Poll: Bill Clinton Most Admired President Over Past 25 Years
NBC News ^ | 06/15/2014 | Mark Murray

Posted on 06/15/2014 12:46:08 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

Forty-two percent of respondents picked Clinton -- whose wife could very well run for the White House in 2016 -- as the president they admired the most.

He was followed by current President Barack Obama at 18 percent, George W. Bush at 17 percent and his father, George H.W. Bush, at 16 percent.

The NBC/WSJ/Annenberg Survey was conducted June 2-8 of 1,031 registered voters.

The survey's margin of error is plus-minus 3.1 percentage points.

Nobody understood the survey question because it contained the word “IS”.

It’s surprising how many have never heard of Chinagate or the Cox report.

Forty-two percent of respondents picked Clinton...

Can someone remind me... What percentage of the vote did Clinton get in 1992?

We've had nothing but terrible presidents since Reagan. All Ivy Leaguers, too.

So 4 out of the 10 people that still watch NBC voted for Clinton?

He got 49% in 1996 to Dole’s 41. The rest went to Ross Perot. It’s no surprise that Clinton is popular, the economy and market went up and he gave centrist speeches even if they were all lies.

I suspect that the population sampled consisted only of serial philanderers, compulsive liars, the viagra advertising agencies, and a lobbyist for cigar manufacturers.

Can someone remind me... What percentage of the vote did Clinton get in 1992?............................... Errrrr? I believe it was 61% that didn’t vote for him. lets 61 from 100 = 39, so I guess it would be about 39%. So how does get 39% of the vote to win?? Easy, put in a spoiler and have no run offs. Beware, it can happen again.

I asked Abe what he thought. He just sighed and repeated..

You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

He has a point. Our most popular past (and future?) presidents:

I HATED Clinton when he was Prez.

I'd much prefer him to what we have now.

He got 43% in 1992. So, I guess the hard core Clinton fans have stuck with him.

It's funny that the poll only gives us: George HW (read my lips) Bush; Clinton, George (Compassionate Conservative) Bush, and Barack (you can keep your doctor) Obama.

They may well have asked: How would you prefer to contract herpes?

Popular vote: 43.0% / 37.5% / 18.9%
Electoral vote: 370 / 168 / 0

The interesting question is, if the little general from Plano hadn't been in the race, where would his 18.9% have landed?

Even some rabid Obama supporters used to be Reagan democrats. They still like Reagan even though their brains are now mush. Their judgement is based on shallow TV viewing and Clinton is much more likable than Obama.

Well, this time frame gives on only four choices. We’re choosing among George Herbert Walker Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

Sounds to me like a meaningless survey, meant to fill the news on a slow news day.

But it’s not a slow news day, as various world crises are in the news. But let’s talk about how we admire Bill Clinton anyway, and have that segway into talk of Hillary’s book and her book tour, and will she run for president, and all that. ..........

Looking at the top two picks it’s not hard to figure out who the survey was directed to.

Said poll was taken at Klinton’s house by a commie reporter who got “second-unts” after Klinton was finished with one of his bimbos. The bimbos were doing the voting. Klinton couldn’t carry The Gipper’s jock strap.

Its quite stunning that Clinton never got the least bit of blame for the tech bubble crash that occurred in 2000, roughly the same time in his 2nd term as Bush, who got 100% of the blame for the 2008 crash.

I was still in my 20s back then.. didn’t understand (or pay too much attention to) politics.. But, I DID know that Clinton was against the defense of USA (and military). I also knew that Sr. had military experience (and cia.. and we worked a lot with them back then (not me.. I’ve never met one, that I know of)..), and Bubba evaded the draft >.<

Yep. And before Loral Space and Hughes Electronics fixed their missile guidance systems they couldn't hit Taiwan. Now they can hit the US Capitol Bldg.

Just one of the reasons Ron Brown's plane crash coincidentally happened at a fortuitous time for bubba and hillary.
