A new Chegg-College Pulse poll shows support for Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign is at its highest point since April.

According to the poll, the Vermont independent senator tops the poll by seven percentage points over Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass:

  • Sanders: 29% of likely Democratic college students;
  • Warren: 22%;
  • Former Vice President Joe Biden: 10%;
  • Mayor Pete Buttigieg: 9%;
  • Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., 6%;
  • Andrew Yang, 5%.

None of the other Democratic candidates polled at over 1% in the poll, for Chegg polled more than 1,500 college students nationwide from Aug. 13-14.   

College Pulse CEO Terren Klein told Hill.TV that voter participation has climbed by as much as 80% from 2014-2018, and college students are likely to pay a decisive poll in the 2020 presidential election. 

Most students care more about issues like the environment than they do about a candidate's electability, said Klein, and "if you’re trying to connect with college students, you should really be focusing on what issues are important to them."
