The Reason Bernie Sanders Defied The Polls In Michigan

"FLINT, MICHIGAN — Bernie Sanders upset Hillary Clinton in the Michigan presidential primary on Tuesday, securing a larger share of voters of color than he has ever before and significantly winning young voters, who came out in record numbers.
Though the polls predicted she would easily win Michigan, Clinton secured just 65 percent of Michigan’s African American vote, a number that’s significantly lower than her usual results — including Mississippi, which also held a primary on Tuesday, and where she secured almost nine in ten black voters. The only state where Sanders won a larger share of African American voters was his home state of Vermont, which is only 1.2 percent black. Michigan, meanwhile, is more than 14 percent black.
Frederick Malone, who was wearing and selling t-shirts reading “Black Men for Bernie” at a press event in Flint on Monday, told ThinkProgress that the more black voters hear about Sanders’ policies, the more they support him.
“Bernie’s been for the black people for a long time,” he said. When asked why Clinton has been winning Southern states with large black populations, Malone faulted it on Sanders’ speaking skills.
“Hillary, she expresses herself a lot better than Bernie,” he said. “Bernie, he can’t communicate all of the things he has done. He’s been at this a long time. He marched with Martin Luther King.”

"During her tenure as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton made weapons transfers to the Saudi government a “top priority,” according to a new report published in The Intercept. While Clinton’s State Department was deeply invested in getting weapons to Saudi Arabia, the Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars in donations from both the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the weapons manufacturer Boeing. Christmas presents were being gifted all around."

It always comes back to the foundation.

TYT: Hillary's Tactical Use Of Black Police Victims

I want to start this off by saying that I don't think Hillary Clinton is a racist or bigot. I feel that she uses groups as needed to reach her goals and I feel this video does a good job illustrating that. If you are for Hillary, especially if you are black. I'm not trying to belittle your opinion. Just trying to show you how I see Hillary.

FBI Said to Prepare to Interview Clinton Aides About E-Mai
