Bernie Sanders appears largely set for a big victory in this week’s Nevada caucuses, with polls suggesting the democratic socialist could win by a whopping margin of up to 19 percentage points.
Monday’s poll from Data for Progress revealed that Bernie Sanders holds a dominant lead of 35% in the state, which is third to vote in the Democratic primary process. Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg follow in a distant second and third with 16 and 15 percent.
More polling shows Sanders with a statistically significant lead, making it all but certain that the Vermont Senator will win the Nevada caucuses, which will occur on Saturday.
Staff for other Democratic candidates are already admitting that their battle in the western state will be for second place.
A big Sanders victory could heighten fears of his nomination among the Democratic establishment, who staunchly oppose Sanders’ left-wing vision for the Democratic Party.
A Sanders victory in South Carolina, the next state to vote, could all but wrap up the Democratic primary and send Sanders on an easy path to the nomination. Joe Biden, once the undisputed front-runner, will be hard-pressed to drop out if he fails to secure a victory in the southern state, long thought of as a redoubt for his struggling campaign.
Mike Bloomberg, an authoritarian oligarch attempting to buy the election through unprecedented campaign spending, remains a dark horse for the nomination, but the strength of his candidacy remains unverified until he actually competes on the ballot in upcoming Super Tuesday states.
Donald Trump’s re-election campaign may shift gears in preparing to face off against Sanders in a general election sooner rather than letter if he wins big in Nevada and secures a strong first or second place finish in South Carolina.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November
They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.
New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.
Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.
While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.
Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.
With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.
The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
