Bernie Sanders has incredible, if not the absolute best grassroots support out of all the 2016 candidates (Republican and Democrats both), and has shattered records by achieving over two million individual donations into his campaign.
If there is one thing to be said about the Sanders campaign, it's that the power of the people are with him. Bernie Sanders was quoted earlier this year in saying,
“Over 2 million contributions have been made to the only campaign that rejects a corrupt campaign finance system. You can’t level the playing field with Wall Street banks and billionaires by taking their money,”
Bernie Sanders actually has risen 32% in the polls since announcing his bid for running for president, while Hillary Clinton has fallen 13% in those same months.
Momentum is on Bernie Sanders side, that is for sure.
For Bernie Sanders to beat Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Nomination in 2016, he will have to have a good showing in these key early voting states; Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.
That's why these four states are the most important and crucial for Bernie Sanders to have a good performance in.
Listed below are the dates of the first four states for the Democratic/Republican Primaries/Caucuses.
In New Hampshire, Bernie Sanders even holds a 14% lead over Clinton, and is surging in Iowa.
Bernie Sanders winning these four states could spell trouble for the Clinton Campaign heading into March.
Who would have ever pictured an Obama presidency in 08'?
A little known fact is that Barack Obama had even less national support than Bernie Sanders did at this moment in the primary season in the 08' Primaries.
So do not count Bernie Sanders out! He is a very serious threat to taking down Hillary Clinton.
