Panic Time for Hillary?

That’s what the Washington Post‘s Chris Cillizza thinks in this article today:

The latest piece of bad news for Hillary Rodham Clinton came in the form of a Quinnipiac poll out of Iowa on Thursday morning: Bernie Sanders, 41 percent. Clinton, 40 percent. Clinton has dropped 11 points in two months in the state, and now 1 in 3 self-identified Democrats say she is not honest or trustworthy.

The poll numbers come just days after NBC and Marist College released twin surveys in Iowa and New Hampshire that also spelled trouble for Clinton. She led Sanders in Iowa 38 to 27 — less than half her lead in a July NBC/Marist poll. In New Hampshire, Sanders led Clinton 41 to 32 — a 20-point shift from where the race stood in July. . .

Does anyone really think that if she lost Iowa and New Hampshire to Sanders that there wouldn’t be calls for her to leave the race or, at a minimum, a panicked search by the Democratic establishment for an alternative?

But even more devastating than the poll numbers is this photo of the crowd that turned out for Hillary’s latest public appearance in the crucial swing state of Ohio—you can just feel the excitement:
