Florida poll: Hillary Clinton beats Jeb Bush (50-43), Marco Rubio (53-41!)
Politico.com ^ | 6/19/13 6:44 EDT | Tal Kopan

Posted on 06/19/2013 3:35:32 PM PDT by drewh

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would win Florida against both Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential election, a new poll finds.

If the election were held today, Clinton would top Bush 50 percent to 43 percent, and she would best Rubio 53 percent to 41 percent, according to Wednesday’s survey from Quinnipiac.

Vice President Joe Biden would trail both of Florida’s Republican favorites. If he were the Democratic candidate, Bush would win 47 percent to 43 percent, and Rubio would narrowly defeat Biden 45 percent to 43 percent.

The poll also found that though Rubio’s approval and favorability numbers were consistent with past polls, and that voters surveyed were unhappy with his actions on gun control and immigration. Of those polled, 49 percent said Rubio’s vote against expanded background checks made them view him less favorably, and 41 percent said they disapproved of the way he was handling the immigration issue, compared to 33 percent that approved.

Quinnipiac surveyed 1,176 registered voters from June 11-16 for the poll, which has a margin of error of plus-minus 2.9 percentage points.

Public school educated low-information voters will carry the day from here on out. Our only chance will come after a near-total collapse.

Hilary Clinton will also get 70% of the hispanic vote. They love a celebrity candidate.

Well, if 2016 turns into a Hillary-Jeb or Hillary-Rubio race, there’s a 100% chance I’m just going to stay home on election day. No way in hell will Jeb or Rubio ever get my vote.

I’ll tell you who could get 70% of the hispanic vote, is Sarah Palin.

Don’t think male hispanics will vote for an attractive woman?

Guess again.

Link her up with someone like Cruz, and she’d be unbeatable.

[Art.] Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would win Florida against both Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential election, a new poll finds. ...

Especially if 11 million Mexican citizens participate fraudulently in our federal elections and vote 75-25 Democratica.

Thanks to Rubio, we're likely to have 'Rat presidents and a one-armed People's Republic for the next 200 years, and slavery for 2000 after that.

(The Greek cities, when they lost their independence to Philip of Macedon after their diplomatic error in the fourth century BC, were ruled by faraway despots for 2100 years. And even then they only recovered their freedom by dint of the effort of three great foreign navies against the Turks, in their behalf.)

Marco Rubio

born May 28, 1971 in Miami, FL

Parents were
Mario Rubio born in Cuba, naturalized Nov. 5, 1975.
Oria Garcia born in Cuba, naturalized Nov. 5, 1975.

Parents were NOT US Citizens at the time of his birth.

Marco Rubio is NOT a NATURAL BORN CITIZEN.

Marco's status is the same as that of Barry Soetoro, aka Barack Hussein Obama, who is NOT a Natural Born Citizen.

Rubio probably could, and Jeb Bush certainly could, but Hillary is riding on the Florida low info voters who never heard or cared about “What does it matter, really?”

Unfortunately, the GOP will probably be too lame to get her where she belongs, which is in the dock for malfeasance and negligence.

“The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of Idiots such as those who made him their president.”

Poll taken in Alachua county, home of Alex Sink. Sure.. it’s accurate. Floridians are rather tired of incompetent female pols, who are also busybodies and nudges. Let em poll Elizabeth Warren to take that temperature.

We now have one or two generations of voting age who have been taught from childhood that making an informed judgement is a form of discrimination.

Too many of these voters have the attitude that it is Hillary’s turn to be elected and that we need to have a woman president just because....

They don’t even question if Hillary is qualified to do the job or if someone else may be better qualified - that would be judgemental and unfair.

I view this as great news, since Jeb is nauseating, and Rubio has shown he lacks the integrity to be a leader. If Hillary is the standard, the standard is embarrassingly low. This sampling of prospects shows how low the state of American politics has sunk.

Has anyone ruled out the prospect of Biden running for the Democratic ticket? There is also the very real possibility that Michelle will run. Hilary may run off with Huma for a quiet life of lesbo love. Democrats might be smarter than Republicans, but dreams of power being what they are, we should expect the Democrat crowd of hopefuls to be plentiful. Unfortunately, Republicans will put on another dog and pony show, and most likely another establishment pick will win, virtually handing the show to the Democrats.

If there is not now enough research turned up on Madame Benghazi, to burn her chances for 2016, then this country pretty much deserves what is coming, essentially a sixth term (however much it may have been interrupted) of Carter-Clinton-Obama erosion and destructive bulldozing of that which had once been a magnificent example of what a nation COULD be.

I am still in favor of the secession of those Congressional districts considered to be “red” from the rest of the districts which remain adamantly “blue”, and let them form their own little republics. Since the part of the electoral map that is “red” is practically contiguous, the “blue” areas are forced into isolated little islands, badly fragmented and thus much less able to form a functioning separate single nation-state.

A Palin-Cruz ticket would be my idea of certifiable perfection.

But of course the beltway GOP-E and their ruling-class brethren would send out armies of their moneyed Rovian hatchet-men, media consultants and Fifth-Columnist saboteurs to undermine such a ticket. No question in my mind that the GOP-E would prefer the corrupt, big-governmnet Hillary to Palin-Cruz. It would be a tough go.

Not likely. As soon as Hillary has no power, Huma is gone.

She works for the Muslim Brotherhood, after all, and her job is subverting the USA.

If the Republicans put up Jeb Bush or Marc Rubio it would be giving the middle-finger to conservatives and the rest of the country. I'd vote for Hillary out of spite.

The worst part if those clowns get the nomination is having to hear the "if you don't vote for our lame Republican you're a Commie!" broken record for the millionth time.
