'She’s not going to make it' - friends talking about Gillibrand

While she may still have a ton of confidence in herself to win the Democratic nomination, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand's own friends and donors certainly don't feel the same way.

Gillibrand's campaign has quietly struggled with low poll numbers, as well as reaching the donor threshold that would qualify her for the next round of Democratic debates. Other Democrats have already dropped out for those very same reasons, and it appears that Gillibrand may be the next domino to fall.

Former staffers, donors, and even some of Kirsten Gillibrand's own friends think it's time for her to throw in the towel. 

"She’s not going to make it," a longtime friend and supporter told the Post. "What is Kirsten’s reason to stay in? She should find some gracious way that enhances her, as she gracefully exits and throws her conditional support to whoever does get [the nomination].”

One of Gillibrand's former senior Senate staffers offered their own opinion:

"I don’t know that anyone even wants to see her on the debate stage. Everyone I have talked to finds her performative and obnoxious. She comes across as an opportunist to the public. I think that’s the biggest problem."

The NRA was quick to jump on Gillibrand for her hypocrisy and opportunistic approach, echoing a similar sentiment to what the former staffer accused her of.

Most who are still close with Kirsten Gillibrand agree that she should drop out and shift her focus and energy on her current job as a Senator, rather than running for President.

"It would be best if she decided that this was not her time," one longtime Gillibrand fundraiser told the New York Post. "Most people that I talk to are very happy with her as their senator and don’t want her to give up her Senate seat and don’t see any realistic traction for her."
