Sanders and Trump

Cape Cod Times letter, March 16, 2016.

Columnist Cynthia Stead is on to something, noting that many Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders voters have the other as a second choice (“Voters disdain government, politicians,” March 10).

What they have in common is disgust at the preoccupation of politicians of both parties with catering to big donors and special interests.

The difference is that the Trump voters would never support public financing of campaigns with tax dollars. Sanders voters hate the big campaign donors, Trump voters the recipients.
