Sanders surges in early-voting states

New CBS/YouGov polls today show Sanders surging in three of the early-voting states, with less than two months to go until the Iowa caucuses.

In New Hampshire, Sanders has extended his lead over Clinton to a whopping 14 points. He leads her 56 to 42 per cent.

In Iowa, Sanders and Clinton are in a statistical tie. The poll put Clinton at 50 per cent and Sanders at 45 per cent. The poll has a margin of error of 5.3 per cent.

In South Carolina, Clinton’s dominance over Senator Sanders is shrinking. Today’s poll shows that her lead over Sanders has shrunk by 11 per cent just over the past month. Secretary Clinton is currently polling at 67 per cent in the Palmetto State, while Sanders polls at 31 per cent.

These new polls should be encouraging to the Sanders campaign. A win the first two voting states of Iowa and New Hampshire could trigger a domino effect, and set him up to win other states.
