The latest CBS News poll shows Bernie Sanders breathing down Hillary Clinton’s neck in Iowa, 45 percent to 50 percent, respectively. But in New Hampshire? Sanders swamps Hillary, 56 percent to 42 percent.

Why isn’t this big news? I don’t know. It appears the Democratic establishment and the media establishment are as suspicious of their outsider candidate as the Washington GOP establishment is of Trump.

Hillary’s been pounding Sanders on his NRA endorsement for Senate. I wonder if pro-gun Democrats in the New Hampshire forests are flocking to Sanders in response?
