    Why would you even post such an idiotic statement like that?

    That is rediculous, and they are polar opposites. The only reason people would support big is if they don't believe in anything that the candidate says and just want to watch the country burn.

    There are a surprising number of people who support either Trump or Sanders, and hold the other as their second choice. I hear about it over and over in the radio and read about it over and over again in print.

    In other forums I've asked about this. Like you say, I too think these two candidates seem to be very opposite. But I learned that these people actually have their reasons. The most common answers were about ending endless war, implementing trade protectionism, or simply voting for an "outsider".

    You could probably count that third one as watching the country burn, but the first two are real issues that I had not considered, mostly because I thought those people were idiots, which was unfair on my part.

    Because we'd expect the same answer from you, verbatim, if he wrote "Clinton/Trump". The primary race isn't over yet.

    What's ridiculous is the quantity of articles going back decades about how he's supported Democrats more, even said he was more like a Democrat, and all the conspiracy theories being bandied about. Who needs Clinton when Trump himself is bound to be easily grillable when it comes to all of that, and from his own party.

    Still, bread and circuses - yum?

    Didn't know the country wasn't burning or hasn't for the last 35+ years, how far should we go back and how come nobody wants to talk about moving forward with actual compromise and ethics and everything else?

    to the horror of the neo liberals Sanders and Trump do have the same trade protection /anti TPP policies, and anti-establishment, anti war policies. The not so free college and healthcare are the differences.

    Yes. And a lot of people are one-issue voters.

    Or is it possible that Trump will choose Sanders to be his running mate?

    Not necessarily on all issues. This article shows many similarities in their economic platforms and Vox has a liberal bent.
