While Bernie Sanders was initially considered an unelectable underdog, new polls show that Sanders is proving a formidable opponent to Hillary Clinton. Less than a month away from the Iowa Caucus, according to recent polls, Sanders trails Clinton by just 3 points in Iowa at 48% to 45%. The same poll reports that Sanders leads Clinton in New Hampshire at 50%-46%.
