Seventeen percent of those polled said they would be enthusiastic about a Sanders ticket, while 39% stated that they would be satisfied.
"Clinton continues to be the odds-on favorite for the Democratic nomination, but Democrats don't have a particularly strong attachment to seeing her become their nominee," Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute, said in a statement.
While Clinton has the super PACs and the name recognition, Sanders has been gaining enthusiasm and favorability points as more people learn about who he is. Meanwhile, Clinton’s favorability rating has been on the decline.
In New Hampshire, Sanders is polling within six points of Clinton — considered a statistical tie due to margin of error.
As Sanders continues to call out the oligarchy and refuse big-money donations, his populist message is soaring. It may be time for Clinton to start getting nervous.
