Americans of the conservative and libertarian political ideologies have long awaited the news that former secretary of state and presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton would be brought down by her mounting scandals.
Not to get too hopeful, but it appears that such news may have been just delivered, by Hillary’s own campaign no less.
According to The Hillary Daily, it would seem that Clinton’s campaign is bracing for the increasingly likely possibility that she will lose the all-important early primary elections in both Iowa and New Hampshire to self-declared socialist and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
A recent email blast by the campaign to Clinton’s supporters urged them to be “realistic” and cautioned that “winning the nomination is no sure thing,” before begging for more donations to the campaign.
The message stated, “If we lose in Iowa or New Hampshire, we’re going to need to dig in and work that much harder to make sure we win the nomination. I’m going to fight as hard as I can to earn every last vote.”
This glum message from the Clinton campaign came in the wake of a recent poll that revealed her once monumental lead over Sanders in Iowa has shrunk to a mere 5 percentage points, nearly within the margin of error. Sanders has led Hillary in New Hampshire since the beginning of the race.
If the Clinton campaign is publicly warning their supporters to brace for losses in those two states based on public polling data, that suggests that their internal polling data may look even worse.
It still remains highly likely that Clinton will win the South Carolina primary, owing largely to the failure of the Sanders campaign to make any inroads with black Democrat voters, though Hillary may be in danger of taking those same voters for granted herself.
Should Clinton lose both Iowa and New Hampshire, and perhaps struggles to gain momentum in South Carolina and Nevada, she will most certainly be in trouble as the rest of the primary elections come rather quickly following the handful of early states.
We can only hope that is the case, as the United States will suffer greatly if a Hillary Clinton presidency follows and expands upon the destructive agenda set forth over the past eight years by President Barack Obama.
