I'm not going to bring pie charts or easily manipulated poll results to the conversation. I'm getting my information from the people speaking their minds. Call it anecdotal if ya want, but straight from the horses mouth seems a bit more believable than silly poll results.
All the Union folks who I SWORE would be behind Sanders, want nothing to do with him and it really surprises me.

And that's literally the only evidence that Trump supporters ever present. Anecdotal.

IMO, The one and only thing you got right in your OP is the fact that America is angry.
Both, the Trump & Sanders campaigns are clear reflections of that fact.
While Americans are indeed angry, we're NOT mean or vindictive and Trump is the personification of both.
They say one of the biggest mistakes someone can make, is to underestimate their opponent and based on your post in this thread regarding the Sanders campaign, it's clear that you're doing just that.
Nobody, I repeat "NOBODY," beats Trump by bigger margins in any poll than Sanders!
There's nothing I'd like to see more than a matchup between Trump & Sanders.

Trump has no chance if he is against Sanders.
Trump will win if he is against Clinton.
Slightly more than half—52 percent—said they backed Clinton, while 37 percent opted for Sanders, the first time that her advantage has been less than 20 points. In the university's December survey, Clinton held a substantially larger 33-point advantage over Sanders—59 percent to 26 percent. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley polled well within the margin of error, at 2 percent.
Asked who would have a better shot against Trump, 44 percent said Clinton would, while only 16 percent said the Vermont senator would have more of a chance. Meanwhile, 35 percent said they would have about an equal opportunity. In the case of Ted Cruz, 39 percent said Clinton would do better, compared to 17 percent for Sanders and 37 percent for both. Asked who would do better against Marco Rubio, 39 percent said Clinton would, 37 percent said they would have an equal shot and just 17 percent said Sanders would.
Sanders and his campaign have frequently pointed to past polls showing them performing better against Trump than Clinton to emphasize the point of electability. In contrast to the question posed in this poll, those questions have typically presented respondents with head-to-head matchups (for example, Sanders vs. Trump, Clinton vs. Trump) rather than asking which candidate would have a better shot at beating a given candidate.
