Bernie Sanders in a Wisconsin straw poll scored a very strong performance pulling 41% of the delegates vote. Hillary was first with 49% of the votes. In my book a very poor performance for the touted front runner. So even though coming in second isn't a win it certainly shows Bernie is gaining the hearts and minds of the population .
With Elizabeth Warren out of the race , Bernie (at least for now) is garnering votes that would have been for Warren.
The poll mentioned taken in Wisconsin at a state democrat event shows a weakening in Hillary's front runner status , a weakening I believe will continue to plague her chance of gaining the nomination.
Bernie has been drawing huge crowds at his campaign stops and is polling well in Iowa. Apparently the press just can't tell the truth that Bernie has a better chance then the press is giving him credit for. It's embarrassing to watch the press shamelessly blessing candidate early and mostly ignoring the other democratic candidates.
To those who have already written Bernie off , keep your erasers handy , you might just need them in awhile.
