The Boston Herald is reporting tonight the results of a new poll that puts Bernie Sanders ahead of Hillary Clinton in the Granite state by a margin of 44 – 37. This poll was conducted before today’s news about Hillary’s latest email troubles:
Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has rocketed past longtime front-runner Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, a stunning turn in a race once considered a lock for the former secretary of state, a new Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald poll shows.
Sanders leads Clinton 44-37 percent among likely Democratic primary voters, the first time the heavily favored Clinton has trailed in the 2016 primary campaign, according to the poll of 442 Granite-Staters.
Vice President Joe Biden got 9 percent support in the test primary match-up. The other announced Democrats in the race, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee and former Virginia Gov. Jim Webb, barely register at 1 percent or below.
Get ready for the Democratic establishment to start panicking. But is Bernie peaking too early? I’m sure the Clinton attack machine will cut Sanders down to size in short order.
