What is Hillary's strategy?

Recommended Posts

She had a commanding 8 point lead in National polls which has fallen to below 5 recently and Fox news polls are reporting a lead of only 2 points which is too close for comfort. In the meantime the conservative news media is bringing up her email scandal and Clinton Foundation reducing her favorability ratings. I understand that this is mostly a political ploy by the right but this is lowering her numbers. Clinton Foundation is a charitable organization that is helping save lives but her campaign is not saying this. Why? What is her strategy to counter this kind of press coverage? On the other hand, Trump has numerous scandals in his name hiring undocumented polish workers, Trump University, Trump model management etc. Why isn't her campaign hitting him hard with these issues.

Hillary just finished a big fund-raising swing which, by all accounts has enlarged her war-chest considerably. It remains to be seen how she uses it. One of her problems is widespread distrust by the electorate, stemming largely, from her co-presidential role in the Clinton administration.

 

Der Trumpfkopfk's teflon coating appears to still be intact. His business career reveals him to be a dangerous sociopath. The part of the public that is impressed with his red-meat charisma will need long and loud exposure to Mein Trumpf's past record before they start to realize what a contemptible lout he really is.

The problem as I see it from personal interactions with others: Republicans, Independents, conservatives, and some moderates, primarily, is that, while they believe Trump is a whackjob, they aren't certain that we've seen the Real Trump. They do, however, feel that they've seen, over the years, the Real Hillary. They DO find her scary. Interestingly, many of those I have talked to feel that Hillary is equally likely to start, cause, or get us involved in a war, possibly nuclear. They see her as someone who is out for taking care of Hillary, and that she doesn't actually care about the people of America. Not that they feel Trump does, but they definitely feel that Hillary only cares about the Clinton self-interest.

The Clinton campaign has sadly mistaken the contempt of Trump, and his self inflicted wounds, as a groundswell of support for her.
Since the convention, they have reverted back to 'coronation' mode, and left progressives, and the Democratic platform in the dust,
while she takes a hard right turn.

Her campaign launched the "Republicans for Hillary" effort. Instead of using Trump against the Republican Party,
she is embracing Republican establishment like Paul Ryan.

In a recent speech, Clinton referred to former Sen. Bob Dole, former president George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain, noting,
“We need that kind of leadership again.” She added that she was honored to receive support from Republicans.

A small example of her sense of entitlement...

 

August 16th:
Hillary named former Colorado Democratic Senator and Interior Secretary Ken Salazar to be the chair of her presidential transition team —the group tasked with helping set up the new administration.

John Podesta: “While our campaign remains focused on the task at hand of winning in November, Hillary Clinton wants to be able to get to work right away as President-elect..."

Salazar is widely considered a reliable friend to the oil, gas, ranching and mining industries. He opened the Arctic Ocean for oil drilling, and oversaw the botched response to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. He has been an ardent supporter of the TPP, while pushing back against curbs on fracking.

Tim Kaine voted to authorize fast-track powers for the TPP and praised the agreement just two days before he was chosen.

Clinton spent August crisscrossing the country on a money hunt in the summer locales of the wealthy and the well-to-do.
Her efforts brought in $143 million from these events.Taking advantage of recent court rulings, and new campaign finance laws, her
largest donors were writing checks for $350,000 or more (remember Bernie's average contribution of $27.00?).

Clinton has not mentioned the Democratic platform in any meaningful way since the convention ended. It appears to have been wiped clean.
