What a difference a Republican whipping party makes. Well, the so-called Benghazi hearing contributed to this new love for Hillary, but she has been on this wave of growing support since the last Democratic debate a little over a week ago.
And now this – Hillary Clinton has reclaimed the lead in Iowa from Bernie Sanders and it is a commanding lead. According to Quinnipiac University poll, Hillary Clinton now hold an 11 point lead over Bernie.
The poll of likely Democratic Caucus participants showed Clinton with 51 percent support to Sanders’ 40 percent. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley received 4 percent support. Quinnipiac’s Sept. 10 poll had Sanders leading Clinton 41-40 percent.
“A strong debate performance doesn’t always translate into better poll numbers, but it sure did for Hillary Clinton,” Quinnipiac assistant director Peter A. Brown said in a statement. “Clinton had been losing momentum among the key Iowa Caucus participants and last month was tied with Sen. Bernie Sanders, who seemed to have the momentum in Iowa and nationally. But the debate seemed to reverse that trend and once again she is the leader of the pack in Iowa,” he said.
Indeed, the poll found that a majority of those who watched the debate said she had won it.
