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.
THIS IS INSANE … A SOCIALIST IS DESTROYING HILLARY CLINTON IN NEW HAMPSHIRE ...
According to the most recent CNN/WMUR poll, Bernie Sanders, a self-proclaimed socialist, leads Hillary Clinton by a whopping 27 points in New Hampshire, 60% to 33%. Holy Cow!!! Are you kidding? Sorry, but Trump may not be the story in the 2016 race, but instead Sanders. It may be the Democrats who are scrambling for a last second candidate for president if Sanders keeps this momentum up. Is it possible that Clinton has a better shot of beating Trump than Sanders? That’s what a recent Monmouth poll says. Think about what that says about Democrat primary voters. Just how far LEFT have Democrats gone and how damaged a candidate is Hillary Clinton?
FEEL THE BERN!!!
Bernie Sanders’ lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire is on the rise, with the Vermont senator leading the former secretary of state by 27 points, 60% to 33%, a new CNN/WMUR poll has found.
The new poll, mostly conducted before Sunday night’s debate, found Sanders’ support has grown by 10 points since a late-November/early December CNN/WMUR poll, which found Sanders holding 50% to Clinton’s 40%.
New Hampshire Democrats’ views on the race are solidifying as well, with 52% saying they have definitely decided who they will support, up from 36% who felt that way in early December. Among those voters, Sanders holds an even broader 64% to 35% lead.
2016 Democrat Primaries: Hillary Clinton’s Lead Over Socialist Bernie Sanders Nearly Gone in Iowa and New Hampshire
HOW IN THE HELL IS THIS POSSIBLE, HILLARY DOES REALIZE THAT SANDERS IS IN THE RACE NOT TO WIN, RIGHT?
Democrat front runner and presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton has seen her poll numbers crater as she feels the Bern. With just a few weeks to go before the primary voting season begins in Iowa and New Hampshire, self proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders has closed the gap and taken the lead in some polls. Is it actually possible that Sanders could beat Hillary in the first caucus and primary states of the Democrat primary? At one point Hillary was up by more than 30 points, now she finds herself in a nail biter. Honestly, how is this possible? Hillary was all but given the Democrat party nomination as no viable candidate challenged her. Except for a Socialist from Vermont. Two questions come to mind, what the hell has happened to the Democrat party and just how bad a candidate is Hillary Clinton? Didn’t we see this same thing happen when a complete unknown named Barack Obama handed her a sever defeat in 2008? Feel the Bern as Bernie Sanders opined at the Iowa Brown & Black Forum in Des Moines, Iowa Monday night … “It could be that the inevitable candidate for the Democratic nomination may not be so inevitable today.”
The Democratic presidential race is tightening just weeks before the Iowa caucuses, renewing the sense among some Democrats that Bernie Sanders could sweep the first two voting states and challenge Hillary Clinton over the long haul.
New polling data released over the weekend shows close races in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two states to vote.
After weeks in which it appeared that Clinton had pulled away in Iowa, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll found the Vermont senator within 3 points of the front-runner there.
“It’s been tight in Iowa the whole time, even if the polls didn’t always show it,” said Sam Roecker, a Democratic strategist in Iowa not affiliated with either candidate. “Both campaigns have strong ground operations and have been putting in the time here. It was always going to be close.”
Meanwhile, the same poll found Sanders maintaining a 4-point lead over the former secretary of State in New Hampshire. In both surveys, the candidates are close enough that the results are within the margin of error.
Clinton campaign aides say they always expected the polls to tighten and that the race would be competitive until the end.
“Yes, it’s a bit of a nail-biter,” one Clinton ally acknowledged. “But we always knew it was going to be tight and down to the wire. That’s not surprising.”
With just 21 days until the presidential primaries officially begin in Iowa, Hillary Clinton’s support among Democrats nationally has taken a serious tumble, falling eight points to 43%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP Poll. Support for her chief rival, Bernie Sanders, rose six points to 39%.
As a result, Clinton’s lead over Sanders, which had been 18 points, is now just four points.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews Asks Hillary Clinton What’s the Difference Between a Democrat and a Socialist … She Cannot Answer the Question
WHO KNEW THAT CHRIS MATTHEWS COULD ASK SUCH DIFFICULT QUESTIONS?
