AP-GfK Poll: Voters increasingly see Sanders as electable

Posted:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

The more Democrats learn about Bernie Sanders, the more they appear to like him.

A greater share of Democratic registered voters views the Vermont senator as likable, honest, competent and compassionate than just two months ago. That's according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Seventy-two percent now believe he could win the general election, an increase of 21 points since December.

The findings underscore the challenge facing Hillary Clinton as she enters a spring stretch when primaries across the country give many of the party's voters will a say on her candidacy.

While Clinton continues to be the Democratic candidate who's most well-liked within her own party, Sanders is gaining on her.
