In the wake of the latest revelations from the FBI, WikiLeaks, and others in the mainstream media, it seems that Democrats are now actually deciding to abandon the Clinton campaign for President.
Over the last few days several high-profile Democrats have come out and argued against voting for Hillary Clinton for many of the reasons that have her doing so poorly in the polls today.
Here’s what MSNBC’s Chris Matthews had to say to anyone who was still voting for Hillary Clinton:
“Whatever you think of Donald Trump, I mean, whatever you think of Donald Trump, you have to wonder, why is he doing it? Why is he running for president? Why is he spending every hour asking the voters again and again: Do you like the way things are, the way they’ve been headed in this country? Do you like to continue the destruction of our manufacturing base, and the jobs that went with it? Do you like the uncontrolled illegal immigration? Do you like the string of stupid wars from Iraq to Libya to Syria?
If you want to say yes to all of that, you want to keep all this the way it is, vote for Hillary Clinton. If you don’t like the way things have been headed you got a chance to really shake the system to its roots. And if you wake up the day after the election and it’s the same as it is today, if its the same 4 or 5 or 8 years from now, remember you had the chance to change it, but you were to dainty too do it.
I say this not because I want Trump to win, but because I can’t stand politics being practiced so pathetically.”
Another Democrat stalwart and former employee of Bill Clinton, Doug Schoen, also renounced his support of Clinton over the weekend.
However, in good conscience, and as a Democrat, I am actively doubting whether I can vote for the Secretary of State. I also want to make clear that I cannot vote for Donald Trump as his world view and mine are very different.
I remain a Democrat and proud of the work I did for six years for President Bill Clinton between 1994 and 2000 and I write with extreme sadness. But I cannot in the waning days of the election make the case that Secretary Clinton should be elected.
I still share her worldview and am much closer to her approach to policies than I am to Donald Trump. That said, with America facing a potential constitutional crisis after her election, I am not able, under the circumstances we are now facing, to vote for Secretary Clinton.
It’s not just these famous Democrats who are souring on Hillary Clinton. The American corner of the Internet has been ablaze in recent days with people searching for advice on how to go about changing their “early” vote!
I was browsing Twitter when something caught my eye; a Google Trends graph that showed popular search trends. Apparently, the news that the FBI was reopening the Clinton email investigation is causing folks to have second thoughts about voting for her. It’s a story I covered yesterday, detailing several theories about the emails and investigation itself.
The graph showed a spike in the search term, “can you change your early vote?” The phrase was practically nonexistent, snaking along a seven-day graph at zero until around 5 p.m. on Friday evening, when it shot up to a search interest volume index of 100 suddenly. Interestingly, the phrase, “I’m with her” plummeted to just over 25 at the same time.
If you are one of those people who’d like to change your early vote – here are some helpful tools that you can use to figure out if you can fix your early mistake.
It seems that more and more Americans are waking up to the truth, Hillary Clinton is wholly undeserving of being President and they’re turning away from her in ever growing numbers. I guess it’s better late than never.
