NEW YORK — A poll taken after the New Hampshire primary shows that influential Democrats believe no presidential candidate is likely to go to the Democratic convention with a clear majority of delegates, Newsweek said Saturday.
Eighty-six percent of respondents said the Democratic convention, scheduled for July 18 to 21 in Atlanta, may be brokered. Sixty-three percent think this is "somewhat likely" and 23% think it is "very likely."
Poll respondents included 44 members of Congress, 125 governors and other state officials, 22 state and Democratic National Committee members and others.
Sixty-seven percent said the Democratic nominee has a "good" or "excellent" chance of winning the November presidential election in their states.
