Dem 2016 poll: Hillary Clinton still on top
Politico ^ | 5/15/13 | KEVIN CIRILLI

Posted on 05/15/2013 3:12:39 PM PDT by presidio9

The renewed interest in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack at the U.S. post in Benghazi, Libya, has not shaken Hillary Clinton’s position among potential 2016 contenders, according to a new poll.

The former secretary of state — under fire by conservatives who say she played politics with the attack in which Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed — still leads the potential 2016 Democratic field with 63 percent of the vote in her party, according to a Public Policy Polling poll released Wednesday.

Vice President Joe Biden comes in at second with 13 percent. No other candidate polled higher than 4 percent. The poll was conducted between May 6 and May 9, 2013 — just as the hearings on the Hill were heating up.

“Benghazi isn’t having much impact on Hillary Clinton’s viability in a potential 2016 campaign,” said PPP President Dean Debnam in a statement. “She continues to lead the Democratic field and the top Republican candidate possibilities.”

Last month, PPP had Clinton leading with 64 percent.

Good!

The only ones who will support her are the freepers who oppose EVERY GOP nominee since this sites creation.

The story here is more that the true believers are circling their wagons around their queen bee than the results of the poll itself.

Ronald Reagan would have been crucified here.

And from what I am reading (no specific links now) I was right — had so many “Conservatives” not decided they would stay home and eat worms Romney would have won. Romney was far from the best candidate but he was the FAR BETTER candidate compared to the obozo to whom we handed the election.

Obama is going to finish out his term very unpopular. Hillary is the only Dem with any chance to succeed him. Biden? Please.

So, the libs are gonna pull out all the stops to save her skin. I predict they are even willing to throw Obama under the bus if that's what it takes to save her viability. We may already be seeing some of that. The harder the press pushes the IRS the farther back they push the Benghazi story.

Allow me to correct you: It is the people here who oppose the viable candidates who actually might win a nomination and a national election in favor of the not-a-snowball’s-chance-in-hell types who pass every litmus test and then throw a temper tantrum when their guy loses. If conservatives had gotten behind Newt Gingrich early I still believe he would have exposed Barak Obama for who he is and won the election. Would he have been the perfect conservative? Of course not. But he would have taken the fight to Obama because he is not one bit concerned with wether people like him as a person or not.

2000 was a strange election year because voters were still getting over a distasteful Democrat incombant. From now on (unless the current scandal continues to metasticize), every time we nominate a “nice guy” candidate we will lose.

Neither do they give a rat’s a** about anything else. As long as that person has a D next to their name, that’s who they’ll vote for - government freebies, ya know.

I wish there was a way to revoke people’s voting rights who are low-information voters. Ok, I guess that is being controlling, but its sickening what these sheeple have voted for and don’t have a clue how the Ds are destroying this county. Hillary Clinton for President? Good God, save us - she’s every bit as bad as zero is. She sure can lie just as well as he does.

Not to distract from your point, but in 6.A, you do a great disservice to Augusto Pinochet to put him in such company. Perhaps you meant Salvador Allende?

“Typical. She could commit murder and still poll high. Why are people so numb to incompetence?”..

If she could be tied tightly to the Bengahzi issue, perhaps we would not have to worry about her come election time. I believe she was heavily involved in the “Stand Down” order.

This is why Democrats are circling the wagons around Hillary. They would be stuck with Biden. Then there’s no one else.

Eight years ago Hillary Clinton was polling even better than she was now. Her chance was then. A younger, more charismatic, more electable candidate emerged. History will undoubtly repeat itself, but we can always hope that this time her followers will be so bent out of shape that they create a lot of bad will in the general election.

Last time the Clintons went into hiding for three months while they contemplated the prospect of one last chance in 2016. This time there will be backup plan.

Hillary takes out SlowJoe and Coumo by end of March 2016.
Picks Deval Patrick as VP.

Does she win in Nov? Too many unknowns right now.

The statement was made by Hillary, so you could put any name you want on that list. Add Allende in if you want, or Donald Duck.

Sure, I know all the statements were made by Hillary. And I know your point was that her statements are indistinguishable from those of some of the most vile leftists of all time. That's why the inclusion of Pinochet landed with a clank. It's as if you had Reagan or Thatcher as one of the entries. I don't mean to pick on you. As I said, your point is solid. It's just that there are a lot of people, even here on FR, who have less than a solid grounding in the history of the Left. Leftist revisionists have worked long and hard to make Pinochet out to be Hitler and have largely succeeded. It was Allende who was the Communist intent on ruining Chile. Pinochet saved that country and has been savaged by the leftist press for his success.
