Pointing to a basic issue for Democrats …..
The Senator from Vermont makes a VERY good point….
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said on Sunday that that “Democratic are losing because voter turnout is abysmal.”
“I think we can change that,” Sanders said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
Sanders rejected criticisms that his status as an independent lawmaker makes him incapable of winning the Democratic nomination next year.
“I think it is an advantage,” he said of his political affiliation. “Because when I speak to 28,000 people in Portland, Ore., and 27,000 people in Los Angeles, the vast majority of those people, they’re not quote, unquote, ‘registered Democrats.’”
“They are ordinary people who are sick and tired of politics as usual,” he said. “And by the way, one of the real advantages, I think, of me winning the Democratic primary, is that we get a lot of young people, a lot of working people involved in the political process, getting them out to vote in a way that establishment politicians can’t.”
