Bernie Sanders: “We Are On a Path Toward Victory”

Sen. Bernie Sanders wrapped up a two-day swing through New Hampshire on Tuesday with a rally at Winnacunnet High School in Hampton. “We are on a path toward victory,” he told more than 800 supporters.

“What this campaign is about is not just electing a president. More significantly, it is about creating a political revolution in which millions of people stand up and say loudly and clearly that enough is enough.”

Sanders stops also included a meeting with seniors at a community center in Dover, the opening of a campaign field office in Rochester, a meeting with supporters in Portsmouth, a town meeting inside a three-century old barn in Hollis and a talk with students at Nashua Community College.

Bernie 12-15

With New Hampshire’s first primary on Feb. 9 fast approaching, Sanders has a 10-point lead in the most recent WMUR-TV/CNN poll.

Just seven months ago when he announced his campaign the media pundits dismissed him as a “fringe” candidate running against a pillar of the Democratic political establishment and one of the best-known people in the country.

Today, the Sanders campaign rocked the political establishment with the announcement that his campaign has logged well over 2 million contributions. By comparison, the insurgent campaign of then-Sen. Barack Obama didn’t post is first 1 million donations until after that year’s Iowa caucuses.

Sanders also is gaining ground among those voters who are the future of the country and the Democratic Party. Virtually every poll nationally and in Iowa and New Hampshire has Bernie winning by large margins among young people. A new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found Sanders was regarded more favorably than any other candidate, Democrat or Republican. And a number of national polls show that Bernie is the strongest Democratic candidate to defeat a Republican next November.

“We have come a long way in seven months,” Jeff Weaver, Bernie’s campaign manager, said in an email to supporters. “Despite the odds, despite the obstacles, we are not only still alive – we are poised to win.”

    With the media blackout every effort is being made right now, today, by the 1% to hide and silence Bernies growing surge in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Fight back! We know his base is growing, we have proof. Yesterday it was announced that Hillary has 40% of her twitter supports as paid accounts as she tries to mask how poorly she is doing, particularly with young voters. We have to continue to push, continue to donate and continue to promote Bernie on all of our social media feeds since the donor class has major media sidelined. #feelthebern
