"I’m going to hold a fundraiser right here, right now, across America. My request is please go to BernieSanders.com and contribute," Bernie Sanders said.

It seems like his fundraiser worked. Within 18 hours of his victory speech in New Hampshire, Sanders’ campaign received a record $5.2 million. 

That amounts to $4,815 a minute or more than $80 per second.

The average donation in that time was $34, meaning more than 150,000 people are "feeling the Bern."
