Guess which Democratic candidate leads among New Hampshire college students
A new poll among Democratic and Democratic-leaning college students in New Hampshire shows Sen. Bernie Sanders in the lead by nine points.
Sanders, the only self-described Democratic Socialist in the race to take on President Donald Trump in November, has the support of 35 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning New Hampshire college students, according to the Chegg-College Pulse Election Tracker.
Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg trails Sanders with 26 percent support. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is the most popular with 11 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning college students in the Granite State, while businessman Andrew Yang, popular for his Universal Basic Income proposal, and former Vice President Joe Biden each hold nine percent support.
The leading two candidates among Democratic and Democratic-leaning college students in New Hampshire are the same presidential hopefuls who likely finished first and second in the Iowa caucuses, although results have not yet been finalized, even a week after the electoral process.
Sanders also led among Democratic and Democratic-leaning college students in Iowa in the same Chegg-College Pulse poll.

I recall William F. Buckley and George McGovern debating issues (on Firing Line?) before the 1972 election. They had a small audience of college students. The results of a recent poll in which McGovern was leading with undergraduate college students came up. WFB replied that it was not surprising that McGovern was leading with the “incompletely educated.” Times sure have changed, because the students all laughed heartily, as did McGovern.
Of course he does well with college students. They don’t have jobs, are working on unemployable degrees, he is promising to wipe out their student loan debt and promises that the government will make all future life decisions for them. What more could a millennial ask for?
