Poll: Bernie Sanders Surges Ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire
A Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll shows Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders ahead of longtime front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire—the first time Clinton has trailed in the 2016 primary campaign. Sanders leads Clinton 44 to 37 percent among likely Democratic primary voters, according to the poll of 442 residents of the Granite State.
From The Christian Science Monitor:
Yes, it’s just one poll. Yes, the Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald survey has a margin of error of 4.7 percentage points, meaning it’s possible that Mrs. Clinton and Senator Sanders are actually tied. Yes, the poll is based on phone interviews with only 442 people. That’s not exactly a big sample.
Still, the same pollsters in March had Clinton ahead of Sanders by 44 to 8 percent.
Is it time for panic in Chappaqua? The news is doubly bad for Clintonworld today, given that the former secretary of State has turned over to the FBI her personal e-mail server and a thumb drive with copies of 30,000 e-mails sent from her controversial private system.
Well, at the lower levels sheer terror is certainly a viable position. Political campaigns run on lattes and lack of sleep, producing an atmosphere in which black humor is appropriate for almost any occasion. But it’s not time for panic on the bridge. Hillary Clinton is still the overwhelming favorite to win the Democratic nomination for president.
