Key Findings

  • Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar has an apparent lead in her home state over her closest rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. 
  • The biggest dynamic in the race can be seen by age.  Klobuchar leads among those 45 and older with 30% of the vote but is taking only 17% of the 18-44 year old vote. Predictably, the youth vote continues to propel Sanders.
