Will Celebrity Endorsements Help Bernie Sanders?

With the campaign trail in full swing, each candidate is doing their best to win delegates in each state's contest to capture their party's nomination for the presidency. Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are both vying to capture the public's attention, and one way of doing so is through celebrity endorsements.

While Clinton has her own core group of Hollywood elite backing her up, Sanders has also made a name for himself among A-listers in recent months. By having both liberal activists like Susan Sarandon in his corner and millennial favorites like Sarah Silverman, he has done a successful job thus far of assembling a fan base that spans generations and industries.

See some of the A-listers who have backed Sanders:
