In this week's polls:
The first NH poll - Emerson - since the last debate shows Sanders maintaining a growing lead over the rest of the field.
Buttigieg dropped to 2nd.
The Democrats are having to face the ugly reality that Sanders has an excellent chance of winning both IA and NH.
Biden and Warren are mired in a third place tie at 14% - not even enough to win any delegates.
Klobuchar made an impressive gain, rising six points to 10%. It is possible that she is benefiting from the dearth of centrist candidates, although her policies are not centrist.
She does give the impressive of being formidable, in an angry, bitter way.
As Biden's weird, smoke-and-mirrors 'campaign' continues to dissolve, she may pick up some voters who are repelled by communism.
Emerson NH Dem poll:
"Exclusive 7NEWS/Emerson College poll offers peek at who’s leading ahead of NH Democratic primary"
"Sanders climbs, now tied with Biden among registered voters: Reuters poll
NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders has been steadily climbing in popularity this year and is now tied with former Vice President Joe Biden for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination among registered voters, according to a Reuters/Ipsos national poll."
In this week's polls:
While the impeachment hoax hysteria continues to slime its way, the polls are showing Sanders continuing to rise.
Morning Consult polling for the four early states - IA, NH,NV and SC:
"NEW early-state tracking:
Biden: 26% (-1)
Sanders: 23% (+4)
Buttigieg: 11% (+2)
Bloomberg: 3% (-2)
Warren has stopped falling and has stabilized. Buttigieg gained slightly and is still in the game.
Steyer's numbers are weirdly high. Billions spent can at least buy name recognition. It's interesting that he has now topped Warren and Buttigieg.
The desperate attempts to promote Klobuchar have produced nothing.
At the same time, another new poll shows Sanders leading in California.
"Sanders holds 4-point lead on Biden in new California poll"

If Sanders can win in delegate-rich California, that would be the biggest story of Super Tuesday
More on this week's polls:
Sanders continues his surge in the weeks before primary season.
New results from NH.
"New WBUR poll for the New Hampshire Primary has Sanders nearly doubling his support since the same poll last month and taking a commanding lead.
In this week's polls:
Arrogant Democrats are reaping the whirlwind.
"Only 53% of Bernie Sanders voters will definitely support 2020 Democratic nominee if he doesn't win"
As the Democrats continue their impeachment self-destruction, their own civil war continues and the results are in the polls.
Sanders is surging, and his voters are loyal to him - and increasingly unlikely to support any other Democrat if Sanders fails to win the nomination.
The Democrats establishment continues to attack and openly insult Sanders - and his voters.
Madame Lafarge Clinton is leading way with her foolish insults.
It doesn't seem to occur to them that Sanders voters will not surrender as most did in 2016.
That theme of a decadent Leftist Establishment refusing to acknowledge their loss of power is interesting - self-deception and delusions of grandeur as their world collapses.
In today's poll:
The Democrats' perfect storm continues to form on the horizon.
Sanders expands his lead in Iowa outside the margin of error, as Warren continues to slide.
"Poll: Sanders opens up lead in Iowa"
"Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has opened up a 7-point lead in Iowa, according to a New York Times/Siena College poll released Saturday, a strong showing in a volatile primary battle just over a week away from the state’s caucuses"
In today's polls, Sanders' momentum continues in a new state - South Carolina.
If Joe Biden loses in both IA and NH, he has to win NV and take SC in a landslide to remain viable.
But in SC, Biden's lead has collapsed from as high as 31% to just 5% in the new poll.
Biden is still front-runner, but Sanders is only 5 points behind.
"Joe Biden leads the Democratic primary with 25%, followed by Bernie Sanders (20%), Tom Steyer (18%), and Elizabeth Warren (11%)."
The details of the SC poll are just as significant.
Sanders has been working to appeal to SC's large base on black Democrat voters.
They are they to Biden's lead and until this month he had an overwhelming lead - with as many as 50% supporting him in SC.
It was assumed then that this pattern would be Biden's default base that could not be shaken.
That is no longer true.
Today's poll - cumulative leads in key states for the Democratic nomination.
These reflect the numbers from the last 1-2 months on average in numerous polls, as detailed in the RealClearPolitics polls.
Iowa Sanders leads by 4.4
NH Sanders leads by 9.5
NV Biden leads by 5.7
SC Biden leads by 13.5
CA Sanders leads by 5.7
In both NV and SC, Biden is dropping sharply in the last 2-3 weeks.
More on the SC poll and what it means for Sanders and Biden:
"South Carolina was the firewall. It was the state that was supposed to go overwhelming for Joe Biden in order to stop the bleeding of possibly losing the first three states of Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada. That now looks like it may not happen and it’s a shocker."
"Just how much of a disaster is this result for Biden? His now commanding lead among African Americans had dwindled to almost nothing."
"Nothing is certain, but the chances of the Democrat establishment facing their worst nightmare of a Bernie Sanders nomination has gone up exponentially in the last two weeks. "
Biden's implosion continued:
"The voting is already upon us as well, so the time to change the outcome has dwindled. Iowa votes Monday, with New Hampshire just days later.
If Sanders wins both those states, he’s going to also be favored in Nevada. At that point, the game will have fundamentally changed and Biden may lose South Carolina outright. If that happens, the game is over, and it may be before then."
All of this explains why the Dems are pushing Bloomberg - a pure panic move.
Bloomberg's obvious longer term goal is to further socialism/marxism in the US.
But his ludicrous presidential run will hurt his credibility and expose his plans to public at the same time.
Caucus/primary season starts tomorrow, and even now, the Democrat's nomination process is not the lead story - or on most days, even at the top.
Watching their garbage campaigns do a Hindenburg, one after the other, has been sweet indeed.
@timr Couldn’t happen to a better bunch!
@timr trump has crushed sleepy creepy old dumb quidprojoe. Corrupt POS needs to be jailed with killary Hussain and f Chuck
Biden is the worst major candidate - from either party - in recent memory.
An absolute failure in every way. But the Dems have been promoting his disintegrating campaign for a year.
He has been sitting like a paper-weight on the Dems' race for the nomination.
Martin Weissgerber, the self proclaimed communist Field Organizer for the @BernieSanders
campaign told us his that his mother, WBUR's Executive Producer Kathleen McKenna was so far left she had to hide her views from the @NPR
@timr Where in NY are you from? Long Island here
I have lived in MA for many years now.
I was born and grew up in Westchester. Mother from Manhattan. Father from Brooklyn.
I have many relatives on L.I., mostly in Glen Cove and Patchogue. I spent many summers growing up in Glen Cove.
@timr My family from Astoria. Grew up in Wantagh.. Glen cove is nice although I'm partial to south shore girls...😂
@LI_Catfish Ha- I don't know the South Shore very well.
I spent time in Astoria growing up. My Dad's brother and his family lived there - then made the move from Queens to NJ.
@timr Cool...had family there my whole life. Astoria is nice. 30th rd..
You're a Trump voter in NYC. Queens was usually more conservative than Manhattan and Brooklyn. Are there many Trump voters?
@timr I'm on Long island
There's a lot of Trump support on Long Island. NYC tends to be very liberal. they elected De blasio multiple times and Bloomberg.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
