Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are competing for 86 pledged delegates in today’s Wisconsin Democratic presidential primary.
Sanders is the favorite in today’s primary, polling ahead of Clinton in recent statewide polls. An Emerson poll released on Monday shows him leading the former Secretary of State by 8 points.
Sanders’ campaign is counting on a win in Wisconsin to build momentum going into the New York primary, and to close Clinton’s pledged delegate lead.
Wisconsin holds an open primary, which means anyone can participate in the Democratic primary, regardless of their party registration. Wisconsin also has same-day voter registration, which means first-time voters can participate in today’s primary, even if they have never registered before.
