Why is Hillary Clinton Behind in the Polls?
There are probably many reasons why Hillary Clinton is behind in the polls. Personally, I think it probably has to do with something that people in this country put great stock in; popularity. Of course, one cannot entirely trust the polls because there is always a margin of error in all of them. The poll numbers of both Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton seemed to sway back and forth, but I tend to believe the lies that favor Bernie Sanders. Personally, I think the poll numbers of Hillary Clinton may be manipulated by the Democratic National Committee(DNC), mostly because of the bias of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who has been a very strong supporter of Hillary Clinton. There has been a lot of pressure lately for Wasserman Schultz resigned her position because many members of the DNC, because they feel that her bias in favor of Hillary Clinton is wrong.
I think that Bernie Sanders popularity is greater than Hillary Clinton, because a few people really don’t trust Hillary Clinton for a variety of reasons. Hillary Clinton’s popularity seems to be lagging in some areas. Unfortunately, the line again Hillary Clinton’s popularity seems to have been put there by the right-wing, with a Benghazi witch-hunt; something that has been proven to have no real merit.
Personally, I think that Hillary Clinton’s lagging popularity is a because she has too many ties to Wall Street; something that cannot be said of Bernie Sanders. This is a good thing in helping to make Bernie Sanders popularity greater than Hillary Clinton’s popularity. Since most people in this country hate the banks and Wall Street, Hillary Clinton’s ties may hurt her in both the New Hampshire Democratic primary and the Iowa Democratic primary. That is, mostly because both areas of the country have been equally screwed over by the big banks and Wall Street speculators.
The fact that Bernie Sanders may be more popular than Hillary Clinton is simply because he has basically declared war on both these entities; the big banks and Wall Street. This is a position that Senator Sanders has taken for many years, and has been consistent in for as long as he has been in the U.S. Senate, and the House of Representatives before that.
Since Hillary Clinton is closely tied to Wall Street and the big banks, primarily because they are huge funding sources for her is something that will come back to bite her. Maybe she will wake up and smell the coffee when she loses the Iowa Democratic primary and the New Hampshire Democratic primary; something that is now very possible since Bernie Sanders poll numbers are so good. She may well wish that she had run the same type of grassroots race for the presidency that Bernie Sanders has run.
Despite that Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers are lagging behind those of Bernie Sanders and send her a very clear message that she has not won the presidency, not by a long shot. There is no way she or her followers can take it for granted that she could become president of the United States because Bernie Sanders is breathing down her neck, as she is smart enough to know it.
