While normal Americans are “freaked out” about the prospects of Hillary Clinton becoming the next president, Democrats are “freaked out” about her prospects of winning even without her legal troubles hanging over her head.
From The Hill:
Nervous Senate Democrats raised concerns with Hillary Clinton during a private meeting in the Capitol Thursday over a recent poll showing Donald Trump leading or tied in several battleground states.
“Some people were freaked out, they were looking down at the polls on RealClearPolitics and asking why it was so close,” said a Democratic senator who attended the meeting, referring to a website lawmakers were checking out on their personal devices…
A Quinnipiac University poll released this week showed the presumptive GOP presidential nominee up 42 percent to 39 percent in swing state Florida. Clinton had an 8-point lead in Quinnipiac’s poll of the state last month.
The same survey showed Trump ahead 2 points in Pennsylvania, another big swing state, and tied in Ohio. The three states have been pivotal in the last four presidential elections.
The significance of this cannot be overstated. Why is this significant?
NBC News reported this week that Clinton’s campaign and allied super-PACs have spent $57 million so far, while Trump’s campaign hasn’t spent anything, and two allied outside groups have spent only $3.6 million.
Team Clinton has outspent Team Trump in nine battleground states by a 40-1 ratio, NBC reported.
She’s throwing the kitchen sink at Trump and it’s bouncing off of him like it’s spring loaded.
40 to 1 against a billionaire who is spending nothing and she’s losing in some state polls? No wonder the Dems are “freaked out.” Hillary is such a TERRIBLE candidate that Trump doesn’t even have to try to make the case for why voters should reject her.
It’s not often that a candidate is so disliked that the harder they try to convince voters to support them the worse their chances get.
Hillary is that special.
