Clinton 'Feels the Bern' as Sanders Closes Gap in Iowa

Hillary Clinton, facing the possibility of losing the first two presidential nominating contests, is escalating her attacks on rival Bernie Sanders using a rare issue where he's vulnerable with the Democratic Party's progressive base.

A new NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll underscores the Clinton campaign's nervousness. Sanders led 50 to 46 percent in New Hampshire, which neighbors his home state and has given him the lead in most polls since summer. More troubling for Clinton is that her lead in Iowa narrowed to 48 percent to 45 percent.
