DES MOINES, Iowa — A recent Des Moines Register poll shows Hillary Clinton has the support of 57-percent likely Democratic caucus goers, but numbers are increasing for one of her Democratic opponents.
Sixteen-percent of the poll takers supported Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders as their first choice. That’s up five-percent since January.
While campaigning in Marshalltown, Sanders said while Clinton touched on some important issues in Sioux City, she forgot to mention what he calls the billionaire class that is destroying the middle class.
”I request to her, that she speak out on this Trans Pacific Partnership. It was defeated on Friday in the House. Corporate America and Wall Street will be bringing it up again next week. I really urge her to speak out in opposition to a continuation of disastrous trade policies, which have allowed corporations to shut down America,” said Sanders.
Sanders has campaign events scheduled in Waterloo, Iowa Falls, and Indianola Sunday.
