According to NYT, Sanders currently has 47% of the vote, 23% ahead of Biden.
His triumph in Nevada after strong performances in Iowa and New Hampshire will give impetus for performances next Saturday in South Carolina.
Sanders, speaking to jubilant supporters in San Antonio, said: “We have just assembled a multi-racial and multi-generational coalition that will not only triumph in Nevada, but also sweep the country.”
According to the British television and radio company BBC, Edison Research said that more than half of the Hispanics who took part in the vote decided to vote for Sanders before the meeting. In Nevada, Hispanics make up one third of the population.
Surveys also show that the politician has support in all age groups – with the exception of people over 65. It is especially popular with young voters in Nevada and among white women with higher education.
