I mentioned earlier today that Sen. Bernie Sanders has been getting positive media coverage this week for relatively strong polling numbers and big crowds. More good news for the Sanders camp came in this morning, the Washington Post reports:
Shortly before Donald Trump began his extended, extemporaneous delineation of why Donald Trump is great and is running for president, NH1.com dropped a bombshell: The race for the Democratic nomination in New Hampshire is closer than anyone might have thought.
A poll from Suffolk University Political Research Center still has Hillary Clinton in the lead — but only by 10 points over Bernie Sanders. When we looked at this last week, Sanders was still upwards of 30 points back.
The poll’s internals suggest that Clinton’s support among men and among liberals might be weak points for her in the primary if it turns out to be more competitive than most analysts predict.
