Bernie Sanders visited the University of Central Florida on Wednesday to whip up support for Andrew Gillum, a black socialist Democrat running for governor, and it was a truly pathetic sight.

“Dozens turn out at Bernie Sanders rally in support of Andrew Gillum,” Praying Medic posted to Twitter, along with a video of the event that showed a very small crowd gathered around Sanders as he spoke.
There was literally one person in the stands, and plenty of room on the floor inside the CFE Arena, which was partitioned to gather everyone on one half of the venue.
Other videos confirmed the abysmal turnout, which featured just four folks half-heartedly waving campaign signs as the crowd of a few dozen waited near the stage for the big event.

Organizers told The Tampa Bay Times “more than 700” people showed up hear Sanders rail against “billionaires (and) right-wing extremists who ignore the needs of the people.”
Sanders told the mostly college-aged crowd they’re personally responsible for whether Gillum becomes the state’s first black governor, and preliminary results show they’re failing miserably.
“There are 2,900 eligible voters from this university, all of 81 have voted so far. That is pathetic,” Sanders told the crowd, according to Fox 13.
