Fighting for Victory in Iowa

The latest Quinnipiac University poll shows Bernie ahead in Iowa by 4 points -- 49% to 45%. His organization there put a video up on Youtube to explain the caucus process, and is renting buses and vans to take students to their home precincts where they can caucus for Bernie.

Bernie took time out from campaigning in Iowa to go to Minnesota, a March 1st SuperTuesday state. A crowd of 6,000 came out to hear him in Duluth and in St. Paul, the state's capital, the number reached 15,000.

On Wednesday, he had a meeting at the White House with 1 person -- President Obama. Did the two discuss Bernie's decision to put a hold on a person who has ties to the pharmaceutical industry that Obama has nominated to head the Food and Drug Administration?

More Debates?

"From the beginning of this campaign Sen. Sanders has called for more debates. Secretary Clinton has not. Now she is asking to change the rules to schedule a debate next week that is not sanctioned by the DNC. Why is that? The answer is obvious. The dynamics of the race have changed and Sen. Sanders has significant momentum. Sen. Sanders is happy to have more debates but we are not going to schedule them on an ad hoc basis at the whim of the Clinton campaign. If Secretary Clinton wants more debates, that's great. We propose three additional debates. One in March, April and May and none on a Friday, Saturday or holiday weekend. And all of the three Democratic candidates must be invited. If the Clinton campaign will commit to this schedule, we would ask the DNC to arrange a debate in New Hampshire on Feb. 4."

Appealing To African-American Voters

Another way to reach minority-soon-to-be-majority voters is through youtube videos. Check out:

A Busy Saturday

On January 23, Bernie supporters in 36 cities held marches in support of his presidential campaign. Organized through social-media networks, a thousand people turned out in Chicago; others marched in New Orleans, Auburn (Alabama), San Francisco and Oakland, Philadelphia and Boston. Nary a peep before or after from the MSM.

That evening, Bernie spoke with supporters in a live-streaming call to house-party attendees. Urging them to participate in phone banking to SuperTuesday states, he said he believes, "We have a real path to victory."
