100 Words -- Trump Versus Sanders

It’s hard to ignore the similarities between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. Both candidates appeal to mostly white, mostly angry voters. Neither feels any great allegiance to their adopted parties. Both have big ideas (build a wall, free college) that are improbable to the point of being dishonest with voters. Neither man can provide credible specifics on implementing key campaign promises. Both rely on unlikely and unwilling revenue sources to pay for it all. (When pushed, both promise they’ll figure it out once they are elected.) Both are admittedly weak on foreign policy. It’s really amazing, huge you might say.
