[Ed. – Her in heap big trouble.]
It’s early, it’s early, I know. It’s earlier than early. The polls are all, or mostly, name recognition. But between this and the various other unflattering data points piling up on her, there’s a faint “Jeb 2016” odor in the air. Strong candidate on paper! Expected to be formidable, if not ultimately the nominee. Then: Faceplant.
It should be noted that the margin of error in this poll is 3.8 percent, meaning that she and Kerry are effectively tied. At zero.
Only one member of the top 12 has gained more since October than the margin of error might account for. That would be Beto! The big losers in the past two months are Kamala Harris, interestingly, and … Elizabeth Warren, who’s lost five points and momentarily sits even with [deep breath] Mike Bloomberg. I don’t know what might have caused Harris to slip. (This, maybe?) I have a fair guess what caused Warren to. If the jury’s still out on whether her DNA test backfired, at least short-term, I’d say they’re getting close to wrapping up deliberations.
