Quinnipiac University Poll: Hillary Clinton Now Bearly Ahead of Bernie Sanders & in National Poll, 44% to 42%

HILLARY CLINTON FEELS THE BERN, THE SOCIALIST SANDERS HAS CAUGHT HILLARY IN THE LATEST QUINNIPIAC POLL …

According to the latest national Quinnipiac poll tracking poll, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders are now in a statistical dead heat. Hillary Clinton garners 44% of the vote, Bernie Sanders 42%, while 11% remains undecided. You can rest assure that of that undecided vote, Hillary will get little to none as she is the most none and recognizable, establishment candidate for the Democrats. This is an amazing set of circumstances as Sanders has erased a 52 point Clinton lead from previous Quinnipiac poll from April 2015. Whats devastating to Clinton is her overall favorable/unfavorable is 39%/56%, while Independents are at 39%/55& and women a surprising 47%/49%. Meanwhile Sanders has a favorable/unfavorable rating of 44%/35% and better numbers with Independents and woman than Hillary.

This Democrat primary was supposed to be a cake walk for Hillary as there was no real alternative for the Democrats stepped up to the plate. Now Hillary Clinton finds herself in a dog fight with a socialist. This is not your grandfather’s or father’s Democrat Party anymore. Hell, this is not even Bill Clinton’s Democrat party.

Democrats Feel the Bern!!!

Bernie Sanders2

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton are running even in a new national poll tracking support for the Democratic presidential race.

Clinton garnered 44% to Sanders’ 42%, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Friday. A sizeable 11% say they are undecided.

The poll appears to signal a dramatic tightening of the Democratic race following Clinton’s razor-thin victory over Sanders in the Iowa caucuses.

The Quinnipiac poll is one of the first national surveys released since the Iowa results, so it is important to note it could represent statistical noise — trends won’t be clear until more national polling emerges.

National polls conducted before the Iowa caucuses showed the Democratic race tightening, but with Clinton still leading Sanders by double digits. CNN’s own national Poll of Polls from just before Iowa found Clinton at 53%, Sanders at 36% and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley at 2%.

The real question is not the cat fighting that the MSM, including FOX News, likes to promote on the GOP side between candidates and the irrelevant circus and side show antics that create ratings, the real story is just how unelectable is Hillary Clinton for Democrats and will a Socialist actually win the presidential nomination for the Democrat party. If that does happen, if there are any Reagan or blue color Democrats left in the party, it may be time to change party affiliation.

Democrat Primary Debate Ahead of NH Primary … Sanders and Clinton Take the Gloves Off, Kinda … Polls Show Sanders Way Ahead

WHEN DEMOCRATA ATTACK EACH OTHER …

As reported at The Politico, Clinton and Sanders just had the election’s most explosive exchange to date. Not that is saying a lot as the two candidates have been been in more or less of a kumbaya, love-fest until recently when Sanders actually realized he might be able to defeat Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders calls Hillary Clinton the “establishment” candidate and she loses it. Guess what Hillary … you are the definition of establishment and the Washington political elite.

“Sen. Sanders is the only person who would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment. And I’ve got to tell you, it is really quite amusing to me,” Clinton said. “People support me because they know me, they know my life’s work, they have worked with me and many have also worked with Sen. Sanders. And at the end of the day, they’ve endorsed me because they know I can get things done.”

Watch the VIDEO below where Hillary Clinton loses her mind and goes all “Shillary” on Bernie Sanders and the crowds negative reaction. It is just amazing to believe that Bernie Sanders is so far out ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire.

After a string of debates where Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders discussed (and occasionally disagreed about) the fine points of progressive policy, the two finally had a full-fledged throwdown Thursday night.

Clinton accused Sanders of going negative on the campaign trail, telling the Vermont Senator at the Democratic debate that his campaign was smearing her name.

“I think it’s time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent week,” Clinton said after Sanders talked about getting money out of politics.

Sanders, You cant be a moderate and a Progressive

Sanders has boasted about not receiving money from Wall street, and has pointed out in recent weeks that Clinton has received large sums in exchange for speaking.

“Sen. Sanders has said he wants to run a positive campaign. I’ve tried to keep my disagreements over issues, but time and time again, by innuendo and by insinuation there is this attack that he is putting forth,” Clinton said.

“Which really comes down to anyone who ever took donations or speaking fees from interest groups has to be bought, and I absolutely reject that Senator. I really don’t think those attacks by insinuation are worthy of you,” Clinton continued.

NBC News/Wall Street/Marist poll: Sanders Leads Clinton by 20 Points in New Hampshire.

Bernie Sanders maintains a significant double-digit lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, according to an NBC News/Wall Street/Marist poll conducted after Clinton’s narrow apparent win in Monday’s Iowa caucuses.

