Philadelphia say they're not ready to support Hillary Clinton.

"We had the election stolen from us. There's proof of that now. They called us crazy, and honesty that's fascism," said Jim Jeffers.

One woman carrying a 'Bernie of bust' sign at a rally Tuesday told News 3 she will "never, ever" support Clinton. Instead, she will likely cast her vote for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

Stein spoke to the crowd on Tuesday, focusing her speech on issues like unemployment, student debt and the environment. 'Bernie or bust' activists seemed to agree with the message.

There was Hillary supporters among the crowd. Sajid Khan said 'Bernie or bust' supporters were wasting time.  "He's out of it already, there's nothing anybody can do," said Khan. He told News 3 he still believes protesters will cast their vote for Clinton.
