For months, Bernie Sanders has made it known he's "with her."

"I have come here to make it as clear as possible as to why I am endorsing Hillary Clinton and why she must become our next president," Sanders said at a rally in July.

But some of his supporters still don't seem convinced.

According to Google, a lot of people are suddenly very interested in the terms "write in." And Sanders appears to be a top name associated with that search.

Searches for write-in candidates and rules skyrocketed after the second debate.

Problem is, most states don't allow write-in candidates who aren't already registered, which Sanders hasn't done.

And write-ins aren't even allowed in nine states.

Still, filing isn't required in eight states — states where Sanders could conceivably win a few electoral votes.

But a few of those are considered Democratic strongholds where Clinton is pretty far ahead.
