It’s the economy stupid.
Even if we are to believe the polls, and I do not, these two presidential candidates are the most unpopular nominees in a generation. What has to be remembered is that people on the most part vote with the economy. If you look at the chart you’ll see that both Democrats and independents more importantly think the economy is doing well. Only Republicans think that the economy is doing badly. The Republicans live in a world of Fox News and they are told bad economic news day in Day Out. The rest of us live in the real world and see all of the cranes in the sky building new buildings in our cities, businesses opening and for the first time in a long time people are secure in their job and I truly believe they can find a better one if they wanted to. So yes right now seems a little bit dark for Hillary but people want to continue the upward trend of the economy. One would then ask why did Al Gore lose. Although I supported him and work hard on his campaign he did separate himself as much as he could from the President Clinton and more importantly President Clinton’s incredible economic Legacy. Hillary on the other hand has embraced President Obama and will have the president on the ground in key States making her case.
