Sanders behind among Democratic insiders in home state

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Bernie Sanders does not appear to be winning favorite son status among Democratic insiders in his home state.

An Associated Press survey of superdelegates to next year's Democratic National Convention finds three of Vermont's 10 committed to Hillary Clinton. Two, including Sanders, are in the Sanders column and four are uncommitted.

Former Gov. Howard Dean, also a superdelegate, did not respond to the survey, but has repeatedly endorsed Clinton.

Two say they'll wait until voters have spoken in Vermont's March 1 presidential primary before endorsing a candidate.

Sanders is expected to do well in the Vermont primary, given his longtime popularity among state voters. He got 71 percent when he last ran for re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2012, after getting about 65 percent in 2006.
