Bernie Sanders

Senator Bernie Sanders is closing the gap with Democratic front runner for President in 2016 Hillary Clinton in the polls in New Hampshire.

It is not surprising that Senator Sanders is doing well in the state since it is right next to his own. Whatever the reason, if Hillary Clinton fails to get a majority win by a large margin in New Hampshire next year, it will hurt her chances of winning in the general election.
