• NBC’s Andrea Mitchell: White Women ‘Abandoning’ Hillary Clinton ‘In Droves’

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is desperately trying to win back women voters, a group that is key to her campaign, because they are now abandoning her “in droves,” NBC’s Andrea Mitchell reported on Tuesday’s Today show.

    “Hillary Clinton is reaching out to that group that she had always counted on, white women voters, who are now abandoning her in droves during the last two months,” Mitchell reported.

    The FBI’s probe into the security of e-mail sent over a private server Clinton used when she was secretary of state, as well as an intense media focus on her response to the controversy has led to a rapid erosion of support among Democratic women — the voters long presumed to be the bedrock in her bid to become the nation’s first female president.

    Clinton has spent the past few weeks doing everything possible to court women voters and has even going so far as to seek out women-owned businesses to grab lunch.

    She is also is reaching out to women by doing “softer interviews,” including talking to Mario Lopez about meeting Kim Kardashian, Mitchell said.

    “This after seeing her support among white women in one new poll go from 71% in July to just 42% now, a 29% drop in only eight weeks as Clinton has been hammered with questions about her private emails,” Mitchell noted, citing a new Washington Post-ABC News poll .

    Clinton’s support has faltered among other key groups, including independents, African Americans, and people ages 18-34 – all groups Democrats are counting on for 2016.
