The Federalist Radio Hour asked for some perspective on the Bernie Sanders phenomena from a Bernie Sanders fanatic, Cassandra Fairbanks. Writer at Sputnik News and Teen Vogue, Fairbanks covers politics and has been a long-time supporter of Sander’s and now his campaign.
Fairbanks discussed why young people are attracted to Sanders and how is campaign appeals to people who are frustrated. “He goes by issues, not necessarily party lines,” she said. “The parties no longer represent the people, and that’s why we’re getting these oddball candidates we would have never thought would do well.”
Later in the hour, Fairbanks discussed universal health care, Wal-mart and raising the minimum wage, her hated for Hillary Clinton, and why the internet loves Bernie memes.
