Anti-union site reports union support as Sanders over Clinton 76 percent to 11


Oh boy Faux snooze. Grain of salt this one: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/07/11/sanders-draws-early-support-for-white-house-bid-from-long-time-union-allies/

That Sanders is now getting union support and financial backing is no surprise, considering he has been a long-time champion for organized labor.

The top-5 campaign committees and leadership PACs for Sanders since 2009 are Sheet Metal Workers ($27,500); Communications Workers of America ($23,000); American Postal Workers ($20,000) Unite Here ($20,000) and Machinists/ Aerospace Workers Union ($20,000), according to OpenSecrets.org.

The group LaborUnionReport.com also conducted an informal survey recently in which respondents favored Sanders over Clinton 76 percent to 11 percent and reportedly cited such factors as Clinton's silence on the trade pact, her having worked for the Rose law firm, which helped employers fight unions and her having been a member of the Walmart board of directors.

1. Good news, though not surprising since he has always supported Unions.

The TPP is going to be a huge factor in this election. Especially for Union Workers.

Since Bernie, consistent as always, voted against it, he is in good standing with Union workers.
