Bigger than August

In August, GoLocalPDX reported, “The Bernie Sanders rally at the Moda Center hit an all-time high for the Presidential candidate for this election cycle.
The Portland rally nearly doubled the 15,000 attendees in Seattle. According to Sanders' campaign, over 28,000 people attended the Portland campaign event, causing a stadium overflow.”

So today’s event needs to show the same type of enthusiasm and energy. The bar was set high in August.

Thus, while his message has inspired young voters and disenfranchised older Democrats, he has to broaden his base now and change the dynamics of the race to win. He has had great upset wins, out raised Clinton in the past few months and his America commercial has the best as of the campaign cycle. He needs to flip the table.
