Florida African American Voters Have the Hillary Campaign in ‘Full Panic Mode’

(Before It's News)


Politico reports that Democrats are worried that too many African-American voters in Florida are uninspired by Hillary Clinton, leading her campaign to hit the panic button:

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.”

Hillary’s panicked campaign is sending former president Bill Clinton on a North Florida bus tour Friday and Hillary herself will host events in Broward and St. Lucie counties, which have black populations higher than the statewide average. That’s not all. President Barack Obama is expected to campaign in Florida at least twice before Election Day and Michelle Obama will likely campaign Florida as well — in addition to the ad she already cut for Hillary.

All of that follows the events of this past weekend, when black mothers who have lost children to gun violence hosted a Clinton organizing event in Jacksonville and a voter-registration drive in Opa-Locka.

According to Politico, an average of the last three Florida polls that provided racial breakdowns shows she’s polling less than 85 percent among African-American voters in Florida. In addition to the polling, the panic is also caused by concern that African-American voters may not turn out in force for Hillary in Florida.
