Bernie Sanders has drawn large crowds and some protestors on a recent west coast campaign swing.

It's been quite a week for Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign. A new poll shows him leading Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire and he drew over 70,000 supporters at events on the west coast.

But he also had a rally disrupted by protesters questioning him on racial inequality. So while Bernie has  surged lately, how well will he do when voters go to the polls? And what happens if Vice President Joe Biden and former Vice President Al Gore enter the race?  

We take a close look at the Sanders campaign with Norwich University Political Science Professor Megan Remmel and retired Middlebury College Political Science Professor Eric Davis.
