Has BernMomentum stalled in advance of the 4th Democratic debate Sunday night? Perhaps. The just-released NBC/WSJ poll shows Clinton with a 25 point national lead. Obviously, this conflicts with other national polls showing a much tighter race.
My guess is that Clinton’s lead nationally is around 15-18 points about halfway between the CBS/NYT poll which showed her with a 7 point lead last week and the current NBC/WSJ poll. I also suspect her cynical strategy of scaring voters into thinking that Sanders’ healthcare plan could lead to some folks losing Obamcare has succeeded – at least in the short run – in stanching the flow of voters to Bernie.
This week, we have our regulars plus Paul Kawika Martin from Peace Action Network on MLK Day to discuss the triumph of diplomacy with Iran and Richard Kahlenberg Wednesday on his New York Times op-ed Strong Unions, Strong Democracy.
