Looking back to Jan of this year, Bernie was virtually unknown to Whites, Latinos, Blacks, Asians, Muslims and in fact he was at 3% among ALL Americans just months ago.

That was going to be his biggest challenge when he decided to run for the Presidency.

(..) So, the campaign decided on a strategy. First to focus on the critical, though small states. Score some victories there, gain some media attention from that, hoping to increase his name recognition.

Clearly the strategy is working, because people are now not just finding out about his campaign, but are so supportive of it that they are forming groups all over the country to help him form the Political Revolution they know is needed right now.

One other important tool to get the word out, was the very powerful New Media which is where people from across the country get their news now.

Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton always insisted she wasn’t expecting a coronation in her second presidential bid, but a single-digit lead over Bernie Sanders was surely not what she had in mind.

It’s now clear that Clinton, despite a raft of political advantages that make her the envy of rivals from both parties, faces a stubborn obstacle in her quest to win the Democratic nomination.

She must weather the summer of Sanders.

The diplomatic overture was dispatched to Hu Yaobang, chairman of the Chinese Communist party, on 29 October 1981. A near-identical letter was sent to the Kremlin, for the attention of Leonid Brezhnev, general secretary of the Communist party of the Soviet Union.

“Like an unconscious and uncontrollable force, our planet appears to be drifting toward self-destruction,” the newly installed socialist leader of somewhere called Burlington wrote. He urged them “in the strongest possible way” to disarm militarily and begin immediate negotiations with other world leaders.

Sanders surge is becoming a bigger problem for Clinton

It may be time for Hillary Clinton to take the challenge from Sen. Bernie Sanders more seriously.
Sanders is surging in the race for the party’s presidential nomination.

The Vermont Independent has drawn huge crowds of supporters in Iowa and New Hampshire, and pulled within striking distance of Clinton in some Granite State polls. “This is not a protest campaign,” Sanders declared at a breakfast with reporters in Washington last week. “This is a campaign to win.” He’s also a powerful presence on social media, where supporters are eager to share news about his campaign. While Clinton remains the runaway favorite, the strength of Sanders’s challenge — particularly in the states hosting the first two nominating contests — is starting to get attention.

WICHITA, Kan. — Charles Koch said he is considering throwing his political might into the Republican presidential primary for the first time and is likely to provide financial help to several contenders before settling on a single candidate.

Koch, his brother David and their team have identified five candidates who have the right message and “a good chance of getting elected,”
he told USA TODAY in an exclusive interview at Koch Industries’ headquarters. They are Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Florida governor Jeb Bush and Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Marco Rubio of Florida.

“Those are the ones we have talked to the most and who seem to be the possible leaders,” he said.
