Professor Eissler Comments on Differences Between Sanders, Warren Presidential Campaigns

Tuesday, November 19, 2019

BOSTON GLOBE -- As Warren has climbed ahead of Sanders in many polls, America’s billionaires have trained their eyes on her. Their attacks on Warren could stem from a mix of sexism and belief that she now poses the greater threat, but also because her campaign has been more explicit in name-checking billionaires, analysts said.

“The Sanders campaign strategy seems to be more about organizing grass-roots support for himself in early states and less overtly aimed at them,” said Rebecca Eissler, an assistant professor of Political Science at San Francisco State University.
