Clinton shrugs off slumping poll numbers, looks to debate

US Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks at the Foundry United Methodist Church's bicentennial serviceBy John Whitesides CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (Reuters) – Presidential contender Hillary Clinton shrugged off her slumping poll numbers on Monday and said the upcoming Democratic debates would give her a chance to draw a contrast with liberal Senator Bernie Sanders and other rivals as she makes her White House pitch directly to voters. Clinton, once the prohibitive favorite for the Democratic nomination for the 2016 presidential election, has seen her cushion dwindle in polls both nationally and in early-voting states such as Iowa and New Hampshire amid questions about her use of a private email server for her work as secretary of state. In new Iowa polls, she has fallen into a dead heat or trails Sanders, who also has closed the gap nationally.
