Sanders Thinks He Might Be Able To Convert Trump Supporters
Bernie Sanders said he thinks he could convince Donald Trump's supporters to vote his way, saying they have legitimate concerns Trump is tapping into.
At first glance, you would probably think supporters of Bernie Sanders and supporters of Donald Trump are polar opposites.
But, Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation," Sanders said he thinks he could sway Trump supporters into voting for him.

"Many of Trump's supporters are working-class people and they're angry, and they're angry because they're working longer hours for lower wages," Sanders said.
They've come out on the opposite sides in debates like gun control, immigration and taxes on corporations. But one thing they do have in common is skepticism of the mainstream media.
They also both agree that veteran services need more funding, but supporting veterans isn't exactly an unpopular opinion.
