Contrary to popular belief, the Democratic Party is actually the political party of millionaires and billionaires.
And in a new survey of millionaires across the country, Hillary Clinton (D) is their pick to be the president in 2016. This is probably largely due to the fact that Clinton is a plutocrat herself.
According to the CNBC survey, 53 percent of the 750 American millionaires polled said they would vote for Clinton, with 47 percent saying they would vote for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R). Clinton was supported by 91 percent of millionaires who said they were Democrats and got a whopping 57 percent of Independent millionaires, as well as 13 percent of millionaires who identify as Republicans.
Here is the Clinton v. Bush millionaire breakdown:
Even in a broader election poll, Clinton still garnered 36 percent of the Millionaire vote, while Bush got 20 percent and the so-called ‘fighter of the working class’ Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) received 8 percent.
This amount of support from millionaires is testament to how Clinton has aligned herself with the rich and fabulous. She has repeatedly made claims that she and her former President-husband Bill Clinton are not all-that-well-off. And she has gone as far to say that they were “dead broke” after they left the White House, despite receiving a lifetime government salary.
Here is how Clinton has amassed the millionaire vote by being the candidate most relate-able to them:
