Sanders Clinton Nevada Poll February 2016 Democrats

We are just a few days away from the Nevada Democratic Caucus and the race is without any shadow a doubt heating up. Polls from 2015 showed Clinton with a massive lead, however, a recent survey conducted by Targetpoint shows the two in a dead heat at 45-45%. Compare this to a Gravis poll in December showing Clinton with a 23 point lead.

Another victory for Sanders would without doubt spread worry in the Clinton camp. Hitherto the ex First Lady and Secretary of State has been leading in polls, especially with black and Hispanic voters, while Sanders Draws his support mainly from young white voters. However there is certain evidence that the senator from Vermont may be making inroads into this demographic.

Many ethnic minority voters didn`t know much about Sanders at the beginning of the campaign but after his resounding victory in New Hampshire his profile has definitely been boosted.

Sanders supports a path to citizenship for undocumented migrants and will without doubt look to attack Clinton on this issue, after in 2015 she declared that unaccompanied minors from Central America should be returned to their countries.

In a recent debate Sanders highlighted his wish to "bring families together and not divide them up" and said that he would use executive orders if congress "doesn`t do the right thing".

Clinton said she was "against the raids" and "inhumane treatment" in the immigration system, instead saying "we should be deporting criminals not hardworking immigrant families". She made it clear that she was also in favor of a path to citizenship for undocumented migrants and said her comments about immigrant minors were in order to dissuade their families from sending them on the dangerous trek through Central America.
