Despite experiencing a lot of negative publicity over conducting official business on personal email servers and allegedly violating State Dept. protocol, Hillary Clinton is shining in the polls when it comes to Democrat presidential candidates. MSNBC has the news.
“Hillary Clinton has increased her dominant lead within the Democratic Party’s presidential contest, now besting rival Sen. Bernie Sanders by a margin of two to one among primary voters in the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.”
However, according to Fox News, Hillary is losing when it comes to being polled with Republicans. They stress that a new national poll shows nearly every major Republican candidate beating Hillary Clinton in a hypothetical general election. They claim that if Hillary went against Ben Carson today, he would lead by a 10-point margin.
Bill O’Reilly had Monica Crawley on his show last night and posted part of the discussion on his website.
“At least 671 emails that Mrs. Clinton sent or received through her private server contained classified material. Two of those documents reach the highest level of ‘top secret,’ and one document includes satellite data about North Korea’s nuclear weapons program.”
Crawley added that the document is an open-and-shut violation and that the FBI already has enough information to build a case against her on obstruction of justice and the poor handling of data. She wonders if Attorney General Loretta Lynch will take on Hillary Clinton or decline to do so because of her political leanings.
Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton isn’t letting the email scandal stop her from campaigning. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Clinton netted $1 million at a fundraiser held by Christina Aguilera.
“Katie Holmes, Muse singer Matthew Bellamy and former 4 Non Blondes singer Linda Perry (who wrote Aguilera’s hit song ‘Beautiful’) were among the celebs who mingled with Clinton on her fifth fundraising trip to Los Angeles.”
The article adds that Gangster Squad actress Ambyr Childers, Lone Survivor producer Randall Emmett, and music industry leader Irving Azoff were also in the audience. Besides Christina Aguilera, Hillary Clinton has another pop star fan — Katy Perry.
According to People, Katy Perry performed a concert at a Hillary Clinton rally in Iowa. After Bill Clinton introduced her, Perry performed “America the Beautiful,” “Firework,” “Wide Awake,” and “Roar” for Ms. Clinton.
“How many of you are going to be 18 next year, before November? Are you going to vote? Because you know you have the power, right? Listen, you have so much power and this is going to be one of the most important elections in over a decade,” Perry told her fans.
Clinton may have found fans in female pop stars, but she has been aggressively slammed by Bernie Sanders, another Democrat candidate. According to the Wall Street Journal, Sanders believes that there are valid concerns about Mrs. Clinton’s emails, especially if classified information was compromised. He appears to support an FBI investigation into Hillary’s emails. However, many on Twitter have called him out for being vindictive.
As of right now, Hillary Clinton looks like she will easily clinch the Democrat nomination. However, it is still somewhat early in the game and anything can happen. Do you think Hillary Clinton will end up being president? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
