Some Democratic Party supporters could end up voting for GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump, if he ends up battling against Hillary Clinton for the White House, one expert has told CNBC.
"Trump's an outsider but he's been very, very successful," Dominic Dyer, fellow at networking organization The British American Project and Council, told CNBC Friday.
"Yes this campaign's been based on fear and prejudice to a degree, but (Trump) has gone in right on those trade issues, the issues that really worry a lot of working class Americans about the fact that they're working harder for less today. That resonates with the Bernie Sanders campaign as well."
"If you look at the swing states – like Ohio, Virginia, Pennsylvania – these issues of trade and issues of Americans working harder to stand still in the last eight years really resonates with voters."
"And I have no doubt, that some of the grand swell of support that's gone to Bernie Sanders could move over to Trump and I don't think we should underestimate the impact of that," Dyer said, adding that he believed this trend was already emerging.
