Sanders ahead of Biden in PENNSYLVANIA. Yes, really.
A new University of Wisconsin-Madison poll shows Sen. Bernie Sanders beating former Vice President Joe Biden in Pennsylvania, of all places - underlining the once-Democratic-frontrunner's weakness in a still-packed field.
Shockingly, the poll has Sanders at 25 percent in the Keystone State, and Biden with a mere 20 percent.
The margin of error in the poll is not entirely clear - it's either 3 or 4 percent (the poll was conducted along with others in Wisconsin and Michigan). In both of these other states, Sanders' lead is far greater: 25 percent to 16 percent in Michigan and 30 percent to 13 percent in Wisconsin.
The poll also shows Sanders performing marginally better than Biden against Trump in Pennsylvania in a hypothetical general election matchup. Sanders bests Trump by two points, 47 percent to 45 percent. Biden bests Trump by one point, 46 percent to 45 percent.
If Biden wins in South Carolina on Saturday and gets a bump from the result, these numbers could of course change. And they're clearly within the margin of error. But this shows just how far Biden has fallen, even in a supposedly safe state for him.
