WASHINGTON: Bernie Sanders is winning sympathy from an unlikely ally: Donald Trump.As Trump tries to make common cause with Sanders backers attacking their own party, Sanders' path to the nomination has narrowed to the nearly impossible and campaign donations have plummeted. He's putting forward a long list of grievances with the Democratic Party as the reason for his declining fortunes. And he's threatening that unless the system is changed, Republicans -- like Trump -- will win over working-class voters. Sanders and Trump have both seen themselves as victims of a system stacked against them by the establishment.Trump frequently linked his fate with that of Sanders, expressing disbelief that Sanders could win one primary after the next and still be losing to Clinton.Sanders says he will fight hard to defeat Trump, whether or not he captures his party's nomination.Clinton, who is on a firm path to clinching the nomination within weeks, faces the prospect of winning back Sanders supporters, many of whom are feeling increasingly alienated. In recent days, Trump has begun to suggest that Sanders should mount a third-party campaign.
