    These numbers are simply astounding.

    However, all is not lost: Clinton does better with likely Democratic primary voters who are age 60 and older, so at least she's getting the old geezer vote.

    This is a devastating report. Her numbers will get even worse after tonights debate.

    FEEL THE BERN!

    Bernie is really making Hillary squirm. He feels the momentum from his Iowa victory going in to NH. The wind is at his back. He's got the mojo bubbling over.

    Bernie is Mr. Mojo Risin'

    Actually I think it's the other way around.

    And I thought the GOP was going to have all the excitement.

    I will laugh my butt off if the DNC puts up a devout socialist and quasi communist sympathizer for President.

    Don't know whether to laugh or cry.

    Lol, everyone knows Bernie will win NH. He has an uphill battle in Nevada and SC, though. He just doesn't appeal to minorities.

    My prediction:

    Iowa - Hillary
    NH - Bernie
    Nevada - Hillary
    South Carolina - Hillary

    I think a lot of people know Hillary will get the nomination. I mean, just looking at the numbers, I just don't see Bernie winning the nomination.

    Sorry Bernie fans, after Super Tuesday, Hillary is pulling away with this. There's no clear path for him to win.

    Yeah. He'll have fun in NH and any college town USA, but that will be the end of it. A lot of people may want bigger government, but Bernie is proposing something even a lot of die hard liberals can't stomach.

    Basically.

    I think a month from now, even Bernie supporters will come to the realization that Hillary pretty much has this in the bag. Funny thing is, Obama won the same 3 out of 4 states that I am predicting Hillary to win. I guess we will see if I am right in a few weeks. So far, I am 1 for 1.

    I am just curious as to who she will choose as her VP heading into the general election. She has the option of nominating her husband as her VP. Wow. I never thought about that until now.

    Edit: Nevermind - ""He would be good, but he's not eligible, under the Constitution. He has served his two terms and I think the argument would be as vice president it would not be possible for him to ever succeed to the position -- at least that's what I've been told."

    If Bernie does not win big the DNC will rig the results someway somehow.

    It has to be an indisputable victory by at least five points.

    If Bernie was smart, he'd skip NH and go straight to NV or SC, then come back to NH. He's so far ahead in HN, he could let Hillary have a few points and focus on taking the next state. That'll start screwing up Hillary's game plan and he could take two that'll give him even more wind.

    I fear what will happen in this country if Sanders secures the Democratic nomination. I feel moderates will run for the hills and the progress made in the last 8 years will slow if not slightly reverse.

    This is, of course, why she went on the attack so much last night. There's been a very noticeable progression from her nicey-nicey attitude in the first debates to her much more sarcastic demeanor now.

    And apparently she's allowed to question how realistic Bernie's ideas are, but he's not allowed to question her closeness to Wall Street.

    So what difference do you see between Bernie and Hillary?
    What progress would you like to see intact from the last 8 years and how would Bernie slow them?
    --- Post Merged, Feb 5, 2016 ---
    Last time Hillary went on the attack, it backfired. Every time Bernie gets attacked, he raised more money. 4th qtr money was very close. Hillary had to do a cash run in the middle of IA and Bernie's support spiked.

    Hillary has a tightrope she has to walk and she's not nearly as smooth as Bill was.

    It's not a matter of the difference between Hillary and Bernie, it's a matter of the difference between Hillary and the Republican nominee. If the Republicans get it right and Marco Rubio becomes the candidate, Bernie won't stand a chance, IMHO. That scares me.

    But you were concerned over Bernie getting into the general, and this will have the moderates running for the hills. Why would they do that over Bernie and not Hillary? How will Obama's work not go forward with Bernie and will with Hillary?

    Oh, I don't know. I suspect that in the Democratic headquarters office, there is a large Post-it note that says "No matter who the Democratic nominee is, if the Republicans nominate Marco Rubio, our vice president candidate will be Julian Castro."

    Wall street used to be ok, now it's become a casino and a corrupt one at that. The concept of an investment based economy isn't bad, but it doesn't help middle America as much as it used to.

    "Democratic Socialist" - BIG DIFFERENCE.

    Also, look up socialism - it's where the people profit from their work. Now if you want the current system where you work for less so the CEO and do-nothing stock owners can make more at your expense...

    Here's a definition, took 0.62 seconds to find:

    a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole

    - really, socialism is THAT evil? :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    You're free to look up "Democratic Socialism" - you're not a lazy American and/or stock owner, are you? (Note some sarcasm in that, since we've all heard the L-word used wrongly from others before, so putting in a new angle might be interesting...)
    --- Post Merged, Feb 5, 2016 ---
    Nice detailed reasoning, but most news articles are saying how she is feeling nervous and not him. Or is that the reason you're thinking of, the anti-business liberal corporate media trying to make him look nervous at her expense? Why? Because they're anti-business or will help let a "pro-business" Republican win? ;) And nothing is wrong with business by default, the issues are more social and how people are treated being the core issues.

    It's amazing how defensive Bernie supporters are. It's like they'll snap at any moment or something.

    Quite the angry bunch they are.

    Fantasyland has a low defense budget.

    National Quinnipiac poll:

    Hillary 44%
    Bernie 42%

    The Clinton campaign is now in full-panic mode.