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews managed to stump Hillary Clinton during a ‘Hard Ball’ interview on the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist. Hillary’s response, was only, “I’m Not One”. The Democrat presidential candidate managed to dodge the questions, as usual. However, maybe the answer is with today’s Democrat party, there is no difference between the two. This really wasn’t supposed to be a difficult question posed to Hillary Clinton. However, doesn’t it speak volumes that she cannot and will not answer the question. This should be a red flag to those that call themselves Independents and if there are any Reagan Democrats that still exist.
Matthews said he wanted to “help” Clinton, for his audience, locate herself politically, making the puzzling statement that “nobody” uses the term “socialist” in a derogatory way. Clinton’s challenger Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) identifies as a Democratic socialist.
“What’s the difference between a socialist and a Democrat?” Matthews asked. “Is that a question you want to answer or would you rather not, politically?”
“Well, you’d have to ask–” Clinton started.
“See, I’m asking you,” Matthew said. “You’re a Democrat, he’s a socialist. Would you like somebody to call you a socialist? I wouldn’t want someone calling me a socialist.”
“I’m not one,” she said.
Matthews asked her twice again what the difference was but Clinton spoke over him.
“I’m a progressive Democrat who likes to get things done and who believes that we are better off in this country when we’re trying to solve problems together. Getting people to work together. There will always be strong feelings and I respect that, from, you know, the far right, the far left, libertarians, whoever it might be, but we need to get people working together. We’ve got to get the economy fixed, we’ve got to get all of our problems, you know, really tackled and that’s what I want to do,” Clinton said.
Remember when DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz was asked by Chris Matthews what’s the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist? She too failed miserably to answer the question. Mathews said, I used to think there was a big difference. Hmm, used to? Does that mean that even Matthews thinks there is little to no difference?
Socialist Bernie Sanders Calls Out the Liberal MSM for Giving Donald Trump Too Much Attention … Boo Hoo, Liberal MSM Not Giving Liberals Enough Air Time
SOCIALIST BERNIE SANDERS ISN’T A BRAIN SURGEON, BUT HE DID STAY IN A HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS LAST NIGHT …
Oh the irony, Socialist and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appeared on CNN with Chris Cuomo and whined over the media coverage that was being given to Donald Trump. Sanders stated that the MSM was giving Trump too much media attention and was only doing so because Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks. Hmm, because backing a socialist agenda and making silly “socialist” comments don’t seem to catch the attention of a capitalist media, go figure?
Sanders called out Cuomo and stated that all the attention to Trump was “more of an indictment of the media, than of Trump”. Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls. However, Sanders has a point, but this is not anything different than they have ever done. But normally, the MSM is just paying attention to ridiculous liberal crap that is of no consequence as Rome burns.
Isn’t it comical though to see a liberal, and in this case a socialist, complaining about how much media coverage the liberal and bias MSM is giving to a Republican candidate? I cannot remember ever seeing such a thing. Of course, Sanders is acting as if all the media coverage for Trump is positive. But for liberals/socialists to complain the liberal MSM is not giving them enough air time is priceless.
Bernie Sanders says Donald Trump makes “bombastic” and “silly” remarks because they get media coverage — and blamed the press for falling for the real estate developer’s act.
“I’ll give you one example,” Sanders said in an interview that aired Thursday on CNN’s “New Day.” “A recent study showed on ABC evening news, Trump over a period of time got 81 minutes of time. Bernie Sanders got 20 seconds. Now you tell me why.”
Sanders continued, “I think it has to do with the fact that Trump is very smart. He knows that media is not so interested in the serious issues facing this country. They love bombastic remarks. They love silly remarks,” he told host Chris Cuomo. “I think this is more of an indictment of the media than it is Trump.”
But Cuomo pushed back on Sanders, arguing that Trump’s coverage is reflective of his popularity in the polls.
“I don’t see it,” Cuomo said. “Do we cover him more? Yes. Why? He’s number one in the polls. He’s highly relevant. He drives the discussion.”
But Sanders — who is trailing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton 34% to 50% in a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday -- interrupted Cuomo to say that Trump is on top because he is able to get his message out due to all of the media coverage.
But that is what socialism is all about, everything is the same. It is giving irrelevant people and issues the same amount of attention and time as the most important and pending ones. Don’t worry Bernie, you will be given a participation trophy after Hillary Clinton wins the Democrat primaries.
