We all know that the shameless Mr. Toot is a front runner – in 2001 he joined the tide of patriotism and became something of a hawk, in 2009 sensing that the tides were shifting he turned Judas and not only became a full fledged Obama Zombie but also became an Islamic sympathizer. The Rotund ex guitar player has tossed his bag of Cheetos onto the side of the unlovable Hillary Clinton probably because she represents the domineering type of woman that a flatulent, wrinkly, smelly, has-been would like to be around so she can dump all over him and scream at him all day! Here’s the conundrum – the old Communist Bernie Sanders is in a statistical tie with Mrs. Pant Suit. Bernie really reflects Charles Johnson’s philosophy of wealth redistribution (hey it is easier than busking with a beat up guitar by the Santa Monica Freeway begging for quarters). Will Chuckles dump Hillary and decide to “Bern baby Bern”? Stay tuned.

Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders has dramatically cut into the nationwide lead of primary rival Hillary Clinton, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.
The poll released Friday finds Clinton leading the race with 44 percent support, compared to 42 percent support for Sanders, within the survey’s margin of error.
The last iteration of the poll in December had Clinton leading Sanders nationwide 61–30.
“Democrats nationwide are feeling the Bern as Sen. Bernie Sanders closes a 31-point gap to tie Secretary Hillary Clinton,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
The poll also finds that Sanders matches up better with top Republican primary candidates than Clinton.
In head-to-head matchups, the Vermont senator leads GOP front-runner Donald Trump by 10 points, edges Ted Cruz by 4 points and ties Marco Rubio.
While Clinton still tops Trump by 5 points, she ties Cruz and trails Rubio by 7 points.
The poll also finds that Clinton has a net favorability rating of negative 17, only besting Trump in that category, who has a negative-25 favorability rating.
Sanders has a 9-point favorability rating nationwide, only trailing Rubio, at 14 points.
The poll surveyed 484 Democrats and has a margin of error of 4.5 percent.
