If you’re searching for an explanation for Donald Trump’s relatively modest surge in the crowded Republican presidential field, look no further than this story from the Washington Post’s Philip Rucker:
The Bernie Sanders moment does not appear to be passing, at least not yet. The latest Quinnipiac poll of of likely Democratic caucusgoers in Iowa shows the Vermont senator trailing Hillary Clinton by 19 points—a gaping deficit, until you consider that just two months ago, Clinton led Sanders by 45 points in Quinnipiac's Iowa poll.
Bernie Sanders is within single digits of Hillary Clinton in a new poll of New Hampshire Democratic primary voters. The survey from CNN and WMUR finds Clinton's support among Granite State Democrats at 43 percent, while Sanders, a Vermont senator, registers 35 percent support. That's the best showing for Sanders since was first included in the CNN/WMUR poll in July 2014, while it is Clinton's worst performance since February 2013.
Vermont senator Bernie Sanders is being attacked in a new ad for not being liberal enough on guns.
"Bernie Sanders is no progressive when it comes to guns," says a voiceover in the 15-second spot, which criticizes the socialist senator's votes against two gun-control bills. The ad also notes the National Rifle Association's support for Sanders. Watch the video below:
Former Hillary Clinton aide Maria Cardona said she wouldn't be surprised if socialist Bernie Sanders beats Hillary Clinton in Iowa or New Hampshire:
"We shouldn't be surprised there's so much enthusiasm" for Bernie Sanders, said the former Clinton aide. "In fact, we wouldn't be surprised if he does very well in New Hampshire or in Iowa, and perhaps even win."
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. The poll, which shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton below 50 percent support and just 10 points ahead of senator Bernie Sanders, reveals an interesting detail about where Clinton is weakest among Granite State Democrats.
A second poll of New Hampshire Democratic primary voters shows Vermont senator Bernie Sanders closing the gap with former secretary of state Hillary Clinton. According to a new Suffolk University poll, 41 percent of likely primary voters in the Granite State support Clinton, while 31 percent support Sanders. The next closest Democrat, Vice President Joe Biden (who isn't currently running), comes in at eight percent.
Bernie Sanders, the independent Democratic senator from Vermont, is within striking distance of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton in a new poll of likely New Hampshire presidential primary voters. A new survey from the Morning Consult finds 44 percent of New Hampshire voters who say they will vote in the Democratic primary support Clinton with 32 percent supporting Sanders.
More than 50 Republican activists and officeholders in New Hampshire have signed an open letter to the heads of Fox News and the Republican National Committee to "urge" those leaders to "reconsider the criteria and to design a debate that will allow voters to hear from a more diverse and inclusive group of candidates who have filed to run for president."
Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has a warning for his main rival, Hillary Clinton. “Let me tell you a secret: we’re going to win New Hampshire,” Sanders reportedly told supporters, according to the
Hillary Clinton misstated her location at a campaign event today in New Hampshire. Instead of saying New Hampshire, the presidential candidate said, "Here in Washington."
"Here in Washington, we know that unfortunately the deck is still being stacked for those at the top," said the presidential candidate. "And that just doesn't work for a long term strategy either politically or economically."
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
