- 8-in-10 would be satisfied if he were the nominee
- Seven in 10 women under 45 voted for Sanders
- Fewer than half the New Hampshire Democrats polled find Clinton to be honest and trustworthy, a stark difference from Sanders.
- 40% say they'd like the next president to pursue more liberal policies than Obama, and Sanders carries more than 80% of their votes.
Other factors that weren't mentioned:
- An ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that most people would be the most comfortable and the least anxious with Bernie Sanders.
- An average of all the online polls (taken to date) shows that an overwhelming and vast majority of voters favored Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton.
- An average of all polls at Real Clear Politics shows 78% of Americans disapprove of Congress.
- Bernie Sanders has the highest approval rating of all members of Congress.
- But yet, so far most members of Congress have endorsed Hillary Clinton! Clearly our elected representatives are NOT doing the will of The People.
California Senator Dianne Feinstein made threats: "I think when someone starts to look into Bernie Sanders' record, sure, things change ... there are a lot of technical things that show a person's record that just haven't come out yet, and I think later on there is room for that." Virginia Senator Tim Kaine predicted the nomination fight would be all but over after all the results come in on Super Tuesday on March 1st. He said Clinton would compile a lead in delegates giving her a clear a path to prevail. Maryland Senato Ben Cardin: "Regardless of what happens in New Hampshire, I think the way that Secretary Clinton has organized her campaign, her talent, her message, that the nominating process and the close proximity of primaries coming up from now until June, give her the momentum she needs to get the nomination." Senator Chuck Schumer, D-New York, waved off CNN's question about the fallout from a loss and prolonged fight saying only as he walked into an elevator on Capitol Hill, "Hillary is going to be our nominee." (Yes, and may the popular vote be damned.)
According to Town Hall, the Democratic nomination process is rigged to give Hillary Clinton all the establishment delegates to elect her:
Last night, Senator Bernie Sanders crushed Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary, taking 60% of the vote to Clinton’s 38%. By simple logic, this should mean that Sanders receives more party delegates from the state than Clinton. In a shocking twist to the lopsided victory for Sanders, the opposite is true. Out of the 24 “pledged” delegates in New Hampshire, Sanders walks away with 13 while Clinton takes 9. Two delegates are not yet allotted to either candidate. But complicating the primary math are the additional delegates, “superdelegates,” that are shaping up to be Clinton’s insurance plan against the Sanders insurgency. Superdelegates are not decided by popular vote; they are Democrat party officials who can support whichever candidate they choose. (Yes, and may the popular vote be damned.)
The African-American Vote Could Decide the Fate of the Nation
The latest National poll from Reuters shows Bernie has been gradually catching up to Clinton, now being almost in a virtual tie. It appears that the African-American vote could easily put Bernie over the top. But...
Reuters (February 10, 2016) Bernie Sanders is due to have breakfast with Al Sharpton just hours after trouncing Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire. Sanders will meet with Sharpton in the same Harlem restaurant where he met with Obama during his 2008 presidential campaign. Clinton consistently polls better among African-American voters, and plays a crucial role in the Democratic race as it moves to South Carolina and other states that are more diverse than New Hampshire or Iowa. Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said, "It will be very difficult, if not impossible, for a Democrat to win the nomination without strong levels of support among African American and Hispanic voters. (African Americans and Hispanics comprise 35 percent of the Democratic party). He predicted Hillary Clinton will win the Democratic race in March when it quickly expands to 22 delegate-rich states with some of the largest minority and urban populations. But as black and Hispanic voters became more familiar with Sanders through televised presidential debates, they seemed to like him more, with his favorability ratings rising slightly among those groups over the last few months (Just as I said here)
Hillary Clinton: "That's what they offered."
In this short 2½ minute clip you see U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder say banks are too large and bankers can't be jailed or it could destroy the world economy. Then you see him in a campaign ad for Hillary Clinton. Then you see her at a recent campaign rally just after losing the New Hampshire primary saying no banks are too big to fail and no bankers are too powerful to jail. Then you hear her explain why she took money from bankers.

As his supporters waited for Bernie Sanders to deliver his victory speech last night, they chanted, "We don't need no super PAC; Bernie Sanders has got our back." And he took them up on their offer, asking them to go online and donate right away. "That's our fundraiser. Pretty quick!" he said. (So many supporters had rushed online that his ActBlue donation site had crashed!)
