“We took on almost the entire political, financial and media establishment in this country and we ended up winning over 13 million votes, 22 states, and more votes from young people than Trump and Clinton combined.”

He won 46% of the vote in a race slanted heavily against him by the media and the establishment. Nothing illegal was done, they just saw an opportunity to push through a candidate who started with a large advantage since voters already knew her. Remember, Bernie started at 3% in the polls. If it was up to American citizens without the influence of television networks laughing about his challenge to Clinton and saying that he didn't have a chance from the start, if it was up to American citizens without the influence of 99% of sitting mayors, Senators, city council members, and House Representatives that endorsed Hillary, he would have done even better than 46%. If debates scheduled had been more like the Obama/Clinton debate schedules he would have gotten more exposure. If deadlines to switch registration from Independent to Democrat hadn't been many months before anybody was paying attention to the race in some states, he would have done better. 46% when the whole system is against you is damn impressive. Raising the most amount of money when you don't accept superPACs or certain major industry donations is damn impressive. Filling stadiums and getting young people involved in politics for the first time is damn impressive. He got closer to winning than the people working to stop him ever thought he would. All he cared about and continues to fight for is putting people before profits.

He won't be starting from 3% in the polls next time.

"At a time of growing income and wealth inequality, and with 40 million Americans living in poverty, I will be campaigning hard not only in blue states, but in states and communities that Trump won. But I cannot do it alone. Your donation helps. Thank you.

In solidarity,

Bernie Sanders"
