Sanders' Popularity With Oldest Primary Voters on the Decline

January 28, 2020 at 6:00 am UTC

Within the past month, Sen. Bernie Sanders has grown less popular among Democratic primary voters ages 65 or older. Three weeks ago, his net favorability (the share with favorable views minus those with unfavorable views) stood at +51 among this group, but the latest poll finds him at +35. By comparison, the Vermont independent’s net favorability among those ages 18-29 is unchanged over that period.

Morning Consult’s latest results are based on 41,997 surveys with registered voters, including 17,836 surveys with Democratic primary voters, conducted from Jan. 20-26, 2020.
