How Sanders' Presidential Campaign Is And Isn't Like Obama's
Bernie Sanders' surge in popularity is bringing '07 Obama to mind. But how alike are the presidential campaigns?By Eugene Daniels | July 19, 2015
Hillary Clinton has found herself in familiar territory in her second White House run: a presumptive nominee, polling well against Republicans. And just like in 2007, a senator is running to her left and gaining momentum.
Both the Obama and Sanders campaigns focused on grassroots fundraising. And it's definitely working for Sanders: his campaign touts 284,000 donors with an average contribution of just about $33. President Obama had about 180,000 donors at this point in 2007.
