Response to reformist2 (Original post)

Sun Feb 7, 2016, 11:52 AM

63. I disagree and would bet Bernie does too...

Bernie Sanders did exactly as well as he needed to do in Iowa. It absolutely doesn't matter whether he actually won or not. The delegate counts are minuscule and won't affect the outcome in the convention at all.

What matters is that he came out of Iowa with momentum. He is, according to everything I've read, going to take New Hampshire fairly easily.

Look what has happened since Iowa.

The Quinnipiac poll now shows him within the margin of error nationally against Clinton. Clinton is continuing to have to play defense. The media is now not ignoring Sanders. He just got his shot on SNL and looked pretty darn good according to what I've read. He is continuing to play offense, but is remaining true to his original message. Clinton seems to be floundering in terms of message. Her surrogates are beginning to sound almost insane (Madelaine Allbright is quoted as saying there's "special place in hell for women that don't support each other...". Clinton has now been forced to make a pledge to not ever cut Social Security benefits. Just as she was in the past forced to abjure the TPP and the Trans Canadian pipeline.

The Sander's campaign is just moving on. Much as it has done from the very beginning. Don't sweat it. Let Iowa recede in the rear view mirror.
