    Poll: Sanders leads the field, Bloomberg qualifies for his first debate

    The survey by NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist gives the former New York mayor enough polls showing him over 10% nationally to be on stage for the next Democratic debate Wednesday in Nevada.


    The new nationwide poll showed a massive surge of support for Bloomberg — a whopping +15% since December — in a sign that his unprecedented $417 million advertising spend may be beginning to bear fruit. Bernie Sanders also showed increased support, gaining 9% since the December poll and giving the candidate a double-digit lead over his second place challenger.

    “We’re headed to Nevada! Our campaign is seeing a groundswell of support across the country, and qualifying for the February 19 debate is the latest sign that Mike Bloomberg's plan and ability to defeat Donald Trump is resonating with more and more Americans,” Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheeky said in a statement on Twitter.

    Supporters of Joe Biden will likely hang their hats on numbers from a hypothetical matchup against President Trump that showed the candidate having the best odds of beating the incumbent in November — a +6% advantage versus only a +3% advantage for Bernie Sanders.

    All Democratic candidates polled higher than the president, according to the poll.
