Bernie Sanders Gets an Online Upswing

Facebook data obtained by the Daily News shows that more than twice as many people were talking about Sanders last week on the social media platform than in the week before, and that the overall conversation about him nearly tripled in the same time, from 5.5 million unique interactions the week ending Aug. 5 to 14.4 million in the week ending Aug. 12.

Google Trends reveals a similar rise:

“More people have been searching about Sanders than Clinton since mid-June, partly because he’s more of an unknown so more are looking for basic information. But searches of his name spiked starting last Saturday, during a string of huge rallies he held on the West Coast that drew from 8,000 to 28,000 people, and a Black Lives Matter protest that interrupted his Seattle event. He even overtook Donald Trump in total Google searches last Monday.”

2. You can bet your sweet bippie they are panicking. Kind of interesting,

 

and maybe just me, but Bernie seems to be getting more rumpled and Hillary is getting more stoic. She did give a great speech but she doesn't do "tension" very well and it's showing.

3. She gets a "look" on her face...that we've seen before.

When seriously pressed, I expect to see that "look" again.

7. First time I ever heard a Democratic primary candidate campaign for the Republican Presidential

nominee over a Democratic primary opponent. First time I ever saw a Democratic primary candidate force an obvious Democratic nominee to continue using time, money and energy on campaigning in a primary while the obvious Republican nominee was doing general campaigning.

Whether running as an Indie or a Democrat, Bernie would never have done that. Or used "racially tinged" campaign tactics against anyone, let alone the first African American with a shot at the Presidency.

Life is full of ironies, no?
