Bernie Sanders overtakes Hillary Clinton in latest Iowa poll

September 11, 2015

Hillary Scary  The Democratic primary season was supposed to be a long, drawn out coronation parade for the first ever woman to receive the Presidential nomination of a major political party and it was to continue all the way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in January of 2017. But rocked with scandal, with trustworthy numbers in the tank, and with the simple fact that she is just not a likable person things have not turned out as planned for the former Secretary of State–or for the Democratic party for that matter.

  Hillary Clinton already trailed the socialist from Vermont in the last two New Hampshire polls while the last poll in Iowa showed Bernie Sanders cutting significantly into her lead, and now the latest Iowa poll shows Bernie Sanders ahead of Hillary Clinton for the first time.

  Here is more:

Bernie Sanders leads the former secretary of state for the first time among Iowa Democrats likely to caucus in February, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll unveiled Thursday morning — the latest in a string of surveys that show a tightening race in the Hawkeye State.

The Vermont senator’s advantage is within the margin of error — he took 41 percent compared with Clinton’s 40 percent — and another 12 percent said they would support Vice President Joe Biden, who has yet to declare his 2016 intentions. (Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley picked up 3 percent, while no other candidate registered above that mark, and 3 percent were undecided.)

  Bernie-SandersIt is true that Bernie Sanders only holds a one point lead, however even while surging in Iowa the last poll still showed him trailing by 11 points so to make up this much ground in such a short period of time is a good indicator of what the Democratic voters think of Mrs. Clinton at this point in time.

  This cannot make the party leaders in the Democratic party very happy at all because they have already decided Hillary Clinton would be the nominee and they have also decided that Bernie Sanders would not be the nominee: they are actively working on “Plan-B” to ensure the former Vermont Senator does not win the nomination in the event that Hillary Clinton does not recover from this free-fall.

    I guess at this point we have to start questioning what we are wishing for. 🙂

      I have been questioning how wise this has been as well but I just cannot help it! 😉 I guess we will have to try to eliminate them one at a time.

    Facts are just facts and nothing more when it comes to the ‘Reality Making Machine’ of the corrupt and shrewd! If those w/ the power & control want Hilly in more than likely she’ll be in.

    OT – something a neighbor wrote you might enjoy!:
    RE: The KY Clerk
    (1) A person walks into a (Jewish) Deli, orders a ham sandwich. The owner says, “I’m sorry – we don’t handle or serve Pork.” The man says, “You have a license to serve the public.”
    The owner says, “We serve the public, but we do not serve pork.”

    The person should do the following.
    A. Call the P.C. Police
    B. Threaten to sue.
    C. Go to another restaurant.
    D. Go to a (Muslim) deli and cause another issue.

    (2) A women goes to the Doctor, and requests an abortion. The Doctor says, “I do not do abortions.” The women points to his medical license and says, “You are licensed to provide medical services to the public.”
    The Doctor says, “I provide Medical Services to the public, but I do not do abortions.”
    The women should do the following:

    A. Call the P.C. Police
    B. Threaten to sue.
    C. Go to another Doctor.
    D. Go to Planned Parenthood and ask for a percentage of the profits.

        I like to think that I am already on her bad list because then I will know I am doing something right! 🙂

      I think you know what option I would choose but I guess that isn’t the way it works in this country any more. Now it is all about taking down people who do not agree with you through harassment and lawsuits
