Clinton Dominates Bernie in WABE Poll

Tuesday’s Democratic primary in Georgia is shaping up to be even more underwhelming as the Republican race, according to a WABE poll.

Hillary Clinton has 61.5% of all likely Georgia Democratic voters backing her campaign and Bernie Sanders has 29.3%. The only area where Sanders is competitive is with young voters. He splits that vote with Clinton.

On Thursday, WABE released the results of their GOP primary polling and both that and the Dem poll mirror what WXIA found in their polling of both parties’ primaries.

I would love to hear why African American Democrats are supporting Hillary over Sanders? The Clintons family between trade policy, immigration policy, foreign policy, War on Drugs/Three Strikes and you are out…..have been horrible for the community by any measure. The Pew institute pointed out that ending the Clinton War on Drugs policy would eliminate 30 percent of poverty. Why would anyone think that would change under president Hillary who is bought and paid for by the private prison industry? Please help me understand?

Please do not say electability because Trump will destroy her one on one on the above…..

“Please help me understand?”

John, you’re asking that question as though anything in this race–for either party–makes sense or is subject to the normal rules of reality.

Very valid point, what is bizarre, the big issue in the lower income ares ie BLM movement is all about criminal justice. The Clintons created the environment that caused the majority of problems. Irronically the Koch brothers from the right get the problem, while Hillary racks more cash from the lobbyist.

You watch not one Hillary supporter will come up with any real defense.

If you can figure out why there are so many “Richard Lankford for sherriff” signs in SW Atlanta it’s probably the same answer.

The last time Hillary was in the White House it took a team of lawyers to get our furniture back. She’s way more clever.

Here’s an essential answer to your question, John. Because she can win, because she’s a known quantity, and because she’s enough of an orthodox politician to reward loyalty. The African-American vote in 1992 and 1996 wasn’t going to make or break Bill Clinton, and he legislated accordingly. That is fundamentally untrue today — a weak turnout by black voters will kill Clinton’s campaign and she knows it. There’s no percentage in triangulating this time around. More to the point: she’s enough of a politician to understand that. Sanders, though I love his policies and his approach, has no reputation for… Read more »

George, We are friends and I hope you take my comments in that spirit. 1) “black voters are expecting Hillary Clinton to make up for the mistakes of Bill Clinton in office” Sounds like battered wife expecting different behavior. You discount the fact it was not a mistake it was bought, and paid for policy driven by lobbyist. You know I gave you facts from the left showing the donations the Clintons’ got connected to the policies that hurt the AA community. Does it not bother you Hillary is using the same lobbyist to run now, the only difference is… Read more »

I just want to address point 3, that the Clintons are somehow unable to outslug Donald Trump. When Trump attacked Bill, the Clintons didn’t swing back, because they didn’t have to at the time. I imagine if Trump tries the same line of attack on Bill/Hillary again, the Clintons won’t hesitate to mention Ivana’a rape allegations, Trump’s multiple affairs, and the sexual assault allegations that have been brought against the Donald. Trump calling out Bill Clinton on his treatment of women is the textbook definition of the pot calling the kettle black. The Clintons can fight in the mud with… Read more »

Andrew,

Ivana has already endorsed Trump, and said glowing things about him, not like the Monica situation, who was an intern working for Clinton a few years over the legal age. I am not defending Trump, but strange allegations happen during divorces, not like an employer 40 years older than the employee. Trust me, this would be a stupid attack, as the media compares the situation. Bill and Hillary would just drop further in the polls…

Andrew C. Pope

So Trump can bring up previously debunked rape allegations but the Clinton camp can’t? Clinton/Trump will be an exceedingly scummy campaign. Trump is great at overt bullying, but the Clintons are OGs at mudslinging. The Clintons invented birther-ism. Trump is late to the game. I think Clinton/Trump is a bad bad matchup for the Republicans. Trump is a candidate with zero substance and no support outside his base of drunk uncles. Clinton has play with moderates and independents. The chances of grabbing the Senate and the threat of a Trump boogeyman will likely allow her to maintain turnout from the… Read more »

Huh? The Monica Lewinski scandal was never ” debunked”? In fact Hillary shamed her in public and never apologized, even after the truth came out. You know President Clinton did violated the rights of the workers at the White House? We have very clear rules at the work place, and beyond cheating on his wife with a teenager, this is a clear case of sexual discrimination at the work place. Do you really not understand how wrong what Billy and Hillary did?

