Hillary Clinton, the Democrat party’s front-runner, is seeing her supporters disappear. Based on data collected from her 2008 campaign and reported by NBC, she saw a drastic drop of 65% of her supporters in West Virginia in the state’s Democratic primary. It looks like the support of her failed 2008 campaign isn’t willing to give her another chance.
Since the beginning of Hillary’s career in law and politics, she has baffled voters with her constant change in opinion. Just recently, she received much speculation for her stances on the coal industry. The beginning of her campaign fought hard to shut down the coal industry, and preached about the new ways she would come up with to power cities across the United States. West Virginia, a state that relies heavily on coal for its economic prosperity, clearly wasn’t having any of the games she is playing.
Democratic voters are flocking to the polls during this year’s primaries, but they certainly aren’t supporting the same candidate. The party’s supporters are split between Senator Bernie Sanders and Secretary Clinton. Recent polls show that 44% of Democratic voters will support Hillary in November, 33% say they will support Republican candidate Donald Trump, and 21% claim they will not support either (The American Mirror).
So what does the future hold for the Democratic party? As of now, it looks like they’re too divided to really make a prediction. Secretary Clinton holds a strong lead in delegates, but if it comes down to the likely scenario of Clinton versus Trump in November, many of the party’s members won’t be pledging support of either. In order to win the American vote, first you should probably have your party’s support. To Secretary Clinton: Good luck getting through without it, because it doesn’t look like you’ve impressed your so-called “supporters”.
