10 Ways Bernie Sanders Dominated in December

1. After delivering his strongest debate performance yet, Bernie Sanders won every online poll that asked viewers to pick a winner from the third Democratic contest.

2. He now holds a commanding lead over Hillary Clinton in the key state of New Hampshire and continues to gain momentum in Iowa.

3. Sanders won the readers' poll for TIME Person of the Year, topping Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Pope Francis and other world leaders.

4. He earned endorsements from Ronda Rousey, Killer Mike, Leonardo DiCaprio, Danny DeVito, Will Ferrell, Sarah Silverman and Dr. Cornel West.

5. He also secured an important endorsement from the Communications Workers of America union, a group of over 700,000 workers.

6. Sanders then scored big with an unprecedented endorsement from the progressive group, Democracy for America. This marks the first time in history that Democracy for America has endorsed a presidential candidate in the primaries.

7. Last week, Sanders received the final dollars he needed to break a historic milestone. The senator officially hit two million individual campaign contributions, a feat that no other U.S. presidential candidate has achieved at this point in an election.

* To put that number in context, Barack Obama's historic 2008 campaign managed to break just one million contributions. Sanders literally has twice what Obama had. Not only that, but Sanders reached two million faster than President Obama reached one.

8. After the DNC cut off Sanders' access to important voter data last Friday, his supporters rallied and managed to raise over a million dollars in just one day.

9. Although Sanders was not participating in the most recent Republican debate, he posted the most popular tweet of the night and witnessed a larger growth in Twitter followers than any GOP candidate who was debating, Donald Trump included.

10. Speaking of Trump, poll after poll suggests that Sanders is better positioned than Clinton to beat Trump in a head-to-head general election. While the corporate media often point out that Clinton is the one on track to beat the Republican frontrunner, they rarely acknowledge that Sanders is too, and by a wider margin than Clinton.
