Four Things Sanders Should do to Beat Clinton


When Bernie Sanders started his campaign, nobody believed he would shake things so much that he might actually stand a chance against Hillary Clinton. However, his run has been phenomenal. His idea of “political revolution” impressed many, especially the ones who still believe in their dreams, the young voters.

However, the chance of winning the Democratic nomination seems tough at the moment. Despite his immense popularity, he has not managed to get enough number of delegates yet to beat the former secretary of state in the race. Here are four things he should do to win it against Clinton.

Use Twitter to Promote His Victories

Anyone who follows Sanders on Twitter is aware that he uses his account to talk about policies. While that seems fine, he should use the social network to promote his wins as well. Clinton shares a lot of images and videos to prove her point and thank or remind voters for her achievements. Sanders believes in using the platform in criticising the present system.

This is what Sanders wrote after his win over the weekend:

There is no way to find out about election results from his tweets. He should get some inspiration from Clinton and tell people that he has “got the momentum.”

Get 60 Percent Vote Share

Sanders must get at least 60 percent vote share from now on to beat Clinton in delegate numbers. What helps him is that he has managed to win big in three states over the weekend. He got 73 percent in Washington, 70 percent in Hawaii and 82 percent in Alaska. He also got 79 percent in Utah and 78 percent in Idaho.

Get Backing From Superdelegates

Sanders has already started his effort to convince superdelegates to back his campaign. He earlier said he knew a lot of them were backing Clinton. However, he called himself a stronger candidate against Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. “A lot of these super-delegates may rethink their position with Secretary Clinton,” Sanders told CNN.

Carry on The ‘Momentum’

Sanders said after winning in three states over the weekend that his campaign had got the “momentum.” Political scientist Peter Woolley agrees with the Vermont senator. “He’s got enough momentum to keep the media interested in the contest,” the professor of political science at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck told The Guardian. “He’s got enough momentum to make potential voters listen to him, when he comes to campaign here.”
