The latest Rasmussen poll has bad news for Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, after a recent gaffe in which she referred to half of Donald Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables.” The poll shows that her slip has cost her dearly in the much sought-after deplorable demographic.
Her support among deplorables has slipped an additional percentage point down to almost 3% since the incident, and her campaign is scrambling to find a path back into their good graces.
“We are truly panicking here at campaign headquarters,” said assistant campaign aide Frank DeCamilla. “Expect something pretty drastic in the next few days to try and repair the damage. These voters were up for totally up for grabs before, but now… Maybe we’ll have her re-tweet a white supremacist or slam some gay actor. Perhaps she’ll suggest a religious ban or an ‘even taller’ wall. Maybe a call to reinstate slavery. Whatever it is, it’s going to have to be big. We’re getting killed in the 41-69 deplorable block!”
