TYT: Bernie Sanders Raising Massive Cash WITHOUT Corporate Donors



Published on Dec 17, 2015

New numbers are out from the Bernie Sanders campaign, and they bern… The campaign has now collected over two million separate contributions. The media is all but ignoring him, but it’s not slowing down his small donor base. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down.

"With voting in the first presidential nominating contests just weeks away, Bernie Sanders is trying to make a push before the end of the year.

His campaign announced that he has surpassed 2 million donations. The only other person to do that at this point in a presidential campaign was Barack Obama in 2011. (Clinton had 600,000 donations from 400,000 donors through the end of the third quarter — end of September.)

Sanders has been raising the bulk of his money in small donations — 71 percent of his donations were $200 or less in the third quarter. Clinton, on the other hand, has relied on larger donors — 74 percent of contributions to her campaign were $1,000 or more, according to numbers from the Campaign Finance Institute.”*
