WA State is giving more to Bernie

Washington state isnít just feeling the Bern. Weíre on fire with it.

Consider: The Sanders campaign has gotten more donations from Washington state residents than all the other presidential candidates combined. That includes the one other Democrat (Hillary Clinton) plus all 10 Republicans still in the race.


We are talking number of donations, which may be an inkling to number of voters. Could WA state go for Bernie? I will be caucusing on March 26th.

2. Sanders might be getting a bump from Seattle City Council member Sawant (socialist)

She's done some good work out here as a strong progressive activist voice standing up for workers' rights. The stigma of the socialist label has been lessened with her for success I'm sure.

3. Socialist Alternative is backing Sanders, although they wish he would run--

--as an independent.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has collected more single donations in Washington state than all the other presidential candidates combined, The Seattle Times reports.

That is just the number of individual donations, not amount of money raised. Hillary Clinton has raised the most money of any candidate in the Evergreen State. Jeb Bush leads the Republicans in money raised in Washington.

The Times says Sanders has 14,322 itemized donations Ė and thatís just the ones that are large enough to be officially reported with the Federal Elections Commission. His total number of donations is an estimated 57,000.

Ben Carson is second with 12,000 donations. Clinton has 6,000 donations.

5. Bumper Sticker Blowout

Purely anecdotal but with the exception of one Trump sign on a pickup all I have seen are Bernie bumper stickers here in Seattle. And that's several seen every commute.

A similar sampling in yard signs is in evidence. Except yard signs seen have been unanimous in support of Sanders.
