Senator Bernie Sanders is quickly gaining popularity in California, while Clinton’s lead among voters is slipping.

Support for the independent Senator from Vermont has grown considerably over the year, currently at 35 per cent among likely Democratic primary voters.

Meanwhile, support for Clinton has dropped from 73 per cent in February to 47 per cent at the moment, according to a survey by Field Research of San Francisco.

When the possibly of a Joe Biden candidacy is factored in, Sanders edges within nine points of Clinton.

One of Sanders’ largest rallies was in Los Angeles, where it is estimated more than 27,000 people packed the Memorial Sports Arena and flooded onto the streets, just to hear Sanders speak.
