NY Times - Die-Hard Bernie Sanders Backers See F.B.I. as Answer to Their Prayers

I think a lot of Hillary supporters are wrong to believe that many Bernie supporters would support her over Trump. A lot of Bernie's support is not based on his positions or ideology, but on the fact that like Trump, he is seen as an outsider and anti-establishment.

“If the D.N.C. wants to go ahead and put out the candidate who can’t win and we lose in November, it’s not because I didn’t vote,” she said. “It’s because they were looking out for their interests and not for the better interests of the country.”

Not everyone at Mr. Sanders’s rallies is dreading a Trump victory, however.

Victor Vizcarra, 48, of Los Angeles, said he would much prefer Mr. Trump to Mrs. Clinton. Though he said he disagreed with some of Mr. Trump’s policies, Mr. Vizcarra said he had watched “The Apprentice” and expected that a Trump presidency would be more exciting than a “boring” Clinton administration.

“A dark side of me wants to see what happens if Trump is in,” said Mr. Vizcarra, who works in information technology. “There is going to be some kind of change, and even if it’s like a Nazi-type change. People are so drama-filled. They want to see stuff like that happen. It’s like reality TV. You don’t want to just see everybody be happy with each other. You want to see someone fighting somebody.”

2. Are there people who believe that Sanders is more like Trump than like Clinton?

Boy, I've never seen him that way. To me, he seems to be much closer to Clinton than to Trump. I think Sanders feels that way, too. He seems very opposed to Trump. But, we'll see what he says when this is over.

3. Trump is a racist and a bigot. He will lower taxes on the wealthy.

He will stop any work at reducing the effects of Global Warming.
He supports, in one instance, repealing the national minimum wage.
He wants to expel Muslims from the US.
He wants to deport millions of latinos/Hispanics.
He will appoint Supreme Court Justices to repeal Roe V. Wade/

They are not voting for him because he is an outsider. That is just their excuse.
They are voting for him because they want what he will do.
