Learn How Ithaca Hummus Makes Its Magic

Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders threw his hat into the ring on Thursday, hoping to unseat presumptive favorite Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State and N.Y. Senator.

Former Senator Jim Webb and former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley are also expected to run.

So, at this early date, who do you support?

Take our poll below:

Tompkins County has a well-known progressive bent, and recently supported insurgent candidate Zephyr Teachout over Gov. Andrew Cuomo last fall.

It’ll be interesting to see if there are similar results locally in a match-up between the populist Sanders and Clinton, who is considered the establishment favorite.

And, don’t worry conservative readers: We’ll be holding a poll on the Republican primary soon.
