Hillary Clinton, “I don’t need (or want) White Men”
Hillary Clinton’s campaign pointed to its success in polls among non-White voters and is not worried if the Democratic nominee cannot attract more support from White male voters who comprise a large part of GOP nominee Donald Trump’s base.
“We are in even better shape than we were before the convention with every Obama coalition demographic. The proof is in the poll numbers,” a Clinton surrogate said.
An NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showed just 1% of “Great Society” Black voters support Donald Trump, and Hillary Clinton was in the lead among non-Whites by 69% to Donald Trump’s 17%.
Donald Trump maintains an advantage in a Key category: White working-class voters who do not have college degrees (49 to 36%).
According to NPR, in the last presidential election, President Barack Hussein Obama lost among White college-educated voters.
Political science professor Cal Jillson said Hillary Clinton must focus on the white working class.
“It’s important for her psychologically,” Mr. Jillson said. “It’s important for the Democratic Party to try and restore some of its messaging toward White middle class voters.”
On the Question of the Clinton Foundation’s influence on Mrs. Clinton
64% of likely voters in the US believe that donors to the Clinton Foundation influenced some actions Hillary Clinton took when she was Secretary of State, according to a Rasmussen poll released Tuesday.
Out of that 64%, 49% said they believed donations were “very likely” to have influenced Mrs. Clinton.
On the Question of the corruption surrounding Hillary Clinton
According to reports Tuesday, Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, has launched an investigation to determine whether Hillary Clinton is guilty of public corruption for having used her office as Secretary of State to enrich the Clinton Foundation.
US Attorney Bharara is famous for bringing ironclad indictments to court. He has sent dozens of Wall Street executives, crooked cops, and powerful politicians to jail.
About a month ago, Bharara got in touch with Diego Rodriguez, the assistant director in charge of the FBI’s New York Field Office. Mr. Bharara told Mr. Rodriguez that the US Attorney’s office has collected damning information from witnesses, including a former Clinton Foundation employee.
These witnesses are said to be willing to testify that Hillary Clinton granted quid-pro-quo favors to foreign businessmen and foreign governments as well as to American corporations and wealthy individuals in exchange for huge cash contributions to the Clinton Foundation.
“Having Preet Bharara leading the charge on the Clinton Foundation corruption issue is very bad news for Hillary,” said the FBI source. “Most everyone in legal circles felt that Jim Comey erred on the side of caution when he failed to recommend an indictment against Hillary on email-related charges.
“But Bharara is like Inspector Javert in Les Misérables. Once he has you in his sights, he does not let go. This time, Hillary may have finally met her match.”
