A second person has fainted at a Bernie Sanders rally for the second time in less than a week, prompting people to speculate whether the Vermont Senator is making his fans feel woozy with admiration.
A woman was “horrifically close” to smashing her head off the podium when she collapsed at the Senator’s rally on Monday.

Mr Sanders said: “Oh my God,” as the woman fell. She was helped to her feet and walked off stage, and the Senator was able to resume his speech.
It hasn't even slightly crossed my mind that Bernie Sanders won't be the next president, so if by some chance he's not I'll probably faint— Lyrïc (@akaLyricMcCall) February 6, 2016
Gawker writer Ashley Feinberg wrote: “Are they just “feeling the Bern” so intensely to the point that they literally can’t take it? Or is someone else trying to take them out one-by-one (not that another candidate would do that of course that’s not what we’re suggesting)?”
Last week the Senator ran to help a man who had fainted on the stage as he was giving a speech.
In both videos, Mr Sanders jumped with fright as the people hit the floor.