Sanders gets the support of 58 percent of likely Democratic primary voters, while Clinton gets 38 percent — essentially unchanged from last week’s NBC/WSJ/Marist poll, which showed Sanders ahead by a 57 percent-to-38 percent margin in the Granite State.

New Hanpshire Democrat Town Hall 2/3/16: Hillary Clinton Defends Her $675,000 from Goldman Sachs for Speaking Events … Then Says She Never Knew She Was Going to Run For President

THE LIES CONTINUE FROM HILLARY CLINTON …

At A Democrat Town Hall hosted by CNN from Derry, New Hampshire on February 3, 2016 Hillary Clinton continued her outlandish lies in defending why she accepted $675,000 from Goldman Sachs for speaking events. When asked, she just laughed it off and said that is what they offered. Hillary then said, that’s  normal for a former Secretary of State to give paid speeches. Hmm, really?

Wow, to Anderson Cooper’s credit they followed up and stated, “but that’s when they are out of office and usually not running for anything anymore.” Hillary Clinton then followed with the lie of the night. She actually had the audacity to say that she did not know whether she was going to run for president. PLEASE, SPARE US THE BS!!! Hillary Clinton’s entire life has been to run for president. When she lost to Obama, she was further driven to run for president. When she took the job as Secretary of State it was to help her in a 2016 run for president. And when she had her emails on a private server and wiped the server clean, it was to hide any incriminating information that would prevent her from running for president. Hillary Clinton is a complete liar. It is comments like this where she simply is incapable of telling the truth why no one trusts her.

Yeah, Hillary is a progressive all right. This is why Sanders is questioning whether Hillary Clinton is a real progressive. As Bernie Sanders stated, “I do not know any progressive that has a super PAC and takes $15 million from Wall Street. That’s just not progressive.”

The Hill:

Speaking at CNN’s Democratic presidential forum, anchor Anderson Cooper pressed Clinton on whether it had been a mistake for her to reel in more than $200,000 per speech for three speeches to the Wall Street giant.

“Look, I made speeches to lots of groups. I told them what I thought. I answered questions,” Clinton said.

“But did you have to be paid $675,000?,” Cooper asked.

“Well I don’t know,” Clinton responded. “That’s what they offered.”

The crowd burst into laughter as Clinton explained that “every secretary of State I know has done that.”

Cooper shot back that usually the secretary of State is not preparing to run for president.

“To be honest I wasn’t committed to running,” Clinton said. “I didn’t know whether I would run or not.”

Hillary Clinton Iowa Caucus Victory Speech, Feb. 1, 2016 … What the Hell Was Up With Sticker Kid? (VIDEO)

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton delivered remarks at her Iowa caucus night party in Des Moines. I know from watching this VIDEO below that this woman can never become president or this country is finished. Was it me or did Hillary seem a bit hostile and angry during her speech? Of course I guess she had a right to seeing that she squandered a +50 point lead and won the Democrat Iowa caucus on the back of 6 coin flips.

But it was the ‘sticker kid’ who stole the show from Hillary Clinton’s Iowa speech. Thankfully, the Drake University student Peter Clinkscales was there to provide comic relief so we could focus on something other than the shrill stylings of Hillary Clinton.

“I saw that a presidential candidate was going to be at my university and I thought that I should go see that presidential candidate at my university,” Clinkscales, who’s still undecided about who he’s supporting in the presidential election, told Mashable early Tuesday morning.

With stickers hanging for dear life to his face, Clinkscales made some crazy mouth contortions.

Talk about your bad nights for Hillary Clinton. First she gets shown up by a socialist in Bernie Standers who basically tied her in Iowa and then during her so-called victory speech, Hillary is shown up by “sticker boy.” LOL!!!

District of Columbia Bill Would Pay People Stipends Not to Commit Crimes

ARE YOU KIDDING, WE ARE NOW PAYING CRIMINALS NOT TO COMMIT CRIMES?

District of Columbia Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie is the Democrat who wrote the legislation that would pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. UNREAL, but this is what you get for liberal logic. Tax payers are supposed to redistribute their money and give it to individuals so they don’t commit crimes. Just curious, what happens if some one receives the stipend and does actually commit a crimes, do we get a refund? Why is it that liberals think using other peoples money and just throwing dollars at issues solves the problem?

Next up, paying kids to go to school, paying people not to speed, paying men not to abuse their wives, paying child molesters not not to commit crimes against the helpless and maybe even paying terrorists not to wage jihad. What do you think libs?

WTF

They say crime doesn’t pay, but that might not be entirely true in the District of Columbia as lawmakers look for ways to discourage people from becoming repeat offenders.

