Clinton no longer leading 2:1 in SC primary

I posted a week ago about Clinton opening better than a 2:1 lead in South Carolina, which is the 3rd primary after Iowa and NH. New CNN poll has changed those numbers:

Among Democrats, Hillary Clinton has a 45-point lead over Bernie Sanders, 65% to 21%. Martin O'Malley, the third candidate in the race, has 3%.

Now a 3:1 lead, with Clinton having locked up virtually every major endorsement in the state (Minority Whip Congressman Jim Clyburn, all three living Democratic ex-Governors, large majority of legislators, etc.)

Ready for everyone to weigh in on why this is irrelevant since some City Council member in Smallville just endorsed Sanders.

Trump not even elected yet...

and he is already screwing the taxpayers of SC:

Donald Trumpís plan to foreclose on a failed North Charleston business co-founded by one of his sons was approved by a judge Monday while the presidential candidate was traveling to the area for a campaign rally.
The foreclosure plan is a complex real estate financing move that could potentially allow the senior Trump to profit from a $3.65 million loan that son Donald Trump Jr. and two other borrowers personally guaranteed to finance a building products company called Titan Atlas Manufacturing but did not repay.
Taxpayers are among the most likely losers in the deal, because the companyís unpaid state and federal taxes and other government payments totaling more than $96,000 can be recouped only if the winning foreclosure bid is high enough to cover nearly $5 million in secured debts that are first in line.

I know that what he is doing is technically legal, but this is how he thinks the free enterprise system is supposed to work. I would love to see the asshole have to actually work and draw a check to get by sometime. Same as W Bush - never realized that it was an accident of birth and not his business skills that made him rich.

45 to 1

Story tonight on NPR relates that Clinton has a 45 to 1 edge over Sanders in endorsements by elected officials - local, state and federal level. Don't ask me to prove the info is correct; I am assuming NPR would not declare that as a fact if it weren't so.
I would love to see the spin of how this equates to Bernie "will" or "can" win. I probably wouldn't be able to follow the circuitous logic since most of the more rabid folks in that camp are on my Ignore list.
45 to 1 is a staggering figure.
