Before I begin…..the big news of the day is that there is a large snowstorm heading for the East Coast…..before you break into a panic…..let me say one thing…..It is WINTER you dummy! Get over it!
I recall the early days….by that I mean last year or so…..when the Dems were making nice with each other…..the two leaders said that they would not run a negative campaign…..a fine gesture……
Hillary has been in the lead with the exception of New Hampshire and she was polite and well…..nice.
But that has changed……she is not doing well in New Hampshire and now she is behind in Iowa…….
Things have gone “from bad to nightmare” for Hillary Clinton thanks to a new CNN/WMUR poll out of New Hampshire, per the Washington Post. The poll—which quizzed 927 of the state’s likely Democrats from Jan. 13 to 18—shows Bernie Sanders has expanded a solid lead in early December by 10 points to an insane 27-point lead with a 4.8-point margin of error. Another good sign for Sanders: About 52% of voters say they’ve decided who will get their vote in the primary. The only downside for the Vermont senator is that his support “rests heavily on groups whose participation in New Hampshire primaries is less reliable—notably younger voters and those who aren’t registered Democrats,” reports CNN.
Clinton trails by 45 points among undeclared voters, but just nine points among registered Democrats, though she led Sanders by 7 points in the latter category in December. Sanders is also enjoying a 91% favorability rating—”which is basically where Michael Jordan’s favorability ratings would have been in Chicago in 1993,” quips the Post. Clinton—who was described by 55% of respondents as the “least honest” Democratic candidate—sits at 65%. However, Clinton does show an advantage nationally with minorities and voters over 50, per Time. She leads Sanders by 15 points among Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters in a Monmouth University poll released Tuesday, with a 5.2% margin of error.
All the nice sentiments are eroding away……now that Hil is losing to Bernie the gloves have come off…..she and her surrogates are playing the one card I have been waiting for…..the socialist card.
The GOP has been nothing but negativity I expected better from the Dems…..but after thinking back to the 2008 primaries I realized that she does that when she feels her grasp of eventual power slipping….
Recently Bernie made a statement about Hillary as part of the “establishment” and their money……she immediately took offense and used Planned Parenthood as an example of the “establishment”……but I hate to pee on her parade but her examples are shoving money at her in the thousands and probably millions…..
She will do what she needs to do to destroy her competition….that includes lame name calling and the fear tactic……the GOP should be proud of her tactics…..
I may be a Bernie supporter….but they all have a “group think” mentality…..basically they are ALL on the same page on many issues……
I am not pleased that the Dems are all on the same page when it comes to foreign policy…….but then expected nothing different…….
