New Poll Shows Clinton, Sanders Tied As Hillary's Lead Crumbles

Clinton versus Sanders (Image Source)

A new opinion poll from the highly regarded Quinnnipac University polling organisation shows iHllary Clinton's lead in the contest to become the Democratic Party Presidential nomineee has almost completely evaporated. From having a lead of around twenty five to thirty points in early December, the numbers are now 44% Clinton, 42% Sanders, which is such a narrow gap it is within the margin of error. Thus the only two contenders left in the race are in a statistical tie.

Where did it all go wrong for Hillary. She was the Democrats anointed one, considered the biggest certainty since Pam Geller was nominated for the 'Liberal hate figure of the year'. Unfortunately, the more voters see of Hillary and Bernie head-to-head, the more people like Bernie. He comes across as honest, principled and genuinely concerned about the way things are going in the USA, and apparently that counts for more than Hillary's hopey changey noises. People have had enough of hope and change after Obama, the peacemaker and joybringer turned out to be the neolib, warmongering, death dealing status quo candidate. People are starting to understand the system has morphed into a rigged fraud in which the 'Shadow Government' nominate the next president and the system persuades all the contenders to take a dive (and discredits those who refuse). People understand that Sanders really, desperately wants to change things and much as most Americans disagree with a lot of Sanders’ policies (his economic statism for example), they like the fact that he despises the status quo as much as they do and unlike Donald Trump, he despises it for the right reasons.

I have said before Bernie Sanders is doing well for the same reasons as ultra left candidate Jeremy Corbyn won the UK Labour Party leadership, for the same reasons the conservative - nationalist Front National won the popular vote in french regional elections (though they were stitched up by the establishment and denied power); as the Right wing Sweden Democrats won enough votes to be part of a power sharing coalition, but were stitched up by a dirty deal between traditional opponents the Social democrats and Christian Democrats, the same reasons as left wing Podemos in Spain and Syriza in Greece won election victories; they are all anti - establishment. Sanders is a revolutionary-type candidate, while Clinton is running to be the latest in a line of puppets operated by Wall Street and oligarchical interests.

So as the American public starts to understand the political realities of twenty first century America, people are coming around. If Sanders wins the nomination it will be simply amazing. But it will also reflect a trend that is growing throughout the developed world.
