U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders enters his second bid for the Democratic presidential nomination in a far different position than four years ago.
The last time around, Sanders was a longshot against all-but-certain Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. But his crushing defeat of Clinton in the 2016 New Hampshire Democratic primary launched him into a marathon battle with the eventual nominee. The showdown didn’t end until the Vermont senator endorsed Clinton at a rally in New Hampshire that summer.
This time around, Sanders starts as a front-runner in the polls, thanks to his powerful nationwide name recognition, a massive campaign email list of supporters across the country, and a powerful digital team that surpasses those of rival presidential campaigns.
