Just when it seemed like Clinton had to win Iowa after a landline poll fron CNN put her down 27 points, the latest Iowa poll shows her down 8.

What would be the outlook if Sanders managed to not only win New Hampshire, but also Iowa?

Sanders does well with white liberals, and Iowa and New Hampshire are some of the whitest states in the country. Blacks and Hispanics favor Hillary by wide margins. Unless this changes, Sanders has next to no chance of winning the nomination.

That's because she has the name recognition and they don't know much about Bernie. He won the SC focus group 27 to 2.

Yeah, something along those lines.

I agree entirely. The question is if Sanders can get his name out there. Most voters don't give much time until about now.

Even among minorities, her lead has dropped considerably - not nearly enough, but I don't think it's as strong (as in whether it would cut it for a win if it stays, with a lot of emphasis on "if"...) as most people would be led to believe.

He will. A national poll yesterday has him nine points behind Clinton, the lowest margin to date. The way it looks now, chances are he'll overtake her nationally before the Iowa caucus.
