Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would have beaten Donald Trump by a historic margin if he had been the Democratic nominee, according to a private pre-election poll provided to The Huffington Post.
The national survey of more than
1,600 registered voters, conducted by Gravis Marketing two days before
the general election, found that Sanders would have received 56 percent
of the vote while Trump would have won 44 percent. The poll was
commissioned and financed by outgoing Florida Congressman Alan Grayson, a
Democrat who endorsed Sanders in the presidential primary.
