Donald Trump's campaign is a grand gamble that he can turn enough angry white men, who have not voted in a while, into voters in 2016. He is ignoring the rules of the game and trying to find new supporters just like the ones he already has.
Sanders has started a social welfare advocacy organization to support progressive groups seeking to coach and vet those who want to run for office.

As we enter the thick of the 2016 election season, much of the dominant media has become mired in a play-by-play game of campaign narration. At Truthout, we view our role a little bit differently. Our election coverage provides the context, history and investigative substance necessary to hold officials - and the system as a whole - accountable to democracy. We will dive into the money behind the politics, revealing how corporate funding and other major influencers are driving candidates' positions and decisions. We will investigate voter suppression and deception. And we will highlight candidates' platforms on specific issues, and assess how their talking points match up with their records. Join us, as we travel beyond the sound bites!
