Yesterday, I did a lunch alert video called “Hillary Collapsing”. It was based on a poll showing her at only 42 percent among Democratic primary voters. Now, a new CNN poll has her at 37 percent with Bernie Sanders 10 ten points behind at 27 percent.
And against Republican rivals, she is either behind or in a statistical tie.
But that’s not the really bad news for her. The really bad news is that she has crashed below the 40 percent barrier. On his worst days, Obama has never had less than 40 percent approval. But now, in the Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton draws less than 40 percent of the vote. This means that Obama’s base is deserting her in droves.
It also means that Joe Biden will probably get into the race. With Clinton sinking like lead and Sanders rising to fill the vacuum, Biden will face the strong pleas of his fellow Democrats to rescue them from oblivion by avoiding the nomination of a leftist Sanders or a failing Clinton. The pressure will be irresistible to run.
Particularly galling is Clinton’s eroding support among Democratic women. In the CNN poll, she only wins among women by 20 points: Clinton: 41 percent, Sanders 21 percent, Biden 20 percent. The fact that 59 percent of Democratic women would vote against her is a potentially lethal indicator.
Clinton is in desperate trouble.
