Sanders Voters for Trump?

There are a few but not too many.

I have seen many Trump supporters writing in the comments on articles on the Net. Except in the piece linked above, I have not yet seen one liberal, progressive or leftwing person who commenting saying that they are voting for Trump. Hell, I haven’t even seen a moderate or centrist who says they are voting for Trump.

All, and I do mean all, of the Trump voters I have seen so far on the Net have been rightwingers – even worse, real wingnuts. This is the Fox News crowd, the base of the Republican Party. They’re all Obama haters and not because he’s too conservative. These are the Birthers. The kooks. The crazies. As I said, the base. As far as I can tell, that’s all who’s voting for him.

Apparently there are some left, liberal, progressive or even moderate people voting for Trump. It’s just that I never see any of them. I assume that that means that they are few in number.

If it’s a choice between a rightwing neoliberal, neoconservative and a fascist maniac , I don’t have much choice but to pick the former. I have been voting for the lesser of two evils for as long as I can remember. I usually hate the Democrats that I end up voting for, but vote for them I do anyway.

  1. I would vote into the Fascist maniac over the Neocon everytime, too bad Trump is just another shabbo goy under different package.

  2. Rus

    I think the very purpose of such politic games that them politicians make up such bad alternatives in such a way that you do not vote for a right party or for a right person, but you “end up” voting for what they want, and a worse thing is that people are unaware of this ruse.

  3. There’s the lesser of two evils and then there’s deal breakers. Every self respecting liberal has to decide for themselves where to draw the line. I feel like you would never draw the line anywhere, Robert. You’re on a trajectory to vote for a Democrat more right wing and egregious than the one before, every time. Bill Clinton was more right wing than Carter. Obama is more right wing than Bill Clinton. Hillary is more right wing than Obama, and so on.
