Bernie Sanders Breaks Fundraising Record

Bernie Sanders Breaks Fundraising Record


BERNIE SANDERS MADE HISTORY. HIS CAMPAIGN HAS ACHIEVED 1 MILLION CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS,
MORE THAN ANY OTHER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE IN
HISTORY, AND HE DID IT BEFORE OCTOBER 1ST. THIS IS A RECORD FOR U.S.
PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGNS. DURING HIS 2008 ONE, BARACK
OBAMA DID NOT REACH THIS THRESHOLD UNTIL FEBRUARY 2008. DURING HIS 2012 RUN FOR REELECTION, HE DID NOT
HIT UNTIL OCTOBER 2011. BERNIE SANDERS IS WAY AHEAD OF
EVEN THE PREVIOUS RECORD HOLDER. WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THAT IS
THE GREAT DEAL ñ THE NUMBER OF CONTRIBUTIONS
THAT HE GOT WERE SMALL CONTRIBUTIONS FROM
REGULAR PEOPLE. THE SANDER’S CAMPAIGN SAYS ITS
AVERAGE CONTRIBUTION NUMBER
WAS $24.86. HIS PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN RAISED
ABOUT $26 MILLION IN THE THIRD QUARTER OF 2016,
HIS CAMPAIGN CONFIRMED THURSDAY. IT IS JUST $2 MILLION LESS THAN
HILLARY CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN RAISED IN THE SAME
PERIOD OF TIME. THIS IS THE MAN THAT DOESN’T
HAVE THE ESTABLISHMENT SUPPORTING HIM. THIS IS A MAN WHO IS RELYING
SOLELY ON SMALL CONTRIBUTIONS. THERE IS SO MUCH MOMENTUM IN
BERNIE SANDER’S CAMPAIGN, IT IS STILL EARLY ON THAT I AM
WORRIED BECAUSE WHO KNOWS WHETHER OR NOT HE WILL
CONTINUE, BUT I HOPE HE DOES. ANYONE WHO DENIES HIS ABILITY
TO BE A REAL COMPETITOR ñ LOOK AT WHAT HE IS DOING.
HE KNOWS WHAT PEOPLE WANT. HE KNOWS WHAT IS AILING
AMERICA RIGHT NOW. IT IS OBVIOUSLY A GREAT SIGN. THE ABILITY TO FUNDRAISE IS
ONE OF THE THINGS PEOPLE ñ HILLARY CLINTON IS BEATING
HIM HERE BY $2 MILLION. OVERALL IN TERMS OF FUNDRAISING
SHE WILL BEGIN BY $3.5 TRILLION. I’M SURE SHE WILL
RAISE FAR MORE MONEY. BUT I LOVE THAT PEOPLE ARE SO
ENGAGED, THEY ARE ACTUALLY PROVIDING HIM WITH
FINANCIAL SUPPORT. I WISH THAT NONE OF
THIS EXISTED. I WISH WE DIDN’T NEED TO DONATE
AND THE SYSTEM JUST GAVE A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF MONEY AND YOU
DIDN’T HAVE TO RAISE LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY. THE FACT THAT THE CANDIDATE IS
SAYING THE RIGHT THINGS AND IS HAVING THIS MUCH
SUPPORT, IT’S REASSURING. IT’S GOOD. IT’S A GOOD SIGN. $26
MILLION, THAT IS SERIOUS MONEY. AND HE MAY BE THE FIRST
CANDIDATE TO ACTUALLY NOT WORK WITH HIS SUPER PAC. HE WANTS TO SEE WHAT KIND
OF MONTH HILLARY HAS. HIS WHOLE WAY OF LOOKING
IS DO WE NEED ANOTHER ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATE? IS SHE WEAKENED ENOUGH THAT
IT’S REASON TO WORRY. SHE COULD SHOW THAT AT
THE DEBATE POSSIBLY. THIS IS A QUOTE TODAY
FROM MITT ROMNEY. ” WE’VE GOT A MESS IN THE
FINANCIAL SYSTEM WITH REGARD TO CAMPAIGNS RIGHT NOW. WE’VE GOTTA RETHINK CAMPAIGN
FINANCE.” I THINK YOU SHOULD ONLY BE
ABLE TO SPEND YOUR OWN MONEY WHILE RUNNING. HE WENT INTO MORE DETAIL,
BUT HE IS NOT PROPOSING THE SAME THING THAT THE REST OF
US ARE PROPOSING. IT’S A WELCOME ADDITION TO
THE CONVERSATION. ONE ADDITIONAL BENEFIT THAT
CAN COME IS THAT WHILE YOU SHOULD COVER CANDIDATES BECAUSE
OF HOW THEIR MESSAGE IS RESONATING, BUT IT’S NOT HOW THE
MAINSTREAM MEDIA DOES IT. SOMETIMES THEY SEEM TO DO IT
BASED ON THE FUNDRAISING NUMBERS. PERHAPS THIS WILL CAUSE MORE
COVERAGE FOR BERNIE SANDERS.

