In Madison, Wisconsin yesterday, Sen. Bernie Sanders drew a record-breaking crowd of nearly 10,000 people at his presidential campaign event. Earlier this week, Sanders drew a crowd of about 5,000. The Vermont senator has been steadily growing in popularity as he squares off against Democrat front-runner, Hillary Clinton. Meanwhile, the Hillary 2016 campaign announced that it has so far raised some $45 million dollars. A far cry from the $2 Billion she hopes to raise, but still much more than the $8 million Sanders has in his war chest. Recent polls in some primary states show that Clinton′s huge lead is evaporating, with Sanders closing fast in a one-on-one race. A new CNN/ORC poll shows that nationwide, Hillary is still large and in charge over Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.
