    The UMass-Lowell tracking poll shows a 29-point lead for Sanders, 61 percent to 32 percent. That’s only narrowed 1 point from his lead on Monday, before the Iowa caucus, though big events usually take a short while to process in the polls. Sanders leads in the RealClearPolitics aggregation of recent polls by 17.5 points, with 55.5 percent to Clinton’s 38, with O’Malley still holding 2.2 percent due to the lack of recent polling.

    1. So far with this style format, Bernie has gone first. This has allowed for Hillary to have answers to his comments.
    2. No one has dared to ask how or if either candidate examples of what they will to keep corporate interests out of supreme court, EPA, FDA, USDA, AMA. (Presently they all have appointed ties due to election funding policies). They run our country. How will Hillary pay back the millions she has received in campaign funds?
    3. Debates should be free to view in all formats for ALL. Presently one must have a cable provider, sat dish, FIOS etc. This cuts a percentage of people out of getting educated on the candidates. This is like tighting the voting laws to make it harder to vote. A low turnout is good for them, but not for a fair election. I believe that is why Debbie Wasserman only scheduled 6 debates on the worst possible times. But now that Hillary is down at NH, funny how things change.


    CNN post town hall talk is so out of touch of the American working class!!!


    I agree! It seems like they tilt towards Hillary and I thought Bernie was fabulous tonight. Hillary was uncomfortable it made me uncomfortable. Just my opinion
