ELECTION WATCH: FDU Poll Shows Sanders, Bloomberg Leading Democratic Candidates In New Jersey

A new poll by Fairleigh Dickinson University shows New Jersey Democrats split between supporting candidates Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg for the Democratic nomination.

The poll found that self-described socialist Senator Bernie Sanders received 24% support from Democrats or those who lean Democrat, while former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg received 23% support, a statistical tie.

Trailing well behind them, are former vice president Joe Biden with 16%, former South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg at 10%, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren with 7%, and Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar with 3%. Another 11% of the poll’s respondents were still undecided.

Krista Jenkins, the director of the poll, said that it shows the clear distinction between the moderate and progressive wings of the modern Democratic Party.

“Sanders has captured the hearts and minds of Jersey progressives, much to the dismay of Warren, while Bloomberg is it for moderates, even though he has yet to appear on a debate stage and hasn’t competed in any primaries or caucuses to date,” Jenkins said. “These numbers are likely to change as the contest progresses, but for now it’s clear who’s dominating the Garden State.”

The results of the poll also reflect the overall environment of the race for the Democratic nomination. While Sanders has gained the support of most of the nation’s progressives, more and more moderates are beginning to see Bloomberg as the one who could save their party from swinging too far left while also giving them a shot at beating President Trump in the November election.

  1. Who in their right minds would vote for either one of these 2.

    One is a Socialist the other thinks he knows how you should live and when you should die.

    The Democrats are not what this Country is.
