Which is pretty astounding considering nobody really knew who he was. He also won Michigan and Wisconsin against Hillary. That alone should of been a huge red flag for Hillary not to take them for granted. Again, her judgement was awful during the campaign.
The Dems HAVE to go that direction and push the party to the left like the Tea Party pushed the GOP to the right. They're the minority in every level of government, but instead of looking themselves in the mirror they're blaming Russia for why the lost. Also, the playbook Bernie used of not taking money from Wall Street or corporations but from individual donations will be key to whoever runs. You're going to need a populist on the left to beat a populist on the right.
i didn't believe it was serious for one second, but those in my life supporting Sanders were very serious (even in Canada.)
I think I may have sent $10 just to mess up Hillary.
