Stephen Colbert Explains Why Bernie Sanders Is Rocking Rallies All Over the Country
Last week, the new CBS/YouGov poll found U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders with 52 percent support among Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, while former frontrunner Hillary Clinton received 30 percent. And, in Iowa, new polling released Sept. 10 puts Sanders ahead of Clinton for the first time, marking his continued and growing popularity among voters in the lead-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
