Barney Frank: ‘Lack of Information’ Driving Support for Bernie Sanders

‘You have people who don’t understand frankly the nature of the American political system’

Barney Frank: ‘Lack of Information’ Driving Support for Bernie Sanders (The Washington Free Beacon)

Hillary Clinton supporter and former Rep. Barney Frank (D., Mass.) said Monday that a “lack of information” was to blame for the greater enthusiasm for Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) in the Democratic primary race.

MSNBC host José Díaz-Balart quoted Sanders’ Slate interview where he assailed Sanders for a lack of accomplishments in Congress and said he was “disappointed” with voters expressing anger with their choice.

“The fact is that failure to vote really does cause a series of problems for a democracy,” Díaz-Balart said. “There’s no question about it. Why is it that you think so many people are enthusiastically supporting people like Bernie Sanders, people like Donald Trump? And I’m talking about some people that in the past maybe haven’t been motivated to go out and vote?”
