Voters like Bernie more than Hillary

Hillary Clinton came out last week telling us all how little people in Congress liked Bernie Sanders. What about the voters?

Rasmussen Reports noted,

that 37% of Likely U.S. Voters say they like Sanders more than Clinton. Just 22% like Clinton more. Thirty-nine percent (39%) don’t care for either one of them…Among Democratic voters, 45% like Sanders more than Clinton. Thirty-seven percent (37%) prefer Clinton, while 17% say they don’t like either one

For many Democrats, Bernie Sanders is the candidate who can beat Joe Biden for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination. But voters are less in sync with Sanders’ avowedly socialist views than those of his potential campaign rival, President Trump.

Republicans have never particularly cared for Clinton, so perhaps it’s no surprise that Bernie edges Hillary 25% to 13% among GOP voters. But among unaffiliated voters, 40% like Sanders more than Clinton; just 13% prefer Clinton.

Even among women, Sanders (32%) is better liked than Clinton (24%).

Only among seniors does Clinton have a slight edge, but 46% of these voters don’t like either one of them.

Perhaps she should make a comeback? After all the polls were wrong in 2016.
