I completely disagree. My dad, a lifelong Republican, told me during the primaries that if it ended up being between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, he would vote for Bernie Sanders. Because he refused to vote for Killary (his word). I heard many other family members say they would vote Bernie over Trump but would never vote for Hillary. A friend of mine isn’t even registered to vote and hates to talk politics but admitted that if Bernie Sanders would have been the democratic nomination, they would have registered to vote for the first time in their 30s and vote for Bernie. I live in West Virginia, an extremely conservative state. The fact that so many hard core older Republicans were willing to vote for Bernie over Trump but would vote for anyone over Hillary really speaks volumes.
