Support for Sanders explodes in Texas

Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has achieved a big leap in Texas, according to a poll of likely Democratic primary voters.

The University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll, conducted from the end of October until November 8 showed that Bernie Sanders was the first choice among 30 per cent of voters.

That’s up from 15 per cent in an earlier poll conducted by the same firm in June. Clinton’s lead has shrunk by almost 7 per cent since that same time.
