Bernie Sanders to appear on Fox News town-hall meeting

According to a 2019 Suffolk University poll, FOX News is the most trusted source for television news or commentary in the country while a 2019 Brand Keys Emotion Engagement Brand Analysis survey found that FOX News was the most trusted cable news brand.

Sanders touts that he's held zero traditional fundraisers and has an average donation of $20 - less than 1% of the $2800 maximum.

The 37-year-old mayor of South Bend, Indiana, raised $7 million, calling it "a great look for our first quarter".

Every Democratic contender has ramped up the importance of their fundraising haul for the first few months of the 2020 cycle, characterizing fundraising totals as the barometer for the viability of their respective campaigns. 64% percent of Vermont's voters approve of Sanders and numerous polls place him among the most popular politicians in America.

The town hall on jobs and the ecomony will be April 15 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and be moderated by "Special Report" anchor Bret Baier and "The Story" anchor Martha MacCallum.

Fundraising totals are a closely watched early indicator of a candidate's support, and Sanders has outpaced the other two Democrats who have announced totals.

Besides Mr Sanders, Senator Kamala Harris of California put up an impressive 12 million dollar haul.

O'Rourke raised $6.1 million during his first 24 hours of presidential campaigning beginning March 14, edging Bernie Sanders' $5.9 million over the same period to top the Democratic field. The average age of the donors was under 39.

There are a total of 16 candidates that have officially entered the race so far, and their initial fundraising numbers will give a good initial indicator at how successful they've been on the fundraising front in the campaign's early stages.

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke appeared to open the door to considering reparations for the descendants of slaves on Wednesday, in response to a spontaneous question from the Rev. Al Sharpton at the National Action Network convention.

It's a new day in Democratic politics, with small donors carrying the day.

O'Rourke's campaign said it received 218,000 contributions, though it did not reveal how many individuals were responsible for those contributions - and some people could have donated multiple times. Traditional fundraising isn't going away, Giffin said in a recent interview, "but that grassroots money can more than make up for it, and candidates have to prove they can do that".
