Sorcery and magic tricks will only get one so far.
And it seems the Clinton campaign has pulled their final rabbit out of the hat.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is finding herself at a significant disadvantage as November nears.
It turns out…no one really likes her.
As the Observer reports:
According to Politico, the Clinton campaign was freaking out over voter turnout in Florida among black voters, who helped President Obama win the state in 2008 and 2012. “Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in panic mode. Full panic mode,” Leslie Wimes, a South Florida-based president of the Democratic African-American Women Caucus, toldPolitico. “They have a big problem because they thought Obama and Michelle saying, ‘Hey, go vote for Hillary’ would do it. But it’s not enough. In the end, we don’t vote against somebody. We vote for somebody.”
For the past several weeks, Clinton and her supporters have focused on courting millennials, who overwhelmingly supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, but have been apprehensive in transitioning their support over to Clinton. While she still has more millennial support than Donald Trump, many millennials are supporting third party candidates, or opting not to vote at all.
It would appear the Clinton campaign has suddenly realized they actually need people to vote for their candidate in order to win. Focusing entirely on soliciting donations from elites in the Republican and Democratic Party can’t get Clinton to the Oval Office.
So, let me get this straight.
Hillary tells the Obamas to tell black Floridians to vote for her. Apparently, they won’t if they don’t like her. It doesn’t matter what President Obama says.
The Clinton campaign is also now pandering for the millennial vote–and willing to change the campaign narrative whichever way the young’uns want it to go. Turns out, just because they liked Sanders doesn’t mean they like the Hillz.
Finally, although Bill and Hillary are cozy with the establishment and the elite, that doesn’t translate to millions of votes.
Although Hillary Clinton has done a fine job making it appear as though she is popular amongst the people, will she actually get individuals to leave their house to cast a vote for her?
Not a vote against Trump–but a vote for Clinton?
Not a vote because President Obama said so or because Bernie is no longer an option–but a vote for Clinton?
If the Clinton campaign wants any shot next month, they are going to have to do better than “vote for me because that guy said so.”
No one leaves their house to cast that ballot.
