First, it seems that Bernie Sanders is leading Hillary Clinton in Iowa:
As I predicted people find Sanders more trustworthy.
That combined with the news from New Hampshire makes me seriously wonder if Hillary has any chance of getting the nomination. According to CBS News,
Bernie Sanders now leads Hillary Clinton by 14 points in New Hampshire, according to the latest Monmouth University Poll of likely New Hampshire voters who are likely to vote in the first-in-the-nation primary in February.
Fifty-three percent of these voters choose Sanders, compared to 39 percent for Clinton. And the new poll shows that Clinton has also lost her edge over Sanders among registered Democrats, women and older voters. Sanders has now surpassed her with these voters, while holding onto his lead among registered independents, men and younger voters.
Now, this may be nothing since other polls say different things. But it makes me wonder.
Sanders (50 percent) now leads Clinton (44 percent) among women voters, and he’s holding his lead among men, 57 percent – 32 percent, similar to previous months. And voters under the age of 50 prefer Sanders, 58 percent – 30 percent. Older voters said in this survey they would support Sanders over Clinton by 50 percent to 44 percent. Two months ago, Clinton led this group 56 percent – 38 percent.
Hillary can’t even win with women?
I wrote yesterday of Hillary’s use of the gun control issue against Sanders. Here is even more evidence that it won’t work:
The top issue for these Democrats is the economy and jobs (29 percent), followed by national security and terrorism (14 percent).
You will notice that gun control is not a major concern. Hillary is going to need some other way to win over voters.
