Only months ago Hillary Clinton was considered a shoo-in with minority voters in the 2016 race for the White House: African Americans stick around every election cycle; Hispanics also lean left during national contests; gays come out (okay, pun intended) of the woodwork.
But Hillary’s rocky rollout, conjoined with several scandals during her time a Secretary of State, has made the Democrat darling’s future less certain with some traditional voters.
KANNAPOLIS, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man’s obituary asked two things of friends and family: instead of sending flowers for the funeral, give the money to charity. And don’t vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
WSOC-TV reports the family of 81-year-old Larry Upright added the political message to the obituary announcing the Kannapolis man’s death and burial this week.
Upright’s daughter, Jill McLain, said the rock-ribbed Republican was passionate about politics. She says that recollection prompted his family to ask obituary readers to reject Clinton’s presidential bid.
Mike Upright said his deceased father voiced his opinions regularly. [more from dead Mike here]
If it catches on this is not good news for Hillary, since the deceased have long been a core Democrat constituency, dating back to the Lyndon Johnston administration and before.
Saddle up Team Hillary.
You’re hemorrhaging supporters.
