The polls still suggest that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee for president. She's up by 23 points nationally, by 6 in Iowa, by 13 in New Hampshire, by 15 in South Carolina.

Yet, after a shaky performance — her first — in the last debate, pundits are pronouncing her vulnerable. Once seen as inevitable, she is now just one choice.

This hour, On Point: With 50 days to go before the Iowa caucus, on the eve of a showdown debate in Las Vegas, Democrats are asking: should Hillary Clinton be their nominee? Should she be the next president?
-Jack Beatty
