    Troubling Exit Poll Data for Hillary ?

    She has some things she need to clean up. Here are some numbers that might keep her and Bill up at night:

    When Bernie first announced he was running, a poll of likely New Hampshire voters revealed the following preference: Hillary 62% Bern 18%

    Last night : Bern 60% Hillary 38% Folks, that a 66 point turnaround!!!


    From exit polling last night :

    Women Voters - Bernie beat her by 11% (That's not just young women but all women)

    Honesty : When it came to the honesty issue , Bernie beat her 91% to 5% !!!!!

    I still think my guy has a long uphill battle to beat her, but it's not totally out of the realm of possibility. She has shown she can snatch defeat from what should be victory.
    Hillary should do well in SC with the larger minority electorate. Maybe she will gain back some momentum after that. But she has some work to do to improve upon some of these numbers.

    The only demographics that she won last night were those making over 200 K a year and women over 65.

    One ex- George H.W. Bush aide said over the weekend that Bernie would win the nomination. I disagree but Ms Clinton better clean up some of these numbers or she may feel the Bern come summer!


    Do you think she's in trouble or is this just a minor setback? Need I remind you that the Madame Secretary has NEVER improved her numbers in any election she has ever run in, including her Senate races and her Presidential run in '08.

    I still think she is the heavy favorite over Bernie and a strong favorite to beat Trump but she has some work to do.

    I think she has to transform her campaign into endurance mode from sprint mode. Righties seem to think votes swinging toward Bernie is an indictment on Hillary and not support for him, but I disagree. I believe Bernie is a candidate that has struck a nerve like Trump, and people are saying this awful socialist message doesn't sound so bad.
    I don't know how she stops the momentum. If she doesn't win Nevada, she is up a creek.

    I don't know if NH tells us anything about either candidate. SC will help make it clearer.

    She's not a strong favorite to beat anyone.

    Not likeable and not trustworthy are a lethal combination, even against a clown like Bern.

    I think the Democratic National Party and MSNBC will do everything possible to keep her from losing.

    They've already proven that over the past year. Iowa left no doubt.
