Trump supporters if you want a populist president in 2016 you should vote Sanders in your primary if your state is an open primary state. Trump will not and can not win, look at the polls and poll trends, demographics. In 2008 & 2012 Republican insiders admitted the GOP would never win another presidency if they did not gain a good portion of the Latino vote. The GOP primary has pretty much destroyed any chance of Latinos voting GOP in the fall. This would apply almost across the board to other minority groups as well. Overwhelmingly they will not vote GOP this fall.

Trump and Cruz both lose by double digits to either of the Democratic candidates. As many will come out to vote against Trump as will come out to vote for him. If you want a populist president in the White House this year your only real choice now is Sanders, If Sanders loses to Clinton in the primary and Trump goes on to win the nomination he will lose by a landslide in the general election, even Cruz does better in the general than Trump.

I rather have Clinton honestly. I can’t afford Sanders “free stuff”. I did a Bernie Tax calculator and he will cost me 16k extra a year on my taxes. Sorry I like my sports car and motorcycle. I’m a middle class citizen and Bernie will reduce my status to bring others up regardless if I work 80 hrs a week. Guess what? I got free college, I joined the military.

Clinton will raise my taxes only about 170 bucks a year. I can deal with that. Trump will give me about 9k reduction in taxes and Cruz will give me 10k. So I can careless about ideology, let me spend my money on thing I feel important.
