Poll: Sanders Beating Clinton by 27 Points in New Hampshire

Clinton’s Democratic presidential rival, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, has increased his lead over her in New Hampshire. Just weeks before the primary, Sanders leads Clinton by 27 points—60 percent to 33 percent. Speaking in Iowa Tuesday, Sanders said Clinton is no longer the "inevitable candidate" for the Democratic nomination.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: "When I began the campaign, people said, 'Well, you're running against an inevitable candidate. Secretary Clinton is the inevitable candidate of the Democratic Party. You might be able to, you know, raise some good issues, but you can’t win.’ Well, when we started, we were in 3 percent in the polls. We were 50 points behind. Today, the inevitable candidate does not look quite so inevitable as she did eight-and-a-half months ago."

Meanwhile, Sanders is facing criticism for saying last week he opposed reparations for slavery. Author Ta-Nehisi Coates published a rebuke, writing, "Sanders says the chance of getting reparations through Congress is 'nil,' a correct observation which could just as well apply to much of the Vermont senator’s own platform. ... [I]f this is the candidate of the radical left—then expect white supremacy in America to endure well beyond our lifetimes and lifetimes of our children."
