Emerson’s new poll this morning shows Bernie is now in first place in the crucial Super Tuesday state of California — and the data also illustrates how the Bernie 2020 campaign is building a unique multiracial working-class coalition.
Donald Trump is a racist who has spent his presidency promoting anti-immigrant rhetoric designed to demonize Latinos and divide the country along racial lines. But new polls show that his efforts have failed to divide up Democrats. On the contrary, as Bernie heads to Iowa to tour counties that flipped from Obama to Trump, surveys show Bernie is building a multiracial coalition bringing together white working-class voters and voters of color.
In order to defeat the Republicans we need enthusiasm on the democratic side and Bernie Sanders is polling at the top. Out of 10 candidates ranked in the poll, Gallup found that Democrats had the most favorable opinion of Sanders, with 72 percent of respondents indicating a favorable view of the senator.
Bernie Sanders has the largest, most enthusiastic group of volunteers. His campaign brings passion and change and people get it. If we want to make sure our government and economy work for all of us we need to elect Bernie Sanders.
