Thousands cheer on Bernie Sanders

These are some excerpts from a news piece from Salt Lake City (full piece at the link):

Andy Triplett, a retired steelworker, said he is voting for Sanders because of his commitment to keeping manufacturing jobs in the U.S.
Triplett acknowledged criticism of Sanders' platform as unrealistic and likely to be shot down by Congress. But he said that just means citizens have to work even harder to elect senators and representatives who reflect their values.

“Voting’s not where it ends, it’s where it starts,” Triplett said.

Here is an interesting comment:

"Here's what I know," said Nathan Nelson, a Provo dad. "I will not vote for Trump."

Nelson, who grew up in a conservative family, doesn't support abortion and is actively LDS. But he said he was taught “to love each other and take care of each other,” and he said Sanders’s policies align with those values better than any of the other candidates.
