GOPís Biggest 2016 Problem: Clintonís Numbers Among White Voters
Daily Beast ^ | 06.09.14 | Lloyd Green

Posted on 06/20/2014 7:54:40 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal

Hillary Clinton’s strength among white voters is the key to 2016—and it spells nearly certain defeat and disaster for Republicans.

Culture will likely shape the 2016 presidential elections, and this is bad news for the Republican Party. Recent polls show Hillary Clinton running well among white voters overall, showing real strength among white non-evangelical Protestants, and running competitively among white Catholics. Trailing only among evangelicals, Clinton is poised to move beyond the upstairs-downstairs coalition that brought Barack Obama to the White House, and that continues to characterize his policies and presidency to this day.

Consider the source.
It’s The Daily Beast.
Does the name Kirsten Powers ring any bells?
I rest my case.
This posting from Daily Beast needs to be taken with about 5 pounds of salt.....IMHO.

CRUSTY THE PANTSUIT
(To the tune of “Frosty the Snowman”)
(by FR’s own C. Henrickson) Ho ho ho!

Crusty the pantsuit
Was like clothes that you’d discard,
With a sweat-stained top
And a stretched-out butt
And two legs that smelled like lard.

Crusty the pantsuit
Was pulled out most ev’ry day.
As she put it on,
Hilly sang this song:
“Black is slimming, so they say.”

She must have bought the pantsuit from
A wizard or an elf,
For when she took it off at night,
It stood up all by itself!
Oh . . .

Crusty the pantsuit
Was a fashion felony,
But the Freepers say,
“We can laugh and play
With these threads on Hillary.”

Frumpety frump frump,
Frumpety frump frump,
Look at Crusty glow.

Rumpety rump rump,
Rumpety rump rump,
Over the Hill we go!

Charlie Henrickson

I think Hilliary’s the Dem’s Bob Dole of 2016 with “It’s my turn”. I think she stepped aside in 2008 with the promise of full backing from Democratic party (yes that include media).

Hill’s problem is the Dems including the media are dishonest by definition. If they don’t think they can drag her fat butt across the finish line, they’ll cut and run in a heartbeat.

Sorry, Hilliary. it’s the Chicago way :-)

I wouldn’t worry too much about this kind of thing, regardless of name recognition and such at this point, white voters are the portion of the electorate most likely to actually watch the primaries and hear the arguments, and many of them will shift away from Hillary as the campaigns set to work and the facts start becoming more known.

In the end, Hillary won’t be winning the white vote, unless we do something really stupid, something so stupid that it is romneyesque.

And we can “ain’t buy it” all the way to yet another WH defeat. Our numbers shrink as theirs grow. Every single poll makes it clear Clinton will win in a walk away. At the moment, we have no upside. But if we just sit around and deny the sun is shining then just let’s all turn off the cpu and just wait til the comet hits because it is truly all over.

“Recent polls show Hillary Clinton running well among white voters overall...”

Maybe single white women. Historically, married white women & white men vote Republican. By race, 59% of whites voted for Romney in 2012. White men voted for Romney at 62%.

” In 2004, Bush got fifty-five per cent of the white female vote, and Kerry got forty-four per cent—a “reverse gender gap” (one working in the G.O.P.’s favor) of eleven points. In 2008, McCain got fifty-three per cent of the white female vote, and Obama got forty-six per cent—a gap of seven points. Compared to four years earlier, the reverse gender gap in this demographic had decreased by four points, indicating that the Democrats were making progress in attracting the votes of white women. But this year, that trend turned around again. Far from narrowing further, the reverse gender gap among white women widened to fourteen points. Romney got fifty-six per cent of the white female vote; Obama got just forty-two per cent.”

http://www.newyorker.com/online/blogs/johncassidy/2012/11/why-white-women-voted-for-romney.html

From the same link, why did Obama win in 2012?

“Ninety-six per cent of black women voted for Obama; seventy-six per cent of Hispanic women voted for him; and so did sixty-six per cent of women of other races, including Asians.”

The married divide worked this way:

“Nearly a quarter of the voters in Tuesday’s election were unmarried women – and Obama captured more than two-thirds of their votes, 67%, according to research...Mitt Romney actually did better than Obama among married women, outperforming the president by seven points.”

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/nov/09/single-women-voted-favour-obama

Sorry, but I’m not buying the idea that Hillary is attractive to white women voters.

Yes.

Why shouldn’t I be frightened of empty headed morons whose vote affects my life directly?

Why shouldn’t I be afraid of people who base their vote on a condom?

Why shouldn’t I be afraid of people who base their vote on the legality of murdering babies?

Why shouldn’t I be afraid of people who believe anything anyone tells them?

You tell me, because I just as soon not have anything to do with them at this point.

OH NO!! Not the purists!!! Those wascally conservatives who don’t like abortion and homosexual marriage and bailouts and shamnesty?! Stop the damn presses, because these purists are going to ruin another RINOs shot at the White House.

Of course, whenever the ‘purists’ do win and the RINOs like Dick Lugar and Bill Bolling and Mark Kirk jump ship to side with Democrats, and those Republican state legislators in Virginia who are now backing Warner for re-election... no, thats just pragmatism, you see. Can’t have any conservatives in office. They might embarrass all our great candidates! You know, like Tommy Thompson or Rick Berg or Pete Hoekstra or that eBay lady who had more money than God.

You see, this is Karl Rove’s party, and the purists cannot be allowed to prevent Karl and co from getting their Adelson and Chamber of Crony Capitalism bonuses. That’s just how it is. So accept Obamacare and accept all the left wing agendas. Just shut up and vote, ignorant Tea Partiers.

Re: “Sorry, but I’m not buying the idea that Hillary is attractive to white women voters.”

No matter whom the Democrats nominate in 2016, the Republican candidate must get at least 60% of the white vote to win.

That is not easy.

From memory - Reagan was the last guy to do that, in 1984, when he got 66%.

Romney got 59% of whites in 2012, and he still lost to Obama by 4%.

Most likely, Hillary would lose some of Obama’s massive ethnic support.

But, in my opinion, if we can't hit 60% of white voters in 2016, the GOP is going to lose the White House.

I agree.

Right now, we don't have a campaign or even a nominee at this point. Her corruption and incompetence, especially while SOS, will come out in the course of a campaign as long as we don't get the GOP nominee saying dumb things like, “she was a fine SOS. We just disagree on the issues.” Or, even better, “you have nothing to fear from a Clinton presidency” while in the heat of a campaign!!!

I think he's just disheartened by the number the media presents as having fallen hook, line and sinker for the left.

We have a large number of conservative women in my family, and I'm seeing more and more of them come out around me. However I can easily tell you that as a single young man, I felt there was a seemingly overwhelming number who were radical leftists.

There are many wonderful American woman, they just don't get as much face time in the media as the leftist nut jobs do, same as the men. : D
