Hey Australia! Want to Help? Head to American Samoa

Donate and support us on Patreon! https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=1785147

American Samoa is the most delegate rich of all the contests: 46 votes per pledged delegate. And it's certainly the loveliest place to canvass.

Every other pledged delegate in the country represents thousands, if not tens of thousands of votes.

American Samoa has 56k people, a higher percentage of vets than anywhere else in the US, and a family income of 23k. Bernie's work on behalf of veterans, as well as his March legislation on restoring SNAP benefits to American Samoa, will help him here. He lost the caucus in 2016, where 260 people voted, but you, our Bernie friends down under, can help Bernie collect all 6 of those pledged delegates in American Samoa on Super Tuesday.

Yes, I realize it's far away and expensive for you to get to, but it's your closest US primary voters, and it's guaranteed prettiest canvassing in the US. Enjoy the paleotropical rainforest!
