In the latest NBC/Marist poll, Bernie Sanders has jumped out to a nine-point lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, 41-32. Sanders’ rise reflects Hillary’s email server troubles, to be sure, but more fundamentally–I am repeating myself here–the fact that she is an awful candidate.
Slow Joe Biden, who is not in the race, is third at 16%. The other relatively mainstream candidates, Martin O’Malley and Jim Webb, can’t get above 1%.
So the Democrats are in deep trouble. Maybe they are determined to find out how many socialist voters there are in the U.S. My prediction: not enough.
