    On Tuesday, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak expressed his frustration with both US Democrats and Republicans, and threw his name onto the growing list of high-profile Americans endorsing Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders for president.

    While Sanders is campaigning for the Democratic nomination, he is a registered independent — and was the first independent politician elected to the US House of Representatives in 40 years.

    Sanders has been raking in endorsements from across party lines since his campaign announcement in May, including former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura, Cornel West, Joe Rogan, Danny Devito, Killer Mike, Patton Oswalt, Henry Rollins, Neil Young, and Glenn Greenwald, to name a few.

    Election watchers have commented that, if Sanders’ rise in the polls — in name recognition and in voters’ favorability ratings — continue, he’ll clinch the party’s nomination.

    As Sanders garners more media recognition with his massive campaign stops and rapid climbs in the polls, his favorability is sure to climb even further.

    The self-proclaimed Democratic socialist has surpassed rival Hillary Clinton in the early voting state of New Hampshire and is now within seven points of the democratic frontrunner in Iowa.

    As Clinton is forced to answer questions regarding her secretary of state email scandal, Sanders has spoke to over 100,000 people at rallies across the country about the nuts and bolts of his platform.

    Sanders support has reached such momentum that one couple even used their pregnancy announcement to endorse Sanders, and a New Jersey woman used her obituary to ask people to donate to Sanders in lieu of flowers.

    “Our little social democrat is due in December, and we want him to grow up in a country that offers quality affordable education, from child care through college,” the couple wrote in their announcement.

    "In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign," Nancy Dearr requested in her obituary. 

    It seems as though much of this country is feeling Wozniak’s exhaustion with the two-party system and is also ready to “Feel the Bern.”
