Ready For Panic: Sanders Pulls Within 8 Points of Grandma in Wisconsin

Posted by on Jun 08, 2015 at 8:01 am

While some wag their finger at Republicans warning them to go easy on the corrupt Mrs. Clinton, Democrats should instead concern themselves witht he fact the nutcase Bernie Sanders is already surging.

Wisconsin Democrats might not be ready for Hillary Clinton, as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) finished just 8 points behind Clinton in a new Badger State straw poll.

Clinton finished with 49 percent of voters at the state party convention, with Sanders in second place with 41 percent of the vote. Vice President Joe Biden and former Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-Md.) tied at third with 3 percent of the vote. Former Sen. Jim Webb (D-Va.) followed with under 2 percent, and former Gov. Lincoln Chafee (D-R.I.) closed out the poll with 1 percent.

The surprise showing is a boost for Sanders, who regularly polls about 40 percentage points behind Clinton in national poll and rarely finishes within striking distance to Clinton. It’s the closest he’s come to toppling Clinton at the polls, outside of a 9-point margin in a Gravis Marketing poll of Washington state voters.

National Republican Party leaders have taken to Twitter to tout the results, framing them as trouble for Clinton.

So we guess the New York Times will be reporting on the driving foibles on Sanders any day soon.
