Bad News for Hillary Clinton
The New York Times reports that the surprisingly strong showing of Barack Obama’s campaign has radically eroded Hillary Clinton’s support among the black establishment. They warn “that could signal trouble for Mrs. Clinton, forcing her to devote precious attention to her home state, where blacks made up 20 percent of the Democratic primary vote in 2004, just as she has had to scramble to keep black support nationwide.”
Moreover, her poll numbers are dropping overall in her “home” state of New York, where she has had a steady drop in favorable ratings in the Sienna College poll, from 60 percent in January to 56 percent in March to 50 percent in April.
Finally, Bob Woodward’s Watergate sidekick, Carl Bernstein, has a 640-page biography of Clinton coming out in June.
They say bad news comes in threes . . . .
