Bernie Sanders Takes Lead in First National Poll

Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT)
Since late 2013, Real Clear Politics has published on its website polls on the Democratic presidential nomination. Hillary Clinton has led in every one of those 135+ polls.  In all but six of them the Clinton lead has been double digits.  As late as June of last year, Clinton polled 60 points ahead of Sanders.  But the lead has been shrinking the last several months and just this week the unthinkable happened - Sanders has taken the lead from Clinton in a national poll.

A Fox News poll released on Thursday, a bipartisan poll was conducted by Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R), shows Sanders leading Hillary Clinton 47% to 44%. 

A glimpse at the Fox News polls show how Hillary's once formidable margins have been shrinking since November 2015:

2/18/16  Sanders +3
1/22/16  Clinton +12
1/8/16  Clinton +15
12/18/15  Clinton +22
11/20/15  Clinton +23
11/4/15  Clinton +25

Other polling outfits also show Hillary Clinton's margin dramatically shrinking though the Fox News poll is the first to show Sanders in front.
