How much longer can Hillary Clinton's sinking
presidential hopes stay afloat? (Newscom)
Election ’16: When South Carolina Democrats show up on Feb. 27 to vote in their party’s primary, will Hillary Clinton still be a candidate? Yes. But she could be on her way out.
Polls still show Clinton well ahead in the Palmetto State, leading Bernie Sanders 62% to 32.5%. But her support there is fading as enthusiasm for Sanders, who took more than 60% of the votes in the New Hampshire primary, is growing. As recently as late January, she was up by 40 percentage points in South Carolina. How could this be?
Maybe it’s in (large) part due to her compounding email troubles. That’s right, the scandal she’s “100% confident” she will be cleared of. That same messy situation that President Obama, who’s said he wants Clinton to succeed him rather than Sanders, said posed no risk to national security.
Throughout her email problem, Clinton has said that she neither sent nor received classified material on her personal email that was handled by a private server in her home.
When it turned out that more than 1,300 of her emails held classified information, she changed her defense. The material was designated as classified only after she sent or received it, her camp said.
But new information from Judicial Watch shows that Clinton’s personal email wasn’t the only one that had classified and top secret material. There was a wide breach in the Clinton State Department.Read the rest of this IBD editorial HERE.
