A tracking poll released on Monday by UMass Lowell/7News, shows that Vermont Senator and self-proclaimed Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders is ahead of Hillary Clinton by 16 points in New Hampshire, claiming 56 percent support among likely Democratic voters against Hillary’s 40 percent.

The poll, released one day prior to the next US presidential primary in New Hampshire, also ound that Sanders would win by double digits against any Republican rival in a hypothetical face-off, while Clinton would only beat Donald Trump and Ted Cruz by five points and lose to Marco Rubio.

According to another survey released Sunday by CNN-WMUR, Sanders leads Clinton among female voters in New Hampshire by eight percentage points, a significant change from last week's Iowa caucuses, where Clinton won among female voters by 11 points.

Another (NBC News/Wall Street/Marist) poll published one week ago showed Sanders leading Clinton among female Democrats in the Granite state, claiming 56 percent support to Clinton's 40 percent.

Following the release of those results, feminist icon Gloria Steinem and first-ever female US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright criticized young female voters for supporting Sanders, describing their decision as sexist and shallow. That criticism has appeared to backfire on Clinton.

On Friday, Steinem said in an interview that young women were supporting Bernie Sanders because "that's where the boys are," CommonDreams reported. The next day, during a campaign event in Concord, Albright declared that "there's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other."

The remarks drew instant backlash from public figures and social media users, strongly criticizing Albright and Steinem for conflating political preference with personality and ethics.

​Clinton's campaign has been shown to be unappealing to young female voters. The Democratic female presidential candidate's policies appear too close to those of the Republicans, and too cozy with Wall Street and big corporations, causing young millennials to mistrust her.

    Selectric Typeball, Shame on you for cursing able minded independent female voters. You know they are for -"Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth." - Abraham Lincoln quotes from BrainyQuote.com.

    Clinton is not a woman that deserves to play the feminist card. She didn't seize upon the woman's movement to pursue her own political ambitions in 70s/80s. Instead she chose the very status quo role of furthering her husband's position. When he disrespected all she helped him achieve, she didn't dump him and show woman they didn't need a husband to be successful. She has done nothing that is earth shattering or ground breaking for woman, and then plays the feminism card as part of her coronation attempt. Shame on her.

    "The Democratic female presidential candidate's policies appear too close to those of the Republicans, and too cozy with Wall Street and big corporations, causing young millennials to mistrust her."

    Sanders is already winning the young and the female vote, and he is bound to win the black vote as well, especially as voters realise that Hillary is a warmonger, as she already proved in Libya and elsewhere, and seems to have little interest in social policies. Still, Bernie looks a bit too white still and needs to talk more about our issues.

    sixpack6t9, I agree, but Trump wants to cut down a bit on his racist rhetoric.

    sixpack6t9,
    Hi,
    This Rubio has a lot of the pink vote behind him, and he could come around the back on this race.

    Selectric Typeball,
    Yes thank you Hitlery for killing Ambassador Stevens and Gadafi. also well done for destroying Europe and flooding it with Al-Queda moderate rapists.
    I am being sarcastic!

    poofipoofipoofi, The clinton marriage, is only a marriage of political convenience. They each sleep with everyone BUT each other. Chelsea may not even belong to bill. Theirs has always been a union, cultivated for this end right here, today - to put neocon puppet hillary, into the most powerful position in the world. Nothing more.

    Mother Gorilla, It couldn't hurt, but I must ask you - why is it "racist" to want to close our borders, until we can identify and control who comes into our country? Isn't that supposed to be the right and duty of every free country? Look at what is happening to the EU right now. THAT is what an open border gets you. Why is Trump racist for wanting to try to stop that from happening here? I'll tell you why - BECAUSE THE MSM SAYS SO. Is that enough for you?

    Selectric Typeball, I am assuming your comment was SARCASM. It's hard to tell in print, so I usually label my sarcasm as such.
  • Selectric Typeballin reply toAnn (Show commentHide comment)
    sixpack6t9, Of course it was Sarcasm, but it is funny (or sad) that
    some people could ever actually take this type of stuff seriously?
    Yes, you will Burn in Hell, if you don't vote for Hillary Clinton?
    What kind of cr@p is that to say, Madeleine Albright?

    They even deleted my comment questioning whether the Jewish Hell is different from the Christian hell? I honestly don't even know, and consider that a valid question to ask, since Madeleine Albright openly said she was Jewish, right after she became Secretary of State in the 1990's. Apparently, asking that type of question isn't allowed, and the outrage is so pervasive, that you cannot have ANY sort of discussion anywhere.

    So, what does the openly Jewish Madeleine Albright even mean, by saying that you will Burn in Hell if you don't vote for Hillary Clinton? Do the Jews even believe in Hell? I thought Jews didn't believe in the afterlife, so why is the openly Jewish Madeleine Albright trying to condemn Christian Women to hell, for not voting for Hillary Clinton, when she cannot even explain what the difference in meaning is, between the Jewish Hell and the Christian Hell, or even if there is one?

    Vote for Trump to end this ridiculous Political Correctness censorship!

    Jet fuel can't melt steel beams,
    No, I'm just showing how stupid it is to support Hillary Clinton, if she is going to support condemning young women who don't vote for her, to Madeleine Albright's Jewish version of Hell, whatever THAT means?

    Remember that a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote for Political Correctness Marxism, since that originated with the arrival of the Clintons in the early 1990's, and it is time for it to be repudated.

    sixpack6t9, I was not referring to his statement on the borders, anyway, the Europeans hardly have any choice, since there is an international right to asylum -- at the US-Mexican border, where the applicants are mainly economic migrants, the issue may be different -- but to things I found he said on black crime, black youth culture and black work ethic. As a black who knows many blacks, also Americans, I simply want to take exception to his generalisations.
    Let me assure you that I have no respect for the MSM either, in fact, when they say someone or something is bad, that's when I start looking more closely.
  • Mother Gorillain reply toJet fuel can't melt steel beams(Show commentHide comment)
    Jet fuel can't melt steel beams, the whole American elite seem to be brain-dead troll or twits, how else would Madeline Albright have come to make such a statement.
  • Jet fuel can't melt steel beamsin reply toSelectric Typeball(Show commentHide comment)
    Selectric Typeball, Ok thanks for your answer! It was a good sarcastic comment :)
  • Jet fuel can't melt steel beamsin reply toMother Gorilla(Show commentHide comment)
    Mother Gorilla, I agree! Most of the us population don't even bother to learn History.. quite sad :/
  • Mother Gorillain reply toJet fuel can't melt steel beams(Show commentHide comment)
    Jet fuel can't melt steel beams, the Russians are the only true antifascist force on the planet at the moment, but Madeline Albright still hates them.
  • Ann in reply toSelectric Typeball(Show commentHide comment)
    Selectric Typeball, Agreed! Have a pleasant day!
