In the latest Reuters poll Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders leads Hillary Clinton in 18 – 49 age group. The Reuters headlines reads “Clinton Loses 10 Points in a Week” and while they still show her ahead by around 10 overall, if a few filters are applied, Bernie is ahead and in some instances way ahead.
Setting the filter to 18 – 29 year old females will show Bernie with a 13 point edge and in the same age group for males he has a 12 point cushion. If the filter is set to 18 – 39 year old female Sanders increases his lead to 16 points with 47%, while Clinton has 31%. Increasing the age group to include those 18 – 49 female still shows Sanders with a 1 point lead.
The Senator from Vermont that is winning over the hearts and minds of what seems like an entire generation has made great strides in the polling department. He leads Clinton in Iowa and in New Hampshire and a recent poll in California show him making huge gains in the Golden State and with a few filters applied, he’s ahead there.
Of course let’s keep in mind that, like all polls this one should be taken with a grain of salt but it does show a growing trend within the younger crowd. After all it is polling season and they are all over the place and it seems to come down to the “It depends on who you ask” routine. CNN, in spite of the polls we listed earlier in this article, and who will host tonight’s debate, has Clinton way out in front, in fact their poll actually shows her gaining, which is of course the complete opposite what is happening in most of the polls and online in general. Depends on who you ask.
Whenever a news organization posts something about the candidates, the overwhelming responses are in favor of Bernie Sanders. Now some people are quick to dismiss that sort of thing. Those people say, “well that’s just online support”, “Clinton has the delegates or is leading in the national polls” or something to that effect. But they’d be foolish to dismiss the sort of power that the #FeelTheBern grassroots movement has. The trick is to convert that massive amount of online support into actual voters. Bernie leads in the largest category, the youth, but that demographic hasn’t been known to get out and vote. But this time will be different. We are going to do this.
