With the US presidential election less than two months away, some are calling it a vote for the lesser of two evils. Many young progressive American voters within the Democratic Party are unhappy with their nominee, Hillary Clinton, and are instead turning to third parties.

But will a vote for a third-party candidate help Republican nominee Donald Trump get elected?

In this week's Headliner, Mehdi Hasan asks Green Party candidate Jill Stein about her party's platform and if she thinks a vote for Green is a wasted vote.

Stein, who also ran as the Green Party presidential candidate in 2012, says a voter should "absolutely not" vote for Clinton to stop Trump in a swing state.

"Donald Trump is not different enough from Hillary Clinton," Stein says.

The Green Party candidate also adds that she would "rather go down fighting" than "commit suicide by voting for either political party".
