Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders would beat U.S. President Donald Trump by 35 points among American Jewish voters according to a new poll from Garin-Hart-Yang Research Associates for the non-partisan Jewish Electorate Institute (JEI).
The survey, published Friday, finds Sanders beating Trump 65-30 percent among the 1,001 American Jews polled. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former Vice President Joe Biden beat Trump 67-28 percent in the poll.
Sanders is leading in the April 28 New York state Democratic primary according to a new Siena Institute poll released this week. While he is leading the state with 25 percent of the vote compared to Bloomberg’s 21 percent and former Vice President Joe Biden’s 13 percent, Sanders is losing the Jewish vote with only six percent of support.
