Hillary Clinton is in a heap of trouble. The former First Lady is losing her target audience. When a Clinton is booed on MSNBC, you know things have turned for the worst.
Clinton has hemorrhaged support to Bernie Sanders who is threatening to impede her second attempt at becoming President. Hillary is now faced with trying to go negative on Bernie, who has left wing populism on his side.
At the MSNBC Democratic Townhall in Las Vegas, Hillary tried to paint Bernie Sanders as something other than a Democrat.
‘I just don’t know where this comes from,’ Clinton said. ‘Maybe it’s because Sen. Sanders wasn’t really a Democrat until he decided to run for president.’
She was greeted with boos.
Hillary has proven that she doesn’t have the political savvy and charm that her husband does. It’s hard to imagine Bill Clinton ever getting booed by the MSNBC cheerleaders.
Hillary, who was preemptively coronated by Democrats as their likely nominee, now looks like she is in for some trouble.
Nevada was supposed to be a firewall for the former First Lady. It was seen as being a shoe in for her. But, her many scandals, lack of personal charm and untrustworthiness, now has opened the door for Bernie Sanders who is in a dead heat with her.
Former South Carolina Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian has some bad news for Hillary in that state as well. He said anything less than a blowout by Hillary there will be seen as a victory by Bernie. And he doesn’t think she will succeed, The Daily Caller reports.
“I think that Bernie, his people have put together a tremendous field operation here over the past few weeks,” the Columbia-based attorney told TheDC. “I think that will tighten up” the race over the next week.
“If you remember, [Clinton] was way up in Iowa, and they basically tied. She was way up in Nevada, and its going to be very close, one way or the other,” Harpootlian added. “If he wins Nevada Saturday, that could make a big change,” and put even more pressure on Clinton’s showing in South Carolina.
Of course, it all comes down to delegates. And the Democrats have super delegates that aren’t beholden to voting according to the results of their state primary or caucus. And these super delegates are swinging to Hillary. Despite Sanders crushing Hillary in New Hampshire, the former First Lady garnished more delegates there.
If Hillary wins the nomination because of super delegates, expect there to be some serious discontent by slighted Democratic voters in November.
Hillary might be damned if she does and damned if she doesn’t.
How do you think Hillary will react if she loses in Nevada?
