Interviewing voters outside a Bernie Sanders rally in New Hampshire on Tuesday as the primary vote was underway, MSNBC’s Katy Tur pulled aside a man who was watching their broadcast in a parking lot.
As MSNBC’s chyron broadcast Sanders’ lead in the polls, Tur asked the man ‘who did you vote for?’
“Donald John Trump,” he replied. Tur smiled, and seemed somewhat taken aback.
Tur then asked what the man thought about Bernie Sanders and his socialist beliefs.
His response was surprisingly articulate, as the man concisely listed the biggest conservative criticisms of socialism.
“The whole ideology would be destructive to the country,” the man replied as Tur tried to maintain her smile. “It’s anti-growth, it’s anti-family, it’s anti-American, and as a Roman Catholic, it’s anti life.”
Of course, the man is hardly alone in renouncing socialism, even if it remains the ‘ideology of the moment’ among the young and hip.
