Poll: U.S. Senator Sanders Now Has A Double-Digit National Lead In The Democratic Presidential Contest

NBC: NBC News/WSJ poll: Sanders opens up double-digit lead nationally

LAS VEGAS — Sen. Bernie Sanders has jumped out to a double-digit national lead in the Democratic presidential contest after his victory in New Hampshire's primary and his second-place finish for delegates in Iowa's disorganized caucuses, while former Vice President Joe Biden has seen his support drop by 11 points since his disappointing finishes in both contests, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Tuesday.

The survey also shows former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg gaining ground in the Democratic race in the past month, confirming the findings of an earlier NPR/PBS/Marist poll that allowed him to qualify for Wednesday night's NBC News and MSNBC Democratic debate in Las Vegas.

And the poll has President Donald Trump's approval rating tied for his all-time high in the NBC News/WSJ survey, while also finding that the most unpopular candidate qualities in a general election are being a socialist, being older than 75 years of age and having a heart attack in the past year.

WNU Editor: This NBC/WSJ also says that Sen. Bernie Sanders will defeat President Trump in a general election (50 percent to 46 percent). What's my take on this Sander's surge. It is obvious that his message is resonating with a lot of Americans. That while the US economy is doing well, many are finding themselves in an economic situation where it is difficult to make ends meet, and they are responding to Sen. Sander's message. In my opinion he is the front runner in the Democrat field, and the only one positioned to stop him is former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg. But Bloomberg has already spent over $300 million in his primary challenge, and even with a compliant media and the Democrat establishment firmly against the Vermont Senator, they have not stopped Sen. Bernie Sanders.
