Bernie Sanders takes lead in Democratic primary race
Written by VSquareNews on February 19, 2020
Progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders leads by double digits in the Democratic Party primary presidential contest, says a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll..
Sanders has 31% support nationally, up 9 points since December, the last time the poll asked about Democratic voters’ preferences.
His next closest contender has 19%. But that second-place rival is former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. With this poll, Bloomberg has qualified for the Nevada debate, despite not being on the ballot there for Saturday’s caucuses.
