There is no legitimate reason for a Sanders voter to vote for Trump over Hillary. Hillary and Sanders are far more ideologically similar than Trump and Sanders. Hillary and Sanders voted on the same side in the Senate on bills 93% of the time. To put that in perspective, Hillary voted the same as Republicans less than 40% of the time.

There is no legitimate reason for a Sanders voter to vote for Trump over Hillary. Hillary and Sanders are far more ideologically similar than Trump and Sanders.

Hillary and Sanders voted on the same side in the Senate on bills 93% of the time. To put that in perspective, Hillary voted the same as Republicans less than 40% of the time.

On virtually every single issue Hillary is closer to Sanders than Trump.

Hillary is untrustworthy and has a record of unprincipled flip-flopping, granted. But, you would have to be delusional to believe that Donald Trump is any more honest. He lies compulsively.

He said the unemployment rate is somewhere between 28-40%, that blacks kill 81% of white homicide victims, which is wildly inaccurate,

that John Oliver begged him to be on his show when John Oliver has never talked to him, that he (Trump) was virulently opposed to the Iraq war before the war started,

that Ted Cruz's dad associated with Lee Harvey Oswald, along with a million other lies.

Not to mention Trump himself is either lying about his actual positions, or, he is one of the stupidest people to ever become the nominee for a major party.

Possibly the most important issue we face in the near future is global warming. Trump said that:

""The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."

In my mind that is the single dumbest, most worrying, and all around buffoonish statement I've ever seen of someone running for President.

And for those who call Hillary a hawk, Trump wants to send 20-30k troops into Syria to fight ISIS and start capturing and torturing the wives and children of suspected terrorists.

The only legitimate reason for a Sanders supporter to vote for Trump is they never really shared Sanders' ideals in the first place
