A Morning Consult poll released this week shows Bernie Sanders with an astonishing 49 point lead among Gen Z voters nationally.

Overall, Sanders leads nationally among likely Democratic primary voters, with 32 percent of the vote. Joe Biden and Michael Bloomberg follow with 19 percent and 18 percent support respectively.

Sanders’ lead is strongest with Gen Z voters, winning an incredible 59 percent support with the group. Michael Bloomberg and Elizabeth Warren came in very distant equal seconds with just 10 percent support each.

Gen Z voters are aged between 18 and 22 years old.

Sanders also holds a dominant lead among millennial voters, winning a 49 percent share of support with the group. Former vice president Joe Biden wins just 13 percent support, while Bloomberg and Warren are tied for third on 12 percent.

Among Gen X voters, aged between 39 and 54, Sanders also finishes first with 31 percent support. Biden comes in second on 19 percent, followed by Bloomberg on 18 percent.

The only age group Sanders does not lead is Boomer voters, where his deficit is just three points. Joe Biden leads among voters aged 55 to 73, with 23 percent support. Bloomberg comes in second on 22 percent, with Sanders on 20 percent.

The survey of more than 13,000 Democratic primary voters was conducted between February 23 and 27.
