Donald Trump made an appeal to Sanders supporters and said his campaign welcomes those who voted for the Vermont senator “with open arms.” He promised that he would deliver “great trade deals”.
There is little doubt that there is voter overlap between Mr. Trump and Sen. Sanders, largely built on the issue of trade and protecting the American worker. In West Virginia, which will be reliably Republican in November, more than 4 in 10 said they would vote for The Donald if Sanders was not the nominee.
However, in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Ohio, among several others, Mr. Trump’s ability to attract a segment of Sanders supporters could mean the difference between a loss and a landslide.
