Bernie Sanders Is Drawing Massive Crowds Around the Country—No Big Deal, Says Washington Post – In These Times
With each city Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders visits, the number of supporters he draws to his rallies keeps growing. Since June 1, Sanders has spoken to 100,000 people across seven events.
In Phoenix, Arizona, on July 18, he drew 11,000 people, setting a new record for 2016 presidential candidates. His record continued in Seattle with 15,000 supporters, and then in Portland with 28,000 supporters. In Los Angeles on August 10, Sanders drew about 27,500 supporters, according to the Sanders campaign.
But for Washington Post columnist Philip Bump, those numbers “don’t matter much.”
