DU Poll: Bloomberg vs. Sanders... the sequel! [View all]

Yes, this has been polled before, by me and by others. But it has not been polled since people had an opportunity to see Bloomberg at a debate. And it has not been polled since Sanders has demonstrated strength with PoC. So if Bloomberg may look a bit weaker than he did some weeks ago, and Sanders may be looking stronger, might that change people's preferences? So...

If your primary were to come down to Bloomberg or Sanders, who would you vote for?
