The Bernie Sanders campaign continues to receive good news from the early Wisconsin polls. A new Public Policy poll shows Sanders with a 6 percentage point lead over Hillary Clinton.
The poll is in line with a Marquette poll conducted within the last week that showed Sanders with a 4 percentage point lead. Sanders is hoping for a victory in Wisconsin and other upcoming primaries to help him cut into Clinton’s delegate lead.
Early polls are not an exact science and there have been examples in the nomination process of wide discrepancies in the results. For the most part, the early polling numbers have been similar to the results of the Democratic primaries.
Here’s a look at the latest Wisconsin Democratic polls.
