Polls for 2016 presidential election: Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders giving scare to Hillary Clinton campaign

Washington: Are we staring at setback for Democratic front runner and former secretary of state Hillary Clinton? She has been an undisputed leader for Democratic presidential nomination till now.

Now there are some signs of nervousness in her campaing.

Vermont senator, Bernie Sanders is the reason behind Clinton campaign’s unease.

Right now the septuagenarian Bernie Sanders is looking at Washington for an attempt to notably close Hillary Clinton’s delegate lead and is aiming to make a comeback starting this weekend in Washington state.

It should be kept in mind that the state is one of the most important delegate prizes left on the presidential primary list and offers 101 delegates in Saturday’s caucuses. Sanders will not only need to win, but win big to make any considerable difference in the race against Clinton.hillary clinton vs bernie sanders 2016

There is no denying the fact Sanders has done better in caucus contests, and will fight in three more of them this weekend. Hawaii and Alaska are also holding caucuses on Saturday, alongside Washington. Sanders, who has been stirring Western states, told a Spokane, Wash., crowd on Thursday that a win in Washington would be a crucial step toward the White House for his campaign, as he asserted he’s the best candidate to fight against the Republican nominee in November.

When it comes to Demicratic delegate race Clinton has a 1,690-946 delegate lead over Sanders, when “superdelegates” are included. It requires 2,383 delegates to grab the nomination. During a Tuesday campaign stop in Everett, about 30 miles north of Seattle, Clinton said she has got 2.6 million more votes than Sanders and more votes than anyone else, including Republican front-runner Donald Trump.

The imortance of Seattle is clear. It is the leader among large cities in per-capita individual contributions to Sanders, with about $145 for every 100 people, says an analysis of federal campaign data. In terms of dollars, Seattle falls behind only New York and San Francisco in total individual contributions from cities, with $884,000 given through the end of February. That does not consist of individual contributions under $200, which constitute the majority of Sanders’ support.
