Bad News for Hillary Clinton=> Brexit Issues Are Driving Voters in US Battleground States
Newt Gingrich joined Chris Wallace today on FOX News Sunday.
Newt argued there are several parallels in the US as the movement behind the Brexit vote.
Newt is right.
The movement behind the Brexit vote is the same anti-establishment sentiment voters feel today against elites in Washington DC.
This will only help Donald Trump and destroy Hillary Clinton, the ultimate insider, in the general election.
CBS releases 2016 polls from battleground states like Florida, Colorado, and Wisconsin, showing that a significant number of voters are sympathetic to messages similar to the successful “Brexit” campaign in the UK’s EU Referendum.
From CBS News:
Battleground states are called battlegrounds for a reason: They’re often close, and 2016 looks like no exception.
Hillary Clinton holds narrow leads over Donald Trump across a number of key states of Florida (up three points, 44 to 41 percent); Colorado (Clinton 40 percent, Trump 39 percent); Wisconsin (Clinton up 41 percent to 36 percent) and North Carolina, which has flipped back and forth between the parties in the last two elections, where it’s Clinton 44 percent and Trump 42 percent.
In the wake of the Brexit referendum in the United Kingdom this week, many wondered if the same sentiments that drove voters to leave the UK, such as voter unease about the economic and cultural effects of globalization, were at work in the U.S. presidential election, too.
Similar sentiments underpin Donald Trump’s general election vote, though there is not yet enough for him to surpass Clinton. Trump is also competitive in large part because of partisanship, as rank-and file Republicans continue to get behind him, even as Republican leaders have been more lukewarm toward the way Trump is running his campaign.
