New ABC/WaPo poll undercuts CNN poll which claims Sanders' campaign is fading

Bernie Sanders

Two days ago, CNN released a poll showing Bernie Sanders had slid down 4 points. This put him behind Biden, Warren, and Harris. If that's all you heard this week, you might be a discouraged Sanders supporter.

But a brand new ABC/WaPo poll paints a very different picture. 

29% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents support Biden and 23% favor Sanders, with 11% apiece for Harris and Elizabeth Warren.

The poll also suggests that the number of undecided potential voters has dramatically decreased after the first debates, with gains in support for each of the candidates.

Here's a breakdown of the numbers showing Democratic primary preference among leaned democrats:

  • Biden - 29%
  • Sanders - 23%
  • Harris - 11%
  • Warren - 11%
  • Buttigieg - 4%
  • Castro - 4%
  • Klobuchar - 2%
  • O’Rourke - 2%
  • Others < 2%

Bernie Sanders ABC Washington Post Poll

Bernie Sanders remains comfortably in second with over a 10% lead over his closest contenders. Warren and Harris land nowhere near overtaking Sanders' position yet the CNN poll depicts them a combined 3% ahead.

One of the many lessons we learned in 2016 was not to trust the polls as truth. They can be misleading. Especially when they are used as a tool by the media to dictate a narrative and push candidates who align with their corporate interests.

More details on this poll available from ABC.
