Hillary Clinton just doesn’t have the FBI hot on her trail: fellow Dem Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is on the verge of making Clinton “#FeelTheBern” in the early voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire.
Hillary only leads by 3% in Iowa where she lost to Barack Obama in 2008, and is 4% behind Sanders in New Hampshire. Victories for Sanders in those states would be horrendous for Hillary and could provide Sanders a clear path to the nomination if the momentum carries over to other states.
According to The Wall Street Journal:
“Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are deadlocked in both Iowa and New Hampshire three weeks before voting begins in the 2016 presidential race, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist poll finds.
The Republican primary contest also remains tight in Iowa.
Mrs. Clinton holds a slim, 48%-to-45% lead over the Vermont senator among likely Democratic caucusgoers in Iowa, the survey found. Mr. Sanders edges the former secretary of state among likely primary voters in New Hampshire, 50% to 46%. Both leads are within the polling margins of error.
The survey underscores the challenge Mrs. Clinton faces in the first two nominating states. Losses in Iowa and New Hampshire would level a blow to Mrs. Clinton’s presidential prospects, give Mr. Sanders a burst of momentum and immediately inject his campaign with more credibility. Yet back-to-back defeats might not be debilitating to Mrs. Clinton.”
