The big news in the Hillary camp was that she got the Democratic nomination, but when you look at the numbers, it paints a WAY different picture.
With all the talk of political revolutions and change coming to the country, it seems as if Hillary is the least likely to enact it, and the people supporting her reflect that.
While Trump shatters records left and right concerning voter turnout (best primary vote EVER), Hillary is stuck in the weeds, spinning her wheels against the billionaire real estate mogul.
According to The American Mirror,
Hillary Clinton’s base of support appears to have hit its high watermark eight years ago.
The election results from the California and New Jersey primaries are just the latest examples of the contraction of enthusiasm her campaign seems to be experiencing.
With 94.4% of precincts reporting, Clinton won 1,841,285 votes in California on Tuesday, compared to Bernie Sanders’s 1,416,742, Politico reports.
That’s nearly a 30% drop in total support from 2008, when she received 2,608,184 votes, or 51.47%. (Barack Obama got 2,186,662 votes or 43.16%.)
What about East Coast states where she has more of a presence? Turns out, people are sick of her there as well.
The results weren’t much better in New Jersey. While Clinton won the state — as she did in 2008 — she saw a decline in support there, too.
On Tuesday, Clinton received 542,656 votes, or 63.35% of the ballots cast compared to Sanders’s 315,194 votes, according to the Politico totals.
That’s a 13% decline in support from her 2008 turnout, when she received 613,500 votes — or 53.76% of the total votes, compared to 501,374 ballots cast for Obama.
I’m glad that the country is reflecting what we already knew for months. Hillary is going down the tubes, and I can’t wait to hear her concession speech in November!
