During a recent three-day swing through Iowa, Bernie Sanders took the stage before 1,800 supporters in Council Bluffs, Iowa, and declared that he believes he can win Iowa and New Hampshire, creating a path to victory.

"I am getting a really good feeling about Iowa. Last night we were in Sioux City and had about 1,200 people out, tonight I think we have about 1,500 people out here. [Official crowd estimate, 1,800] ... So keep it a secret, don't tell anybody: I think we are going to win here, we are going to make history. And I think we have a great chance to win New Hampshire, and if you win Iowa and New Hampshire you have a path to victory."

The media will not tell you this, but recent polling shows a path to victory for Bernie as well. If you watch the pundits you will hear them say Sanders will run into a wall after New Hampshire. They continue to say he is not connecting with non-white voters. They must not be looking at their own polls.

A new CNN survey shows that Bernie has demonstrated growing support among what the pollster refers to as non-white voters. In a survey last April, he had only 1 percent of voters in that category. As he has made a concerted effort to reach out to African-Americans and Latinos, Sanders' support has grown to an impressive 32 percent in the most recent poll.

Non-white voters

4/16-4/19 1%

5/29-5/31 5%

6/26-6/28 9%

7/22-7/25 12%

9/17-9/19 17%

12/17-12/21 32%

The poll also has Bernie gaining on Hillary Clinton among all voters nationally. Clinton has dropped 8 points to 50% and Sanders has risen 4 points to 34%. President Obama was down 28 points nationally 8 years ago. So Bernie has reason to feel good about Iowa. He should also be feeling good about his chances to win the nomination. Momentum is on his side even though the corporate media won't admit it yet.

In the latest CBS poll of Iowa, Sanders was within 5 points of Clinton. Bernie has double digit leads in most polls of New Hampshire. He is right about what wins in both states would mean. It would shatter the belief among many that he can't win. Obama didn't start polling well nationally until he won Iowa.
