Bernie Sanders "destroys" Donald Trump by a whopping 13 points in a new poll, as reported by The Huffington Post.
This places the socialist senator in a strong position indeed. He would beat Trump more solidly than Hillary Clinton would in a Clinton vs. Trump race.
To be precise, Sanders would beat Trump by six points more than Hillary Clinton would manage. Clinton has taken note of this -- ABC News reports that Bernie Sanders' popularity is making Clinton 'nervous.'
"Most Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, do not believe that a handful of billionaires should control the political life of this country."
This week Clinton's campaign manager Robby Mook sent a fundraising email to supporters with the subject line "nervous."
Mook revealed exactly what was making him nervous -- Bernie Sanders.
"There's a situation developing in Iowa and New Hampshire that could change the course of this election," Mook wrote, referring to Vermont senator Bernie Sanders' lead in the states following a strong advertising campaign.
Another fundraising email sent by the Clinton camp recently mentioned the "(seriously!) tight" polls in New Hampshire.
