Hillary New Hampshire Town Hall Empty

Hillary New Hampshire Town Hall Empty

Maybe New Hampshire isn’t ready for Hillary after all…

A Clinton campaign town hall event in Concord, New Hampshire held Thursday night was virtually empty.

Fox News’ Ed Henry attended the event and tweeted photos that showed what appeared to be more people on the stage than in attendance.

If you’re chomping at the bit to find out what Hillary thinks about Keystone, you’re going to have wait longer. She’ll get to it… eventually:

Polling data released Thursday showed Hillary lagging behind Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire by four points. From the Washington Times:

Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont is leading former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton in another poll on the early-voting state of New Hampshire in the race for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

Mr. Sanders was the choice of 35 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in the state, followed by Mrs. Clinton at 31 percent and Vice President Joseph R. Biden at 14 percent in the WBUR poll released this week. Mr. Biden has not yet announced his 2016 intentions.

Mr. Sanders led Mrs. Clinton by 15 points, 35 percent to 20 percent, among registered independent voters, while Mrs. Clinton had a 40 percent to 34 percent advantage among Democrats.

More voters said they have a favorable opinion of both Mr. Biden and Mr. Sanders than Mrs. Clinton. Sixty-six percent had a favorable view of Mr. Biden, compared to 19 percent with an unfavorable one, and Mr. Sanders had a 64 percent/15 percent favorable/unfavorable split.

Making matter worse, Politico reported Thursday evening that a cabal of Hillary donors is spooked by her fledgling poll numbers and overall poor primary performance. According to Politico, Clinton loyalists are most concerned by the fact that the FBI’s involvement into Hillary’s email mishandling means the investigation is out of the Clinton regime’s control:

Concerned about her “email fiasco” or the threat of “new Benghazis,” some of Hillary Clinton’s top Southeastern fundraisers fretted at times in a Wednesday conference call with her campaign, which insisted it had recently “defanged a lot of the criticism” of the Democratic presidential frontrunner.

The call, led by Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon and listened to by a POLITICO reporter, provided what sounded like a frank look at the campaign’s strengths and weaknesses — from Clinton’s slipping early state poll numbers to her sometimes-plodding crisis response.

In addition to bracing for more fallout over Clinton’s emails, the campaign will establish a “war room” to respond to next month’s congressional Benghazi hearings, Fallon said. He said a team will also be ready to push back against the pending release of a book by on-again-off-again Donald Trump consultant Roger Stone entitledThe Clintons’ War on Women.

But the emails Clinton mishandled as secretary of state are a more complicated and “unique animal,” Fallon said, because their monthly release by the Department of State is out of the campaign’s hands — as are “the reviews that the FBI’s doing.”

…Fort Lauderdale lawyer Mitchell Berger, who’s hosting an Oct. 2 fundraiser for Clinton at his home, said there’s “a fine line between apology and looking weak.”

Stressing that he was “not trying to be critical,” Berger said he appreciated the briefing, but he wondered aloud: “Is there a lesson learned? Because there will be five or six more of these between now and then. … There’s no question in my mind that between now and next November there will be new Benghazis and new emails.”

He said he hoped the lessons learned “are calculated into the next email fiasco.”

Fallon said he agreed with Berger’s observations.

For someone who has been running for president since 2007, you’d think Hillary would be better at it by now.

She can’t get better; she’s already maxed out. This is what happens when you are just an unlikable person.

    True. Hillary’s level of success is limited by the nature of her character. The nature of her character always catches up to her, sooner or later.

      It seems to me her character is only now just beginning to catch up with her. Up until now, she’s managed to get away with everything, losing only her job with the Democratic House Judiciary Committee Watergate team and having to surrender her law license to avoid suspension or disbarment. In exchange for flaunting the law with haughty detachment, losing lives by her incompetence, and banking millions for influence sold, seems a pretty light sentence.

“Fledgling” poll numbers? Maybe you mean “flagging.”

Using Hillary’s “H” campaign logo, a sign I saw online yesterday read “The “H” is silent in ‘Benghazi'”.

You can use the term “Selling-out” and “Hillary Clinton” in the same sentence, but it would never mean anything about tickets.

Compare that to 20’000 for Trump in Dallas.

Meaningful? In itself, no. What are other candidates drawing in the same venue right now? If Walker and Bush and O’Malley are packing the place, she’s in big trouble. But this is New Hampshire where small gatherings are traditional and the townsfolk expect to see the leading candidates over and over again. So it’s relative; still five months before the primary.

Old NH Primary joke: One Hampshirite says to another, “What do you think of Candidate X?” The other replies, “Dunno yet, only met him three times.”

Hillary’s biggest problem is she still has no simple, straight, plausible answers for the questions about her email and classified materials, even with months to come up with some. What will she do if – BIG if – some debate panelist next month asks her about one of the dozens of foreign companies who had applications languishing at State under her tenure, but who won swift approval after a big donation to the Clinton Foundation?

There are reportedly about 30 of them, and two foreign countries, who did just that. Not one who donated had their application rejected.

Whenever that is asked will be the end of her, or the beginning of the end.

Be careful what you wish for: last time, the Dems came up with Barack Obama instead of Hillary.

No more Clintons. No more Bushes. Do any of these people EVER retire? Ever go off the public tit? Ever? Can they take a hint? Do we have to go full rude and tell them to get lost? Go away. We are sick of you. Go home. Have a nice rest of your life. Leave us alone. Stop boring everyone.

    It is nothing more than their sense of noblesse oblige. These “important” people believe that they must devote their lives to offering guidance to the little people: the ones who cannot make any decisions on their own and who must be guided by their betters.

    An ivy league diploma and prep school provides them with superior decision-making capabilities for those things that must never, ever be left in the hands of those who lead ordinary, workaday lives in actual America.

looks like there are more folks on stage AS PROPS behind her than listening [well attending] in seats in front of her

When any public figure acts superior to their followers and treat the public with bare- tolerance, citizens get the disrespect being shown & will not follow someone who treats ( Non-Contributor ) as their serfs. Lie upon lie & mysterious deaths of co-workers & friends make people nervous.
