Hillary Clinton to visit Durham high school

Posted March 8
Updated March 10

— Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton plans to make a campaign stop at a Durham high school on Thursday.

Clinton will speak at Hillside High School at 3:50 p.m., according to her campaign.

A planned second stop at Broughton High School in Raleigh was canceled Wednesday. Clinton will rally in Chicago Thursday evening instead.

Both North Carolina and Illinois hold primaries next Tuesday, March 15.

A WRAL News poll released this week shows Clinton with a commanding 57 percent to 34 percent lead among likely North Carolina Democratic voters over U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Clinton has sizable leads among both men and women and wins by a landslide among black voters, 74 percent to 20 percent.

As he has shown throughout his campaign, Sanders' strength lies with young voters. He holds a 64-34 percent advantage among voters ages 18 to 34 in the WRAL News poll. Once voters hit age 35, however, the polling clearly favors Clinton, with anywhere from 18- to 51-point margins in her favor.

Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, on Monday kicked off a week of campaigning in North Carolina by presidential contenders in advance of the March 15 primary with a stop in Raleigh.

Republican front-runner Donald Trump appeared in Concord on Monday and had a Fayetteville rally on Wednesday night.

Trump's closest rival, Ted Cruz, made Tuesday stops in Raleigh and Kannapolis.

Clinton's Democratic rival, Sanders, will make his own Raleigh stop on Friday.

    surely the current Republican standard-bearers have a better and more developed moral-fiber? They hate immigrants and they're sons of immigrants. They hate government yet want to run the government and tell women they can't have access to abortion. They hate the poor, and allow violence at their rallies. The Republican candidates are the most negative, anti-American people I've ever seen.

    I don't understand anyone voting for Hillary holding their nose or not. She lied about Benghazi. She was partly responsible for Americans being killed there and she lied about it with race baiting. She and the POTUS blamed it on a video when she knew that wasn't true and apparently she even emailed her family about it. Someone went to jail because of that video because of the fervor whipped up by her and the POTUS. I won't even get into the email and server investigation, but it sounds like she isn't worried as if the fix is in. Her time as Secretary of State was more like being a booking agent for her husband's speaking engagements and their path to their millions. She would go down as the worst of all-time if not for Kerry and his Iran deal debacle.
    We are never presented with very good choices for candidates. She would be a disaster. I feel as though those that would vote for her don't know a thing about Economics. We can't continue to spend into oblivion as she believes.

    I am, and so are a lot of other people, particularly minorities and women. We may not be as loud and obnoxious as the supporters of some other candidates, but we're here, and we're absolutely ready for Hillary. If you need proof, just look at the votes. Hillary has won more votes so far than any other candidate in either party.

    I understand some people holding their nose and voting for her... but WHO is actually 'strongly supportive'?... I mean WHO out there is loudly proclaiming "That's MY candidate, right there!"?

    I have a feeling Bernie will have a larger turnout, that is if the public is even allowed to attend. However, I am sure Trump will have the largest turnout out of all the candidates.
