For The Daily Beast: They Vote for Trump and Sanders to Feel Like Winners

In his latest column for The Daily Beast, Mike Barnicle boils down his recent experiences in New Hampshire and highlights the palpable similarities between the supporters of last night’s primary winners, Donald J. Trump and Bernie Sanders. “Both, in their own way, speak to the volatility rumbling beneath the surface of daily life in America, 2016; to the anxiety, the simmering anger, the feeling that nothing works and hard work is no longer valued as much as it once was…,” writes Mike of presidential candidates Trump and Senator Sanders. Read Mike’s column on how Americans’ resentment toward do-nothing-politicians, ongoing war and economic instability since 2008 contributed to yesterday’s election results, for both the Republicans and the Democrats.
