A lot young people. If you look at his demographics, Sanders resonates with young people and retired people. In other words, the people in the country that aren't worried about taking care of their families. Or, in other words, the majority of people who actually work in this country.
Sanders supported bombing in Kosovo and then had anti-war demonstrators arrested when the protested in his office. In 2001, he supported the war in Afghanistan, and then in 2003, he supported resolutions that gave GWB support in the Iraq War and the larger "war on terror." In fact, he has never voted against the Iraq War nor any appropriations bills for that war. He voted against immigration reform in 2007 and voted to protect the Minutemen private militias that patrolled the border with Mexico. In fact, he's voted with the Democratic Party over 96% of the time. He voted for HR 921 giving support to Israel's war with Lebanon. And he refused to support the impeachment of GWB, even though resolutions for such an impeachment swept through Vermont in 2006.
Sanders lives off pulling heart strings. He offers no real plans for his ideas, nor any way to get them passed in Congress. He simply promises free things to people and blames rich corporations.
