As of today (1/25/15) Bernie is ahead in Iowa according to RCP for the first time.


Bernie 46.3

Hillary 45.5

Martin 4.8

Kudos to all of those helping with the campaign in Iowa. We have one week left to campaign our asses off and make sure that Bernie walks away with a caucus victory. Canvass if you live in or near IA, phone bank if you don't. One more week.

Slew of new YouGov polls. Big gains for Sanders in IA, NH, and SC.


Iowa: Bernie 47 (+2), Hillary 46 (-4), Martin 5 (+1)

NH: Bernie 57 (+1), Hillary 38 (-4), Martin 5 (+1)

SC: Hillary 60 (-7), Bernie 38 (+7), Martin 0 (-2)

Results of canvassing in Conway, NH today.

It was my first time out on the trail, and the nerves were a little restless for the first few encounters with voters. All in all it went really well! Most people weren't home, but of the ones I managed to talk to the majority were Bernie supporters, a few Hillary supporters, and a few were undecided. We (my girlfriend and I) even managed to recruit a new volunteer that wasn't on our list. One guy did slam the door on us, but I guess that's just par for the course. If you haven't gotten out and done door to door campaigning yet I suggest you do it. It's actually pretty fun and the results are tangible. There's going to be a huge (YOOGE) get out the vote campaign the weekend leading up to the primary so if anybody has been interested in volunteering in NH that will be your chance.

I'm going to canvass in NH tomorrow!!

First time going out and interacting with potential voters in person. This is going to be a lot of fun. Phone bank! Canvass! Do whatever you can do reach out to people!

Clinton calls Bernie part of the 'establishment'


Washington (CNN)Hillary Clinton on Thursday sought to turn Sen. Bernie Sanders' "establishment" attack right back on him -- saying he served in Washington much longer than she did.

She also attacked his experience and fitness to lead the country, criticizing his suggestion that the U.S. should warm its relationship with Iran.

The Democratic front-runner told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room" that Sanders' charge that Planned Parenthood and the Human Rights Campaign support Clinton because they are all part of the establishment didn't make sense to her.

"I just don't understand what that means. He's been in Congress, he's been elected to office a lot longer than I have," Clinton said.

She noted she only served in the Senate for eight years.

"He's been in the Congress for 25. And so I'll let your viewers make their own judgment," Clinton said.

Just when you thought this race couldn't get any weirder.

New CNN Iowa Poll: Bernie 51, Hillary 43, Martin 4


Have a look at that!

Hillary is throwing everything into Iowa. If she loses there it may be the beginning of the end.

She is pulling all of the punches, rolling out the celebrities, sending out her surrogates. This could be all over within the next couple of weeks. Hold on to your butts.

CNN to hold a Democratic Town Hall week before Iowa


Washington (CNN)The Democratic presidential hopefuls will face voters in a CNN town hall on Monday in Des Moines -- one week before the highly anticipated Iowa caucuses.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will field questions from Iowa Democrats in this prime-time event hosted by the Iowa Democratic Party and Drake University.

"We are honored to partner with CNN on their town hall with our three fantastic Democratic candidates," said Dr. Andy McGuire, chair of the Iowa Democratic Party. "With this event airing just one week before the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses, it's an incredible opportunity for Iowans to see our candidates detail their plans to move our country forward and their vision for Iowa and the nation."

The town hall, which will be moderated by CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, will air from 9 p.m.-11 p.m. ET, the network announced. A CNN spokesperson added that it will make the town hall available to its Iowa affiliates to air live.

Note that this is not a debate. It's more of a forum where audience members will be able to ask the candidates questions. It seems the DWS and the DNC are a little nervous about Hillary's position heading into the Iowa caucuses and have now given her an opportunity to make up ground.

A direct link to the source poll gives a 403 error. Might be fixed soon.
