The Polls Are Drunk: Now Hillary Is Up Big in Iowa

Well, this is just getting weird.

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has a 29-point lead over rival Bernie Sanders in Iowa, according to a Loras College poll released Friday.

Clinton has 59 percent support, with Sanders at 30 percent.

The poll, of 500 likely voters in the Democratic caucus, was conducted from Jan. 13 to 18.

With less than 10 days before the Iowa caucuses, various polls are showing the Democratic presidential race heading in different directions.

One would think that polling had gotten more exact over the years, but in the last couple of cycles, it seems that just the opposite is happening. You’d have to go all the way back to…yesterday to find a poll with Bernie Sanders outside the margin of error and in the lead.

Whatever the reality might be, it is obvious that this volatility and/or disparity in the polling means Hillary’s coronation is anything but.

Which means there’s still hope for America.
