More Polling Trouble for Hillary

hillary clintonSome more troubling news for Hillary has emerged via the latest AP-GfK poll. The AP reports:

Just 39 percent of all Americans have a favorable view of Clinton, compared to nearly half who say they have a negative opinion of her. That’s an eight-point increase in her unfavorable rating from an AP-GfK poll conducted at the end of April.

The drop in Clinton’s numbers extends into the Democratic Party. Seven in 10 Democrats gave Clinton positive marks, an 11-point drop from the April survey. Nearly a quarter of Democrats now say they see Clinton in an unfavorable light.

And there’s more:

The survey suggests that voters aren’t sold on her reinvention: Only 4 in 10 voters say they view Clinton as “compassionate.” Just 3 in 10 said the word “honest” described her either very or somewhat well.

Despite these findings, the latest USA TODAY/Suffolk University poll finds Clinton in the lead against all GOP declared candidates:

Bush, the strongest candidate against Clinton, lags by four points nationwide, 46%-42%. Trump trails by 17 points, 51%-34%.

That’s a wider margin than Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (down 6 points), former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee (8 points), Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (9 points), Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (10 points) and retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson (13 points).

So, what do you think? Can any of the GOP candidates rise up and defeat Hillary?

Which candidate has the best shot?

How much of your decision rests on the GOP debates?

Will a lot of Democrat voters stay home rather than vote for Hillary?

Do voters not describe Hillary as “honest” simply because they view all politicians as dishonest? Or is it particular to her?

What character traits in a GOP candidate, related to policy and delivery, are best suited to defeat Hillary?

1. So, what do you think? Can any of the GOP candidates rise up and defeat Hillary?
That would be like trying to catching lighting in a bottle not very likely.

2. Which candidate has the best shot?
If y’all agree to let him run for a third term I think Barrack Obama would be the ONLY candidate to come close to routing Hillary.

3. How much of your decision rests on the GOP debates?
I have popcorn, I’m waiting … remember laughter is the best medicine.

4. Will a lot of Democrat voters stay home rather than vote for Hillary?
Shucks no they’ll turn out in droves on Election Day.
It’s not Hillary that concern Democrats, it’s the dysfunctional congress created by the gerrymandering or vote rigging of congressional districts allowed by individual states (my congressional district looks like a ink blot from a Rorschach test). Gerrymandering of 2010 is why republicans were able to have their majority in the house
Americans don’t want those Right Wing Teaparty fools in congress anymore!

5. Do voters not describe Hillary as “honest” simply because they view all politicians as dishonest? Or is it particular to her?
There are always three sides to every story.

6. What character traits in a GOP candidate, related to policy and delivery, are best suited to defeat Hillary?
Cognitive dissonance? whuzzat mean?

Just enjoy the dream Bila, that’s as close as the GOP will get to the White House in 2016.

Hey BuckO, here’s the Republican ticket that would give you and the rest of your Progressively Communist friends nightmares … Dr. Ben Carson as President (he alone can draw at least 50% of the Black vote away from Hillary) and Don Trump as Vice President! … See, you’re getting a migraine already and you’re starting to see rainbow colored spots before your eyes. Oh, wait, you’re looking into a mirror as you adjust your rainbow spotted bow tie! … You better start thinking of more ways to stuff ballot boxes! … and that won’t even help this time!

Hey RikO,
1. I don’t know if you know this, but black communities tend to be democratic in every election, throwing a black candidate out doesn’t just immediately gain 50% of black voters.
2. That joke about rainbows was really clever.

The mainstream media isn’t going to allow Hillary to lose. They will do whatever it takes to get her in the oval office. Period!

We have become a nation of moochers. Most people want the government to take care of them. Almost everyone under the age of 30 has been brainwashed.

Frankly, I don’t know why we don’t also oppose the “carried interest tax loophole” since the top 25 hedge fund managers in 2014 “mooched” a $2.2 billion break on their tax bill because of this loophole.