  • This will finally answer the question whether elections can be bought. Personally, I will vote for the one who spends the least amount on the campaign. A true conservative will vote for the one who will refuses to spend some other persons money on endless propaganda. We don't need new laws about contributions. We can just vote against the money people.

  • Sanders is a fake socialist, supporter of American militarism, Israeli zionism, bombing other countries. He is not the working class candidate, he is just another Obama

  • Unless you meet all these qualifications, please don't publicly announce that you've given funds to Bernie's campaign unless you're trying to cause a scandal. This means if you're not a US citizen or able to vote, shut up about how much you've given or don't say you're not an American. Up-vote so people can see.

    + This contribution is made from my own funds, and funds are not
    being provided to me by another person or entity for the purpose of
    making this contribution.
    + I am making this contribution with my own personal credit card and
    not with a corporate or business credit card or a card issued to another
    person.
    + I am not a federal contractor.
    + I am at least eighteen years old.
    + I am a U.S. citizen or lawfully admitted permanent resident (i.e.,
    green card holder)

  • Thanks to all those who support Bernie. I am so happy. Push for more debates this year and next so everyone will hear the message of hope.

  • People are pro Bernie! Just goes to show HOW DISGUSTED the public is with the bought politicians we have right now! Just be sure to vote in true progressives into Congress who will support Bernie's policies!

  • This man is going to bankrupt this nation. Has anyone actually read his tax law ideas? it's fucking ludicrous. socialism does not fucking work. See: USSR

  • I gave to Bernie. I have never given money to a candidate before. I think we will have a record turnout. Bernie 2016

  • There is no contradiction, but that's not the problem anyway. The problem is that you're on the wrong channel. You have to switch channels. All humans change their minds, don't they? Impossible. I need more time.

  • Is anybody else worried about bernie's safety? He is going to need serious security. The more popular he becomes the more danger he is in.

  • bernie is the definition of a career politician. he is 75, he will be 77 by the time he is in office. so you be the judge…

  • sanders isn't enough of a puppet, even though he's a freaking communist. He'll never win, because the corporate powers that be, don't think he is enough of a puppet.

  • Bernie is also contributing one million dollars of his own money to self-fund his campaign. He says this will allow him to refuse PAC money. Sounds like a good idea. BUT….

    I wonder how it is a guy who's ONLY job in life has been "elected official" can just cut a check for a million dollars? Can you? Can anybody you know?

    What does this say about our political system? What does that say about Bernie Sanders?

    Sounds like the socialists I learned about in school. You remember – those guys in the USSR, or China, or North Korea. His people are starving but I'm sure Kim Jung Il could write a million dollar check today if he wanted to.

    Oh yeah…we "feel the Bern" all right, comrade

  • I like Bernie Sanders, and will vote for him if I get the opportunity, but I think he's got about as much of a chance as Donald Trump of winning his respective nomination.

