Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in a tight race in California as the campaign batters her Popularity

Hillary Clinton’s popularity has slumped in California under an unrelenting challenge from Bernie Sanders, who has succeeded in breaching the demographic wall Clinton had counted on to protect her in the state’s presidential primary, a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll has found.

As he has done across the country this primary season, Sanders commands the support of younger voters by huge margins in advance of Tuesday’s primary — even among Latinos and Asians, voter groups that Clinton easily won when she ran eight years ago. Many of his backers come from a large pool of voters who have registered for the first time in the weeks before the election.

Yet, Tuesday’s outcome remains difficult to predict, precisely because of the untested nature of Sanders’ following. That portends an intense fight in the final days of the campaign.

The Vermont senator has battled Clinton to a draw among all voters eligible for the Democratic primary, with 44% siding with him to 43% for Clinton. That represented a nine-point swing from a USC/Los Angeles Times poll in March, in which Clinton led handily.

8. Bernie has barnstormed the state the last two weeks,

getting his message out to large and enthusiastic crowds from north to south, east to west. With all the new voters and the fact that those who decline to state a party can request a Democratic ballot, I predict a big win for Sen. Sanders. Californians are feelin the Bern.

9. Check out these numbers with primary voters under 50 UNDER FIFTY. !!!



From the same LATimes piece:



Among those under 50, Sanders held a 27-point advantage among all Democratic primary voter's and a 21-point edge among likely voters. Among those over 50, Clinton led by 32 points among both groups.


Clinton would have more easily defied Sanders’ onslaught if his inroads among the young had been limited to white voters, as happened in some of the states that voted earlier in the process. But he has expanded his reach in California; his diverse crowds here were reflected in the poll.

Among Latino voters under age 50, Sanders led, 58%-31%, not much different from his 62%-27% lead among younger white voters. The views of other ethnic and racial groups were too small to break out separately by age, but when all younger minority voters were considered, Sanders led, 59%-32%.

On the other side of the age divide, Clinton’s lead was no less impressive. She led by 56%-32% among white voters over 50, 69%-16% among older Latinos and 64%-20% among older minority voters.

The same generational splits were visible when it came to gender: Clinton led by 33 points among women over 50 and by 31 points among older men. But Sanders led by 31 points among younger men and 25 points among younger women.

11. Maybe one more sellout establishment Democrat’s endorsement…

 

…will make the difference for Hillary Clinton.

Which California Democratic officeholder—past or present—hasn’t been exposed yet?
