Former president George H.W Bush is voting for Hillary Clinton according to a report from POLITICO. Many Democrats are counting as a victory, but I believe it actually helps Donald Trump.
Kathleen Hartington Kennedy Townsend a member of the Kennedy family posted a picture on her Facebook page shaking hands next to the former president and this caption: “The President told me he’s voting for Hillary!!
Trump can point to this as an example of the elitists and old guard coming together try and stop him. I also believe that this could hurt Hillary Clinton. Voters on the hard left especially young people are becoming more and more skeptical of Hillary Clinton despite Bernie Sanders stumping for her and election day getting close. This may re-affirm their fears of Clinton being a Warhawk. The dynasty feeling may turn off some anti-establishment voters looking for a change.
