You Won’t Believe How Fast Hillary Clinton’s National Lead Is Slipping

Team GOP - January 15, 2016

Hillary Clinton, despite being the overwhelming favorite, lost the Democrat nomination to Barack Obama in 2008. Is the same thing poised to happen again this year?

As the weight of her secret email server, ethical questions surrounding the Clinton Foundation, and poor leadership as Secretary of State continue to dog her, voters seem to be turning away.

She’s desperately going after Bernie Sanders, a tactic that has backfired. Sanders has raised $1.4 million since she hypocritically attacked his healthcare plans, which she supported in 2008.

An in-the-know Democrat suggested to Politico that her campaign was in “pre-panic mode” because, “Apparently they see the bottom falling out in Iowa w/ dismal trend lines leading to the Caucus.” The Los Angeles Times said her campaign had the “taint of desperation.”  

It is hard to argue with that perspective based on this chart published by the Washington Post today, showing her pre-Iowa caucus national lead crumbling much faster than in 2008:

Her blue line is looking almost perfectly vertical at this point. As the Iowa and New Hampshire caucuses loom, she’s plummeting.

That’s really bad news for a frontrunner who was expected to win easily over a Vermont socialist.
