OMG Hillary's still ahead in latest national poll

In the latest Quinnepac national poll, HIllary only slipped 10 points since the last national poll!

Biden and Bernie both picked up 5 points. Hillary's lead on Bernie slid from 38 points to 23 points this month.

Sanders still has room for growth with evidence in the favorability numbers. The don't know enough is only down 3 points from 42 to 39. Apparently everyone knows Hillary.

The poll included a word game for 3 candidates. Speaking of knowing her, Hillary's first 3 entries are both unflattering and loud. Her 3 top entries were recorded more than 100 times. None of Trump's top 3 broke 100. I wish they had played the first word game with Bernie.

Seems like Bernie is making solid gains nationwide.

1. Two great candidates....

 

Hillary and Bernie.

O'Malley is also good. If Biden joins, we'll have 4 terrific candidates.

4. 2 GREAT candidates?

REALLY? Without O'Malley? O'Malley is GREAT, and it's about time for DUers to recognize it.

22. Ahead by

So with made up numbers because I don't have them handy:
Clinton 50%, Obama 30% = up by 20.

8. I'll kick it!

 

The problem we are witnessing, I'm not sure if it's been suggested yet, could be called "Hillary Fatigue".

What gave her such high numbers originally, name recognition and familiarity, are turning against her.

Contrastingly, Sanders is a fresh face, with a fresh approach and as more see him more love him.

All this despite the MSM refusal to give him airtime.

Hillary's "strength" has become her weakness. People have Hillary Fatigue.

9. 15 points in just one month?

Oh, she HAS to be talking de ja vu at this point. Fifteen points in one month is what politicians can only dream of and here we're making it a reality. Fifteen points in one month is YUGE!

17. CBS just headlined it for Sunday morning news and their Beltway show.

 

"Lead down to 7%" is the stinger. CBS barely framed it as an Iowa result.

Hillary Clinton looks OK in the video clip they show. She doesn't have the spirit of a Heidi Heidtkamp (D-ND) but fairly she's doing a good job connecting to her audience.

Day comes that Hillary Clinton comes in behind Sanders: Katy. bar the door....

11. These numbers probably won't change a lot more,

 

UNTIL Bernie Sanders wins Iowa and New Hampshire.

THEN those national numbers are likely to change more dramatically.

18. Not until the big tilt on September 22nd when the Anti-Trump, Pope Francis

 

arrives with his big ticket messages: income inequality, political freedom, global warming, the evils of unrestricted capitalism.

It's easy for Lefties to complain about this pope's positions on abortion and birth control and male priesthood. Not relevant here. Not at all. Abortion will remain legal in America. These are not among the big ticket items for the 2016 election.

Pope Francis is on the same page with Bernie Sanders for the most of what does matter. Pope Francis is surely the Anti-Trump.

That papal visit will influence 70,000,000 active Catholics. 20% of the population.

Who's closer to Pope Francis? Hillary or Bernie? Where is all this going?
