“He was charming, he was direct, he felt fresh in his answers,” Ruffalo. “I just felt a lot of heart from him. He awoke something in me, and it was his ideas, and it’s his decency, and it’s his record, frankly.”
“This guy is exactly who he’s always been, he’s always been fighting for the little guy, and today that just happens to be the very person we need.”
“There’s an authenticity about him and about his history and about his career as a politician that speaks to me,” he said.

He added that he thought Sanders would “mop the floor” with Donald Trump.
“There’s no doubt in my mind he could beat Donald Trump if he goes up against him.” (RELATED: Kelsey Grammer Just Revealed Which Republican He’s Supporting For President)
