Democratic debate tonight live blog: all you need to know about the 6th Democratic debate

Another debate is set for tonight and there are reasons to believe that Hillary Clinton vs Bernie Sanders debate is going to be very fiery. Both the leaders seeking Democratic nomination are going to be in their fiery best to undermine the other and strengthen their claim over the nomination.

After suffering a disastrous performance in the New Hampshire primary, the former secretary of state is under tremendous pressure to come out with a winning performance in the debate tonight. There are reasons to believe that Hillary Clinton will do her best to mend her badly wounded campaign in a debate on Thursday with rival Bernie Sanders.

Now there are signs that her supporters are asking her to tone down her rhetoric and play underdog instead of the frontrunner, a tag she has been carrying since the beginning of her campaign.bernie sanders for president

While she barely won the Iowa caucuses, the former first lady suffered an embarrassing 22-point loss to Sanders in New Hampshire’s presidential nominating contest.

Now there are reasons that she is contemplating a change in her campaign style and tonight’s debate will show how she wants to take on socialist Sanders in the changing atmosphere.

Reports suggest that after New Hampshire primary drubbing Hillary Clinton headed back to New York, where her campaign is based, to confer with top advisers and prepare for the face-off with Sanders, set for 9 p.m. EST in Milwaukee.

There are reasons to believe that the democratic frontrunner is going to remove many of her old campaign managers. Nonetheless her campaign has denied such reports saying that she is not considering a shakeup of her staff.
Now there are reports that among donors there was a growing sense of nervousness. This desperation has gone up following reports that Sanders’ campaign raised more than $6 million in the 24 hours after his win. The word “disappointed” came up several times during a conference call the campaign held on Wednesday with donors and fundraisers, said one Clinton supporter who was on the call.
