Clinton maintains lead in latest Fairleigh Dickinson Poll- HRC -45% SBS 23% JB 17% M O 1% JW 1%

On the other side, Clinton outshines the luster of Sanders among registered Democratic voters. Almost half (45%) would vote for Clinton with a quarter (23%) who prefer Sanders. Overwhelmingly, non-white registered voters prefer Clinton (56%) nearly double to white Democrats (26%). Millennials are among those the most likely to endorse Sanders. The possible candidacy of Vice President Joe Biden would attract almost a fifth of Democratic support (17%).

“Although the email controversy has dogged Clinton in recent weeks, she remains the candidate to beat on the Democratic side. With the first debate looming, Sanders and other Democratic candidates will be looking to chip away at her sizable lead nationally,” said Jenkins.

3. Good poll.

Also generally agrees with other recent polls. Seems the numbers are stabilizing. The Bernie surge appears berned out.

7. Bernie has largest support from millennials, who unfortunately do not vote en masse

It is the older generations that will decide the election, since they are the ones that will actually vote. Unfortunately for Sanders, most older Americans were raised to believe that Socialism is the Great Evil of this world.

Ironically, Bernie is probably the strongest supporter of Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, union rights, education, wage fairness and other "Socialist" programs that are the greatest benefits for working and older Americans. But I predict voters will be put off by the Socialist tag.

5. The methodology is sound. That is the most important thing.

6. Bernies ceiling

 

Is 20 to 25%. And if Joe's numbers weren't there...

Hillary is now and has been clearly in the lead.
