The big name stars supporting Hillary Clinton


Some of the world’s biggest stars have come out in support of Democrat Hillary Clinton.
At a time when the margins between Mrs Clinton and her rival Donald Trump are narrowing, celebrities have come out to fight her corner.
The fresh push to get Mrs Clinton, 69, into the White House comes as America prepares to vote within just a few days.
As she stepped up her campaign before the election on November 8, she was first supported by billionaire businessman Mark Cuban as she tried to win over undecided voters in Pittsburgh.
She then went on to a Jay Z concert in Cleveland. She has also had the support of Vice President Joseph R Biden Jr in Wisconsin and Senator Bernie Sanders in Iowa.
She is due to head to Philadephia for a concert with Katy Perry and Stevie Wonder. Then, the plan is that she comes together for a rally with both Mr Obama and the current First Lady Michelle.
Mrs Clinton’s team are hoping that by sending her out to rub shoulders with famous popstars, their fan base will decide to follow the lead of their idols and support her at the ballots.
Meanwhile, other high level political leaders were campaigning on her behalf in other parts of the country. Her husband Bill was doing what he could to get his wife to the White House during a visit to Colorado while outgoing President Barack Obama was talking to potential voters in North Carolina.
In contrast, Mr Trump seems to be pretty much fighting his own battle.
After his wife Melania gave a rare public speech in support of the 70-year-old entrepreneur and property tycoon, he was then left to blaze his own trail.
With many of the Republican Party’s big hitters refusing to publically back him, Mr Trump has been left to turn to a team of back up players for support.
Despite this, polls are showing that Mr Trump is drawing closer to Mrs Clinton following the furore over her emails and he must surely feel that the top job in America is within his grasp.
Mr Trump is now leaning on states he feels he can grab in a bid to see his dream realised. He believes that even though Michigan, New Mexico and Nevada have been leaning toward Mrs Clinton, he can win their support.
