Hey everybody...Scan here. I'm back from my three-week road trip vacation and it looks like nothing has changed!
According to a brand new poll out of Iowa from PPP:
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is in pretty good shape. She leads with 43% to 22% for Bernie Sanders, 17% for Joe Biden, 3% for Martin O'Malley and Jim Webb, and 2% for Lincoln Chafee. Among Biden's voters 43% say Clinton would be their second choice to only 15% for Sanders. Reallocate them to their second choice and Clinton would lead Sanders 50/25, almost identical to the 52/25 lead we found for her last month when we didn't include Biden.While I was gone, I still checked Twitter occasionally...and I noticed that the media very quickly decided to run with the idea that Hillary was suddenly losing in Iowa based on yet another crazy Quinnipiac result and an online poll. Frankly, I was pretty glad to be hanging out on the beaches and mountains of the western United States instead of worrying about that stuff too much.
When we consider this new poll result along with the very strong national numbers from CNN yesterday, it sure looks like Democrats still love Hillary and a stupid zombie scandal about email didn't come close to changing that.
PS: Look out for my vacation photos next weekend!
