A new weekly poll shows Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) remains the top choice among college students, despite being hospitalized last week due to a heart attack.
According to a Chegg-College Pulse poll released on Thursday, 31 percent of Democratic voters attending college or university support Sanders, a 2-point increase from August and a one-point increase from the week prior to his heart attack.
Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass) placed second with 28 percent support, while entrepreneur Andrew Yang held onto third place for the third consecutive week in a row with 10 percent support.
