Bernie Sanders has called for US authorities to change the energy system and not build more pipelines at a Dakota Access protest outside the White House. He added that the rally raises an issue that is getting more support across the US. After Sanders statement on August 25 that he opposes Dakota access pipeline he is more popular than ever. In the latest edition of Morning Consult’s Senator Approval Rankings, Bernie Sanders is more popular than ever. No other 2016 candidate loves citing polls as much as Donald Trump, but Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders might be a close second.“You know, in virtually all of the general election match-up polls between Trump and Secretary Clinton and Trump and Bernie Sanders, in almost all of those polls, I do better than Secretary Clinton,” Sanders said in a debate in late April. But if we look at the latest results show us that he is still standing strong in every poll!
In an election year that’s produced a slate of notably unpopular frontrunners in both parties, Sanders stands out for his positive image. His average 48 percent favorability rating, by far the highest among the remaining candidates,while he was still in the race now he is by far more popular than late July with an army of supporters waiting for him to be back in the race!It’s undeniably to Sanders’ advantage that he’s a fresh face, especially in a year brimming with anti-establishment energy. In a recent Fox News poll, 70 percent of voters said Sanders had the integrity to serve effectively as president, while just 48 percent said the same of Clinton.
The progressive independent who gave Hillary Clinton a major headache in the presidential primary has an 87 percent approval rating in his home state. That’s a sizable jump from his already high 80 percent approval rating in April when Morning Consult compiled favorability ratings collected throughout the beginning of the year.
Based on interviews with almost 72,000 registered voters since May, Morning Consult crunched how constituents feel about their home-state senators. Sanders maintains his spot at the top of the list for most popular senator, a distinction that appears long lasting. He was at 83 percent approval last year, and no other senator had a higher rating. On a national level, his popularity is getting even bigger!
