In 2008, Hillary was considered the presumptive Democrat nominee. Pundits said that she’d win the nomination, then win the general election. They were wrong both with both predictions. This Quinnipiac Swing State Poll must be close to Hillary’s nightmare scenario.

What do you think she’s thinking when she sees that Trump is tied with Mrs. Clinton in Ohio and that he leads Mrs. Clinton in Pennsylvania and Florida? Imagine Mrs. Clinton reading “The presidential matchups show: Florida – Trump at 42 percent to Clinton’s 39, compared to a 47-39 percent Clinton lead June 21; Ohio – Clinton and Trump tied 41-41 percent, compared to a 40-40 percent tie June 21; Pennsylvania – Trump at 43 percent to Clinton’s 41 percent, compared to June 21, when Clinton had 42 percent to Trump’s 41 percent.”

If Mrs. Clinton lost those 3 states, she’d lose to Trump. It’s that simple. I can’t picture Mrs. Clinton losing Pennsylvania but winning North Carolina. That just doesn’t seem possible. These statistics are part of this RedState post with a headline glaring “Hillary Loses Ground After Outspending Trump $57M to $4M.”

This is just part of the pattern for Hillary. She’s outspending Trump by orders of magnitude but she’s losing ground to him while outspending Trump.

What’s more troubling for Hillary is that she won’t get Bernie Sanders’ voters in the percentages that she’d hoped for:

Some of Bernie Sanders’ most loyal backers have turned into his biggest bashers on the heels of his Hillary Clinton endorsement.

The Vermont senator, who slammed Clinton repeatedly during the presidential primary campaign, offered his unwavering support to the presumptive Democratic nominee at a rally in New Hampshire Tuesday. “Hillary Clinton will make a great president and I am proud to stand with her today,” he said.

What followed was an avalanche of angry tweets, blogs and other social media posts from those who had been feeling the ‘Bern’ — and now just feel burned. In New York, Monroe County Sanders activist Kevin Sweeney told the Democrat & Chronicle he’s shifting his donations to Green Party candidate Jill Stein. “A lot of Bernie supporters are making $27 donations to Jill Stein’s campaign today,” he said.

This won’t blow over anytime soon. Some of Bernie’s supporters are true believers. A woman named Ashley Marie tweeted “Used to be a Bernie fan but now that he’s joined Hillary, who supports everything he’s supposedly against, I’m a Trump fan. #NeverHillary” Dan LaMorte tweeted “Bernie Sanders endorsing Hillary Clinton feels so much like when the girl you love starts dating the guy you hate most.”

Perhaps, the best tweet came from Craig, who said “Revolution? I guess political revolution meant something different to Bernie. I was willing to fight corruption to the death. #NeverHillary”

Apparently, Bernie’s supporters were true believers. Apparently, true believers don’t fit with Hillary’s people.

This doesn’t mean Hillary will lose this November. It just means Hillary’s team will need to order tons more Maalox.

    Sorehead sweepstakes:

    Aside from that, Trump VP sweepstakes – my bet, Pence.

    One day before the announcement.

    Just think of what the polls would look like if the Republicans were running a human being against Hillary.

  • Chad Q says:

    The polls would be far more in Hillary’s favor if the Republicans were “running a human” because the people are tired of what the Republicans have been putting up as candidates the last two presidential cycles. Just look at all the “humans” Trump rolled over to get the presumptive nomination. No one wanted them, they wanted Trump. I’m no Trump supporter but I’ll hold my nose in November to vote for Trump just like I did for McCain and Romney. Better Trump than Hillary.

  • Bob J. says:

    Trump received 44 percent of the total Republican vote, IIRC, yet got a majority of the delegates. Yet he’s the one who complains the system is ‘rigged’. Riiiiiight.

    Your liberal is no better than theirs. The Republican Party is about to endorse the only one of its major candidates who cannot beat Hillary Clinton.

    Never Trump. Never Clinton. Neither one is fit for office.

    [ I’ll hold my nose in November to vote for Trump just like I did for McCain and Romney.]

    Oh … and you’re part of the problem rather than part of the solution.

  • eric z says:

    I would imagine the Republicans would be STRONGER TOGETHER.

  • Chad Q says:

    A) He’s not my liberal (see how many times I’ve said he’s not my guy in previous posts)

    B) And your solution is? Stay home and pout or vote for an unknown? I’m sure Hillary and Nolan love your support.

    C) If Trump can’t beat Hillary, how come he’s leading in some of the polls? I don’t think any of the other GOP candidates were ever shown to beat Hillary in a head to head.

    I don’t like Trump but if he’s the nominee, as Eric Z stated above, we are stronger TOGETHER.
