ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Former president Bill Clinton attacked Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders at a campaign rally in Milford, New Hampshire on Sunday (February 7), and shot back against criticism of his wife's ties to Wall Street. "She (Hillary) believes, on the main points of contention between the two candidates in the primary, that what we need to be worrying about is defending Dodd Frank which addresses the problems that caused the last meltdown and making it stronger against speculation," said Clinton. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed into law by President Obama in 2010 -- something Hillary Clinton has said she supports. Her husband, Bill, took another jab at Sanders calling him "the champion of all things small and enemy of all things big." Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has erased Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's wide lead for the Democratic presidential nomination since the start of year, putting the two in a dead heat nationally, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. Clinton leads Sanders 48 percent to 45 percent among Democratic voters, according to the poll of 512 Americans, conducted Feb. 2-5 following the Iowa caucus. The poll has a credibility interval of 5 percentage points.
