Democratic Woman Wanting To Be First Female President Rapidly Losing Liberal Female Support

When Hillary Clinton was gearing up for her 2016 race to the White House, you can bet she was expecting her liberal sisters and women everywhere to back her up. That expectation, much like other expectations of the Clinton campaign, hasn't been fulfilled. 

According to a new Washington Post poll, Hillary Clinton is nose diving with liberal women. These are the same women who scream about "women's health" and who have upheld Clinton for years as an idol. My how things have changed. 

The numbers in a new Washington Post-ABC News poll are an alarm siren: Where 71 percent of Democratic-leaning female voters said in July that they expected to vote for Clinton, only 42 percent do now, a drop of 29 percentage points in eight weeks.

The steep decline among women, which is sharpest among whites, is the main force driving the poll’s overall numbers, which show support for Hillary Clinton falling from 63 percent in July to 42 percent now among Democratic-leaning voters. Her numbers among women have declined to the point where they are about even with her share among men.

That's going to leave a mark. 

The irony here is too good not to mention. Not only is Hillary failing to keep the support of her once overly loyal fan base, but she's losing women to an old, white man who isn't a Republican.
