Plenty accused Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz of engaging in some serious projection this morning when she tweeted about what a “rough week” it’s been for the Republicans, while the FBI’s “A-team” has been assigned to investigate Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton.
Wasserman Schultz made her dig at the GOP before the release of the latest poll numbers from Iowa Saturday night, which show trouble for Clinton as she drops below 50 percent and Sen. Bernie Sanders gains ground.
It did indeed, as the top two Democrats are now only seven points apart.
You read that correctly: Clinton has dropped from 56 percent in January to 37 percent in August.
Looks like it’s time for a campaign re-re-reboot.
On the GOP side, the real story is Ben Carson, who has gained serious traction.
As the Des Moines Register reports, the poll follows visits by 21 presidential candidates at the Iowa State Fair and also arrives among growing speculation that Vice President Joe Biden will join the race in September.
