Was up liberals?
“The new trade deal is a disaster,” he told the South Carolina Freedom Summit in Greenville, South Carolina in May.
Other countries would use currency manipulation to dupe the US, and domestic jobs would be lost under the TPP, he said.

You could turn around every single point in your OP and apply it to Conservatives as well so I don't know why you are singling out liberals? Fishing for stars perhaps?
Why don't Conservatives leave aside their conspiracy theories and dogmatic views and vote for Bernie Sanders? A man who has stood by his views since he has been a member of Congress?
Why don't conservatives vote for Sanders? A man who:
Wants to get big money out of politics
Wants to do something about the massive wealth inequality
A fair and human solution to our immigration problem
Real family values, instead of the crap Republicans spew
And wall street reform
Do Conservatives not want any of these things?

I have read posts from the right side voicing their intent to vote for Sanders, but not a lot of chatter from the left about voting for Trump. Those steeped in partisan politics will not jump the fence, no matter what their party's opposing candidate promises.
If all else fails, some voters will justify their ballot choices with the lesser of 2 evils meme, especially if HRC somehow gains the nomination and is facing Trump.
Not voting for hillary. If she is the democratic nominee, not voting.

What are we suppose to do...dude?
All we can do is go by what a candidate speaks he will do
Of course none of us know whether he or she will really carry out promises

In a few quotes from this thread, you’ll see what I believe is the kernel of truth that will answer your question:
“If all else fails, some voters will justify their ballot choices with the lesser of 2 evils meme, especially if HRC somehow gains the nomination and is facing Trump.”
“Not voting for hillary. If she is the democratic nominee, not voting.”
“The liberals fall in line behind politicians that support NONE of what they actually preach, and take advantage of their wishes for 'peace' and 'humanity', and fall in lockstep when their leaders start dog-whistling about how the other side hates women, are racist, hate the poor, just want to fatten corporate wallets....yet their leaders fatten their own wallets and those of their friends, and somehow they see it for years now and still willing to believe its the 'other side' that caused all of this economic mess...and world political mess....”
“Uh, no. A whole lot of us who've been forced to vote for the lesser of two evils will simply sit this one out.”
“Why do you think we hate Hillary??? Because you can't trust the b!tch!! I trust Trump about the same.”
“Wait wait wait! Don't refuse to vote! At least vote for a 3rd party candidate.”
“I despise Hillary with a passion & if she wins the Dem nomination, I'm voting for the Green Party or a similar left wing 3rd party again.”
If you look at any Donald Trump thread currently on ATS, you’ll see a lot of posts about Republicans being old, white, Christian, uneducated, racist, hateful, etc. It’s not about attacking Trump, because he really doesn’t have a chance to win. It’s about trying to motivate traditional Democratic voters with the tried and true strategy: Whitey is out to get you.
If you’re Latino or Hispanic, then you need to get out and vote for the Democrat, otherwise those white Republicans will lock you in concentration camps and enslave you.
If you’re African American, then you need to get out and vote for the Democrat, because those rich white Republicans are racists and think that black lives don’t matter.
If you’re a woman, then you need to get out and vote for the Democrat, because the old men in the Republican party hate women and want to take control of your bodies.
If you’re white then you need to get out and vote for the Democrat, otherwise you are a racist, inbred, uneducated, Bible-toting, hillbilly.
When Trump is out of the race, the focus will shift to the next target, but the attacks will be the same, with additional emphasis stopping those evil Republicans at all costs. The last thing the Democratic party wants is for their core constituency to stay home when Hilary Clinton is on the ballot in November. I think she’s already been selected, but you still have to be able to show enough votes so it’s not so obvious that the election was rigged.
You go on their history, and their consistency, and the plans they currently have to implement if and when they do get the election.
Trump's history indicates he's all over the political spectrum.
He's been very politically inconsistent over the years.
He has a lot of talk, but no clear plan to do any of the things he claims.
