Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump Open Up Strong Leads in Iowa, Poll Shows

Senator Bernie Sanders and Donald J. Trump have opened up solid leads in Iowa less than two weeks before the state’s caucuses kick off the 2016 presidential nominating contests, according to a poll released Thursday.
The survey from CNN/ORC shows Mr. Sanders, who was trailing Mrs. Clinton significantly in early December, erasing her lead and overtaking her. Likely Democratic caucusgoers now back the Vermont senator over Mrs. Clinton by eight percentage points, 51 percent to 43 percent. Last month she was ahead of him by 18 percentage points.
The results could spell serious trouble for Mrs. Clinton, who is also trailing Mr. Sanders in New Hampshire polls. While Mrs. Clinton is leading most national polls, the prospect of losing the first two nominating contests could deal a major blow to her candidacy.
Iowa Democrats are increasingly feeling set in their choice of candidates, suggesting that there is little time left for Mrs. Clinton to regain lost ground. Mr. Sanders is currently seen as stronger on the economy and health care, while Mrs. Clinton is viewed as stronger on foreign policy.
Realizing she is under pressure, Mrs. Clinton has been criticizing Mr. Sanders for being a self-proclaimed socialist and arguing that many of his progressive policies are unrealistic.
On the Republican side, likely caucusgoers are backing Mr. Trump over Senator Ted Cruz, 37 percent to 26 percent. Senator Marco Rubio sits in third place with 14 percent, and Ben Carson, whose fortunes in Iowa have plummeted, is at 6 percent.
Several Iowa polls showed Mr. Cruz leading or tied with Mr. Trump late last year, but Mr. Trump has been performing better after attacking Mr. Cruz more aggressively in recent weeks. While Mr. Cruz is seen as stronger on social issues, Mr. Trump holds strong advantages when it comes to handling the economy, immigration, leadership and electability in a general election.
Questions have been raised about the strength of Mr. Trump’s ground game in Iowa, as his campaign looks to voters who are not traditionally active in politics to participate in the caucus process.
The CNN/ORC poll had a margin of error of plus or minus six percentage points in its surveys of Republicans and Democrats.

Iowa caucuses: Ted Cruz wins; Clinton declares victory

  • Story highlight

  • Hillary Clinton declares victory in Iowa
  • Iowa win sets up Ted Cruz as major contender in delegate-rich, Southern states in coming weeks
  • Donald Trump takes second place, and Marco Rubio posts a close third
(CNN)Hillary Clinton declared victory early Tuesday morning in a razor-thin contest against Bernie Sanders in Iowa. But Democratic party officials have not yet declared a winner.

"Hillary Clinton has won the Iowa Caucus," the Clinton campaign said. "After thorough reporting -- and analysis -- of results, there is no uncertainty and Secretary Clinton has clearly won the most national and state delegates."

The state party indicated in a separate statement that it was not ready to make a call.
"The results tonight are the closest in Iowa Democratic caucus history," Iowa party chairman Andy McGuire said. "We will report that final precinct when we have confirmed those results with the chair."
One thing is clear after Monday night's Iowa caucuses: there's a long, volatile election season ahead before two deeply fractured parties can unite behind a nominee.

Republican Ted Cruz bested Donald Trump, raising questions about the billionaire's reliance on his celebrity instead of traditional political organization. And Marco Rubio's stronger-than-expected showing could mark him as the establishment's best hope against a grassroots revolt in next week's New Hampshire primary and beyond.
READ: The Iowa caucuses, explained
Cruz's victory sets him up as a formidable force in delegate-rich, Southern states to come and offers movement conservatives hope that one of their own can become the Republican nominee for the first time since Ronald Reagan.
Claiming victory, Cruz fired immediate shots at both Trump and the party elites he has so infuriated by waging an anti-establishment crusade that has nevertheless endeared him to the GOP's rank and file.
"Iowa has sent notice that the Republican nominee and the next President of the United States will not be chosen by the media, will not be chosen by the Washington establishment," Cruz said.
With about 99% of the GOP vote in, Cruz was ahead of Trump 28% to 24%. Rubio was at 23%.
"It is breathtaking to see what happens when so many Americans stand up and decide they're fed up with what happens in Washington and they want something different. They want a leader they can trust, they want a leader that stands for them against the corruption of Washington," Cruz told CNN's Dana Bash in an interview aired Tuesday on "New Day."

Trump, hours after predicting a "tremendous" victory, delivered a short but gracious speech that lacked his normal bombast, saying he loved Iowa and vowed to bounce back next week in New Hampshire.
"We will go on to get the Republican nomination and we will go on to easily beat Hillary or Bernie," Trump told supporters. "We finished second, and I have to say I am just honored."
Rubio will also leave Iowa with a leg up over other establishment rivals including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, who have a lot at stake in New Hampshire.

Ted, extremely religious right wing....

Anyway, hoy quedo demostrado que el establishment está respondiendo al llamado que hizo el GOP con Romney de sacar de carrera a Trump.

Si van a votar en la Primaria Demócrata tienen hasta el 6 de abril para inscribirse.

Para que gane Cruz?? No es muy moderado democratic-friendly que digamos. No se que para un democrata sea peor, y Marco Rubio no es mucho mejor de una perspectiva liberal.

Increible como el liderato aqui convence a la gente a votar por Marco. Espero que pa las democratas la gente piense y no se deje llevar por los intereses de los "democratas" pro Hillary del pais.

Its not like LMM didnt lean to the left. Pero aqui se dice que la izquierda es de republiquetas.

I dont hate Hillary, but everybody just cares for her for su supuesto compromiso por Puerto Rico.

Trump prevé disturbios si no es elegido candidato republicano


El magnate neoyorquino y aspirante a la candidatura presidencial en EE.UU. Donald Trump alertó hoy que habrá "disturbios" si llega a la Convención Republicana de julio con ventaja en el número de delegados, pero el partido decide poner en duda su liderazgo en las elecciones primarias.

"Creo que ganaremos antes de llegar a la Convención, pero puedo decirle, que si no lo hacemos y nos quedamos a 20 votos o 100 y estamos en 1,100, y algún otro tiene 500 o 400 porque estamos muy adelante del resto, no creo que puedas decir que no conseguimos la nominación automáticamente. Creo que habría disturbios", dijo Trump en una entrevista en la cadena CNN.

"No los lideraría, pero creo que podrían ocurrir cosas desagradables", agregó el multimillonario.

Publicidad

Las declaraciones del controvertido precandidato se producen después de que se impusiese anoche en las primarias de Florida, Carolina del Norte, e Illinois, mientras que perdió en Ohio frente al gobernador del estado, John Kasich.

Trump encabeza la carrera republicana por la candidatura presidencial, para la que es necesario contar con 1,237 delegados en la convención del partido que tendrá lugar en julio en Cleveland (Ohio).
