*Hillary Group* Clinton's Favorability Strong Among Black Americans

Gallup poll release:

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Hillary Clinton enjoys an 80% favorable rating among U.S. blacks, while two Democratic challengers who have struggled in public exchanges with black activists, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, suffer from low name recognition and favorability among blacks.

Clinton's favorability with blacks towers over other Democrats'

Most Republican candidates have negative image among blacks

4. Since "Hispanic is the new black" in Republicanland...

Hillary leads in recent Hispanic polling.

Clinton Leads Hispanic Vote in Univision Poll

That’s the takeaway from a survey of Hispanic voters conducted for Noticias Univisión. When asked who they would vote for if the presidential election were to take place today, 64% of respondents said they would pick Clinton. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush was Clinton’s closest Republican rival but significantly trailed the Democratic candidate at 27%.

Poll: Clinton tops Bush, Rubio among Hispanic voters for 2016

According to the survey, Clinton remains the most popular candidate among the Hispanic electorate, mirroring other recent national surveys. The former first lady is seen positively by 73 percent of likely Hispanic voters, while 17 percent have a negative view.
That's enough for a substantial lead over Biden, who holds a 58-21 percent favorability rating.

Rubio, meanwhile, carries a narrow 31-29 positive favorability rating. Some four in 10 probable Hispanic voters, though, say they don't know the Florida lawmaker, who has helped push for comprehensive immigration reform in the Senate.

2. K & R

I'm pretty sure that the Bishop that preached at my church on Sunday knows about "separation of church and government" but heck he was funny. Commented on the GOP's recent debates as a total loser while thumbs up for HRC!

3. K & R, thanks for posting.

It appears Hillary has been in front for some time with black Americans though many try to tell them she has not been an advocate for years on issues affecting black Americans. She will continue to push for their issues and is willing to do so.

7. And you can't assign that to name recognition.

Those favorability numbers are from people who were familiar with the candidate (s).

8. It weighs heavily with Hispanics

that Hillary and Bill spent some of their time as in-the-field activists in South Texas registering voters. It was at the same time La Raza became a prominent force in the area. They're remembered here with great affection, and there's a deep on-going loyalty..

10. Yes, and Hillary continues to push for increased access to the ballot.

Her proposals to protect voting rights are the strongest and would be the most effective of any of the candidates.

11. When she was in my city in 08,

an elderly woman gave Hilary a rosary she had had especially blessed by the local bishops on both sides of the Rio Grande. She explained that, then put it in Hillary's hand. "Para ti, señora Presidenta,"

And a lot of people found out that you can cheer and cry at the same time.

9. African American Democrats are the Heart and Soul of our party...

It's not just that we need their numbers to win. We need them to bring their unique perspective and energy to our candidate. When their agenda is all of our agenda, the United States will be a better country.

13. Well said, Walk away.. if anyone doubts that.. they need to

take a look at the numbers and pics of our AA Community standing in long lines for hours to elect President Obama in 2008 and re-elect him in 2012!

I am grateful for their Activism forever!

14. Hillary Clinton's popularity immeasurable



Mushtaq Dean

Not among black Americans only but also among women of all colors because she cares for their wellfare and education.

Among middle class because she has concern for their wages that hardly keep them armed to fight the cost of commodities.

Aamong common Americans who are worried for their safety due to free use of guns and she is out to impose a control on this slavish use.

Among almost entire nation that has apprehension toward external intrusion possibly by anti-American elements.

Among all those who are impressed with her personality, her education, worldwide reputation, contribution as the senator, valorous services as the secretary of state.
