• Bernie Sanders: How I Know Clinton Campaign Is ‘Getting Nervous’

    Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders said Saturday that he thinks the Hillary Clinton campaign is “getting nervous” about his significant rise in the polls in recent weeks and months.

    “Don’t tell anybody. I think what they know is that four months ago, when I entered this race, if you look at the polls, I was in 3 to 4%. Vast majority of the American people didn’t know who Bernie Sanders was, they didn’t know what my ideas were, and in last few months, we have amassed huge amounts of enthusiasm and huge amounts of energy,” Sanders said. “So obviously, I think the secretary’s people are getting nervous about the kind of energy and enthusiasm our campaign is bringing forth.”

    Sanders was polling in the low single digits and very few political experts expected him to mount a formidable challenge to Clinton when he first entered the presidential contest. Yet, recent polls have shown Sanders gaining ground against the former secretary of state, with a pair of surveys out Sunday morning showing Sanders ahead by 9 points in New Hampshire and shrinking the gap in Iowa.

    Sanders’ comments came after Clinton took a subtle dig at Sanders in an interview with NBC’s Andrea Mitchell Friday.

    “I think you can come with your own ideas and you can wave your arms and give a speech, but at the end of the day, are you connecting with and really hearing what people are either saying to you or wishing that you would say to them?”
