Black Voters Yawning at Hillary Outreach

Hillary was carried through the primaries by black voters. They're her only hope of winning the White House. There's only one little problem for the hot sauce panderer. ..

Democrats are beginning to worry that too many African-American voters are uninspired by Clinton’s candidacy

"Hillary Clinton's campaign is in panic mode. Full panic mode," said Leslie Wimes, a South Florida-based president of the Democratic African-American Women Caucus.

"They have a big problem because they thought Obama and Michelle saying, 'Hey, go vote for Hillary' would do it. But it's not enough," Wimes said, explaining that too much of the black vote in Florida is anti-Trump, rather than pro-Clinton. "In the end, we don't vote against somebody. We vote for somebody."

And nobody is actually voting for Hillary. Hillary stimulates zero enthusiasm from her supporters. Why would African-Americans be inspired by an utterly uninspiring candidate?

Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, one of Clinton’s highest-profile black leaders in the state, acknowledged that he saw “varying levels of enthusiasm” for Clinton at a recent event. 

 

It varies all the way from bored to disinterested.

Though he said “it’s hard to recapture that level of enthusiasm” Obama enjoyed in 2008, he’s confident young black voters will show up to the polls for Clinton.

Maybe if there were a song...

That lack of excitement worries Henry Crespo, president of the Miami-based Florida Democratic Black Caucus.

“No one is writing songs for Hillary. Obama had will.i.am. Hillary has nobody like that,” said Crespo.

Great. Now there just needs to be a hit song about Hillary. Should be a snap.
