Fifty-two percent of Democrats surveyed in the latest Harvard-Harris poll want the party to move further to the left and "oppose current Democratic leaders," according to a report in The Washington Free Beacon.

Sixty-nine percent of millennials (ages 18-34) said they were in favor of the party embracing progressive policies, as well as 55 percent of women, 65 percent of Hispanics, and 55 percent of African-Americans.

Only 29 percent, though, said a more liberal Democratic party would help Democrats win elections.

The poll also showed a dip in President Donald Trump's approval rating to 42 percent and an increase in favorability of Sen. Bernie Sanders, a registered Independent.

Sanders' total favorability is 53 percent, and is highest among Hispanics (66 percent) and African Americans (77 percent). Sanders, according to several polls, is the most popular politician in the country. The Vermont lawmaker has pushed for Medicare For All as Republicans fight to repeal and replace Obamacare.

The Harvard-Harris poll was conducted Oct. 14-18 among 2,159 registered voters.
