The biggest surprise of the 2016 election is not Donald Trump's blitz or Hillary Clinton's emails or Ted Cruz's cratered campaign. Instead, the biggest shocker in this race to the White House is the success of Bernie Sanders, and the degree to which many of America's young and not-so-young voters so easily embrace an only slightly watered-down version of Marxism.
