According to a CNN report, Hillary's poll numbers are continuing to tank. Even without Biden in the race, she now trails Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire.
(CNN) Hillary Clinton trails Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders in the race for the Democratic nomination for president in New Hampshire, even if Vice President Joe Biden decides not to make a run for the White House, according to a new CNN/WMUR poll.Sanders has the backing of nearly half of those who say they plan to vote in the first-in-the-nation Democratic primary next year -- 46% support him -- while just 30% say they back Clinton. Another 14% say they would support Biden, 2% former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, 1% former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, and less than half of 1% back former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee or Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig.Clinton trails Sanders across most demographic groups, with broad gender and ideology divides bolstering Sanders' run. He holds 56% of male Democratic voters compared with just 20% who back her, while the two are much closer among women, 39% back Sanders, 37% Clinton. Likewise, Sanders holds a 56% to 30% lead among liberals, versus a 37% to 31% race among moderates.
While that's good news for Republicans who are likely to have an easier victory path without Clinton in the race, it's bad news for the country when an avowed socialist could end up as the Democratic candidate. Has America really gone that far down the left fork in the road? Is it too late to turn back now?
Well, at least a stealth socialist like Clinton is working her way towards becoming a non-factor. But, just like Jeb Bush, she can rely on the fact that it's still very early.
