It’s been a tough seven days for Hillary Clinton.
The Democrats’ frontrunner for the presidential nomination lost catastrophically in five out of six primary contests to a self-avowed socialist who wants to return tax rates to 1930s levels.
The Washington Post reported that the secret server she used as Secretary of State lacked basic security measures for months. Federal prosecutors are escalating their criminal investigation, setting up interviews with top aides and possibly even Clinton herself.
This investigation will no doubt continue to plague her campaign “through most, if not all, of the remaining presidential primaries."
Voters can see through Hillary’s manufactured messaging to the weak candidate it disguises. As evidenced by the fact that heading into April, the base of the Democrat Party would rather keep a socialist afloat then rally around Clinton, their presumptive nominee.
The “Bernie Problem” isn’t going away.
But, this says more about Hillary’s weakness as a candidate than it does about Sanders’ strength.
Faced with the fatal flaws of her candidacy, Democrat voters are instead willing to take their chances on Bernie’s irrational policies.
And the longer that Bernie remains in the race, the less time and resources she has to convince them that she should be their candidate.
It might already be too late, with Sanders voters loudly proclaiming “Bernie or Bust” and vowing that they will never back Clinton. Said one Sanders supporter, “There are certain things about Clinton that are so unsavory and so undesirable that I can’t see myself legitimizing that with a vote.”
With members of her own party unable to get past her long track record of dishonesty, it’s no wonder that recent polls show her trailing multiple GOP candidates.
