Honestly if Clinton spoke in public as she did in private she would be 50 points ahead.Yet another leak has come out showing her taking a swipe at Bernie supporters.
“I met with a group of young black millennials today and you know one of the young women said, “You know, none of us feel that we have the job that we should have gotten out of college. And we don’t believe the job market is going to give us much of a chance.” So that is a mindset that is really affecting their politics. And so if you’re feeling like you’re consigned to, you know, being a barista, or you know, some other job that doesn’t pay a lot, and doesn’t have some other ladder of opportunity attached to it, then the idea that maybe, just maybe, you could be part of a political revolution is pretty appealing…We should all be really understanding of that and should try to do the best we can not to be, you know, a wet blanket on idealism. We want people to be idealistic. We want them to set big goals… But those of us who understand this, who’ve worked in it know that it’s a false promise. But I don’t think you tell idealistic people, particularly young people that they’ve bought into a false promise.”
The problem the world faces is that it is totally ill equipped to face the coming collapse. She is very open about how little future lies for the youth. Now I’m not so dim as to think politicians have the people’s vested interests at heart but here Clinton tells us “we’ll string them along”
However even that group of black Millennials is seeing that the jobs market isn’t what they thought. Even with a super degree it might all be in vain. Just like those people post GFC who thought a CFA would add value. 80% of job listings for those with that qualification are sub $100k.
Now whatever personal peccadilloes one may have for Trump as sexist, racist, bigoted and/or loud mouthed etc, the one thing he has wiped the floor with Clinton on is pointing out the harsh realities of the world we are in. The lack of jobs, huge student debt, a collusive Fed, asset bubbles and growing numbers in poverty.
The establishment is so naive to think they can push stats from the White House and the Bureau of Labor Statistics and have people believe there are good jobs paying ever higher wages. Nothing could be further from the truth. No matter how “stupid” these people supposedly are, no matter how ill equipped to understand the methodology of government statistics they are increasingly aware their lives aren’t anything like what they’re told.
Therein lies Clinton’s problems. She’s not coming clean. If she said Obama has done a disastrous job, that free education and affordable healthcare for everyone is just not doable, that times will get very tough soon if we all don’t understand the predicament we’re in she would be 50 points ahead in the polls. If she wants to be the first woman president perhaps she should follow the legacy of the first Catholic president from her own party!

As it stands I still believe this election is not the coronation she thinks. The more leaks the more we see the real person that validates her total lack of “sincerity”
