Bernie Sanders 'Surprised' By Size Of Crowds At His Campaign Rallies: "Sanders continues to trail Clinton in the polls by some 50 points. But he isn't sweating it. Rather, the senator argued that once more people have heard of him and what he stands for, the numbers will start to turn in his favor."

The number of adoring supporters who have shown up at presidential campaign events for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is bigger than even the candidate himself expected.
"I am surprised by the size of the crowds. In Keene, New Hampshire, on Saturday, we had close to a thousand people," Sanders told reporters on Thusday at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington, D.C..
The self-described democratic socialist, who has presented himself as a champion of the working class against the interests of big business and corporate America, has drawn sizable crowds in early primary states. Last month, several thousand peopleturned out to hear Sanders speak in Minneapolis, Minnesota. And in New Hampshire, the Vermont senator has attracted more interest, at least in sheer numbers, than much of the 2016 Republican presidential field.
Although Sanders said his campaign is "bulking up" for additional swings through early primary states, he conceded that he would ultimately be outspent by rivals who enjoy support from more deep-pocketed donors and super PACs, which are able to raise unlimited sums of money in support of a preferred candidate.
"We are going to be outspent, but that was never the question," Sanders said. "The question is could we raise the money to run a winning campaign? And I think we can."
Asked by a reporter what he had learned since announcing his run for the White House, Sanders decried the army of lobbyists and consultants who make their living by turning the democratic process into a business -- generally in the nation's capital.
"A lot of people want to make a lot of money off of campaigns," he said. "There is an entire industry here in Washington, D.C., of folks who are prepared to help you at some extravagant price."

  1. How can a politician that has dual citizenship with the war criminal state of israel and defends the attacks on Gaza be for the people? Please explain this to me.

  2. Sanders denies he is a dual citizen. His support for Israel, however, is a given. Not that it matters. He'll be "Ron Pauled", squeezed out, unless he has the backing of some important NWO supporters. Nobody makes it to the top spot without being a player.
