Right now, there is a candidate for President few party members like, but is the presumptive candidate for said party. This candidate has been accused of being out of touch with the grassroots, too extremist, and utterly unlikable. Of course, this candidate’s supporters say if we don’t vote for the candidate, the candidate from the other major party is going to win and do far worse things, so voters should hold their noses and vote for the candidate.
Of course, opponents to this candidate are holding out for someone they feel is better, someone closer to their ideals of what a President should be. They are being told to stop holding out for their candidate and line up behind the presumptive candidate to preserve party unity.
The aforementioned candidates are…Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, respectively. Although, these same sentiments are being used by Donald Trump supporters to get Republicans and conservatives to climb aboard the Trump Train.
If Clinton and Trump are using the same rhetoric to force unity within their respective parties, how different can they actually be?
