Bernie Sanders Did What Democrats Couldn't Do -- Connect With Republican Voters

Submitted by: fancylad 8 months ago in News & Politics

Much like his last town hall in Kenosha County, Wisconsin a couple months ago, Sen. Bernie Sanders hosted a "town hall" panel discussion in McDowell County, West Virginia, last night on MSNBC's "All in With Chris Hayes." 

Watch the entire video -- he nailed it again. As you can see, Sanders succeeds where Democrats failed -- by connecting with a high school auditorium full of Trump voters. And when you have a room full of Republicans siding with Sanders, and regretting their Trump vote, you know something is amiss.

normalfreak2 What still can be. Don't discount the work Sanders is putting in right now, coupled with the fact that for the first time in decades we finally have a resurgent movement of the left. So long, Clintons!

trimble How did I enable Hillary?  I was vocal from the very start about how much I didn't want her to be the nominee.  I voted against her at every level.  Bernie didn't get enough votes.  Yes the DNC stacked it against him, but he lost. not enough people voted for Bernie Sanders vs Hillary.  Mostly because of the South but I can't fault the people that voted for her in the South.

Too bad the DNC killed the Sanders campaign because they couldn't control him.

RIP Sanders for prez.

"So therefore the Republicans have been compelled to turn to sectors of the population that can be mobilized and organized on other grounds, kind of trying to put to the side the actual policies, hoping, the establishment hopes, that the white working class will be mobilized to vote for their bitter class enemies, who want to shaft them in every way, by appealing to something else, like so-called social conservatism—you know, abortion rights, racism, nationalism and so on. And to some extent, that’s happened." -Noam Chomsky
