No presidential candidate has won either party’s overall nomination after losing Iowa and New Hampshire since…Bill Clinton in 1992.
“Hillary Clinton to show more humour and heart, aides say“, said the New York Times over a story about how she planned to be more spontaneous and less stiff and cautious. Clinton scored a 64% favorable rating compared to 30% unfavorable, Sanders came in with 86% vs. 4% and Biden with an overwhelming 91% vs. 5%. A July survey by Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald showed Sanders to be at 33 percent, while Clinton held onto 52 percent of support. In the meantime, Sanders’ anti-establishment campaign has sought to project him as a viable option for Democrats.
The last few months, however, have seen Sanders climb steadily in the polls. He is organizing in four states – Colorado, Massachusetts, Minnesota and Vermont – with primaries or caucuses on March 1 that his team considers opportunities for victory. It’s as if she’s working to get our vote, but not our support.
The Sanders campaign is training tens of thousands of volunteers to organize in their communities, expanding its social media presence and erecting an online fundraising apparatus to fully exploit every spurt of excitement.
“The challenge ahead for the Sanders campaign is whether they can build a diverse coalition of supporters to compete for the Democratic nomination in later primary Southern states, such as Georgia, South Carolina and Florida“, Johnson said. According to Sanders, the son of an immigrant, “we are a nation of immigrants” and therefore should relax our immigration policies to allow for “hard-working families [to come]to the United States to create a brighter future for their children”. [The] biggest political mistake that he made is after his brilliant campaign in 2008, he basically said to the millions of people who supported him, “Thanks for getting me elected, I will take it from here”. Bill Clinton can win ugly.
Julia Barnes, Sanders’ state director in New Hampshire, said enthusiasm for Sanders is “issue based” and not reflective of an anti-Clinton current.
This is yet more disappointing news for the Clinton campaign. This finding is interesting because none of the candidates are addressing cybersecurity in a significant way, says V. Miller Newton, CEO and president of PKWARE. “Bernie has been very effective”. “He’s articulate, and he doesn’t go around knocking the other candidates”.
Sanders has gained popularity because he supports marginalized groups and actively endeavors to make all Americans equal despite their race, gender, or wealth.
Sanders himself downplayed the daily drip-drip of polling results.
