Hillary Clinton Popularity battered in a tight race in California-Men cite *Scandal* as reason

Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in a tight race in California as the campaign batters her Popularity

Hillary Clinton’s popularity has slumped in California under an unrelenting challenge from Bernie Sanders, who has succeeded in breaching the demographic wall Clinton had counted on to protect her in the state’s presidential primary, a new USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll has found.

As he has done across the country this primary season, Sanders commands the support of younger voters by huge margins in advance of Tuesday’s primary — even among Latinos and Asians, voter groups that Clinton easily won when she ran eight years ago. Many of his backers come from a large pool of voters who have registered for the first time in the weeks before the election.

The Vermont senator has battled Clinton to a draw among all voters eligible for the Democratic primary, with 44% siding with him to 43% for Clinton. That represented a nine-point swing from a USC/Los Angeles Times poll in March, in which Clinton led handily.

Among those likely voters not supporting Clinton, the reasons differed by gender. Women were more likely to say she was not “genuine,” while men most often cited “scandal.”

Good for Bernie for staying until the convention! Every vote Counts! Count Every Vote

This poll is undoubtedly why Clinton cancelled her NJ campaign stops and has added more California campaign stops in her schedule.

ETA to show why the Times says her campaign is battered

Yet, Tuesday’s outcome remains difficult to predict, precisely because of the untested nature of Sanders’ following. That portends an intense fight in the final days of the campaign.

Good to know

the Hillary Brahs are Okay with sexist terms like Bernie Bros. What was that, 5 female Hillary Brahs is this thread railing against a jury alert to hide the use of Bernie Bros because it's not sexists? And then flaunting the jury's 7-0 no hide?

Alright, this female Bernie Supporter is nothing but accommodating, Hillary Brahs.



edit-correct spelling of slang word for bro. "Brah is the slang term for "bro" which is slang for brother..a slang inside a slang. 8) THIS ORIGINATED IN THE STATE OF HAWAII!..." {Not "Bra"! Darn--it fit so perfect for with Clinton's "woman card" campaign, too} I learn something interesting every day still. LOL

Intolerance/bigotry has been openly displayed here on DU by POC.

A significant part of Clinton's campaign strategy has been based on not just exploiting, but creating racial divisiveness, for goodness sakes.

This is unnecessary bashing. Most Bernie Sanders supporters and/or Progressives don't HATE Obama.

And we are not monolithic. I may not like that he supported Universal Health Insurance instead of Universal, single-payer Health Care, like Bill before him and now Hillary, but I don't hate him. I could give an entire laundry list of reasons why I don't agree with many of his policies and some of the actions he has taken, but it's not important for purposes of this post. But I don't hate him. No politician is worthy of any emotional investment like that from me (Do YOU invest time/emotion in hating a politician?!).


Exactly, this is Democratic Underground

A place for Democrats, liberals, progressives, Greens, anybody who supports the goals of the Democratic Party.

Democratic goals, rules, policies, laws, platforms, candidates and office-holders are subject to CHANGE. Progressives are ready, willing and able to fight for that change.

The political revolution is to change the status quo in the Dem Party, not to accept it. n/t

Wow, the Democratic Party has swung so far right since I joined

in the 70s, that it is nearly unrecognizable, especially in it's economic views. All they have left are the social/civil rights issues (and Obama has decimated some of those with his mass deportations). They now are the closest they have ever been to being accepted as indestinguishable from regular conservative (non-Teaparty) Republicans.
