I'm just a little giddy about this this morning... In Iowa and New Hampshire, all major candidates (Rep and Dem) have a higher "unfavorable" rating than "favorable" except for one... Feel the Bern!

All Major Candidates Unpopular in Two Key States — Except Bernie Sanders



Candidate fav/unfav scores among registered voters in Iowa

Bernie Sanders: 30%-27% (+3)
Rubio: 31%-32% (-1)
Scott Walker: 30%-31% (-1)
Jeb Bush: 34%-46% (-12)
Hillary Clinton: 37%-56% (-19)
Donald Trump: 32%-60% (-28)

Candidate fav/unfav scores among registered voters in New Hampshire

Sanders: 41%-29% (+12)
Bush: 40%-45% (-5)
Walker: 28%-34% (-6)
Rubio 28%-34% (-6)
Clinton: 37%-57% (-20)
Trump -27%-67% (-40)

Yet here is a VERY important reminder about looking ahead to the general election: It was at this time exactly four years ago that Washington and President Obama were rocked by the debt-ceiling crisis. Remember that? Indeed, in our NBC-Marist poll of Oct. 2011, Obama’s approval rating in the Hawkeye State was at 42%, and his approval in New Hampshire was even worse – at 38%. And guess what: Obama ended up winning both states in the 2012 general election pretty easily, it turns out.


Why Iowa and New Hampshire are Crucial in Election Season



Now, the caucus in Iowa is the all-important kickoff to election season, followed closely by the first primary in New Hampshire. And New Hampshire is arguably equally important, as it either affirms the frontrunner decided in Iowa or tempers the results of the first event with a different outcome.


Keep it up, Bernie!

I know Bernie looks exciting and all, but I still kind of think he's going to turn out like the Democrat version Ron Paul.

Sanders Surges, Clinton Sags in U.S. Favorability



Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' favorable rating among Americans has doubled since Gallup's initial reading in March, rising to 24% from 12% as he has become better known.

I wonder how Ron Paul did in Iowa and New Hampshire compared to the other candidates at that time?

GO SANDERS, GO SANDERS GO!

Even us Canadians love sanders too

I love that Sanders is getting so much attention. But I do not love one thing he said recently. I am so sorry he said that we need to limit the availability of certain types of firearms. That is how the unchecked gun control of Illinois started. It was just 'certain types' of guns. That quickly morphed into all guns.

Say it isn't so Bernie...Say it isn't so...

Bernie
! I think as we get deeper into this presidential campaign, he's going to appeal to more and more voters. Wait until the debates!

I think we're saner though


We'll see. If his numbers keep up the pace, by the primaries he will have shot.

I just wouldn't get my hopes up this early into the election season. That's all.

I'd pay money to see Sanders toss a bucket of clean water on Hillary in a debate, just go ahead and dissolve her and get it out of the way.

I don't think there's anything to lose. Whoever wins the Dem primary is almost assuredly going to be our next President, so it's probably going to come down to the Dem debates. Hillary is a good debater, Bernie is better. Hillary comes off bitchy, Bernie comes off passionate.

You could well be right though.

I'd look for a more detailed answer. Two minutes to cover several topics.

I found this useful for figuring out where I actually stand in relation to all of the candidates:

I side 94% with Bernie Sanders www.isidewith.com...
