Poll: Clinton’s gender is her top 2016 selling point
The Daily Caller ^ | 21 Mar 2014 | Caroline May

Posted on 03/21/2014 11:32:24 AM PDT by mandaladon

If Hillary Clinton runs for president in 2016 her top selling point will be — not her experience, not her competency, or intelligence — the fact that if she would be the first U.S. president with ovaries.

A new Gallup poll released Friday found that when asked what the best or most positive thing about a Hillary Clinton presidency would be, 18 percent cited the fact that she would be the first woman president. The second most popular answer, at nine percent, was her experience, specifically her foreign policy experience.

Other positives, that netted at least five percent of respondents, were that she would be the best choice, that she would be a change from the Bush and Obama administrations and that she would stick to a Democratic agenda.

A little less than half of respondents either had no opinion (22 percent) and answered “nothing” (27 percent).

“Clearly Clinton’s ‘unique selling proposition’ is that she would be the first woman president,” Gallup’s Frank Newport writes. “Nearly one in five Americans mention this historic possibility as a positive, including 22% of women, 27% of 18- to 29-year-olds, and 30% of Democrats.”

Just four percent of Americans said the most negative aspect of a Clinton presidency would be the fact that she is a woman, and one percent said that the country is not ready for a woman president.

When broken down by party, Democrats who had a negative view of a Hillary Clinton presidency were most likely to say they “don’t want a female president.” Six percent of Democrats gave that response. Most Republicans said the most negative aspect would be a “continuation of this path.”

She may be the first with ovaries, but she will have the record for the highest quantity of estrogen.

Skin color was enough for Obama, gender will be enough for Hillary. I know plenty of women who say it’s time for a woman president. Not that it’s time for a competent woman president, just a woman, any woman.

Women will cross party lines to vote for someone in the “sisterhood”.

Of course, I wonder what a conservative crowd would say about Sarahs selling points?

I imagine what conservatives view as important are totally different from liberals.

There are far too many voters out there who simply don’t learn the lessons of casting a ballot for someone because of what they are, vs. what they’ve accomplished.

My outlook for this country’s future is very dark indeed.

Yep. I have no doubt there are prominent, erstwhile conservative women who will nonetheless vote for Hillary "because it's time" for a woman in the White House.

First it was 0bama's swagger, now it's Clinton's gender. Never mind Fast & Furious, Solyndra, IRS scandal, NSA overreaches, failed Russian Reset, treasonous support for the MB in Egypt, and the murder of four Americans in Benghazi due to Clinton's criminal negligence, it's all about 'STYLE' with the ladies. 'SUBSTANCE' or competence be damned!

When future civilizations look back at America, they'll wonder why men allowed single females voters to destroy it.

I wonder what the respondents would say about Sarah Palin?

Like organ grinders' monkeys, they've been trained to respond on cue with the media-abetted talking points:

"Palin's an idiot."

"She's so stupid she says she can see Russia from her house."

"Palin's a quitter"

"I hate Palin"

More stupid political symbolism.. This is the kind of thinking that got an incompetent, leftist half-black person elected president. The fact that Obama is half-black means nothing to me. The fact that Obama is a leftist moron destroying our country means a lot more to me. Hillary Clinton is a humorless, shrew who has never led anything, has never done anything constructive, and will certainly be as big a disaster as Obama.

I guess it is good that some of the voters see Hillary as a woman. Her husband certainly doesn’t.

So 18 percent say the most positive thing would be that she’d be the first female President. Not so bad when compared with the 27 percent that said the best thing would be “nothing”.

I had a co-worker tell me that if Hillary ran for President, she was going to vote for her .. because it would be “historic” .. not one word regarding Hillary’s character.

I gave her the book “Hillary’s Pursuit of Power”, written by Jerry Zeifman (a lifelong democrat). Jerry said he “concluded that Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be President. And .. after my co-worker read the book .. she changed her mind about voting for Hillary.

We cannot allow the left to perpetrate this folly upon us again.

Her work history is remarkably unimpressive.

She’s never said anything original, honest or witty in her many, sad years as a public figure, (i.e. she’s dull and untrustworthy.)

She looks like a drunk.

Her closet could be franchised as a Skeletons-A-Million box store.

She still stands by that smarmy man, Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton, a true paragon of feminine virtue!

Not that it’s time for a competent woman president, just a woman, any woman.

It's about time for someone to sneak up behind Hillary, jerk down that pant suit, and show these women her balls.

Maybe then, they'd vote differently

Well, if being a woman is the only requirement, why don’t we make Reba McEntire president? At least she can entertain us by singing during her press conferences! Or how about President Jennifer Anniston? At least the men will think she’s “not guilty”!

I am ashamed of my fellow women. The suffragettes marched to get women the vote...and for this?

....”how we got stuck with the Worst President Ever”....

Because our selection of candidates is now like an American idol selection....or “Voice”. Look the part and give the audience what they want to hear...and then we get to push the button even though the winner has already been chosen by those running the program.
