Poll puts Hillary tied for first in Democrat primary

Daily WireHere’s where things get interesting – the survey asked respondents to choose a candidate if the pool were expanded to include Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, and John Kerry.
Once these candidates are added to the mix, the race changes dramatically. Biden still leads with 19% of the Democratic vote, but Clinton comes in second with 18%. Warren falls to 13%, and Sanders to 12%.

When independents are added to the pool, the race gets even tighter, with Biden and Clinton tied at 13% each. Warren and Sanders also tie at 10% each.

Speaking recently with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, former Clinton advisor Philippe Reines said: “You know, she ran for president because she thought she would be the best president. If she still thought that now, if she thought she had the best odds of beating Donald Trump – I think she would think about it long and hard.”

When Carlson suggested that Clinton “hasn’t foreclosed the possibility,” Reines replied: “No, she has not.”

What did I tell you? She's running!

Or she thinks she is, anyway. Those polls don't write themselves; someone has to commission them, and that someone is either Hillary, Bloomberg, or Kerry. Bloomberg has recently said he's not after considering it (which, to be fair, doesn't rule him out). Kerry's been very, very quiet and was probably included because he tried before against Bush. But Clinton's been making the talk show rounds, (trying to) trash Trump, and going after the other primary candidates too.

UPDATE: Bloomberg is running. He's got people collecting signatures in Alabama, where the primary filing deadline is today. Apparently he changed his mind again, or decided it was better to file just in case he did later.
