Bernie Sanders has been having a rough time as of late. His 2020 presidential campaign is currently embroiled in scandals which allege that staffers have been underpaid, harassed and intimidated; mind you, this is happening as Sanders claims to want a $15.00 per hour minimum wage for working people in America. All of this really goes to show how even progressives do not adhere to the notable rules which they strive to inflict on this nation as a whole.
In order to salvage what is left of his campaign, Sanders traveled to Santa Monica, California on Friday to rally with supporters, as documented by Breitbart News. During his time in the Golden State, the self-proclaimed socialist continued branding himself as a man of the people who is fighting for the working class.
Of course, if Sanders truly cared for working people as much as he claimed, he would pay his staffers $15.00 per hour…without reducing their hours to save himself money.
Talking Points During the Latest Sanders Campaign
Sanders spent his time ranting about the supposed evils of Wall Street, the fossil fuel industry and big Pharma. These are common talking points from Sanders who is currently pulling in at third place in the polls amongst Democrat voters. Despite how much the candidate claims to abhor various industries, he supports reforms and programs which would increase governmental power and enable even more corruption.
Notwithstanding the support which Sanders received from like-minded progressives, other Americans noticed that the size of his crowds has considerably diminished from previous times. On Friday, Sanders managed to attract roughly 1,000 individuals, a significant reduction of crowd quantities which he managed to garner in 2016.
Are Americans getting tired of Bernie Sanders? Only time will tell. However, California is being viewed as a significant battleground state which will carry immense weight in 2020.
The Beginning of the End for Sanders 2020?
Bernie Sanders does not have a good track record when it comes to campaigning to become president of the United States. Either Sanders and his atrocious policies are deeply unpopular, even amongst Democrats, or there are some hidden powers that be which truly do not want Sanders to win his party’s nomination.
Whichever it is, he’s not doing very well. With the second Democrat primary debates coming up next week, it will be interesting to see how long Sanders is able to go on. At this time, he still has yet to get ahead of the various scandals which surround his presidential campaign.
