In this current poll, Clinton also has her lowest net favorability rating, at 55 percent. Sanders actually ties with Clinton in net favorability.

On Fox News's Special Report this week, Steve Hayes suggested Hillary Clinton is vulnerable in her march to the Democratic nomination for president and that Vermont senator Bernie Sanders could be the one to cut into her support.
The only female Democratic candidate for president may have a problem with male voters in that party, judging by a new Suffolk University poll of the New Hampshire primary.

A second poll of New Hampshire Democratic primary voters shows Vermont senator Bernie Sanders closing the gap with former secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

There’s a small group of potential Republican presidential candidates you don’t hear much about, though they speak at events along with better-known candidates. They don’t have exploratory committees or campaign staffs. They’re one-man bands. But what they do have are impressive records. This group includes John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, ex-Virginia governor Jim Gilmore—and Robert Ehrlich, the former governor
Ashland, N.H. The Pemi-Baker Valley Republican Committee’s monthly all-you-can-eat spaghetti dinner isn’t the kind of place you expect to see a crowd. Especially one that includes college students, and on a Friday night, no less. But the American Legion on Main Street is hopping. Greeting guests at the door is Omer Ahern Jr., the committee’s round-faced, mutton-chopped executive vice president. And he’s ecstatic.
“Everybody’s excited,” Ahern says. “We’ve never had this many people here.”
