KARL (voice-over): “For Hillary Clinton, troubling science of deja vu all over again. Danger looming in Iowa, the state that led to the downfall of her last presidential campaign when she lost to Barack Obama nearly eight years ago. Shocking numbers in the latest Iowa poll, only 37 percent of Democrats pick Hillary. Barely ahead of Bernie Sanders. Her support tanking 20 percentage points since May. Sanders, a self-described socialist from Vermont with a thick Brooklyn accent doesn't exactly look like the next Obama. But he's already ahead in New Hampshire.”

SANDERS: “This is not anti-Hillary Clinton. This is pro-Bernie Sanders and pro message that says enough is enough.”

KARL (voice-over): “Even Joe Biden, not yet in the race, draws 14 percent. The VP dropped by a jamboree of Democrats in his home state of Delaware over the weekend with his decision on a possible run expected in the coming weeks.”
