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!!!
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.
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.”
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.”

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?
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:
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.
Sen. Marco Rubio Iowa Caucus Speech: Hammers Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton … Hillary Clinton is disqualified from being the President & Commander in Chief of the United States (VIDEO)
Ted Cruz may have won Iowa much to the surprise of the pundits and establishment, but Marco Rubio had just a strong and surprising showing as well. Rubio nearly passed Donald Trump and came in second. Following Sen. Marco Rubio’s strong third place finish in Iowa, Rubio spoke to his supporters, thanked them and put forth his vision if he is elected president of the United States.
“After 7 years of Barack Obama, we are not waiting any longer to take our country back. This is not a time for waiting … This is a time where we need a president that will truly preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Not one that undermines, attacks and ignores the Constitution of the United States.”
“In America there are only two ways forward for us now, we can be greater than we have ever been or we can be a great nation in decline. If Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton get elected, if they were to win we will become a great nation in decline.”
Check out the 3:06 mark of the video where Rubio calls out Hillary Clinton and states she is disqualified from becoming president of the United States:
“Hillary Clinton is disqualified from being the President of the United States because she stored classified information and sensitive information on her email server and because she thinks she is above the law. And Hillary Clinton can never be Commander in Chief because anyone who lies to the family of people who have lost their lives in the service of this country can never be Commander in Chief of the United States!”
Following his victory last night in the 2016 Iowa Caucus, Senator Ted Cruz took shots at the media and the political establishment while thanking his supporters. Last night in Iowa there was record turnout as Cruz won the most votes ever cast for any Republican primary winner in Iowa.
“Tonight the state of Iowa has spoken. Iowa has sent notice that the Republican nominee and next president of the United States will not be chosen by the media, will not be chosen by the Washington establishment, will not be chosen by the lobbyists, but will be chosen by the most incredible powerful force where all sovereignty resides in our nation … BY WE THE PEOPLE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!”
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?
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%.
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.
GOP Iowa Caucuses: Cruz, Trump and Rubio in a 3-Person Race (Update: Ted Cruz Declared Winner in Iowa)
IOWA CAUCUS 2016: All night long its been nip and tuck between Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio in the GOP Iowa Caucus. Finally, the race has been called by FOX News … Sen. Ted Cruz has been declared the winner in Iowa!!! ABC News is calling the race as well.
Ted Cruz is the winner of the Iowa Republican caucuses, Fox News projects, beating front-runner Donald Trump in a victory that could shake up the primary race.
Trump finishes second, and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio finishes a close third.
There was a record turn out tonight in Iowa and many thought had that occurred, Donald Trump would win the Iowa Caucus going away. Guess what, the pundits were incorrect again.
Supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas delivered a hard-fought upset win over businessman Donald Trump in the Iowa Republican caucuses Monday night, making good on his bet that a methodical campaign organization would eclipse the New Yorker’s media dominance in the first test of GOP voters.
With 99 percent of the precincts reporting, Cruz was besting Trump by more than 5,100 votes, with fellow senator Marco Rubio of Florida a close third. Cruz appeared to capitalize on deep support from religious and social conservatives and showed that old-fashioned retail politicking could overcome Trump’s massive political rallies in the Hawkeye state.
Final Polls Before Today’s Iowa Caucus … Trump Leads Cruz 28% to 23% and Hillary Clinton Leads Sanders 45% to 42%
The final Des Moines Register poll is in ahead of today’s Iowa Caucus, and it shows that Donald Trump has the support of 28% of likely caucus goers, with Texas Sen. Ted Cruz at 23% and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio at 15%. The poll was taken beginning the day after Trump announced he would skip last week’s GOP debate. Who knows whether that decision will come back to haunt him or not. We shall also see where the polls back up caucus goers. On the Democratic side, the survey finds former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with 45% support to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 42%. It is unbelievable that Sanders is so close in the polls to Hillary. Many are looking to gleam and info or data that will give us an indicator as to who might win in Iowa.
February 1, 2016 … Let the Iowa Caucusing begin!!!
In the final poll before the Iowa caucuses Monday, Donald Trump holds a slight 5-point lead over Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are neck-and-neck within the margin of error. The Des Moines Register and Bloomberg Politics pool took place January 26-29, three days before Trump skipped the GOP Iowa debate to one day after.
This particular poll, which has a history of accuracy as it predicted Rick Santorum’s late surge in 2012, shows Donald Trump as the frontrunner, but still a close race with two days to go. Trump will need the help of first-time caucus-goers to boost his chances of beating Cruz and in this poll, 40 percent say their caucusing for their first time.
Trump does have weaknesses, though, in the eyes of Iowa voters who don’t like his position on eminent domain and past statements in favor of abortion rights. Cruz’s campaign has been running an ad in Iowa showing Trump in 1999 telling a reporter: “I am very pro-choice.”
FOX NEWS GOP Debate: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) Says, “If You Guys Ask One more Mean Question, I’m Going to Have to Leave the Stage” … Then Schools Moderator Chris Wallace on What a Debate Actually Is (VIDEO)
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) mocks Donald Trump and schools Chris Wallace during last night’s GOP Debate …
Last night during the Republican debate on FOX News, Sen. Ted Cruz took the opportunity to mock Donald Trump, absent from the event due to a hair pulling fight with Fox News co-moderator Megyn Kelly, by stating after a slew of questions that were presented to other candidates meant to stir the pot and cause a food fight … But I will say this, gosh, if you guys say — ask one more mean question, I’m going to have to leave the stage.” Obviously, Cruz was joking and it was meant to emphasize the fact that Trump was not there because he did not want to deal with tough and mean questions. But I must say with regards to Trump, isn’t it amazing that the guy is not even at the event and he still commands the room.
However, the ironic moment of the night was when Megyn Kelly of all people, the individual who Trump has had so many issues with for being bias, ended up as The Politico reported, kneecapped his rivals on immigration and wound up doing Trump’s dirty work for him.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, told the moderators of the Republican presidential debate at Iowa Events Center on Thursday that he might just take his ball and go home.
His threat to leave the stage came after he accused Fox News’ questioners of encouraging his rivals to attack him.
“I would note that the last four questions have been, ‘Rand, please attack Ted. Marco, please attack Ted. Chris, please attack Ted. Jeb, please attack Ted.”
Cruz’s comment provoked loud boos from the audience. His critique of the debate questions came after former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was asked about how his plans to confront the jihadi group ISIS would differ from those put forth by Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
Moderator Chris Wallace offered a retort to Cruz.
“It is a debate, sir,” Wallace said.
Cruz wasn’t satisfied with Wallace’s response.
“No, no, a debate actually is a policy issue,” Cruz said. “But I will say this, gosh, if you guys say — ask one more mean question, I’m going to have to leave the stage.”
“The most important determination any voter is going to make in this election is who’s best prepared to be commander in chief, who has the experience, who has the knowledge, who has the judgment, who has the clarity of vision and strength of resolve to keep this country safe,” Cruz said. “That is what this debate is all about, and I would suggest let’s stay focused on those issues rather than just attacks directed at each other.
