Hillary Clinton Loses Her Majority

The latest Rasmussen Reports poll, taken right after the third and most recent Democratic debate, shows that Hillary Clinton has lost crucial ground in the Democratic nomination battle.

Before the debate, Rasmussen had her defeating Bernie Sanders by 50-29 (a margin of 21). Now her lead is down to 16 points — 46-30. Her four-point drop in vote share is huge because it means that a majority of the Democratic primary voters do not want to vote for her.

Sanders won 30 points in the poll, O’Malley got 7 points, 9 percent favored some other candidate, and 8 percent were undecided.

So 46 percent vote for Clinton and 54 percent don’t.

Hillary has lost her majority. In the previous Rasmussen Reports poll, Clinton still had a majority of 50 percent, while Bernie was back at 29 percent.

Once you lose your majority in politics, you are in trouble. Hillary Clinton is now in trouble.

After the first debate, Clinton led 50-26, so she has dropped four, and Sanders has come up four since the debates started.

Ominously for Clinton in the general election, Sanders soundly defeated her — 53-33 — among Independents who said they would vote in the Democratic Primary — a prime target for the Republican candidate in November.

Hillary Clinton’s candidacy is all about gender. Men broke even between Sanders and Clinton, while 55 percent of women supported Clinton.
