Newsweek: Bernie now leads all Democratic candidates in non-white support

Full story here: https://www.newsweek.com/bernie-sanders-leads-all-democratic-candidates-support-non-white-voters-new-polls-show-1486807

Senator Bernie Sanders leads all the Democratic presidential candidates in support from non-white voters and has gained 10 points among black voters, according to new polls released Tuesday.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has long touted his support from minority–and particularly black–voters to demonstrate his electability for the Democratic party's nomination. But the candidate's support has appeared to slide dramatically among all demographics since his fourth-place finish in Iowa last Monday. Meanwhile, Sanders appears to be surging.

The independent senator from Vermont is backed by 28 percent of black, non-white Hispanic and Asian voters, according to the latest polling data from Monmouth University. Biden came in second with support from 20 percent, or 8 points less than Sanders.

A separate by Morning Consult, Sanders has gained 10 points in support among black voters, with 27 percent saying they now back the senator, as opposed to the 17 percent who were before the Iowa caucuses. Meanwhile, Biden's support from the vital demographic has dropped to just 35 percent, which still puts him ahead of Sanders by 8 percent.

But VICE and Ipsos had recently released a poll suggesting otherwise. Their survey found that Biden and Sanders were in a statistical tie, with Sanders slightly ahead. In that poll, 56 percent said they would "consider voting" for Sanders, while just 54 percent said they would "consider voting" for Biden.

Following Iowa's problematic results, which led Sanders and former Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, to both declare victory in the state, Biden has seen his support slide in state level and nationwide polls. Sanders now appears to be the national frontrunner, according to the polling data from Morning Consult and Monmouth.

3. A lot of people underestimate his support from POC

 

I think the results of states with more latinx and black voters may surprise a lot of DUers. He will likely get a plurality of non-white votes in some states.

4. Only EW gets a better grade when each candidate's positions are viewed through a racial equity lens.

 

Biden gets an F, a high F but an F nonetheless. Warren and Sanders get A-/B+ grades.

7. Here:

It's been updated since it was posted here a few days ago. Biden has moved up to a 'D'. Buttigieg does pretty well but has alienated Black folks.
