Hillary Clinton Still Has A Large Lead In South Carolina
The media is focusing almost entirely on the states of Iowa and New Hampshire -- the first two states to pick their delegates in the Democratic race. But two other states will follow closely behind -- Nevada on February 20th and South Carolina on February 27th.
I haven't seen a poll on Nevada in a couple of weeks, but the most recent one had Clinton with a good lead. But there is a new poll on South Carolina. It is the CBS News / YouGov Battleground Poll -- done between January 17th and 21st of 388 likely Democratic voters in that state. No margin of error for only Democrats was given.
The poll has Hillary Clinton with a 22 point lead over Bernie Sanders among likely Democratic voters. Sanders does best among men, trailing only by a single point, but very poorly among women where he trails by a whopping 36 points.
