This is the latest e-mail update from Jeff Weaver, Bernie Sanders’ Campaign Manager.
Here we come, John.
One month ago, we were down 48 points in New York. With just two days to go until the primary, we’ve cut the lead in Hillary Clinton’s home state all the way down to six.
Gravis Poll – New York Democratic Primary
Hillary Clinton: 53%
Bernie Sanders: 47%
Here’s the truth: we don’t have to win New York on Tuesday, but we have to pick up a lot of delegates. This poll shows that if we keep fighting, we may actually have a chance to do both. It’d be the most shocking upset in modern political history. That’s why we have to ask:
Right now, thousands of people are making $2.70 contributions to Bernie’s campaign. If you add yours we are going to have the resources to win New York, the Democratic primary, and take our country back from the billionaire class.
The political establishment was already in shock when last week’s debate in Brooklyn ended with the crowd chanting Bernie! Bernie! Bernie! after Bernie’s closing statement. On Hillary Clinton’s home turf! Can you imagine their panic if we do well on Tuesday night? And we can, but only if we keep fighting against the millionaires and billionaires funding Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
