College Pulse CEO Terren Klein said in a Friday interview with Hill.TV that Sanders remains the top choice among college students overall, but emphasized that Warren really speaks to Democratic college voters.

“When you look at the Democratic electorate overall, Bernie is in the lead but Elizabeth Warren really speaks to the strong Democrats,” he said.

Klein pushed back on the notion that college students are apathetic toward presidential elections, insisting that data suggests otherwise.

“This demographic has seen the largest increase of any other age group in the U.S. in voter turnout,” he told Hill.TV. He said turnout has increased more than 80 percent over the past four years.

Chegg surveyed 1,500 college students nationwide on Thursday night. The margin of error for the full sample was plus or minus 2.9 percentage points.
