Sanders’ popularity increasing in California, according to NBC/Wall Street Journal poll

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Bernie Sanders continues to surge in the lead up to the crucial California Democratic Party primary, June 7.

With less than a week remaining before the state’s 475 pledged delegates align, an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows the Vermont senator in a statistical tie with opponent Hillary Clinton.

The poll surveyed 557 likely Democratic voters by landline and cell phones from May 29-37, with 47 percent of the likely voters choosing Sanders and 49 percent picking Clinton, with a 4.2 percentage margin of error.

When the poll is expanded to include all potential Democratic voters, including those who identify as independents, however, Sanders takes the lead 68 percent to 26 percent.

Sanders also leads with voters younger than 45 (66-30), first-time voters (72-28) and Latino voters (49-46).

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.
