Twenty Percent of Sanders Supporters Will Vote for Trump

Twenty percent of Sanders supporters claim they will vote for Donald Trump if their candidate doesn’t win the Democratic nomination. Why, for God’s sake? They back the candidate who is most against wealth and privilege, and because their candidate appears unlikely to win the nomination, they will vote for the epitome of wealth and privilege? That makes no sense whatsoever!

Of course, this country has a long history of people suddenly switching from the extreme left to the extreme left and vice versa. Christian religious fanatics, when they become disillusioned with their beliefs, often become radically anti-Christian campaigners. Even the Republican and Democratic parties have switched ideologies. The Democratic Party was once formed of conservatives, and the Republican Party was founded as a liberal alternative. Now the parties have switched roles.

Still, it is hard for me to believe that people who proclaim themselves to be opposed to the privilege of wealth would vote for one of those they claim to despise.
