#HillaryClinton’s strong national lead over +Bernie Sanders is essentially gone and, instead, the Democratic race is incredibly close, according to a national #QuinnipiacPoll released today.

Clinton received 44 percent of support while Sanders can boast about 42 percent, his highest support in any national poll to date.

The former secretary of state's 31 point lead over the Vermont senator in December has been fallen to only 2 points.

+Amy Rothstein I agree that both parties have been bought, but I will disagree with any statement that doesn't put that on top of the problem list. Anything else we can count on checks and balances to keep in check. But buying candidates isn't limited to the executive branch.

People predicted it would be close between #HillaryClinton and her opponent +Bernie Sanders at the #IowaCaucus - but not so close the winner would be decided by the flip of a coin.

This is, however, exactly what happened.
This random chance method was used to choose between the two leading Democrat candidates in Iowa - but it could happen in the UK, too

A  SPECTER  IS  HUNTING  UNITED STATES.  
The Bernie Sanders'Platform.  All the powers of the oligarch's financial system have entered into alliance to exorcise this specter:
The Obama's administration, the republican congress ,the corporate media, Wall Street , NSA and the Neo-liberal$ Democrats ,those who love T.P.P. ... Zionist  AIPAC , ALEC...
Where is the opposition that has not branding reproach of populism and socialism to the Bernie Sanders list of Demands...
But in reality the Sanders'Platform is nothing more than the peoples' demands that for more than 2 decades has been ignored, while the 1% of the financial parasite CLA$$ are been getting richer and richer , the working class and the middle class are being crushed , election after election... since Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton the Bushes and Obama...
All of them , as candidates, spoke for the people but , then in government , side and serve the Financial Parasite CLA$$ of Wall Street.
Let's push this campaign above the same standards of promises later forgotten or betrayed  and go for REAL CHANGE..

Two doctors who met privately with #HillaryClinton during the 1993 health reform debate say she agreed that #singlepayer #healthcare would be good for Americans. Their recollections raise questions about both the motive and the sincerity of Clinton’s recent assault on Democratic presidential rival +Bernie Sanders for supporting such a system.

Until Clinton’s pivot, the accepted Democratic view was that single-payer was the best solution in theory, but that it was politically unrealistic. Clinton’s new critiques, by contrast, are an attempt to make Sanders’ single-payer proposals sound costly and destructive.
Clinton's previous comments raise questions about both the motive and the sincerity of her recent assault on Democratic presidential rival Bernie Sanders.

If it gets full implementation the stock brokers and insurance salespeople will have to retrain to civil engineers to build a fully functioning infrastructure for a full employed workforce. They can do it! I know they are hard "workers".

Sanders stands at 61% support, up slightly from the 57% he held in a late January CNN/WMUR poll conducted before he and Clinton divided Iowa caucusgoers almost evenly on Monday night. Clinton holds 30%, down a tick from the 34% she held before the caucuses. Both changes are within the poll's margin of sampling error.

#Sanders2016
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders continues to hold a wide lead over Hillary Clinton among likely New Hampshire primary voters, according to a new CNN/WMUR tracking poll conducted entirely after the Iowa caucuses.

#IowaCaucus

Clinton’s lucky quarter: Democratic frontrunner wins 6 coin tosses in narrow Iowa Caucus victory -- https://www.rt.com/usa/330990-clinton-coin-toss-iowa/

The gods were certainly smiling on Hilary Clinton as the Democrat presidential candidate won SIX coin tosses to help her edge past rival Bernie Sanders in the Iowa Caucus and take first blood in the party's nomination race.
@Snowden I mean, winning six straight coin tosses is just a coincidence, right?? No way was that rigged. It's not obvious AT ALL... Abhijeet. 3h3 hours ago. Abhijeet @abhic4ever. @Snowden. Ahmet Arıkan · 3h3 hours ago. Ahmet Arıkan @Ahmetfree. @Snowden how s moscow man, too cold?

+David G from a cursory check of that election cycle - there was more to it than just the 'super delegates' going against him ... there were reasons for that ... in the age of the internet - if she wins by super delegates alone - she will lose A LOT of Dems in the general ...

Sen +Bernie Sanders called Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad a “butcher,” but expressed he didn’t support arming a moderate rebel force in the country, which has sunk into a civil war that has claimed the lives of more than 250,000 people since 2011. The conflict also has opened the door for Islamist terror groups including ISIS to seek power and spread chaos.

“It’s hard to know who's fighting who and if you give arms to this guy, it may end up in #ISIS' hand the next day,” Sanders said. “We all know that.”

Hillary was a bit more cryptic about how the US should handle #Syria. She was also careful not to undermine the Commander in Chief.

#DemDebate
Foreign policy was a hot topic during last night’s Democratic Presidential Debate. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders both discussed how to address the terror-ridden hot spot of Syria and how to deal with a more aggressive Russia.

Democratic presidential hopeful U.S. Sen. +Bernie Sanders on Saturday called on #Michigan Gov. #RickSnyder to resign for his administration’s failure to deal with a lead-poisoning crisis that has sickened thousands of children in Flint, Michigan.

“There are no excuses. The governor long ago knew about the lead in Flint’s water. He did nothing. As a result, hundreds of children were poisoned. Thousands may have been exposed to potential brain damage from lead. Gov. Snyder should resign,” Sanders said.
