Sanders is choice of the youth in Cali, according to latest poll

Sen. Bernie Sanders is overwhelmingly the choice of young voters in the upcoming California Presidential Primaries, according to Public Policy Institute for California’s newest poll, released on May 25.

The “Californians and Their Government survey,” funded by the James Irvine Foundation and administered to 1,704 Golden State voters, found that Sanders was the choice of 66 percent of Democratic voters aged 18 to 44, with just 27 percent selecting opponent Clinton.

Sanders also leads when voters were asked which of the Democratic candidates they would choose over Republican nominee Donald Trump in the general election.

Sanders won with 53 percent of the vote, opposed to Trump’s 36 percent. Independent voters also chose Sanders against Trump, with 61 percent of independents going Sanders.

Trump’s threat of building a wall to keep out Mexican and other immigrants out has resonated with Latino’s with 73 percent favoring Sanders over Trump and 71 percent picking Clinton.

In a Clinton versus Trump race, 49 percent of California voters polled would pick the former Secretary of State over Trump, at 39 percent.

They polled 1,704 possible California primary voters by phone and cell phone and is plus/minus 3.3 percent, with 95 percent confidence.

For twenty years I've been reporting what my corporate overlords told me. Now I'm free to write for you, for me and for a better country for my children. After a lifetime of watching career politicians greedily consume everything within arms reach I have now seen change in the form of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. His message resonates with me and I feel most Americans would embrace it if they knew more about him and his policies. That isn't going to happen through mainstream media. That's why independent media like The Bern Report was born. To get the world out, unfiltered by our corporate masters. Because we have none. I'm looking forward to this new journey and hope the country is ready and willing to embrace true change.
