1. Great that so many are feeling the bern!

Unfortunately I disagree about the backfiring. Most people across the nation know one thing about Bernie's weekend, that he was locked out of an event in Seattle by BLM protesters.

The large crowds at the other rallies get almost zero coverage. So sadly only the well-informed about Bernie's campaign, which means the people already supporting him for the most part, get any exposure to the amazing events.

I'm glad people are still turning out for him, hopefully it continues to grow, but this whole Bernie thing is a long-shot at best, and the momentum for it all is probably pretty fragile. I really don't like seeing it messed with this way, he needs all the help he can get and then some, he's up against incredible odds.
