Sanders and Young Voters

Hosted by

Voting is underway in New Hampshire today in the first 2016 primary, and Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are leading in the polls there. Sanders has a 26-point lead over Clinton. Trump is at 31 percent, compared to the 17 percent held by Marco Rubio, the closest runner-up. That’s according to a poll put out by CNN and New Hampshire’s WMUR-TV. Sanders is also doing really well with young voters. According to that same poll, a whopping 87 percent of voters 18 to 34 support him over Clinton. But Iowa and New Hampshire are overwhelmingly white, which is not the case in the rest of the country and, crucially, in the next states to vote: South Carolina and Nevada. So how do young minority voters view the candidates?
