The youth vote has plenty of time to shift though, as 20 percent of the likely voters said they remain undecided.

“Proving that young voters see more than age, it’s notable that the candidates with the most experience in government service are leading a diverse field at this early stage in the process,” John Della Volpe, director of polling for the Institute of Politics, said in a statement.

“Compared to this point in the last presidential cycle, young Democratic voters are more engaged and likely to have an even greater impact in choosing their party’s nominee,” he added.

Sanders’s support among young voters has consistently placed him near the top of national and early state vote polls. 

The Institute for Politics surveyed 934 likely voters nationwide from March 8 to 20. The margin of error for the sample is 4.5 percentage points.
