It's the professor vs. the polls – who's right?
A political scientist who successfully predicted Donald Trump's victory in 2016 is predicting that his re-election – despite bleak poll numbers – is practically guaranteed.
Democratic voters in South Carolina will get their turn next week to pick their preferred candidate for president but there is one name many may run from: Pete Buttigieg.
Joe Biden is hoping black voters in The Palmetto State will help revive his campaign after terrible losses in Iowa and New Hampshire. He may get some unexpected help from those same voters, too, who could refuse to vote for the openly homosexual Buttigieg.
“It ain’t happening, Captain,” remarks attorney Abraham Hamilton, who is also a black pastor and American Family Radio talk show host. “Don't let the Iowa and New Hampshire smooth taste fool you. I'm just going to tell you: Black people ain't voting for Pete Buttigieg because he's a homosexual.”
According to two polls at Real Clear Politics, Biden is polling in first place among South Carolina voters followed by Tom Steyer in second place. Buttigieg is polling fifth in single digits.
It is true that a large majority of black voters support the Democratic Party, Hamilton says, but those same voters also hold socially conservative beliefs which includes view about homosexuality and marriage.
“And you will see in South Carolina,” he predicts, “you will see it very clearly, that they are not very high on Pete Buttigieg."
