The presidential campaign news for Bernie Sanders continues to improve as Hillary Clinton’s campaign continues on the path to implosion. According to The Hill on Saturday, Sanders has surged in the polls to the point where it can be said that he is now in reach of Clinton in Iowa. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is within single-digits of former the former secretary of state and former first lady’s popularity with voters in the all-important state of Iowa in the latest poll of Iowan voters regarding the 2016 presidential election’s Democratic nominee.
The poll that was conducted by the Des Moines Register reveals that Clinton is down to 37 percent support of the potential voters while Sanders has surged to 30 percent in a very short amount of time. Quite incredibly, this poll was taken just last May when Clinton had the clear overall advantage. Just three months ago, Clinton sported a 57 percent over just 16 percent garnered by Sanders. In New Hampshire, Sanders has already passed up Clinton in popularity polls with potential Democratic presidential voters.
In other negativity for Clinton, just 24 hours ago, Politico reported that Clinton’s popularity is sliding incredibly as the front-running GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump, rides high. As Democratic leader Hillary Clinton continually loses ground by only having the support of 45 percent of Democratic voters in a new Quinnipiac University poll, according to a Politico report on Saturday, Republican presidential candidate Trump has knocked his Party’s support of him up to an unprecedented 28 percent in a list of 17 presidential candidates on the GOP side. For Trump, that is up from just having 20 percent of the GOP voters’ support a month ago. For Clinton, her standing at 45 percent is a loss of 10 percent from 55 percent just a month ago. While the Trump popularity tends to puzzle pundits, the Clinton implosion is obvious.
Mrs. Clinton’s reluctance to be candid and forthright about her private emails and email service scandal – embedded with her continual statements about the scandal that are not true – are hurting her among people who actually follow the news. She continually has attempted to save face through it all as talk of criminal charges against her continue to swirl. Her only sign of remorse over the email travesty may have been recently when she said of her private emails while campaigning in Iowa and said, “It clearly wasn’t the best choice.” Her heavy losses are clearly Sanders’ and Trump’s gains in the political arena. Clinton’s numbers regarding her trustworthy and honesty continue to tumble. An ABC report released at the end of this week said that the word most associated with Hillary Clinton via the public is “liar.”
