"I might find it harder to vote for Bernie than for Trump," Lloyd Blankfein, the 65-year-old former chief executive of Goldman Sachs, told the Financial Times last week. Asked about Trump’s "autocratic" leanings, Blankfein didn’t answer, pointing instead to Trump’s economic accomplishments.
"I could go on against Blankfein’s morally challenged tripe. But instead, I think he should hear from Gloria Pharr, Linda Overbey and Michael Collins," writes Helaine Olen.
She first interviewed these Nevada voters last spring, and spoke with the three of them again over the weekend.
None of them caucused for Sanders last week. But unlike the self-interested Blankfein, they all told Helaine that they will vote for Sanders if he becomes the Democratic Party nominee: no ifs, ands or buts.
Sanders “just goes on and on and to me it’s a fantasy," Linda tells Helaine. But he’s still better than Trump.
"Trump is tearing us apart," she said. "I want to get back to some normalcy."
