Sanders Surges in Polls, But Is He an Alternative? | Socialist Organizer
Bernie Sanders has made dramatic gains in opinion polls against his main opponent, Hillary Clinton. In New Hampshire, he is 9 percentage points ahead of Clinton with 41% compared to Clinton’s 32%. In Iowa, Sanders has gained a slight lead over Clinton. Sanders’ popularity with liberals, youth, and union members continues to confound Clinton’s presidential ambitions. During a campaign swing through western states, Sanders drew about 65,000 people to rallies in Seattle, Portland and Los Angeles.
