US presidential polls 2016: Hillary Clinton's campaign looks nervous after Sanders's big wins?


Washington, March 27: After losing five of the last six states that went to polling, former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton could be in a spot of bother despite having a big lead over her opponent Bernie Sanders.

Though Clinton did not address the results publicly on Saturday (March 26), her campaign aimed to raise funds off her defeats and that could be perceived as a desperation in the Clinton camp.

Shortly after Sanders was projected as the winner in Alaska, Clinton's campaign head Robby Mook reached out to the supporters in an email saying they haven't made it big yet in online fundraising and that the opponents could do well in all the three states that went to polling on Saturday. He thanked the supporters and assured them that Clinton still has a commanding delegate lead and their help can see her securing the nomination for the November 8 general elections.

Clinton has 1,234 delegates at the moment as against Sanders's 956 (excepting the superdelegates, including whom gives the former an even bigger lead).

Washington and Alaska always looked fertile for Sanders, thanks to their predominantly white rural population which favours the Vermont senator. Even the Clinton camp acknowledges in private that this Saturday would favour Sanders more than her.

According to experts, Sanders sends across the message that he is against the Wall Street's big money is making the Western states scramble and pay heavy negative dividends.

And Clinton is certainly not the gainer from states that follow such a train of thought.