The D.C. Council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve a bill that includes a proposal to pay residents a stipend not to commit crimes. It’s based on a program in Richmond, California, that advocates say has contributed to deep reductions in crime there.

Under the bill, city officials would identify up to 200 people a year who are considered at risk of either committing or becoming victims of violent crime. Those people would be directed to participate in behavioral therapy and other programs. If they fulfill those obligations and stay out of trouble, they would be paid.

The bill doesn’t specify the value of the stipends, but participants in the California program receive up to $9,000 per year.

[...]

Richmond experienced a 77 percent drop in homicides between 2007, when the program was launched, and 2014, although how much can be specifically attributed to the stipends is unclear.

The proposal in Washington has generated scant debate as lawmakers have focused on other crime-fighting tools included in the bill. Longtime civic activist Dorothy Brizill was the only person to testify against the stipend program at a lengthy hearing last fall, saying it would waste taxpayer dollars.

 

Was the Correct Winner Called in Iowa for the Democrats Between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders?

Hmm, and the MSM tried to paint the GOP races as the circus, it really looks like that belongs to the Democrat party …

The Des Moines Register writes, Iowa’s nightmare revisited: Was correct winner called? The worst thing happened Monday night for the Democrat party and that is the nightmare scenario played out live and in color, a tie between the establishment candidate Hillary Clinton and the self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. Making matters worse, the vote was so close that there is no way to ever know who really won because there is always some form of voter fraud of miscounting inherent in any vote. The division seems to be great among Democrats as the Sanders supporters chanted, “She’s a liar.” Hmm, that’s something you will not heat or see reported by the MSM, there is only turmoil among the GOP.  The nightmare gets worse for Hillary and the establishment Democrat party, how is it possible that Hillary Clinton and her all-powerful team, the ultra-establishment candidate failed to win over Iowa caucus goers and lost a +50 point lead in Iowa to a 74 year old socialist candidate in Bernie Sanders?

Feel the Bern

It’s Iowa’s nightmare scenario revisited: An extraordinarily close count in the Iowa caucuses — and reports of chaos in precincts, website glitches and coin flips to decide county delegates — are raising questions about accuracy of the count and winner.

This time it’s the Democrats, not the Republicans.

Even as Hillary Clinton trumpeted her Iowa win in New Hampshire on Tuesday, aides for Bernie Sanders said the eyelash-thin margin raised questions and called for a review. The chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party rejected that notion, saying the results are final.

At 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, Iowa Democratic Party Chairwoman Andy McGuire announced that Clinton had eked out a slim victory, based on results from 1,682 of 1,683 precincts.

Voters from the final missing Democratic precinct tracked down party officials Tuesday morning to report their results. Sanders won that precinct, Des Moines precinct No. 42, by two delegate equivalents over Clinton.

The Iowa Democratic Party said the updated final tally of delegate equivalents for all the precincts statewide was:

Clinton: 700.59

Sanders: 696.82.

That’s a 3.77-count margin between Clinton, the powerful establishment favorite who early on in the Democratic race was expected to win in a virtual coronation, and Sanders, a democratic socialist who few in Iowa knew much about a year ago.

Can you imagine what Tuesday must have been like to be a part of Team Clinton? In 2008, the presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton lost to a candidate that no one had really heard from before by the name of Barack Obama. Now in 2016, Clinton stands once again as the overwhelming presumptive Democrat nominee and faces a real challenge from a 74 year old socialist who was never supposed to be much of a factor, let alone have a chance to win.

Thank you. Iowa, thank you. Nine months ago, we came to this beautiful state. We had no political organization; we had no money; no name recognition. And we were taking on the most powerful political organization in the United States of America.

And tonight while the results are still not known, it looks like we are in a virtual tie.

And while the results are still not complete, it looks like we’ll have half of the Iowa delegates. I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Secretary Clinton, somebody — yep — and her organization for waging a very vigorous campaign.

And I want to thank Governor O’Malley. It’s never easy to lose. I’ve lost more than one campaign. But he should know that he contributed a whole lot to the dialogue, that he ran an issue-oriented campaign, and he won the respect of the American people. … If I think about what happened tonight, I think the people of Iowa have sent a very profound message to the political establishment, to the economic establishment, and, by the way, to the media establishment.

Simply Amazing … Socialist Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in a Dead Heat in Democrat Iowa Caucus

NAIL-BITER FOR DEMOCRATS IN IOWA …

In April of 2014 Hillary Clinton had a 58 point lead over Bernie Sanders. But with 91% of the vote in, it is a 50% to 50% race between Clinton and Sanders. UNREAL. What does it tell us about Hillary Clinton and the Democrat party in general. How does a 74 year old, self-proclaimed socialist like Bernie Sanders actually make a race of it against Clinton?

