While that might be up for debate, it is something Sanders has already cast his eyes on, once remarking in an interview on how ABC Evening News had only given his campaign a meager 20 seconds of airtime compared to Donald Trump's 81 minutes. So, after dashing through the skywalk and the hotel's kitchen, he addressed hundreds more supporters in a nearby room.
"What this campaign is about is understanding that no president, not Bernie Sanders not anybody else can solve this nation's problems unless - unless - millions of people, Iowa and across this country begin to stand up and say loudly and clearly: Enough is Enough. 'Thank you, Iowa, for leading the political revolution'".
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders speaks at the 2015 Iowa Democratic Party Hall of Fame Celebration at the Cedar Rapids Convention Center in Cedar Rapids on Friday, July 17, 2015.
"We sense real growing momentum here in Iowa and we think we have a great opportunity to win", he added. Sanders said he believes he'll have reached close to 50,000 people by the February 1 caucuses. "We have an economy that is rigged", Sanders said yesterday.
There are lots of different ways to spend New Year's Eve; choosing to go to a political event is a unique choice. We love it. No more golf - no more golf.
Sanders is not getting coverage because he's talking about issues and policy proposals and because the corporate media and corporate donors have decided Secretary Hillary Clinton is going to be the Democratic candidate. "The system is rigged".
This week Sanders has hit back at Republican candidate Donald Trump, who has suggested Sanders will have to raise tax rates on the wealthy to "90 percent" to fulfill all his campaign promises.
