Gee…I wonder why…
The Pew polls states specifically that Obama’s problems have more to do with personal reasons than politics, and in recent weeks Hillary has made this campaign ALL about how she’s getting cheated because of sexism in the media, etc. So who else are these white women going to point their finger at?
Currently, just 46% of those who support Clinton for the nomination say the party will unite behind Obama if he is the nominee. In March, 58% of Clinton supporters said the party would rally behind Obama if he is the nominee. [...]
Recent declines in Obama’s image have been pronounced among whites – especially white women. Currently, just 43% of white women express a positive opinion of Obama, down from 56% in late February. [...]
The survey finds that as many 39% of Clinton’s female supporters believe that her gender has hurt her candidacy.
It’s pretty frustrating really, because everybody knows that without white women, you won’t win the presidency. It just can’t happen.
So here’s the billion dollar question…what will Hillary do to get these women back?
