Poll: Has Sanders support increased, remained the same, or decreased since '16 [View all]

This is inspired by NewJeffCT's thread "I believe Sanders will win the nomination in 2020". He says he has not detected a huge drop off in support for Bernie Sanders.

Do you agree?

ETA: This poll is about the primaries, not the GE.
