SO SHE’S GOT THAT GOING FOR HER …
It’s been nothing short of a disastrous few days for the presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton.
It’s full-fledged freakout time for Democrats (and for that matter establishment “Republicans”). There’s even talk of trying to replace Clinton on the November ballot with another candidate … like U.S. vice president Joe Biden.
Against this backdrop, Clinton received some good news … albeit in a state she would probably win even if she were deceased: Massachusetts.
Uber-liberal Bay State voters still overwhelmingly approve of Clinton as their presidential choice – favoring her by 54-28 margin over GOP nominee Donald Trump, according to a new WBUR survey. Libertarian party nominee Gary Johnson gets nine percent of the vote while Green party nominee Jill Stein is supported by four percent of voters.
Worth noting? This data was collected from September 7-10 (prior to Clinton’s recent health scare) but our guess is any concerns over the Democratic nominee’s fitness for office will only pad Johnson and Stein’s numbers.
Massachusetts hasn’t gone “Republican” in a presidential election since 1984, when Ronald Reagan narrowly defeated Walter Mondale in the state by a 51-48 percent margin.
