New poll reveals yet another disaster for Hillary

A Bloomberg poll released this morning shows that only a third of Democrats and leaning-Democrat voters support Hillary, and even more startling, undeclared potential but unsure candidate Joe Biden is supported by a quarter of the same sample.

The findings of a national Bloomberg Politics poll released Wednesday represent a notable achievement for an as-yet undeclared candidate, suggest concerns about Hillary Clinton's candidacy, and raise the prospect of a competitive three-way race for the Democratic presidential nomination. 

Clinton, once the prohibitive front-runner, is now the top choice of 33 percent of registered Democrats and those who lean Democrat, the poll shows. Biden places second with 25 percent and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is at 24 percent. The other three Democratic candidates combined are the top choice for less than 4 percent of that base.

The trend is most definitely not Hillary’s friend:

Adding to the good news for the vice president: His favorability ratings are on the rise. Since the last Bloomberg poll in April, Clinton's favorability ratings have dropped 10 points, from 48 percent to 38 percent. Biden's 49 percent favorable score represents a 3-point uptick. He was the only one of a dozen national political figures and entities whose approval rating improved over the summer. 

This means that two thirds of the Democrats’ base are not declaring themselves supporters of the “inevitable” candidate, and half support rivals, including one who is not certain to run.

With bad news almost certainly on the way, Hillary is taking on water and listing to the side.  It is panic time in her camp, and for the Democrat establishment.  As with the GOP, the base is way ahead of the party elites in recognizing trouble.