Iowa Caucus DEM

Below is the final tally of the RCP average polling which one cam plainly see that Sanders over-perfomed by 6.1% and Hillary did so by 2.1%.

RCP_Iowa 2016 Polling Data

UPDATE I: Little Separates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in Tight Race in Iowa.

The close vote means that Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders are likely to split

Iowa’s share of delegates to the Democratic convention, and Mr. Sanders will be able to argue that the Iowa result was a virtual tie.

The Clinton team was counting on its huge, well-trained army of volunteers, covering all of Iowa’s 1,681 voting precincts, to counter the enormous enthusiasm of voters who jammed into events to hear Mr. Sanders. But his well-financed Iowa organization was able to convert the energy of his crowds into voters on Monday night, as he drew huge numbers of first-time caucusgoers, young people and liberals who responded to his rallying cry against the nation’s “rigged economy.”

The virtual tie between the two candidates instantly raised the stakes for their next face-off, the primary next Tuesday in New Hampshire. Mr. Sanders holds a solid lead in polls there and has the advantage of being from Vermont; candidates from neighboring states have won the state’s primary in recent decades, and Mr. Sanders is admired in the state.

Martin O’Malley Suspends Presidential Bid After Poor Showing in Iowa Caucus

Democrat O’Malley Suspends his campaign … Did he ever have one to begin with?

Following a poor showing in last night’s Iowa Caucuses, Democrat Martin O’Malley suspended his campaign and dropped out of the race. One might ask whether he ever had a campaign as in the Iowa Caucus he managed to under-perform his 3% polling. One has to wonder how a former mayor of Baltimore, MD, with all that has recently gone on there, could have ever been considered a viable candidate. Obviously, he wasn’t.

He’s out!

Martin_O'Malley

Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley announced the suspension of his presidential campaign Monday night, following a dismal showing in the Iowa caucuses that effectively ended his long-simmering White House ambitions.

O’Malley, who had started laying the groundwork for a presidential bid following his 2010 reelection as governor, was lagging far behind former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. With 90 percent of precincts reporting, O’Malley registered support from less than 1 percent of caucus-goers.

“I want to thank everyone who came out to our events and lent me their ear and everyone who went out to caucus for me tonight,” O’Malley told supporters as he announced his decision.

CNN Democrat Town Hall Question Proved to be a Fraud, Planted Question to Hillary Clinton … “I can see why they gave you this.”

CNN – DEMOCRAT PARTY TOWN HALL FRAUD …

There is a reason why CNN is called the Clinton News Network and the MSM is called the Democrat-Media complex. One has to look no farther than the recent CNN Town Hall in Iowa where you can plainly see and hear for yourself that Hillary Clinton was asked a planted question. One of Hillary Clinton’s final questions was from a young student named Brett Rosengren where he said prior to actually asking the question, “I can see why they gave you this.” THEY! WHO IS THEY?

Obviously, this was a planted question. Sorry LIBS, as much as you want to try and defend the obvious, you were busted!!! So it makes you wonder how many of the other questions were the same and did the candidates know them in advance to prepare their answers. Kind of defeats the purpose of a Town Hall.

Des Moines Register Endorses Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton Ahead of Iowa Caucuses

Des Moines Register enforces Marco Rubio for the GOP and Hillary Clinton for the Democrats ahead of the 2016 Iowa Caucuses. According to RCP, Rubio is running a distant third to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. Meanwhile for the Democrats, RCP has Hillary ahead of Berniew Sanders but only because of one poll that is way out of whack with the majority of them in Iowa. The last Des Moines Register poll had Clinton only up by 2 on Sanders; however, the momentum is on the side of the self-proclaimed socialist, Sanders.

The Iowa Caucus is scheduled for Monday, February 1, 2016.

marco-rubio_hillary Clinton

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton received potential boosts to their presidential bids in Iowa by winning the endorsements of the Des Moines Register, the dominant newspaper in the state where the Feb. 1 caucuses will start the 2016 nomination voting.

“Rubio has the potential to chart a new direction for the party, and perhaps the nation, with his message of restoring the American dream,” Iowa’s largest newspaper said in an endorsement of the Florida Republican published on its website Saturday evening. “We endorse him because he represents his party’s best hope.”

On the Democratic side, the newspaper’s editorial said this of Clinton: “No other candidate can match the depth or breadth of her knowledge and experience.”

Hearing about the endorsement on a campaign stop in Davenport, Iowa, Clinton said: “I’m very pleased.”

The editorial made note of Clinton’s top rival, U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and the emotional appeal he’s generated in the party: “In the final analysis, Iowa Democrats will have to choose between the lofty idealism of Bernie Sanders and the down-to-earth pragmatism of Hillary Clinton. For some, this will be a choice of whether to vote with their hearts or their heads.”
