Milestone: Hillary Clinton Falls below 50%, Bernie Sanders Hits 25%

August 21, 2015

In Real Clear Politics’ rolling average of national opinion polls, as of August 19th, the most recent day for which data are available, Hillary Clinton has just dipped below 50% support for the Democratic nomination for the first time in the two years they’ve been counting.  The same day, self-professed socialist Bernie Sanders reached 25% for the first time.

For some, er, colorful perspectives on Senator Sanders, further reading:

. . . he’s not just an attractive gadfly but an extremely well organized one. Which is why a man who is largely unknown to the national media is pulling the largest crowds of this campaign – 10,000 in Wisconsin, 8,000 in Maine.
