Once Ahead by 60 Points, Clinton National Lead over Sanders Has Dwindled to Zero

"Though Clinton led Sanders by sixty points when he entered the campaign less than a year ago, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released Monday shows that lead has been "all but eliminated" with only two percentage points now separating the Democratic candidates.

As the Journal reports, "The result continues a steady narrowing of the gap between the two Democratic candidates since January, when Mrs. Clinton led by 25 points, 59% to 34%. And it is a far cry from the way the race looked when Mr. Sanders began his campaign last year: In June 2015, a Journal/NBC poll found Mrs. Clinton leading by 60 percentage points, 75% to 15%."

Conducted between April 10-14, with a margin of error of +/-5.3 percent, the latest poll reveals a virtual tie and offers a stunning look at how far the Sanders campaign has come against a candidate that many considered "inevitable":

1. Delegates

The campaign was over March 12th or sooner.

Hillary knows how to lead, Hillary knows how to get things done, Hillary knows how to win a 2016 campaign and Hillary is who will be our nominee.

Not only is she ahead in popular vote, she's extremely ahead in delegates.

Delegates are how you win and Hillary Rodham Clinton leads the winning campaign.

5. Or....

A representative democracy works with delegates.

And it's been that way a long time.

11. "Miss Leading"

She certainly is a good liar. But her slips are showing.

15. Typo

i think you meant "Hillary knows how to win a 1996 campaign"

She and her supporters are belligerently stuck in the last century, and that is gonna hurt us this November.

We need a fiber optic president for a marijuana legal, scalable fusion-ready world... and we're being sold a dial-up drug warrior who likes coal and fracking.

12. Who will support her if she wins?

It seems the more people get to see of her the more they dislike her.

That's not a good omen for somebody who wants to be President. Do her supporters even care?

Do they want her to seize power even if she loses the popular vote? That's also a very bad omen.

14. About 65 to 70% of Democrats. That's it.

Far short of what is needed to win. Very few indies and almost zero republicans.

8. I think we will too. If we don't there will be no major dem party. I will be leaving

 

and many more will be. The only way for Bernie to lose is voter suppression and unelected delegate corruption which I a positive will end the DNC.

10. You can't kick it out if you stay. The only way to kick it out is reject it and leave. They are

 

counting on Dems to stay and unite to fight the big evil Republicans.

A mass exodus is the only thing that will make that party re-think itself.
