By Steve Schmidt | Politico | April 25, 2020 10:23am ESTHillary Clinton’s long campaign to be the first female president has a new twist.
The former secretary of state is officially endorsed by some of the most powerful Democrats in the nation.
Here are five reasons why:The Democratic front-runner has been on a roll of late.
Clinton was a front-row performer in this year’s Democratic presidential primary, taking on Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for the Democratic nomination and winning a commanding lead over former Maryland Gov.
She even made a few splashy endorsements on the heels of Sanders’ disappointing showing in the general election.
And she’s not done yet.
In the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Clinton formally endorsed Bernie Sanders for president, as well as former Maryland governor Martin O. “Governor O’Brien,” the former secretary said, and then introduced him to the crowd.
“I’ve known him for many years, and I know he’s going to do great things for this country.
So thank you, Mr. O’Brian, and welcome to the Democratic Party.”
O’Brien was one of many Democrats who jumped on board with Clinton in the last week, joining her in the Democratic presidential race as a superdelegate, a Democratic official who can vote for whomever the candidate chooses.
Olyans decision was not immediately clear but he’s now one of the top five superdelegates in the race.
Clinton’s Superdelegate decision has helped her secure the Democratic nod in a number of states, including New York, California, Illinois, Florida, and Virginia.
Oilyans endorsement makes him the top three Democratic superdelegates in 2020, according to the Washington Post.
Clinton has also built a loyal following of activists and progressive activists who support her agenda.
These are the people who have been urging her to stay in the presidential race and have been helping her campaign to keep her momentum.
The latest poll shows that a record number of Sanders supporters have been opting for a third-party option, and they’re backing Clinton.
In addition to the endorsement, Clinton has been able to tap into a huge wave of support among progressives who have always been wary of the party establishment.
This is the kind of movement she needs to take to win the presidency.
Her strategy to win back the party’s progressive base is working.
According to a recent CBS News poll, 61 percent of Democrats say they support Clinton, compared to 37 percent who support Sanders.
And she’s still leading the race among young people, who are the heart of the Democratic base.
According to the CBS poll, Clinton is winning young people by more than 2 to 1, and she is capturing the votes of the young voters who are more likely to be voting for Sanders in 2020.
Clinton has also been able build on her strong showing among women and minorities, especially among African-Americans and Hispanics.
She’s been able turn the tables on Donald Trump and turn the race in her favor.
Clinton’s message is resonating with these groups and, as she continues to expand her coalition, she could even win the Democratic primary.
Clinton is leading the pack among younger voters, who have consistently been a part of Sanders’s support base, according the CBS Poll.
She leads Sanders by more two to one among voters ages 18-29, and is leading Sanders by two to four points among voters between the ages of 30-49.
The survey shows that Sanders is still winning the younger voters by a margin of 1 to 1 among this group.
Clinton won the most delegates in this group in 2016, garnering more than 575,000 total delegates, according a CBS News analysis of data from the National Popular Vote Project.
But she has struggled to win over these voters, which could change this year.
According a recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, 68 percent of millennials said they will vote for someone other than Sanders in the 2020 primary, and 71 percent said they would vote for Clinton if they had to choose.
This poll is the largest among millennials since NBC/WSJ began tracking this question in 2013.
Clinton can be expected to do well among voters who identify as independent, and this group is crucial to her prospects.
According a survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute, 74 percent of independent voters would back Clinton over Sanders in a 2020 primary.
This group is also one of Clinton’s most loyal voters, with 81 percent of these voters saying they will back her.
Clinton is currently leading Sanders among independent voters by more then a three-to-one margin, according this poll.
Clinton may not have the name recognition of her rival, but she has shown signs of growing her appeal among young voters.
According the CBS News Poll, 56 percent of Millennials say they will support Clinton in 2020 compared to only 32 percent who will back Sanders.
This trend is also seen among younger women, who support Clinton by double-digits among this demographic.
Clinton also has
