Clinton Panics as Sanders Pushes Closer in Iowa

The battle for Iowa is heating up and Hillary Clinton’s once dominate lead has completely evaporated, according to the latest poll by the DM Register/Bloomberg.

Which Democratic candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 42%
  • Bernie Sanders – 40%

Bernie Sanders has officially arrived and it looks like he is here to stay. A few months ago, Sanders was dangerously low in the polls and many questioned his viability as a candidate heading into 2016.

With 2016 upon us, Sanders has answered the call and is taking the challenge to Clinton directly. Clinton once enjoyed a double digit lead over Sanders, but that is now completely gone and she has become increasingly desperate.

Clinton has resorted to calling in the attack dogs, her husband Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea Clinton. Both her husband and daughter have been fighting for her on the campaign trail, pushing her as the ideal candidate, and in the case of Chelsea, attacking Sanders over issues that he is passionate about, like healthcare.

If Sanders can seize momentum in Iowa, he will more than likely win New Hampshire and challenge Clinton for the Democratic nomination. Voters adore Sanders and view him as a caring candidate that wants to help them, whereas the opposite can be said for Clinton and her dishonest and robotic appearance.
