Bernie Sanders has been doing much better than what the Clinton campaign has hoped for and now they are both in a virtual deadlock in the first two primaries based on a new WSJ/NBC News/Marist poll:

Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are neck and neck in both Iowa and New Hampshire, a new poll has found.

Clinton is slightly ahead among likely Democratic voters in Iowa with a 48%-to-45% lead over the Vermont senator, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist poll. However, Sanders is narrowly beating the former Secretary of State among likely primary voters in New Hampshire with 50% support compared Clinton’s 46%, the survey shows. Both leads in the early voting states are within the poll’s margins of error, the Wall Street Journal reports.

“The Democratic contests in Iowa and New Hampshire could still go either way,” Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, told the newspaper. “If your New Year’s resolution was to have clarity in 2016, you better also have resolved to be patient.”

The next Democratic Debate should be hugely important for Iowa. Too bad the idiot in charge of the DNC has scheduled it for Sunday night, January 17th. And Martin O'Malley may not be included.
