According to the poll of 370 likely Democratic voters, 42 per cent said they would like to see Bernie Sanders become the Democratic nominee for president.

A staggering 78 per cent of respondents said they held a favorable opinion of Sanders, while just 12 per cent said they viewed him unfavorably.
