In 2008, the press raved about the young voter turnout for Barack Obama, but Bernie has destroyed the president and his establishment allies in captivating political youth.
While Obama captured around 60 percent of youth votes, Sanders is destroying Hillary through winning over 70 percent of voters under 30.
Obama received 2.2 million votes from young Americans, but Sanders already surpassed this number by nearly 200,000 with more states to go in the 2016 Democratic primaries.
What makes this extraordinary is how young voters continue showing massive turnout despite the fact their candidate faces a guaranteed loss.
Undeterred by foul play and inevitable defeat, the voting youth have charged the Sanders campaign, granting it enough momentum to power through the remaining primaries.
This example also reveals how anti establishment candidates enjoy a more energized support base than establishment politicians.
While Ted Cruz and John Kasich supporters quickly fizzled out into obscurity, the vision laid out by Sanders is such a departure from political norms that his supporters will stop at nothing to rally for him.
This does not bode well for Hillary, who faces Democratic National Convention in July and the toughest fight of her life thereafter.
