American voters divided on Hillary Clinton: poll
Yahoo News ^ | 6/19/14 | Dylan Stableford

Hillary Clinton might be the prohibitive favorite for the 2016 Democratic nomination, but Americans are equally divided about voting for her, a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll finds.

According to the results of the survey released on Wednesday, 38 percent of registered American voters say they would vote for Clinton if she decides to run, while 37 percent said they would "definitely" oppose her.

“She is perceived to be such a massively skilled politician," Republican pollster Bill McInturff said in a release accompanying the poll. "Voters worry that if she’s really such a political animal, can you really trust her?”

The results suggest a deeply partisan divide exists when it comes to a Clinton candidacy. Among registered Democrats, 75 percent say they would vote for Clinton. But 70 percent of Republicans and 40 percent of independents say there’s “no chance” they would vote for her.

The only equal division that makes sense for this dried up beeyatch is hate her or REALLY freakin' hate her. Put me in the latter group.

I don't get the infatuation with this family. I just don't freakin' get it.

Can you say "cognitive dissonance?"

LOL. I almost spit my coffee all over my screen when I read that.

Why don't y'all ask Ambassador Stevens about that...then get back to us.

Sheesh!

... can you really trust her?

I trust she will be on the wrong side on every issue.

shouldn’t be divided at all, she sucks and she’s incompetent. But what can one expect? Obama still sits at 40-45% popularity.

We have a nation of brainless drooling drones that can’t think their way down/up an escalator.

Ted Cruz please run for POTUS and make Obama pay for his amnesty episodes as of late. Oh how the amnesty BS stunts he’s pulled lately would come back to bite him and his big butt wife right in the a$$ when all of his Central American friends vote for Cruz. Oh how it would make my day.

You must accept the power of the media. The media, makes, breaks, creates and destroys. The media even elected a negro community organizer out of Chicago.

Hillary’s lack of popularity can be overcome by poll spiking and when she runs for prez a lot of vote fraud will put her in the WH. She will have to be complicit in committing crimes to become top criminal of the US. Crime is her thing, it has gotten her where she is today.

Not to worry about Hillary’s low poll numbers. She will grow on dissenters. Like a fungus!

Perhaps the most polarizing figure of the modern era until Barack Obama came along.

We have had more than enough trash in The White House, we do not need any more.

50% of the American people should limit their voting to Dancing With the Stars. It has everything the Democrats demand:

  1. Multiple repeat voting allowed.
  2. Polls open past 9 pm.
  3. Voting spread out over multiple days.
  4. Registration is a joke or non existent.
  5. No racist ID required.
  6. No need to think, just use your feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelings.

Except for the Feminazis, the Dems don’t really want Hillary. They want Bill again and Hillary is the vehicle to make Bill president again, overriding the constitutuion.

really? massively skilled? by whom? Washington insiders?
being a capable liar does not make one a skilled politician. At least one hopes that isn’t the only qualification.

The Democrats won the last two presidential elections by running a candidate that people felt sorry for. They will keep running that play until it doesn’t work.
Do people feel sorry for Hillary? The response to her “we were broke” statement shows that people don’t feel sorry for her.
I would look for a different candidate from the Democrats.

She’s been out of the limelight for a year and a half already, and can only get 37% support.

Wait till the public sees her for another year and a half - more gaffes, misstatements, corrections, insulting the interviewers, hiding behind pallets of water bottles .... her numbers can only go down, the more we see.

“...Central American friends vote for Cruz.”

The present horde of Latrino immigrants are the bottom of the societal spectrum in the Turd World pest holes which spawned them.

They come here for the Free Stuff. They are GibsMeDats of a slightly different color, but with the same desire to get their snout in a Gubment Feeding Trough - Gimme Pigs, they are Gimme Pigs.
