Hillary Clinton Trounces Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, and Paul Ryan in New Poll (For POTUS 2016)
Politics USA ^ | 03/07/2013 | Jason Easley

Posted on 03/07/2013 9:42:23 AM PST by SeekAndFind

A new Quinnipiac University poll found that Hillary Clinton would trounce any of the top three Republican 2016 contenders, but Vice President Joe Biden would lose to Christie, struggle against Ryan, and defeat Rubio.

If the election were held today, former Sec. of State Clinton would have an easy time against either Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, or Paul Ryan. Clinton would defeat Sen. Marco Rubio 50%-34%. She would also win by double digits over Rep. Paul Ryan 50%-38. The Republican that would give her the most trouble is the one that the conservative base likes the least. Clinton would defeat Gov. Chris Christie 45%-37%.

Vice President Biden doesn’t fare nearly as well against the top three Republicans. Biden tops Rubio 45%-38%. The vice president would be in a close race with Ryan 45%-42%, and he would lose to Christie 43%-40%. The difference between Clinton and Biden is most clearly seen with Independent voters. Clinton ties Christie with Independents (36%-36%). Biden loses to Christie 44%-32%. Clinton leads Ryan by six points with Independents, 44%-38%. Ryan leads Biden with Independents, 45%-36%. Clinton leads Rubio, 44%-32% with Independents. Rubio leads Biden, 39%-36%.

Pure name recognition at this stage. Any poll this far out has little value. The names that always surface at the top are those who have run before, or are nationally known (like Rudy in 2008).

Politically, she is done. Health reasons if nothing else.

And at her age, four years is an eternity in which the body quickly fails you. And hers has demonstrated it is not one of those that’s gonna go on 80 or 90 years.

True this is just name recognition at this point; however, I would say this is bad news for Hillary. She should be much higher at this point especially against an unknown as Rubio.

Any DemocRAT in a Santa suit trashes ANY REPUBLICAN these days. We’ve become a Free Stuff nation. More and more people now living in this country are reaching out to the gubmint for free stuff. It sure beats working for a living.

Did Paul Ryan manage to carve a place for himself on the national stage as presidential material, I didn’t see that.

The biggest problem with reelecting a (vicious) lame duck President is that the jockeying for President begins immediately.

Nope, the low-information voters (aka the majority) think she’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. There will probably never be another Republican, much less conservative in the White House in my lifetime.

She has to go thru a primary...unlike Obama in 2012.....she won’t look nearly as good by then. Dems are basically stuck with a white woman and a white man if the field stays as is. Not that big a deal to the blacks and Latinos as it was with the present occupant!!

The Left starts early, decides the race in the media, then fixes the votes via fraud.

The only fix to this is a counter-revolution.

Can an unelected co-president serve 4 more years after he was already elected to two terms? Can Hillary still serve 4 or 8 elected years as President after already serving 8 years in an officially declared “unelected-co-presidency” with Bill Clinton?

2016 - Hillary vs. Michelle, the Grammy winning wives of Presidents who will circumvent the Constitution by running for third terms under their wives names.

That’s it, plain and simple. No Democrat gives a Rat’s ass about the Constitution or the name on the ballot. They would be casting votes for Bill and Barack.

Let’s say you had an acquaintance who told you that snipers had been shooting at her as she was getting off an airplane, and you knew she was full of crap. Wouldn’t you think there was something wrong with this person? Would you “elect” to make this person your friend?

If name recognition is the problem, I’d say he’d fare even worse that Marco Rubio.

Vote for a failed State Department official??? HAH!

Vote for a ‘ressurected Garfield’? HAH!

Marco Rubio? Doesn’t fit the ‘native’ narrative.

Paul Ryan? No problem! He is NOT a ‘RINO’!

Looking at a trend to predict the future is useful, but not without it’s own dangers.

On the surface it appears that the Democrats have everything going for them and it does not look like another Republican or Conservative will ever be elected President (with in my life span, as one poster put it).

Fortunately things do not always turn out the way people think they would. There are always unforeseen events that change things.

By their very nature these events can not be predicted.

Hillary may in fact secure the nomination and have a successful campaign to become President, but it is not a sure thing.

To give in to despair that it is does our cause no good.

I have no doubt that this is true. The American people have been so mentally conditioned that they had to have a black as President. By electing a black they implicitly stated “we are warm, fuzzy, democrats noting absolutely no differences.” The next goal of a trivial stupid American electorate shall be a Female(with strong masculine tendencies)President.

“By electing a black they implicitly stated “we are warm, fuzzy, democrats noting absolutely no differences.”

The liberal leftwing nuts have to constantly prove they aren’t racists, kind of like all the movie stars adopting black babies. On a funnier note, TMZ has made a film called “Black Baby” that they are afraid to show.
