South Carolina (Black) Democrats Still Love Hillary Clinton

MINORITY LOVE FROM STATE’S PERPETUAL MINORITY PARTY KEEPING CLINTON AFLOAT

Democrats in early-voting South Carolina aren’t bailing on their party’s frontrunner Hillary Clinton … at least not yet.

According to the latest CNN/ ORC polling, Clinton enjoys a 49-24 percent edge over her main rival for the Democratic nomination – independent socialist U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. U.S. vice president Joe Biden – who has yet to announce whether he will run for president – is currently polling at 18 percent among Palmetto State Democrats.

Should Biden not run, Clinton enjoys a whopping 70-30 lead over Sanders.

Wow …

The poll also showed Clinton with a similarly strong lead in Nevada – which holds its caucus one week prior to the Palmetto State’s “First in the South” primary.

“Clinton’s stronger support in Nevada and South Carolina could bolster her campaign heading in to the large batch of ‘Super Tuesday’ contests set to be held on March 1,” CNN’s polling director Jennifer Agiesta said.

Why is Clinton still so popular in South Carolina?  Easy: Blacks …

According to the new CNN/ ORC poll, 59 percent of black Democrats in South Carolina prefer Clinton compared to 27 percent who would support Biden (if he ran) and only four percent who back Sanders.

That’s an unbelievable spread … and further proof of the ongoing bond between black voters and establishment Democratic candidates (warranted or not).
