Bernie Sanders Polls: After Trailing Hillary Clinton By 30 Points In Illinois, Sanders Now Leads

Source: Inquisitr

Bernie Sanders is nearing Hillary Clinton in Illinois, with the Vermont Senator aiming to pull off another upset win like last week’s surprising victory in Michigan.

The Sanders campaign...pulled off the upset victory, propelling his campaign forward to critical upcoming votes in Ohio, Florida, and Illinois.

New polls released Sunday show that Bernie Sanders may be close to pulling off another victory in Illinois. Like in Michigan, Hillary Clinton once dominated polling in this state... But much of that polling comes from before Sanders pulled off the Michigan upset, and new data suggests that her lead may have all but evaporated.

A CBS News poll found that Bernie Sanders now leads 48 percent to 46 percent.

This good news on Illinois follows analysis by the University of Virginia Center for Politics analysis predicting Sanders wins in Ohio and Missouri:

30. Not really

Everyone now expects Bernie to win Illinois, so if Hillary wins it's not upset.

Hopes, not expects. Most polls probably still show her in the lead.

He only needs to win every remaining primary by +12% or more, and he is there.

8. but, but, it will be "just like" a BS come from behind victory

 

should HC manage to hang on.

That seems to be the newest rationale from her supporters and seems to explain in no small measure why they support her. After all, making up 30 points is "just like" making up a couple, ain't it?

9. Hillary's campaign is trying SO HARD to lower the bar of expectations that she's over corrected and

dampening her already sub-zero enthusiasm.

10. there may well be some merit to that

 

the bs her supporters are spreading pretty thick in response to these gains by Bernie reek of desperation, and are a poor facade to obscure or diminish their apprehension -- which is a great enthusiasm killer

15. The polls are so consistently wrong in Hillary's favor that her campaign is worried a narrow win in

Missouri, Illinois, or Ohio was be reported as a come-from-behind performance by Sanders so she's trying to claim underdog status so she can claim that losing a 25% lead in the polls but squeaking out a virtual tie type win on election day is still a big victory.

Hillary's campaign is rightfully concerned because she'll win the majority of delegates on Tuesday but then she hits a 4-week stretch of the calendar where she'll lose states and delegates consistently, and the dominant news stories will be about the wheels coming off of her campaign.

Starting April 10, the primary will shift to the final phase. If Sanders can gain momentum during the stretch from March 16 to April 9, the last stretch may tip in Sanders' favor. If Sanders cannot build up enough momentum, the final states may tip in Hillary's favor.

17. indeed, the polling has been appalling

 

I think your analysis is pretty hard to dispute. The illusion of invincibility has been shattered, so she has to wing it by manipulating an expectations game over which she has limited input and control.

I can imagine Hillary on the phone all night everynight trying to convince the lobbyists to stay with her super pac and that she is going to win. I have no doubt they will all go to trump. They will be on the side of whoever is ahead (except Bernie who scares the heck out of them because his administration won't be bought out and will actually try Wall Street for their crimes AND put them in prison.)

32. This sealed it for me

Sander's message is legitimate. I came across this video last night, and the rest of Bernie country needs to see this. I wept as I watched this-it was my story this guy was telling--and millions of other peoples' stories. The Libertarian politics that we now call Democratic have kept poor people poor and made millionaires into billionaires. If you know anyone in the not yet voted states, feel free to share this.

13. Better get ready

If Bernie wins, I'll work for him. If Hillary wins, I'll work for her.
Trump is going to become a hurricane of hate and I don't think Democrats are prepared. Republicans chuckled when Trump entered the race...ha ha, figuring he'd be gone any day. What a mistake.

The Democratic Party is disorganized, unwieldy, unfocused, but it's what we have. It's time now to organize, focus, and unite.

No more of this, Hillary hate, no more of the Bernie's too old, too this, too that. Each of them has something to offer, find the positive.
I honestly believe, if we don't see a major move to unite the Democratic Party that Donald Trump will be the next president. Excuse me, this country's first fascist leader. I'm really getting concerned about reading about a Trump rally and how he manipulates and manages the crowds.
How? How is it that people hear him and they think they've heard a brilliant leader?
It boggles the mind.
But it's time to stop shaking our heads and it's time to work together.

22. It can't happen here is REAL sparkly unicorn thinking.

Of course it can happen here, by which I mean a right-wing political movement that can ascend to power in the USA. This is nothing new and nothing to be sanguine about.

Trump may not be "brilliant" like Hitler was but these are different times.

Like we saw with those asshole ranchers and the "patriots" who liberated a Federal complex, there are plenty of guns in this country, and plenty of assholes ready to use them.

Take this seriously, because it as serious as it gets, at least up to this point.

Tomorrow can bring other horrors.

Polls: Trump Ahead in Florida, Illinois; Kasich Leads in Ohio

by Mark Murray

Donald Trump leads the Republican presidential field in the March 15 primary states of Florida and Illinois, while John Kasich holds the edge in his home state of Ohio, according to three new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls.

On the Democratic side, meanwhile, Hillary Clinton leads Bernie Sanders in all three states, although she's just narrowly ahead in Illinois.

. .......................


......In the Democratic race, Clinton is ahead of Sanders among likely primary voters by 27 points in Florida, 61 percent to 34 percent; by 20 points in Ohio, 58 percent to 38 percent; but by just six points in Illinois, 51 percent to 45 percent.

29. I keep wondering about likely

voters, mobile phones and independents. Aren't likely voters those who have voted in at least one previous election? Turnout was low in 2012 and I don't think many millennials voted that year. Now we have another group coming of voting age. /don't you think the polls are inaccurate for these reasons? What are your thoughts? Can they poll people who do not have landlines? Do they poll Independents? Thanks.
