Clinton Slips up in Iowa and Loses New Hampshire
Hillary Clinton is finding it difficult to win battleground state’s Iowa and New Hampshire. The latest round of polls by NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist have revealed that she very narrowly beat Sanders in Iowa and lost in New Hampshire.
- Hillary Clinton – 48%
- Bernie Sanders – 45%
- Bernie Sanders – 50%
- Hillary Clinton – 46%
Clinton’s small victory in Iowa was well within the margin of error and should be concerning for her campaign. She is still polling at the top of the Democratic party, but Sanders is quickly climbing and taking key states from her and his campaign is building momentum as the caucuses approach.
In New Hampshire, Sanders has been beating Clinton in various polls in the past weeks. The state seems to favor Sanders and Clinton continues to struggle to beat Sanders in the polls in this state.
In terms of overall electability, most voters favor Sanders over Clinton as they seem him as a more genuine candidate who better understands the needs of the American people. Historically, Clinton has been seen as a liar and as a candidate who is willing to say whatever needs to be said to get elected.
A recent poll even suggested that 20 percent of Democrats were willing to vote Donald Trump if he won the Republican nomination. This is an alarming statistic for Clinton and shows how unpopular she is in the eyes of her own voters.
