Bloomberg Politics Pollster Ann Selzer: Bernie Sanders Has the Obama Coalition

‘She does very well with older voters, Bernie Sanders does very well with younger voters, he kind of has that Obama coalition’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 
DICKERSON: "Swimming swrks switching over to the democratic side, also close between person with any Sanders and Hillary Clinton. What do you see in the numbers that is interesting to you?"
SELZER: "What is interesting to me is that a, that is a three-point race right now but Hillary Clinton’s numbers show kind of an undergirding of strength, she is a very strong number, 83 percent of her supporters who say they are locked in. Her issue, and this is kind of a good thing, bad thing, she is a, she does very well with older voters, Bernie Sanders does very well with younger voters, he kind of has that Obama coalition, the first timers, people who consider themselves independent rather than Democrat, and the youth vote, those are all less reliable but he has a enthusiasm going for him that if he can get those people out on caucus night we can see a surprise in those rooms."
DICKERSON: "All right, Ann Selzer with the wonderful Des Moines register Bloomberg poll, thanks so much for being with us and giving us all of those insights. We will be right back with more politics."
