I Googled "Leon Trotsky + Bernie Sanders" and I found this:‏

From RRW

Three people recently approached me with how much Bernie Sander's reminded them of Leon Trotsky

I then said "add 100 years and subtract 75 IQ Points"

Bernie Sanders’ radical past would haunt him in a general election.

"There’s more. In 1980, Sanders served as an elector for the Socialist Workers Party, which was founded on the principles of Leon Trotsky. According to the New York Times, that party called for abolishing the military budget. It also called for “solidarity” with the revolutionary regimes in Iran, Nicaragua, Grenada, and Cuba; this was in the middle of the Iranian hostage crisis."
