The DNC, which was once the most powerful organization in Washington, is now in turmoil as Bernie Sanders is surging to a stunning upset.
The party was founded by a Democrat in the late 1800s and was reorganized in 1918 after World War II, when the Democrats won two consecutive elections.
In 2018, Sanders beat the Democrats’ front-runner, Hillary Clinton, in a primary election.
The results were announced Tuesday, the same day Sanders secured the nomination.
The DNC, as is tradition, will hold a convention on June 14.
The latest polls have Clinton and Sanders at 46 percent each.
But a CNN/ORC International poll released Wednesday shows Sanders at 42 percent.
Trump’s support has dipped as the primaries have progressed, and he has dropped his support among independents, according to a CNN poll released Tuesday.
The survey found Trump’s support had dropped to just 23 percent in the latest CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey, the lowest it had been in months.
Trump, a billionaire real estate developer and former reality TV star, has seen his support slide in the wake of a series of controversial comments.
