6 News Capitol Correspondent Tim Skubick is diving into the results of a new Biden vs. Sanders poll and he found Mr. Biden is beating Mr. Sanders in a variety of subgroups of the voting public.
Taking a general look, the poll shows:
White Voters: Biden 24 Point Lead
Black Voters: Biden 22 Point Lead
Moderate Voters: Biden 46 Point Leader
Very Liberal: Sanders 15 Point Lead
On the education front:
High School: Biden 25 Point Lead
Post High School: Biden 20 Point Leader
College: Biden 23 Point Lead
As you might expect Sen. Sanders does very well with younger voters as he holds a 36 point edge and receives 49% of the young men compared to 34% of the women.
But Mr. Biden wins the senior citizen vote by a 47 point margin. And he carries senior men and women by a hefty margin over Mr. Sanders.
The response to the Sanders pitch for Medicaid For All:
(1) 33% Yes
(2) 50% No
Medicaid For All is the centerpiece of the Sanders campaign and here in Michigan 33% of his supporters back that but 50% do not.
Both candidates have spent about $1.5 million in advertising here to nail Michigan’s 125 delegates.
Despite a strong lead by Mr. Biden, in March 2016 Hillary Clinton had a twenty point lead over Sanders in Michigan but keep this in mind, she lost to Mr. Sanders by less than 2%.
