Bernie Sanders moves ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire

While it may just be one poll in one state, but Bernie Sanders is now leading Hillary Clinton in an early primary poll of New Hampshire votes.

It’s also notable that Joe Biden is third (as he is in Iowa), even though he hasn’t announced that he’s running, ahead of Jim Webb, Martin O’Malley and  Lincoln Chafee.

Bernie Sanders donkeyhoteyThousands are turning out at rallies to hear the socialist Sanders discuss his ideals and counter the former Secretary of State for the Democratic nomination for President.

Liberal website Mother Jones praises moves by the Vermont Senator:

“Sanders, for his part, has taken steps to improve on a set of issues that dogged him early in the campaign. In response to feedback from Black Lives Matter activists, who have disrupted two of his events, he recently unveiled a “racial justice” platform. He also hired a Symone Sanders, a young black activist who had criticized his rhetoric on race and inequality, as a national press secretary. It’s looking like a campaign that thinks on its feet. And after Tuesday, Team Clinton is officially on notice,” Mother Jones notes.
