Bernie Sanders is leading the polls in New Hampshire’s Democratic primary race, but Hillary Clinton is still up in the national polls. NPR’s Scott Simon speaks with Amy Goodman, host of Democracy Now!
SCOTT SIMON, HOST:
This is WEEKEND EDITION from NPR News. I’m Scott Simon. Donald Trump gets a lot of attention. But the picture on the Democratic side grows interesting, too. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is now ahead of Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire by seven points, according to the new Public Policy Polling survey released Tuesday. Hillary Clinton continues to lead the polls nationally and in Iowa – the site of the first caucus. But Senator Sanders is a strong second – hovering above 20 percent. And Vice President Joe Biden – who hasn’t said if he’ll run – is close behind.
