The more people see Hillary and Bernie head-to-head, the more people like Bernie. People are starting to get it. They understand the system has morphed into a rigged fraud, and they understand that Sanders really, desperately wants to change it. As much as I disagree with a lot of Sanders’ solutions (his economic statism for example), he clearly despises the status quo, and for many of the right reasons. Sanders is a revolutionary-type candidate, while Clinton is running to be just another placeholder for Wall Street and oligarchical interests.
So as the American public starts to understand its choices, people are coming around. The Hill reports the following as relates to the shocking results of Quinnipiac’s latest poll:
Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has dramatically cut into the nationwide lead of primary rival Hillary Clinton, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.
The poll released Friday finds Clinton leading the race with 44 percent support, compared to 42 percent support for Sanders, within the survey’s margin of error.
The last iteration of the poll in December had Clinton leading Sanders nationwide by a 61-30 point margin.
The poll also finds that Sanders matches up better with top Republican primary candidates than Clinton.
In head-to-head matchups the Vermont senator leads GOP front-runner Donald Trump by 10 points, edges Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) by 4 points and ties Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
While Clinton still tops Trump by 5 points, she ties Cruz and trails Rubio by 7 points.
The poll also finds that Clinton has a 17-point unfavorable rating, only besting Trump in that category, who has a 25-point unfavorable rating.
