Clinton Laughs Awkwardly When Reporter Asks How a Socialist Is Beating Her


With Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) leading every New Hampshire poll and the primary happening Tuesday, a reporter for Fox25 asked Hillary Clinton on Monday how a self-avowed socialist could be beating her.

“You’re closing the gap with Bernie Sanders here in New Hampshire,” the reporter said. “We all know anything can happen here in New Hampshire, but how is it that a socialist could even be within striking distance of you, let alone beating you?”

Clinton laughed uncomfortably at the question.

“Well, I don’t know what’s going to happen tomorrow. I’m just going to keep working as hard as I can to try to convince as many people as possible to come out and vote for me,” Clinton said.

CNN reports on the latest polls:

Sanders’ 54% to 40% advantage over Hillary Clinton is down slightly from a 55% to 37% lead in the previous Poll of Polls. No public polling has found Clinton in the lead in New Hampshire since November.

Sanders battled Clinton to a virtual tie in the Iowa caucus last week, and he especially pummeled her among younger voters, winning voters aged 18-to-29 by 70 points. Clinton’s team is reportedly weighing a shake-up after the New Hampshire primary, especially if Sanders wins handily.
