Sanders Raises $10 million — nearly 40 percent from email addresses that have never given before
NEWS: Bernie Sanders has raised $10 million from his presidential campaign in less than a week— Shane Goldmacher (@ShaneGoldmacher) February 25, 2019
Two big stats:
— 359,914 total donors
— 38.76% of donations came from NEW email addresses that hadn't previously given to Sanders https://t.co/NAjd6SUwHH
This is rational economic behavior. Why not give $5 if they think health care is free — likely their largest expense after rent.
