looking at the sanders campaign, it's hard to ignore that his supporters tend to be overwhelmingly white, especially white middle class and white males, and now with increasing number of white females too.

his crowds are largely white. some say he is from vermont. but he has had enough time in the media. by now, people know him.

what makes white people support sanders?

and what causes less than predicted support from people of color and naturalized immigrants?

If you tell us where you live, I'll give you the phone number of some television repair companies in your area.

Hillary was quoting someone, so she is talking like a specific person.

Actually, the latest national Quinnipiac poll shows Sanders having a +31 net favorability rating among blacks in America. Far more blacks like him than dislike him. The white middle class are more involved and in tune with the political process. African American voters simply have not heard much about him. That's the reason why he isnt polling so well, but it is changing.

Easy answer:

Working responsible people who play by the rules have been abandoned by the establishment Democrats. Obama proved this and Hillary will be more of the same.
