I sometimes wonder if I’m living in an episode of the Twilight Zone.
I mean, how else am I to explain that the two most likely candidates to be nominated from the Democrat Party are Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders? One is an obvious criminal, failed Secretary of State, who has a history of protecting sexual deviants from the law, and the other is an avowed socialist who routinely rails against capitalism and prosperity. Is this what has become of the Democrat Party? The Party of Thomas Jefferson has forgotten it’s roots and turned away from our Constitution, from our God, and from our people and has instead embraced corruption, greed and godless immorality.
Apparently, even the far-left Hillary Clinton is now too much of a “centrist” for the average Democrat voter in Iowa or New Hampshire (or maybe they just don’t want to vote for a criminal).
The Iowa Democratic Caucus is going down to the wire as Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders wins the support of 49 percent of likely Democratic Caucus participants, with 44 percent for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and 4 percent for former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
Peter Brown is the assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, and he said that the results indicate that most Iowa Democrats believe Senator Sanders to be a better “fit” for them. “Sen. Sanders’ surge seems based on the perception by Iowa Democrats that he is a better fit for Iowans. They see him, by solid double digit margins as more sharing their values, more honest and trustworthy and viewed more favorably overall than is Secretary Clinton.”
Things are even worse, far worse, for Clinton in New Hampshire where it is beginning to seem that she doesn’t stand a chance at competing for the state.
Bernie Sanders has opened up a 14 point lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, according to the latest Monmouth University Poll of Granite State voters likely to participate in February’s Democratic primary…
Currently, Sanders holds a 53% to 39% lead over Clinton in the Granite State’s first in-the-nation primary. Clinton actually led by 48% to 45% in November, but Sanders had the advantage in September – a 43% to 36% lead in a multi-candidate field. O’Malley currently has 5% support, which is basically unchanged from prior polls.
We can expect the Clinton camp voices to issue the usual “calm down, we’re fine” rhetoric in the coming days, but I’d guess that Mrs. Clinton and her team are starting to get nervous about the polling trends they’re seeing. Clinton is still losing nationally to several GOP candidates (Trump, Cruz and Rubio), which is a sure sign of trouble, but worse still is that Clinton can’t put away her competition for the Democrat nomination, even though he’s not even a Democrat! I’m not sure the Democrat Party could have picked a worse candidate than Hillary Clinton if they would have randomly picked a name out of a phone book…
