"This mood is anti-establishment, anti-status quo. By his attacks on Wall Street and the power of big money Bernie Sanders has electrified young Democrats…young women included, much to the chagrin of the Hillary camp, which took it for granted that the female vote would gravitate towards her. Bernie is 74 and calls himself a democratic socialist. This would be death in US politics but Bernie has the guts to describe himself thus. I daresay with the young this would be part of his appeal. Trump has dominated the Republican race by his personality, his brash comments about everything – from women to Muslims to whatever – and his pitch to working class whites who think they are getting a raw deal in the present economic climate. Imagine a candidate taking on Fox News, before this campaign an unthinkable proposition. Before him no one took on Rupert Murdoch’s network…you sucked up to it."
