I’ve had a few friend requests but haven’t had any message conversations besides that.” Calkins has joined a few Bernie Singles groups, including one called Bernie Ideas, but says she was already familiar with most of the strategies she found there, like volunteering, phone banking, and canvassing.
Bernie Singles intrigued Griffin Winkworth, a 24-year-old Houston resident who’s involved in grassroots politics, because it’s the first dating site he’s come across that is built around interest in a popular political figure.
So far he hasn’t reached out to anyone directly, but in browsing through the site and its users, he’s found the overall experience pretty refreshing.
“When membership is based off support for someone like Sanders, it seems to attract a certain kind of person, mainly progressive political junkies,” Winkworth says.
In a documentary about her life, those closest to Whitney say she was in a relationship with Robyn Crawford, 56, the woman who spent 20 years by her side working for her.
“I have noticed that it seems like a majority of people on Bernie Singles list their sexual orientation as something other than heterosexual,” Winkworth says.
“And so I absolutely think that speaks to the kind of revolutionary and progressive campaign this is turning out to be.” Winkworth also thinks that Sanders supporters have more of an attraction, or at least more of a common connection, to one another than supporters of Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, or Ted Cruz.
