Is Los Angeles Feelin’ The Bern?
Fresh off Bernie Sanders' major upset victory in Michigan, we sent Sean Ewing, our field reporter, to Venice Beach California to find out how people feel about Bernie Sanders. Venice Beach is a popular tourist attraction with a diverse variety of people, so we weren't sure what type of responses we should expect. We spoke with people from Florida, New Zealand, Boston, Canada and locals of California. The latest polls in California are showing Bernie Sanders being 12% down to Hillary Clinton but, it must be mentioned, the latest poll was conduced on January 3rd, 2016. After Speaking with several people, it became clear that the majority of the people in Venice Beach are “feeling the bern”. We also ran into several people that are still torn between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders as well as a couple Donald Trump supporters. Its seems that the main reason several people are for Hillary Clinton and not Bernie Sanders is because they feel like Bernie Sanders will raises taxes too high. With California not voting till June, we still have a long wait to see who will win the state. Next week we will be speaking with people to see how they feel about Hillary Clinton. Let us know what you think of Bernie Sanders in the comments below.
