Once considered a long-shot candidate, Bernie Sanders is now a serious contender for the Democratic nomination. Earlier this month, a CBS/YouGov poll found Sanders with 52 percent support among Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, while Hillary Clinton received 30 percent.

Thom Hartmann also recently attempted to explain why Sanders is so popular, pointing out he's even popular among some conservatives.
