Sanders surpasses Biden among African American voters: Reuters/Ipsos poll

NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has widened his lead for the Democratic presidential nomination and overtaken Joe Biden in support among African Americans - a voting bloc that until now has largely favored the former vice president, according to a Reuters/Ipsos national poll released on Tuesday.


The result could spell trouble for Biden, the one-time frontrunner who has lagged behind the field after the first few Democratic nominating contests. To remain a viable contender, Biden has been banking on a strong showing in Saturday's South Carolina primary, a state where black voters make up more than half of the Democratic electorate.


The Reuters/Ipsos poll, conducted Feb. 19-25, also showed that support for billionaire media mogul Michael Bloomberg slipped by 2 percentage points after the former New York City mayor faced intense scrutiny from other candidates last week in his first debate as a presidential candidate.


Among all registered Democrats and independents, 26% said they would vote for Sanders, while 15% said they were backing Bloomberg and another 15% supported Biden.
Senator Elizabeth Warren and former mayor Pete Buttigieg were each supported by 10% of respondents. Another 4% said they would vote for Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and 3% said they were supporting billionaire philanthropist Tom Steyer.

10. Probably not.

 

SC voters are significantly more conservative than the country at large. Including African-American voters.

3. Democratic voters SPEAK to the Democratic Establishment.

 

VOTERS: Look. You're marrying Princess Bernie ...



ESTABLISHMENT: But I don't like her.

VOTERS: What's wrong with her? She's young; she's beautiful; she's got a HUGE number of delegates ...



Better to laugh than to cry, no?

This is posted in good fun. Obviously, Bernie's not my first choice for our nominee.

11. Some online polls rate higher than some phone polls

 

This isn't some thing on a website where anyone can go click away. This is as legitimate a poll as others, rated a B- from 538.

Arguably, some internet polls are considered better than phone polls because they reach a wider range of demographics, considering how many people don't have land lines anymore.

14. I know a phone call sure isn't gonna reach me!

 

I would think a large segment of the population does not ever answer calls from unknown parties. I even use an app that would probably filter a research firm from reaching me in the first place.

The link to the results of the poll is borked in the linked article: The results of the Feb. 19-25 Reuters/Ipsos poll (PDF).

18. The DNC

 

The DNC sold the Democratic Party to the Establishment, under the watch of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders is leading “We The People” to take back the Democratic Party.
