Bernie Sanders Strongest Democrat Among College Students Heading Into Super Tuesday
“numbers bode well for Sanders on Tuesday as he seeks to overtake the so-called moderate establishment wing of the Democratic Party”
It’s no surprise that the candidate pushing free college is popular among college students.
Campus Reform reports:
Sanders strongest among students heading into Super Tuesday
In the hours after the South Carolina Democratic primary, three Democratic presidential contenders- Tom Steyer, Pete Buttigieg, and Amy Klobuchar- declared the ends of their candidacies, leaving Sen. Bernie Sanders, former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as the top Democratic contenders to take on President Donald Trump in November.
Now, as voters in more than a dozen states prepare to head to the polls on Super Tuesday, the question that has dogged Democrats since the start of this contest is as unsure as ever: Is the Democratic electorate more moderate, or has it shifted to one that could put the party on track to nominate a self-described Democratic socialist for the first time in its history?
The answer to that question largely depends on geographical location or demographics, particularly when it comes to age. For example, as Campus Reform has reported, younger Americans are much more likely to vote for a socialist than are older Americans. A recent YouGov poll found that 70 percent of millennials said they are likely to vote for a socialist while 36 percent said they approve of communism.
Those numbers bode well for Sanders on Tuesday as he seeks to overtake the so-called moderate establishment wing of the Democratic Party.
In addition to calling himself a Democratic Socialist, insisting that’s different from the type of socialism seen in countries like Venezuela or Cuba, Sanders has praised communist dictators multiple times, seemingly dismissing how their regimes have killed millions of people and instead focusing on how their government-run programs helped more people learn to read.

Open any YouTube video celebrating Bernie. One after another, many of the comments are virtually identical. Top favorites these days include “But he’s so consistent!” (translation: hasn’t changed his Marxist political positions for the last 40 years). Another favorite: “But he’s the Amendment King!” Then there’s a claim that he deliberately removed his name as co-sponsor from various bills to help avoid scrutiny and ensure they would pass (“What courage!”).
If he wins the election (how frightening!), it won’t be pretty when the ignorant children find out the cost of so much “free stuff.”
