The Bernie Surge Continues

Sanders continues to surge. The latest poll has him over 50% and leading by double digits in New Hampshire (I expected this, the Granite state should be friendly territory) and now taking the lead in Iowa.

The new poll finds Sen. Sanders with 52% support among Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire, while former Secretary of State Clinton, long considered the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic nomination, receives 30%. Recent polls have shown Sanders’ lead growing in the Granite State, but this would be the first to show the Vermont Senator over 50%.
Possibly more worrying for the Clinton campaign is her performance in Iowa, where Sanders now leads by 10 points, with 43% to Clinton’s 33%.

YouGov

I know that it is still early, but this is very bad news for Clinton. Sanders should win N.H. by a tiny margin and finish in a respectable second in Iowa if the Clinton narrative is true. These recent polls make it seem that the Secretary is a much weaker candidate than anyone expected.
