Millennials reveal what they think about Bernie Sanders
Presidential candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is making headlines as new polls show him drawing even with democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton. Sanders credits his focus on middle-class economics and his anti-establishment ideology for his sudden and somewhat unexpected popularity. His campaign has received contributions from over 400,000 people.
With more publicity comes more exposure to criticism, though. Millennials, in particular, are quick to voice their opinions about the candidate. While many young people praise Sanders for his effort to make education more affordable and for his liberal views with regard to LGBT and women's rights, others fear that he poses a threat to their comfortable lifestyles and economic statuses.
