Slipping in the polls, Sanders out fundraises them all

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders topped the charts, receiving more than $25 million dollars in Q3 fundraising. Sanders is also dropping in the polls.


Bernie Sanders raised more than $25 million in the third quarter of the year, his aides announced Tuesday.

The large haul demonstrates the Vermont senator, despite slipping to third place behind Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden in national polling averages, remains a fundraising juggernaut. Sanders also recently revealed that 1 million people have donated to his bid for the White House — a milestone he reached faster than any Democratic presidential candidate in history.

This certainly helps demonstrate how little the numbers we use to forecast election results really mean.
