Strong Majority of Democratic Voters Agree: Sanders Should Fight to the End

Just as the Vermont senator is promising to take his candidacy all the way to the Democratic convention in Philadelphia in July—and contest the delegate allocation if necessary—voters around the country are expressing just how much they believe in him and what his candidacy represents.

A full 89 percent of Sanders supporters say they would like to see him stay in the race until July, with 57 percent of Democrats and Democrat-leaning voters agreeing, according to the NBC News/SurveyMonkey survey released Tuesday.
