Shifting Democratic sands are piling up on Bernie Sander’s shoreline. Even Joe Biden is polling more favorable than Hillary Clinton. It could have been her statement, “I didn’t think about the effect of email,” according to Tom Brokaw, who was stunned by that statement. See video.
1. Hillary’s shrinking lead.
2. Biden more popular than Clinton.
Bernie Sanders has jumped out to a nine-point lead over front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, and he’s gained ground on her among Iowa voters in the Democratic presidential race, according to a pair of brand-new NBC News/Marist polls.
In New Hampshire, the Vermont senator gets the support of 41 percent of Democratic voters, Clinton gets 32 percent and Vice President Joe Biden gets 16 percent. No other Democratic candidate received more than 1 percent.
Without Biden in the race, Sanders’ lead over Clinton in the current survey increases to 11 points, 49 percent to 38 percent.
Amid speculation that Biden might enter the 2016 presidential race, the NBC/Marist polls found that the vice president is more popular than Clinton — among both Democrats and the general electorate.
And they show that he matches up better in general-election contests than Clinton does. via NBC News
