Terrible candidate trails Bernie Sanders by five in Iowa, by 14 in New Hampshire

posted at 4:01 pm on January 12, 2016 by Allahpundit

The good news: The Clintons are being humiliated. The bad news: Are we sure we’d rather face Bernie Sanders in the general election? Think carefully. Has the GOP proved itself adept at attacking Democratic nominees as dangerously left-wing in recent elections?

While we debate that, I continue to admire Hillary’s persistence in running despite endless signals from her own party that they don’t want her. Ace is correct that this makes twice in eight years that a Democrat challenged her fully expecting to lose and then somehow found himself ahead. (“That’s how easy it is to beat Hillary. You can do it by accident.”) As a Twitter pal said this morning, she really is the Jeb Bush of the Democratic primary — plus about 40 extra percent in the polls. New from Iowa: Sanders 49, Clinton 44. A month ago, Quinnipiac had Hillary leading 51/40. This isn’t the only recent poll of the state showing him ahead, either. A few days ago, ARG had Sanders up three, 47/44.

The man simply could not be more popular among Democrats there:

Hillary’s own numbers are strong, 66/29 on honesty(!) and 76/21 on caring about the problems of people like you, but Sanders’s are stratospheric. Even among moderate/conservative Democrats, Sanders scores higher on whether he “shares your values” (83/10) than Hillary does (68/28). Overall, her favorable rating is 74/21, which only Ted Cruz approaches at the moment among Republicans, but Sanders’s rating is … 87/3. Give the old socialist credit. With numbers like this, Berniemania is more easily explained as genuine excitement for him than as rejection of Clinton. And while he trails her badly on foreign policy and terrorism, he leads her by 12 points when Iowa Democrats are asked which candidate would be better for the economy. Remember that the next time the media tells you how far towards the fringe *Republicans* have moved.

Same deal in New Hampshire, where Sanders now leads 53/39 if you can believe it. That’s not a wild outlier either: Three polls taken in the state over the last month have had him up by 13 or 14 points (although several others have had him leading or trailing narrowly). Granted, New Hampshire is his backyard, but the numbers there aren’t much different from Iowa. The man is simply phenomenally popular within his own party.

If Sanders is polling this well, imagine how a younger, more prominent Democrat like Elizabeth Warren running the same share-the-wealth campaign would be doing right now. Two of Sanders’s few weak points against Clinton are his deficit with women voters and his perceived unelectability. He actually leads among women in New Hampshire, per Monmouth, but in Iowa he trails by 16 points among that group. (He leads overwhelmingly among men there, 61/30.) In terms of electability, despite being fantastically popular among Iowa Dems, just 68 percent think Sanders would have a good chance of winning the general election versus 85 percent who think so of Hillary. My hunch is that Warren, by dint of her age, her stature among progressives, and her ability to neutralize Hillary’s “first woman president” shtick, would actually be running ahead of Sanders if she had jumped in early to fill the role of far-left challenger to the Clintons. We’ll never know. But if Hillary does end up winning this race, that’s something to consider. Looking at today’s numbers, she really could have gotten Obama’d again this cycle, possibly worse than she did in 2008.

Here’s Sanders addressing the electability issue a few days ago. By the way, Hillary is momentarily way, way, way ahead in South Carolina, which she’s hoping will be her firewall if things go sideways in Iowa and New Hampshire. That stands to reason: Iowa is a caucus state, where passionate activists like the ones backing Sanders have more influence, and New Hampshire is next door to Sanders’s home state, so South Carolina is well positioned for a Hillary comeback. But we’ll see. Those SC polls will tighten a lot if Sanders wins the first two states. If he can figure out a way to get black voters on his side, he’ll have a shot.

It looks like the Dems in Iowa are more eager to endorse communism (Sanders) than wakadoodle corruption (Hillary Clinton).

The Midwest does have it’s history, especially as to Iowa and Illinois, of being enraptured with communism known by a variety of names but generally described as “gimmee that fair share” collectivism.

I think Bernie is substantially more electable than Mrs. Clinton. First of all, Bernie is running as a populist-type candidate, while Mrs. Clinton comes across as robotic, fake, scripted, and hellbent on pandering; her candidacy is filled to the brim with scandal, corruption, lies, dishonesty, and self-absorbed behavior. Any Democrat will have to deal with the Obama cloud hanging over his/her head anyway, so the Democrats might as well take a chance with the seemingly-sincere, left-wing populist who was never a part of the Obama administration, instead of the intensely-disliked Mrs. Clinton who has a record of disaster in anything she’s done.

But according to Billy Jeff–a.k.a., “The First Black President”–the South Carolina primary only went to Obama in 2008 (and Jesse Jackson in 1988!) because of black people. So, if black voters in South Carolina support the wife of The First Black President, is that not racism according to the Big Dog himself?

Romney/Ryan needed 64 electoral votes to reach 270. Florida+Ohio+Virginia combined for 60 electoral votes. FL was decided by less than 1%, OH by fewer than 3%, and Virginia by fewer than 4%. The significant turnout among black voters probably accounted for Obama’s wins in OH and VA, and even in 2008 (height of Obamamania) the state of Florida was competitive. Those three plus NH would have sealed the deal for Romney/Ryan.

Quite some time ago, I was convinced Hillary would not be the Democrat nominee in 2016 and I believe I made comments to that effect on this blog. Her campaign looked weak and sclerotic, and she herself was a terrible candidate. She was mired in scandals and seemed loaded down with baggage.

By the first Democrat debate, I’d about talked myself out of that theory. she seemed to have done what she needed to do to put Sanders away and secure the nomination for herself.

But he was never supposed to get anywhere near the lead on anything, and now he has a massive lead New Hampshire.”

141 years between the two. The White House will be converted to a hospice.

Why not ? It has been a junior high the last 8.

I have thought since last summer that Sanders was favored to beat Clinton, and I still think so. He’s been polling well against her despite the fact that he’s still largely unknown to the nation. Many of the people who will cast primary votes for Dem nominee in the next couple of months still don’t know who he is, or if they do, they don’t know much about him. She’s about to be one-upped again, but this time, she won’t be able to blame it on her opponent’s race or youthful appeal.

I think democrats are suffering from Trump envy. They have been watching as all the excitement has been on Trump and they desperately want their own outsider. Sanders is benefiting from Hillary’s unlikeability. They know she is a corrupt influence peddler and so they are flocking to Sanders to be their Trump. They want an outsider and despite being in congress for 20+ years they think because he calls himself an independent, well, that’s good enough. Also, I expect Hillary to fight back, she has the money, staff, and connections to dig up the dirt on Bernie and she most certainly will.

She’s still got the woman card

Didn’t read entries so excuse this pontification if it has been expressed.

I expect if (a big IF) Bernie SocialSanders wins both Iowa AND New Hampshire, the LSM will down play it because after that he will get skunked.
If she wins south of the Mason-Dixon, I’ll stop drinking bourbon.

IAW (in accordance with) the Politricks memo, Hillary! is the defacto WINNER, no matter what happens.
Judicial proceedings be dammed, … Run with the subpoena wrapped around your neck they’ll say.

And the Trools will grease up, bend over and grab their ankles.
