Race For 2016: Polls Show Trump Tops, Clinton Slips

Hillary Clinton danced on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Jeb Bush was pushed for a “Trumpier” answer on Stephen Colbert’s “Late Show,” and an emotional Vice President Joe Biden told Colbert that he’s not quite ready to start a presidential campaign after his son’s death nearly four months ago, and doesn’t know when he will be.

Polls this week show Trump with a growing lead over other Republican rivals, and Hillary Clinton’s once-commanding lead over Democratic rival Bernie Sanders evaporating in New Hampshire and Iowa.

Here & Now hosts Meghna Chakrabarti and Robin Young are joined by Jesse Holland of the Associated Press and Rebecca Sinderbrand of The Washington Post to discuss this week’s news in the race for 2016.
