    Even Surpassing Obama

    Bernie Sanders is well on his way to setting a new record for fundraising by breaking through the threshold of 1 million campaign contributors. In an email his campaign sent out yesterday, Sanders asked for contributors to help make history.

    “We have a chance to make history,” the email reads. “We will have to publicly report not just how much money our campaign has raised, but how many people have made a contribution to own a part of it.”

    “Having more than 1 million contributions would be absolutely, totally historic this early in an election,” said Sanders. “In the 2008 race, with all of his grassroots momentum and enthusiasm in his incredible campaign, President Obama did not reach more than 1 million contributions until after he won the Iowa caucuses.”

    Hillary and the DNC are running scared of Bernie and playing dirty. Check this video out starting at the 8:41 mark. The rest of the conversation is pretty interesting also if you want watch the whole thing they talk about Trump and the republicans being scared of him.

    I really think you should look deeper into his plans. Don't swallow the right wing rhetoric.

    Do you have a link for them, dviss? I mean, so many people are telling me to feel the Bern, when by all indications he's espousing something that's historically failed, or else imposed some huge barriers to freedom. I'd like to see what he's actually saying/writing.

    Poll: Hillary Clinton's lead over Bernie Sanders grows

    Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton's lead in the Democratic presidential primary race has grown -- and if Vice President Joe Biden decides to stay out of the race, her numbers would rise even higher, a new CNN/ORC poll shows.

    Clinton is backed by 42% of Democratic primary voters nationally, compared to 24% for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, 22% for Biden and 1% for former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley.

    That's a marked improvement over an early September CNN/ORC poll that found Clinton leading Sanders, 37% to 27%, with Biden at 20%.

    Yeah the polls actually have Hillary gaining. It's really unusual to see.

    Hillary was beating Obama by more than she is currently beating Sanders at this point in the 2008 election, and they had already had 12 debates at this point in 2007.

    The more I hear from the Republican and Democratic candidates, the more realistic this candidates ideas sound.
