Closing the Gap/SandersWeeklyUpdate
Looking At Another Poll
A CNN/ORC poll released on December 24th showed Clinton at 50% nationally and Bernie at 34%. The MSM tended to treat these figures as showing that Clinton had a comfortable lead over Sanders in the contest for the nomination. What they didn't point out, but which Scott Galindez has, is that Clinton dropped 8 points to 50% and Sanders rose 4 points to 34%. Only a 16-point difference. At this time in 2008, President Obama was down 28 points. So Bernie has reason to feel good about Iowa. He should also be feeling good about his chances to win the nomination. Even though the corporate media won't admit it, Bernie has the momentum in this race.
Another statistic in this poll showed Bernie making big gains with "non-white voters." In April, he was at 1%. In June, the figure rose to 9% and by mid-September, it had been bumped up to 17%. As of mid-December, the figure stands at 32%. Bernie has been making his case to African-Americans, Latinos, and others and we can expect to see further gains as these voters learn more about him. 
Taking on Trump
In a bid to demonstrate that as the Democratic nominee, she would be ready to take on the Republican's front runner, Hillary Clinton alleged that Donald Trump was helping to recruit fighters for ISIS when he proposed Muslims be banned from entering the US. Clinton couldn't produce the video that she claimed was being shown to Muslims.
In a Face The Nation interview this opened the door for Bernie to expose Trump as just another 1%er. In a bid for some of Trump's working class supporters, Bernie pointed out that Trump thinks that "wages are too high" and "taxes are too high" and that both need to be lower if we want to compete with other countries. In response, Trump called Bernie a liar but the MSM pulled up not one but two videos showing Trump making these statements.
