Bernie Sanders Beats Donald Trump and Democrats on Character and Empathy in New Poll

The Washington Post reported the Vermont Indepedent saying: “Mayor Bloomberg, with all his money, will not create the kind of excitement and energy we need to have the voter turnout we must have to defeat Donald Trump.

“We will not create the energy and excitement we need to defeat Donald Trump if that candidate pursued, advocated for, and enacted, racist policies like stop-and-frisk, which caused communities of color in his city to live in fear.”

Newsweek has contacted the Bloomberg 2020 campaign for comment, and will update this article with any response.

Elsewhere in the latest USA Today/Ipsos poll, just under four in ten (39 percent) of voters told pollsters that Sanders shared their values, putting him nine points ahead of Biden and Buttigieg.

Thirty-one percent of the surveyed adults said they shared values with Trump and Warren, with just 28 percent saying the same of Bloomberg.

On the issue of empathy, pollsters asked suburban women whether they believed 2020 candidates cared about them. The constituency touted as a key voting group reportedly gave Sanders their best rating, with 47 percent agreeing that he cared “about people like me.”

The USA Today/Ipsos poll surveyed 1,005 adults between February 12 and February 13, and did not include Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar among candidates. It has a 3.5 point margin of error.
