Bernie Sanders asks Russia to keep out of US Presidential Election in 2020, Leads in All National Polls, California, & Nevada Caucuses
February 22 , 2020
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, the frontrunner in the 2020 US Democratic Presidential Primary, has told media in California’s Bakersfield that he has come to know from the intelligence community that the Russians are trying to help his presidential campaign, thereby intensifying concerns about the alleged rerun of the Kremlin’s role in the 2020 US Presidential election. Bernie took a strong stand and expressed his opposition to any kind of Russian interference in the election. While talking to the media, he said: “And what I say to Mr. Putin, if elected president, trust me you are not going to be interfering in American elections.” However, it is still not reportedly clear in which way Russia is trying to aid Bernie Sanders’ campaign. The average of all the national polls shows that Senator Bernie Sanders is ahead of his fellow Democratic presidential candidates by 11.4 percentage points. This is supposedly the first time that all the national polls have projected Sanders as the preferred US Presidential candidate in the Democratic Primaries. As per a new poll released by the University of Massachusetts Lowell on Friday Sanders is maintaining an 8-point lead over his nearest Democratic contender Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren in California. The primary will be held in California on March 3, 2020 (Tuesday). While Sanders has received support from 24% of likely primary voters in the poll, Warren has received 16% support. Former Vice President Joe Biden, former South Bend (Indiana) Mayor Pete Buttigieg, and former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg received 13%, 12%, and 12% support respectively. The young and Hispanic voters are the main strength of Bernie in California. With the Nevada caucus scheduled to take place on Saturday (February 22, 2020), recent polls predict a comfortable win for Sanders.