Andrew C. Pope
Andrew C. Pope

I was referencing earlier, non-Lewinsky, allegations.

My larger point, which you didn’t refute, was that anything Bill Clinton has done, Trump has done the same or worse.

Plus, to the best of my knowledge, Bill hasn’t made repeated allusions to wanting to bang his daughter.

John Konop

Hillary defense for shaming Monica is Trump said some stuff that was not PC? We saw how that worked out in last exchange, Bill fell more than 10 points and Hillary got a real opponent who was not even close. HUH????

I recognize a Sisyphean task when I see one. If you think the tired talking points the right lost in in the 90s will magically work two decades later, be my guest.

Andrew,

That is not a talking point, as a father of a daughter it goes way deeper, obviously you are not a parent.

But again, what makes Trump a valid vessel for delivering that message? He has the same exact baggage. And I’m really not seeing why Bill’s misdeeds are somehow Hillary’s misdeeds.

“Oh no! She aggressively defended her husband! The scandal! The horror!”

Andrew, Trump has never had work place violations of sleeping with teenage employees that work for him. I will remind you Clinton was in his 50’s….This was way bigger than his other affairs he admitted to like Jennifer Flowers, because it was a work place violation. Do you really not understand why the boss cannot sleep with workers especially teenage interns? When Bill Clinton was the boss he was working for tax payers. This is not about Dem or GOP it is about taking advantage of people. I have been 100% consistent on this issue no matter what party, I… Read more »

How did Hillary violate the rights of WH workers? Did Hillary sleep with Monica, too? I think you’re confusing the 90s with House of Cards.

If you want to believe that short-fingered fingered vulgarian has never done the horizontal mambo with an employee, well it’s your right to be naive

John Konop

Really? Bill was sleeping with an employee teenager, and when it became public by Monica the victim, Hillary called her naressisstic looney toone, and Hillary was working in the White House. You really wonder if Hillaty violated her rights as an employee? Do you not understand, Monica got a nice settlement for this?

Benevolus

For the record, I’m pretty sure she wasn’t a teenager, and secondly, I don’t think anyone claimed they were “sleeping together”.

This was from the LEFT…Bill was caught and Hillary tried to cover it up! ………Years from now, when we look back on Bill Clinton’s presidency, its defining moment may well be Clinton’s rationalization to the grand jury about why he wasn’t lying when he said to his top aides that with respect to Monica Lewinsky, “there’s nothing going on between us.” How can this be? Here’s what Clinton told the grand jury (according to footnote 1,128 in Starr’s report): “It depends on what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is. If the–if he–if ‘is’ means is and never has been,… Read more »

John. I want you to take all the criticisms you’ve just made. And I want you to compare them, as objectively as you can, to how Republicans govern with regard to affirmative action, anti-discrimination enforcement in jobs and housing and education, police brutality, income inequality — and don’t give me the jacked-up line about trickle-down economics and what not; no one is buying it — urban transportation and infrastructure development, the provision of social services like — yes — Medicaid and SNAP and HUD funding, and even the frank admission that racism affects black people’s economic outcomes. Compare these things,… Read more »

George, You have known me for a while, and probably seen some of the numerous articles even in the AJC, and post I have made. I have been very outspoken about bashing gays, blacks……I am anti affirmative action, but would have always been very pro equal opportunity. In the companies I have run, could carless about race, gender……all about performance. Second I am economic conservative with a pragmatic side. I have very thick skin, and tend to look at policy over the personal BS. With that said, it all about follow the money. Third, I lean toward a Trump over… Read more »

You asked why black people support Clinton over Trump. I think I’ve given justifiable reasons. You don’t like the reasons, but that’s irrelevant.

We’re still friends. I fear you’re making a terrible moral error, but politics is no reason alone to damage a friendship.

George,

In all due respect, I asked why they would support Clinton over Sanders. Glad we are still friends.

Dude. He gate you an answer. As did Andrew. You don’t like the answers fine. But no one is avoiding answering. Honestly, I don’t know you other than reading your comments here (and at PP). But for sometime, I have believed you were level headed. But your comments on this post are leading me to believe that was not the case. If you don’t like Hillary, fine. But to sit there and defend Trump in the way you are doing is in my opinion disgusting. It appears that you are willing to compromise your values (as I perceive them) just… Read more »
