Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders surprised users on social media Monday; posting a bizarre tweet claiming the United States needs “national rent control” to regulate the cost of apartments across the country.
“This is a crisis. We need national rent control,” wrote Sanders on social media.

Sanders is now tied with former Vice President Joe Biden in the latest national polls; setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown between the two top Democrats ahead of the Iowa Caucus.
“The online poll, released Thursday, shows that 20% of registered Democrats and independents said they would back Sanders over 11 other candidates to run in the general election against President Donald Trump, an increase of 2 percentage points from a similar poll that ran last week,” reports Reuters. “Another 19% supported Biden, 12% said they would vote for Senator Elizabeth Warren, 9% backed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and 6% said they would support Pete Buttigieg, the former mayor of South Bend, Indiana.”
“The poll also shows that about one in five potential primary voters remain undecided. And among those who have picked, nearly two out of three say they are open to changing their minds,” adds the website. “Sanders, an independent who built a national network of fervent supporters while running for the party’s nomination in 2016, has consistently ranked among the most popular candidates since he entered the race.”
