WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Sanders surpassed Clinton in some polls as she was mired in her email scandal last month. However, two polls that came out on Tuesday show Clinton is back in a big way.

On Saturday night, thousands of Iowans packed a parking lot outside Hy-Vee Hall before the Jefferson-Jackson dinner.

Two new polls show more Iowans are supporting Clinton now than ever before.

First came a Monmouth university poll which shows 65 percent of Iowa Democrats are backing her right now. Bernie Sanders is a distant second with 24 percent of the vote.

Then a few hours later a second poll mirrored those results. A Loras College Poll gives Clinton 62 percent of support, while Sanders has 24 percent.

It’s the first poll of Iowa Democrats we've seen conducted after last week's shake-up in the Democratic race.Vice president Joe Biden, Jim Webb and Lincoln Chaffee all officially stepped out of the race last week.

Clinton also gave that memorable performance before the house Benghazi Committee that many Democrats have cheered.

Caucus day is still 96 days away, but for now it appears momentum has significantly swung back in Hillary Clinton’s favor in Iowa.
