Bernie Sanders Rally Draws Young Voters to the Stiefel Theatre in St. Louis


Sanders stopped in St. Louis this morning for a campaign rally, a day ahead of Missouri's Democratic primary. Outside of the Stiefel Theatre, the lines wrapped around the block to get in. People poured into the event as the hours passed. Nearly every seat in theatre was filled. No protestors were standing on corners, just street vendors selling buttons and hoodies.

In comparison to his rival former Vice President Joe Biden, Sanders drew a much younger crowd. Many attendees were voting in their first or second election. At the Biden rally on Saturday morning, high school students seemed to be the minority. At Stifel, it seemed the roles reversed.
