Requesting Loved Ones Not Vote For Hillary in Obituaries Is Becoming A Thing

Hillary Clinton is so unpopular among some older voters that their last dying wish, literally, is that their loved ones do not vote for the former secretary of state.

Since Hillary launched her campaign, at least three people have requested in their obituaries that in lieu of flowers, their loved ones give their vote to anyone but Hillary on Election Day.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

An Arkansas man has requested in his obituary that loved ones do not vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, making him at least the third individual to do so since Clinton launched her campaign in April.

The obituary for Richard Buckman of Beebe, Ark., reads, “In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary,” mirroring text that was included in a recent obituary for a deceased New Jersey woman.

Buckman died on Aug. 22 at the age of 75, three days after news broke that the obituary for 63-year-old Elaine Fyrdrych of Gloucester Township, N.J., advised funeral goers, “Elaine requests, ‘In lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Hillary Clinton.’”

Indeed, such requests have become something of a trend. The obituary for a 81-year-old North Carolina man who died the day after Clinton launched her presidential campaign also asked loved ones to refrain from voting for the Democratic presidential candidate.

“The family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016,” the obituary for Larry Darrell Upright read.

These individuals aren’t alone in their feelings about voting for Clinton. According to a recent poll, 60 percent of registered voters in the 50 and above age group have an unfavorable opinion of her, while 39 percent have a favorable opinion.
