The survey results are in. Bernie vs Biden: Who did CREDO members choose?
Now, more than ever, bold and serious leadership is critically important, especially during a national crisis.
That’s why last week we asked CREDO members to weigh in on their preference for president in November’s election: Do you support Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden, and which political issues matter to you the most?
Thousands of CREDO members filled out our survey — for each response we’ll plant a tree — and here are the results.
Out of the 7,000 responses that we received – that’s 7,000 trees we’ll plant! – the choice for president was clear: Bernie Sanders received 54% of the vote. Joe Biden came in second with 43%, and Tulsi Gabbard rounded out third place with 1%.
We then asked our members which two political issues were most important to them right now. While all progressive issues are important, of course, CREDO members overwhelmingly chose “combating climate change” and “income and wealth inequality.”
Lastly, we asked our members whether or not they knew CREDO donated $150,000 every month to progressive organizations.
Approximately 20% of respondents didn’t know that we are able to donate nearly $2 million each year to groups working on women’s rights, climate change, LGBTQ equality and more because of our members who use their CREDO Mobile devices and service every day.
Because of our customers, we’ve been able to donate more than $88 million in total to groups like Color of Change, Planned Parenthood, Rainforest Action Network and March for Our Lives.
This month, three amazing groups — Americans for Tax Fairness, Friends of the Earth and NARAL Pro-Choice America — are eligible to receive a portion of our $150,000 grant, powered by our members.
