From the second primary state – Trump seems to have won the race, while Sanders might take the Democratic vote. On Monday Iowa is just six weeks away, on Tuesday New Hampshire is seven weeks away.
A Boston Herald/Franklin Pierce poll in New Hampshire finds Donald Trump leads the GOP presidential race with 26%, followed by Marco Rubio at 12%, Ted Cruz at 12%, Chris Christie at 11%, Jeb Bush at 10% and John Kasich at 8%.
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders barely leads Hillary Clinton in the Democratic race, 48% to 46%.
Another stunning national poll.. Sanders is just 7 points behind… and Hillary’s trajectory is in free-fall….
The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday morning found Clinton with 42 percent support nationally, compared to Sanders’s 35 percent.
If Vice President Joe Biden does not run, pollsters found, Clinton’s lead over Sanders rises to 15 points. Biden had 17 percent support in the survey.
Clinton held a 34-point lead over Sanders in July, and a 60-point lead in June.
This is stunning.. Sanders is 10 ahead in Iowa, 22 ahead in NH..
And “only” 23 behind in SC.. where Hillary had plus 60-70, just a couple of months ago…
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) is up by double-digits on former secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire, according to a poll released by CBS News on Sunday.
The senator is drawing 43 percent support in the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucus, besting Clinton by 10 points.
Sanders is also drawing 52 percent support in New Hampshire, almost doubling Clinton, who sits at 30 percent support in the Granite State.
Clinton, however, doubles-up Sanders in South Carolina, drawing 46 percent compared to the senator’s 23 percent.
Every week, he’s taken more seriously.. and from the clip.. “stranger things have happened”..
It’s still 6 months until the primaries.. Sanders can surge further..
Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton always insisted she wasn’t expecting a coronation in her second presidential bid, but a single-digit lead over Bernie Sanders was surely not what she had in mind.
It’s now clear that Clinton, despite a raft of political advantages that make her the envy of rivals from both parties, faces a stubborn obstacle in her quest to win the Democratic nomination.
She must weather the summer of Sanders.
Seems like the President has fallen in line with the signature phrase of Bernie Sanders – “can’t afford tax cuts for Millionaires and Billionaires.”
Here’s from the opening parts of the nine-hour speech in December 2010.
Signature soundbite at 3:35.
His one-man filibuster is a long, solid lecture on inequality and transfer of wealth. The numbers are staggering.
Senator Sanders – blocking the floor.
From 2:30 – I will do whatever I can to stop this.
