Support for Senator Bernie Sanders is at its highest yet, with the independent from Vermont making significant gains in the latest national poll.
Polling conducted by Fox News between 11-13 August put Sanders at 30 per cent, while Clinton fell to 49 per cent. The question asked was who you would like to see as the Democratic presidential nominee.
The 8 per cent gain for Sanders since the last Fox News poll, taken only two weeks ago is great news for the campaign. Sanders was polling at just 3 per cent nationally at the end of March.
This, after polling in New Hampshire put Sanders ahead of the former Secretary of State, and a straw poll conducted in Iowa that also firmly put Sanders in the lead.
