In 2008, Hillary was considered the presumptive Democrat nominee. Pundits said that she’d win the nomination, then win the general election. They were wrong both with both predictions. This Quinnipiac Swing State Poll must be close to Hillary’s nightmare scenario.
What do you think she’s thinking when she sees that Trump is tied with Mrs. Clinton in Ohio and that he leads Mrs. Clinton in Pennsylvania and Florida? Imagine Mrs. Clinton reading “The presidential matchups show: Florida – Trump at 42 percent to Clinton’s 39, compared to a 47-39 percent Clinton lead June 21; Ohio – Clinton and Trump tied 41-41 percent, compared to a 40-40 percent tie June 21; Pennsylvania – Trump at 43 percent to Clinton’s 41 percent, compared to June 21, when Clinton had 42 percent to Trump’s 41 percent.”
If Mrs. Clinton lost those 3 states, she’d lose to Trump. It’s that simple. I can’t picture Mrs. Clinton losing Pennsylvania but winning North Carolina. That just doesn’t seem possible. These statistics are part of this RedState post with a headline glaring “Hillary Loses Ground After Outspending Trump $57M to $4M.”
This is just part of the pattern for Hillary. She’s outspending Trump by orders of magnitude but she’s losing ground to him while outspending Trump.
What’s more troubling for Hillary is that she won’t get Bernie Sanders’ voters in the percentages that she’d hoped for:
Some of Bernie Sanders’ most loyal backers have turned into his biggest bashers on the heels of his Hillary Clinton endorsement.
The Vermont senator, who slammed Clinton repeatedly during the presidential primary campaign, offered his unwavering support to the presumptive Democratic nominee at a rally in New Hampshire Tuesday. “Hillary Clinton will make a great president and I am proud to stand with her today,” he said.
What followed was an avalanche of angry tweets, blogs and other social media posts from those who had been feeling the ‘Bern’ — and now just feel burned. In New York, Monroe County Sanders activist Kevin Sweeney told the Democrat & Chronicle he’s shifting his donations to Green Party candidate Jill Stein. “A lot of Bernie supporters are making $27 donations to Jill Stein’s campaign today,” he said.
This won’t blow over anytime soon. Some of Bernie’s supporters are true believers. A woman named Ashley Marie tweeted “Used to be a Bernie fan but now that he’s joined Hillary, who supports everything he’s supposedly against, I’m a Trump fan. #NeverHillary” Dan LaMorte tweeted “Bernie Sanders endorsing Hillary Clinton feels so much like when the girl you love starts dating the guy you hate most.”
Perhaps, the best tweet came from Craig, who said “Revolution? I guess political revolution meant something different to Bernie. I was willing to fight corruption to the death. #NeverHillary”
Apparently, Bernie’s supporters were true believers. Apparently, true believers don’t fit with Hillary’s people.
This doesn’t mean Hillary will lose this November. It just means Hillary’s team will need to order tons more Maalox.
