Scruff Users Growl Support for Hillary

Hillary Clinton

Like other polls, an informal survey on Scruff has the Democratic frontrunner winning in New York.

Hillary Clinton appears to have decisively won over one New York demographic: Scruff users.

A very unscientific poll of 900 users of the hook-up app, geo-located in New York, found Clinton leading her Democratic challenger, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, by 57 percent to 32 percent. Among registered Democrats, Clinton did even better, scoring 61 percent of respondents. Sanders -- who, on Tuesday, warned naysayers to not rely on polls about his chances in the New York primary -- was no slouch; he scored very well with young registered Democrats, aged 18-24, with 73 percent on his side.

While the poll is more amusement than prediction, the Clinton campaign publicly made LGBT voters an integral part of her strategy there. The effort included reach out to the state's nearly 600,000 adult LGBT voters, according to BuzzFeed. Clinton's campaign spent money producing literature promoting her LGBT record, sending volunteers to door-to-door in predominately gay neighborhoods in New York, and placing advertising on queer news sites (including this one).

Sanders, a huge draw among millennial voters -- including LGBT ones -- did not respond to questions from BuzzFeed on his efforts to court the LGBT demographic in New York. But NBC News reports today that Sanders outspent Clinton 2-to-1 in New York advertising overall.