    Yeah, he's got populist ideas, but the majority of voters don't pay attention to politics in detail, and they don't know who he is. They DO know who Hillary is though, and they know that she has a track record of picking up the votes for minorities and women.

    Sanders is also hurt by the fact that he refers to himself as a "socialist", which is a "bad word" in American politics.

  • So a rich multi millionaire one percenter Who claims to hate capitalism even though he made his money off of it, just like Obama claims is going to increased taxes on the rich and give that extra money all to the poor, but has gotten most if not all of his contributions from the poor making him even richer, hmmmmmmmmm……..

  • WOW, this is amazing! Good for you, America. I hope he wins. This is how elections should be won, with the average people donations. In Brazil, politicians are also bought by businessmen, but we never had a Bernie to change it 🙁 This is hope.

  • Doesn't have the establishment behind him? He is for massive government and has the largest unions behind whim which are huge, corrupt corporations. 15 of the top 20 donors are unions. He is not against war and the MIC. He gutted the FED audit bill at the last minute (which permits these criminals to fund the MIC) and he has voted for every military appropriations bill for funding the Iraq war and the so-called "War on Terror." The man is a piece of shit communist. TYT are just a bunch of retards who despite focusing on politics and policy, can't seem to figure out how this charade works.

  • The rest of the country is finding out why Vermont has loved Bernie for so long. If elected, he will be one of America's great presidents. I like John's comments.

  • The Corporate Media is trying to stop this folks. The Hillary machine is in full mode but it won't work. It is soooo disgusting that the Corporate Media is ignoring this. They are trying to shove Clinton/Bush down our throats. Corporate propaganda. Don't let them do this. Send President Sanders $20.00 today. Send the Corporate Media a message. We WILL win.

  • Socialism is OK except you'll quickly run out of money giving everything away. He's just another spend it all Democrat. He is also just a typical politician appealing to the masses for money.

  • There had to be ONE sheeple candidate to get the deluded masses rising up. This happened with Ron Paul last Presidential election. He got a massive amount of hyped up college students.

    Trouble is, those folks didn't vote! HAW!

  • The Ron Paulites and the Paul Welfare Wellstone's keep coming back and being deluded. The name changes. But their delusions persist.

  • senator sanders still has no superPAC. his integrity is as consistent as his message has been for 30 years of public service. check out his record/achievements in vermont.
    I donated to his campaign (1st time ever) and encourage you all to do the same. he needs the 99% at his back to change the system. this is a historic opportunity to the the banksters what we think of them and what they've done to the country ( national debt in the trillions etc).

  • it's like almost as bad as when they are going to give an answer and have to add "So" before they say the answer like they are going to tell a story rather than just give the answer. Seems they are programmed to think it is needed. Now of course you can answer me with the word so in the beginning and I will know it was a waste of time commenting here.

  • When I have the funds I'll be donating to Bernie. I hope that my fellow Americans don't drink the Trump Kool-Aid. He is a buffoon and will destroy our relations with other countries (even worse) and put us in another war. He will make sure that the billionaire class will have less taxs and anything to set himself up to be more rich. I don't trust him.

  • Senator Sanders is the MOST proven, consistent & genuine Candidate that I have EVER had the Opportunity to Vote for.
    Make an Informed decision by Listening to 1 of His Speeches on YT. Think & Learn about the Solutions this Country critically NEEDS. Indirect Political BRIBERY and Corporate Off-$horing of Jobs, Opportunity, and Profits MUST End before this Country's Defecits & Debt overwhelm it!

  • I paid 9 bucks for a bumper sticker from his official cite and I deliver pizza with it on my car proudly as my contribution

  • Obama is such a let down for not just cutting the bs and saying you know what Bernie is my guy. Oh well, when people look back we won't remember Obama for anything more than his skin color. You had your chance and our full support Obama. You broke our hearts. Feel the motherfucking Bern …………..🔥
