Even though he wasn’t on the debate stage and was barely even a talking point for Thursday night’s debate, if the winner of the debate is decided by Twitter buzz, Bernie Sanders ran away with the gold medal.
The Republicans seem to think they could beat our campaign. They haven’t seen the polls. #GOPDebate pic.twitter.com/XitW9T28Vq

“Sanders had two of the most retweeted tweets during the debate with a pair touting his position in polls and going after GOP front-runner Donald Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims from the U.S. Both got more than 5,000 retweets.”
This victory is made even more sweet by the fact that Bernie has many millions fewer followers than Donald Trump and yet his tweets continue to garner thousands of re-tweets.
Donald did manage to gain more new Twitter followers than Bernie during the debate.
