Re: News Unfiltered Digest: Polling African Americ

Interesting part of the poll about Clinton and Obama:


The survey also showed a significant gender gap in Sen. Clinton's
support among African Americans, with 86 percent of women giving her a
favorable rating and seven percent unfavorable, compared to a 78 percent
favorable and 15 percent unfavorable rating by men. With regard to Sen.
Obama, there was no significant gender difference in his
favorable/unfavorable ratings.

AA women are supporting Clinton just like other women. All things policy being more or less equal women are choosing to opt for putting Clinton in the white house because she seems to be the strongest candidate and they have decided it is time dammit!  Good

This is an old poll. Oct.5-Nov.2nd

Just being released Nov. 27th 25 days after their last polling date.

If you ran their poll this week, their would be vast differences in their support. Clinton's MSM coverage this past month after the Oct. 30th debate has been mostly negative.

yes the media has decided they want a horse race and they have been lying about Clinton for weeks. But it has only changed numbers slightly.  I doubt these numbers would change that much either.

African-American voters are sick of corruption.  Hence why they will support Hillary.
