Except for #10 those would all have been reasons to vote for Bernie. In fact, it sounds very much like his program. Are Trump supporters actually closet socialists?

There's a lot of overlap between populism and socialism; this is why so many conservatives were reluctant to support Trump.

He did successfully not accidentally get an auto-copied link in the title, though, so I'll take it.

That said, they're decent reasons. Some good might come out of this. Some of his stated policies fall in that neutral to even good range for me. That said, it is really hard to suppress the fear that the social pendulum is gonna swing hard the other way to the detriment of lots of people who don't deserve it.

We shall see.

Sanders tapped into the discontent with the "establishment" as well. However the DNC worked with Clinton to defeat him and consequently fielded the ultimate establishment candidate. For some reason many Sanders supporters found it difficult to support her.
