A new poll came out this morning and while it shows Bernie Sanders in fine shape in New Hampshire with a sizable lead, the CBS poll also shows Sanders 5 points behind in Iowa. But if you dig a little deeper you will find that Bernie’s biggest block of voters (The Millennials) barely were counted at all. In fact if you take a look at the chart below you’ll see that out of the 1252 people that were polled in Iowa, 850 of them were age 45 and above. In the 19-29 age group, just 194 were counted in this latest poll.
So what does that tell us? It tells us that Bernie is in much better shape than the Main Stream Media will allow themselves to admit.
That begs the question: Just how much support does Bernie Sanders actually have within the Millennial crowd? Well it’s a difficult question to answer, since most traditional polls use landline phones and even an online poll such as this latest one by CBS apparently aren’t asking many under the age of 35 who they’d like to see get the nomination. We could look at mock elections for an answer perhaps – we have a list of them HERE.
In regards to Iowa though, Sanders does extremely well with the younger generation, he won the recent Iowa Youth Caucus in a landslide. Read HERE.
