Bloomberg shares polling with Dems showing Sanders would jeopardize House majority © Getty Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloombergs campaign says it has been sharing internal polling data with vulnerable House Democrats about how nominating Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) would jeopardize their majority.
The Bloomberg campaign polled voter sentiments in the 42 districts where members are in the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committees (DCCC) Frontline program that defends incumbents in tough reelection bids.
According to Bloomberg campaign manager Kevin Sheekey, the poll found Trumps favorability at 47 percent positive and 49 percent negative, against 38 percent positive and 53 percent negative for Sanders.
About half of voters, 47 percent, said the increased role of socialist ideas in the Democratic Party is a bad thing, compared to only 19 percent who described it as a good thing.
And the poll found that a plurality of voters, 39 percent, said they would be less likely to vote for a House Democrat if Sanders is the nominee, compared to 34 percent who said it would have no impact and 21 percent who said theyd be more likely to vote for Democrats.
Overall, Trump has a narrow 48 to 47 percent lead over Sanders in the 42 swing districts. Trumps lead grows to 6 points when voters are read an attack line about how Bernie Sanders is a socialist who supports un-American, big government plans that will spend trillions of dollars, lead to higher taxes, and destroy our way of life.
Sanders is less popular than Trump, loses significant support when attacked for his socialist positions, and will negatively impact these vulnerable Democrats if he heads the top of the Democratic ticket, Sheekey wrote.
The Sanders campaign did not respond to a request for comment

The best polls money can buy!
Go Bernie, Go!
We need to help Bernie get the nomination so he can help us win the House back.
Establishment Democrats dont want Bernie.
Note you don’t here how the House will go if HE’S the candidate.
His team would probably lie, but we all need to make taking over the House happen whoever the democrap candidate is.
Uh, as if that’s a bad thing?
DCCC is harping on healthcare healthcare healthcare and Bernie is going to offer free free free.
They are vulnerable but this is the inflection point and Republicans and Trump need a real good answer, because people have been beaten up so bad by Obamacare they’re likely to go for anything that looks like an improvement.
Tooooo late! Democrats are the Commie Party
But my sociology degree low cost student loan balance is keeping me from s good enough credit score to buy a used car or get s house! Bernie will fix that which I have done. All bad decisions should have bailouts from senile old Marxists who couldn’t keep their utilities on for two consecutive months.
Here’s an example straight from twitter this morning:
LOL THEY’RE FU**ED EITHER WAY!!
Virtually all Republicans should re-register as Democrats and vote in the primary for Bernie...to help the guy win.
Given we're in a corporatist system they don't want to lose everything they have. They might recognize they've gone to far pushing socialism. The reason they've done this is because they recognize corporatism and socialism are on the face identical other then who controls the levers.
Our schools will have to start to back pedal on their socialist crusade
$$$ Bloomberg $$$ poll gets desired $$$ Bloomberg $$$ results.
The mask is off. The RAT party has exposed themselves for what they REALLY are.
Oh, I hope so! Our Democrat representative is such a zero. I can’t stand her.
I completely agree. Any of this current circle jerk DemonRat ShitShow cast for president damages the downballot candidates.
Already we’ve seen evidence of incumbent Rats ‘distancing’ themselves from the presidential election. That never works, but they have to try.
