Hillary Clinton vs Bernie Sanders debate under way: Democratic debate tonight TV channel, live debate
Democratic establishment is worried following the recent surge of Bernie Sanders, a self confessed socialist. After his better than expected show in Iowa where he almost tied with the frontrunner Hillary Clinton, the Vermont Senator knocked out the former secretary of state and ex first lady in New Hampshire Primary.
While Hillary and her husband Bill Clinton may not be showing the scars of loss from their look, there are signals underneath that the two are perturbed over Sandersâ€™ surge.
Not just he is able to motivate young and not so young voters, the way his campaign is targeting minorities including Blacks and Hispanics in other states also suggests that he has become a real threat for the Democratic establishment.
Till now, many people were thinking that Hillary Clintonâ€™s nomination was nothing more than a formality and that it was a done deal, but New Hampshire and Iowa have given them massive shocks.
Now Hillary Clinton needs to come with something akin to a knockout debate performance. There is no denying the fact that such performance would rebuild her image as the clear front-runner and â€œinevitableâ€ nominee. But for Bernie Sanders, a debate win is equally important, as his underdog bid for the Democratic presidential nomination faces some seriously steep hills to climb, moving into a series of states where Clinton maintains an imposing advantage in the polls.
This is going to be a tough fight for both the White House hopefuls. You should expect fireworks starting at 9 p.m. Eastern Time, 6 p.m. Pacific on Thursday, February 11. Coming after merely two days after New Hampshire loss Hillary Clinton will be on defensive to prove her status as the frontrunner.
