Zogby Poll: Half Say They Would Never Vote for Hillary Clinton for President
Zogby ^ | October 20, 2007

Posted on 10/20/2007 11:22:06 AM PDT by keepitreal

While she is winning wide support in nationwide samples among Democrats in the race for their party’s presidential nomination, half of likely voters nationwide said they would never vote for New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, a new Zogby Interactive poll shows.

The online survey of 9,718 likely voters nationwide showed that 50% said Clinton would never get their presidential vote. This is up from 46% who said they could never vote for Clinton in a Zogby International telephone survey conducted in early March. Older voters are most resistant to Clinton – 59% of those age 65 and older said they would never vote for the New York senator, but she is much more acceptable to younger voters: 42% of those age 18–29 said they would never vote for Clinton for President.

Don’t understand the charm bit with ‘Bubba’ maybe it is because I’m a male. All I saw from day one was a phoney, lying con artist.

Yeah but most of the votes that bubba got were probably women, and probably those same women are stupid enough to vote for her because she is a women, so be afraid, be very afraid, because the dumb blonds might vote to put Hillary on the throne.

Can you imagine having to listen to President Hillary for the next 8 years?

Can you imagine the decisions by her supreme court appointees?

Wanting Hillary to win the nomination, just to beat her in the general, is like grabbing onto a 10,000 volt live wire.

I still remember not being particularly concerned with the Sink Emperor when I first saw him move up in the polls. Then as I learned what a lying sack he was, not to mention all the other stuff we were only learning just before the election, I figured there is no way this guy stands a chance.

Since then I have learned that it is better that Hillary not even get the nomination, rather than chance her clawing her way to power.

Zogby normally oversamples Demos by quite a bit and her negatives could be quite a bit higher than this poll shows.

18 to 29 years old is an interesting band of voters because they tend to not vote. Her negatives are still climbing and if the sample was representative of the voters in general I would not be surprised to “never vote for Hillary” to be as high as 56%.

You mean a Supreme Court with seven Ruth Buzzi Ginsburgs?

This is the most important issue in the next presidential election. Stevens is 87. Scalia, Kennedy, and Ginsburg are all over 70. Souter and Breyer will be over 70 by the time the next president is sworn in.

Whoever is elected president in 2008 will get to fill at least 2 and maybe 3 seats.

President Hillary? Be afraid. Be very afraid.

You haven't told me anything that I haven't heard a dozen times over the past couple of months. At least try to be original when attempting to express righteous indignation. I take it that I insulted your "boy". So which one was it?...Giuliani, or Romney? I'm betting it's ole Willard...my lifelong hunting buddy and lifetime NRA member! :-) Truly, I have no idea. Something I wrote raised your ire though. After a brief look at your postings, I know why you're mad now. Oh well...it's not plausible for me to go through every FreeRepublic memebers' postings in advance to see who I'm going to aggravate. It certainly wasn't personal, which is more than can be said about your reply to me.

So I'm going to help the traitor party to win eh? You could view it that way if you want, but the same can be said of you. You choose. We choose. But too many will choose the lesser of two evils out of fear. We'll choose because it's a right and correct thing to do...even knowing that people like you have "thrown" the election. But as I said, we don't fear, which is a "plus" when with dealing people who are driven by it. With no fear, we have a clarity of vision which is lacked by those who are driven by the fear of Hillary becoming President.

It really grates my nerves lately listening to various conservative talk radio shows (most of which I'm a great fan of). The hosts do a lot of fear mongering and focus on how bad it's going to be if Hillary becomes President (and they are correct!). Then they split hairs on the dog by choosing the best of the worst from the dismal GOP top picks.... but hey, they're better than Hillary right?

The sad truth is that they are NOT better than Hillary. But for a person to realize this, they're left in a lurch with no real viable solution...at least according to the omnipotent, and all knowing GOP. ...and we MUST follow the GOP pick! Because if we don't, then Hillary will win! It's a difficult thing to come to terms with. Your comments to me are proof enough that people are having difficulty with it.

What is it with the RINO insult? You tell me. Were you insulted by it? Did I direct it at you? I don't t-h-i-n-k so.

Since you took the time express your opinion, here's more of mine. Before anybody complains to me directly, if you don't like the "Giuliani - Hitler 08" graphic, then just tell the admin mods. They're charged with keeping the peace around here.

Useful Idiot! Rudy Giuliani

If enough people see this, her negatives will increase. Go see the trailer for HILLARY! UNCENSORED and pass it on to everyone you know. Thanks.

“Time for the Clintons to dig up a third party candidate.”

They don’t need to if the republicans nominate Rudy...

Unless it’s Al Gore.

Al should head the Green Party ticket. I bet they'd siphon off a record percentage, probably even better than Perot in 1992.

I respectfully disagree . She doesn’t need Obama . She will easily carry Illinois as well as the black vote . It would also be too radical of a ticket .

She will pick a white male most likely from a Red state in an attempt to pick off a Red state for the win .

Barry O’Bama knows it’s over , and will be a good boy for a run in the future , or placement in a Hillary administration .

Her hubby won with 43% of the vote. Third party candidate at that time

I bet some from the Hillary campaign will be offering Ron Paul a hefty ammount of Chinesse money to run third party. (not saying he'd take it, I don't know him well enough)

I think HH is just one of many that are fed up with having to vote for the lesser of two evils presented to us time and time again.........

Isn’t anyone short of Mr Hunter IMO in this race that has a record of facts proving the best conservative record to the best of my limited research (still learning of course) . Election promises are just that words. Giuliani, Romney, McCain, Thompson all have records as well.....theirs are IMHO tainted.

The GOP hands the reins to Rudy or Mitch the DNC gets a freebie IMHO.....

Lesser than of two evils is not an option for my vote ever again. I suspect Hiredhand’s opinion is such as well.......

Stay safe ....Hope yer well !

Hard to win when 50% of the voters will NEVER vote for you!

Might I remind folks .... Bill Clinton didn't need 50% of the vote to get in the WH in either 92 or 96

You people who keep harping on that one subject crack me up. The media WILL NEVER LET THE PUBLIC AT LARGE HEAR what we already know. She (and Bill) have hired all sorts of voice coaches, and they are VERY careful this time. There’s no doubt in my mind she’s even had (or is taking) anger management classes. Don’t you think the two who own the cRATic party are smart enough to know their own weaknesses? Or hasn’t anyone here noticed she’s only been caught screeching once or twice since she announced what we already knew since 2000? Forget it.

A valid point but she does not have near the charm that Bubba did.


Who needs it when you own the MSM??
