This is a snapshot, and it's important to remember trendlines. It's clear we Bernie supporters are making inroads and closing the gap, with national polling aggregates having us only down by 8-12 points to Clinton: http://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/election-2016/national-primary-polls/democratic/ http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2016/president/us/2016_democratic_presidential_nomination-3824.html http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/pollster/2016-national-democratic-primary And beyond that, remember that Bernie has always received more votes than pollsters predict. In his 2006 Senate election, he surpassed the polls by 12 points, in Iowa he did 4 points better, and in New Hampshire 8%. I think a lot of these states are going to be a lot closer than people think they will be.
Strange, the Quinnipiac Poll from Colorado yesterday clearly shows Bernie Sanders doing 5 points BETTER than Clinton against Republicans http://www.quinnipiac.edu/news-and-events/quinnipiac-university-poll/colorado/release-detail?ReleaseID=2303 Perhaps this PPP poll oversampled older voters and landlines.
