Hillary Clinton Officially Losing to Socialist Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire and Iowa

If Team Clinton hasn't hit the panic button yet, they certainly should. 

According to a new Quinnipiac University poll, Hillary Clinton is trailing rival Bernie Sanders in Iowa 41-40 and based on his rise so far, he's expected to keep gaining on the former Secretary of State. In July, Clinton was beating Sanders in the state by 19 points. 

In a come-from-behind rally, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is the choice of 41 percent of Iowa likely Democratic Caucus participants, with 40 percent picking former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and 12 percent backing Vice President Joseph Biden, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

This compares to results of a July 2 survey by the independent Quinnipiac University showing Clinton at 52 percent, with 33 percent for Sanders and 7 percent for Biden.

The poll also shows more Democrats choose Sanders over Clinton on the issue of honesty.

"He is the candidate of the Democratic left, against his own party's bosses and their prized presidential candidate, Secretary Hillary Clinton," assistant director of he poll Peter Brown said. "Sanders has seized the momentum by offering a message more in line with disproportionately liberal primary and caucus voters."

According to the RealClearPolitics average, Clinton is losing to Sanders in New Hampshire by seven points, which is outside of the margin of error.
