Who Said It: Donald Trump or Bernie Sanders?
Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump seem like polar opposites, right? One guy is a democratic socialist senator from Vermont who drives a sensible car (Sanders) and another is an over-the-top business mogul who owns casinos and luxury buildings and rides in a limo (Trump).
But they have a lot in common too. Especially because both are fiery outsider candidates who are tapping into anger in America about how things are going.
You could argue that Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are two sides of the same coin, attracting White voters against "the establisment"

This week, Bill O'Reilly said they're basically "the same guy ... both tapping into anger."
And interestingly, a significant number of voters in the New Hampshire primary said they were torn between Trump and Sanders.
What should be indicative of a commonality: that New Hampshire independent voters are torn between Trump and Sanders.#NewHampshirePrimary
