Bad News for Hillary: 52% of Americans Won't Vote for Her No Matter What

I know it's just a poll and that it's still really early, but it can't make her feel very confident about her chances in November next year should she actually win the Democratic nomination:

More than half of Americans say they wouldn't consider voting for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton for president if she becomes the Democratic nominee, according to a new national poll made available to McClatchy Newspapers and NBC News.


The poll by Mason-Dixon Polling and Research found that 52 percent of Americans wouldn't consider voting for Clinton, D-N.Y. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a Republican, was second in the can't-stand-'em category, with 46 percent saying they wouldn't consider voting for him.

Clinton has long been considered a politically polarizing figure who would be a tough sell to some voters, especially many men, but also Clinton-haters of both genders.

Thursday's survey provides a snapshot of the challenges she faces, according to Larry Harris, a Mason-Dixon principal.

"Hillary's carrying a lot of baggage," he said. "She's the only one that has a majority who say they can't vote for her."

Clinton rang up high negatives across the board, with 60 percent of independents, 56 percent of men, 47 percent of women and 88 percent of Republicans saying they wouldn't consider voting for her.

And the poll is of likely general election voters. That's got to smart.

Kind of hard to screw or skew this type of poll. No words like less likely, somewhat likely etc.

"She's the only one that has a majority who say they can't vote for her"

And this is all that matters in the fantasy world the democrats live in. She who arrogantly pretends to speak for the people, the MAJORITY. How is this lying fraud , wife of another lying fraud going to spin this earth shaking news? I hope there are no ash trays within waddling distance. Heads up!

He he , that's right , so can I. I really don't think I could put an x next to her name in the primary even if it was 100% guaranteed that she would lose the election. I'd feel filthy for the rest of my life already having ignorantly voted for her partner in crime. ugh!

The real question is, will 52% of registered voters actually go to vote? If a siginificant of the 52% that won't vote for her, actually don't go to the polls, she could win.

Her partner-in-crime won the presidency with 43.3% of the vote. But this time I think Bloomberg will hurt her while Perot hurt Bush more.

Hillary's not going to be the nominee anyway. Al Gore is. Go to Draft Gore right now and sign the petition.

If you think about it, Gore has played this thing perfectly. While the Democrat candidates are battling it out in the trenches he stays above the fray. He's going to step in right at the point where it appears Hillary has it but Democrat anxiety about her electability will be peaking.

Gore's going to run, and he's going to beat whoever the Republicans put up. Mark my words.

At least the Goreacle supporters have some chance of seeing their guy win the nomination. Ron Paul has zero chance. Sorry to break it to you.

It's not that he doesn't have some good points on some things. But when he moves into Troofer Movement territory, he loses a whole swath of potential voters. Face it, at that point he just seems whacky.

As I commented yesterday -

I hope the Goreacle does get in the race. First, he's a known loser.

Better yet, I hope the democratics nominate him as their candidate. I see him as the easiest to beat. He's been way too visible the last few years. There's some great material out there for GOP campaign ads.

Imagine an ad with his red, enraged face screamin, "He lied to us, he played on our fears!". Then show the Goreacle making his pronouncements on the threat from Saddam and WMD.

Then, in the Presidential debates, surely global warming will come up. A year from now, AGW will be even more discredited than it is getting now. Any one of our front runners should be able to blow the Goreacle's AGW alarmism right out of the water.

As an added note, I find it humorous as pundits talk about the GOP presidential candidates distancing themselves from Bush. Yet, the Goreacle, Clinton's VP, sprinted away from him as fast as he could.

The Goreacle didn't even carry his own state. Even Mondale carried his state in Reagan's landslide victory.

Chris G:

Don't fret. 52% won't vote for her? No problem. With the help of dead voters on active rolls, and multiple voter affidavits across the state from the same individual voters, Hillary will win with 52% of the vote..... But wait. What happens with a 52% to 52% tie between the her and the Republican candidate?

Still don't fret. Just get Gore to go on tour screeching " SEE AMERCIA... THEY DID IT TO ME, NOW THEY ARE TRYING TO DO IT TO HER",

And Michael Moore will give multiple interviews which will end with "It's a shame this happens in a country as great as America. Jesus have mercy on us".

Earth to Kim: Hillary doesn't need 52% to win. Who was the last to break 50%? HW or Reagan?

Of course, Jumbo Dwarf (a weak candidate) won't win even the Democratic nomination because Gore has been laying the logistical groundwork for his party coronation for the past 6 months (so the GOP has bigger problems ahead than it realizes).

D. Doré:

Didn't Bill win both of his presidential bids with less than 50% each time?

The Republican party has to find a strong candidate that stands firm to bring out the conservative vote, and not a candidate who courts the middle or left.

The middle will join with a conservative candidate who has a great plan of action, and the strength and fortitude to carry it out.

Has anyone read: Winning The Future, or read about the plan that Mr. Gingrich has spent over 10 years putting together?

Eventhough I really like Duncan Hunter, I don't think there's a candidate on this Earth that could accomplish more good to change America for the better than Newt Gingrich. He's the only one with a comprehensive plan, not just political pitches.

Dore': I hear where your coming from, but Newt's POTENTIAL is low (lower than his recognized political ability). It's the double divorcing-the-bed-ridden-wife thing. It's No Go, and he knows it (which is why he WILL NOT enter the race), and if he does, he'll crash and burn like Mitt Romney's dad.

Think about Ron Paul. He's an MD and a USAF veteran with a political philosophy based on the US Constitution. Plus he never let freedom for Americans get theoretically waylaid by permissive Open Border policies. In fact, he's adamantly against the North American Union/SPP.gov subversiveness of BOTH parties.
Check his policy positions; what you see is what you get.

Ask if they plan to return the "w's" they stole when they left. Ask them how much support they are getting from the Chinese Communists this time. Any Republican candidate that cannot defeat Hillary Clinton on the issues, in any debate, on any topic deserves losing. Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney will tear her a new one. The bitch is a communist. It doesn't take a village, it takes parents who give a shit.l

D. Doré:

byranD,

Our nation has so far elected a person who used the lamest excuse about smoking pot, and then re-elected him so he could lie to everyone about his infidelity to his wife.

Then, they elected a man who had previous problems with cocaine and alcohol, who didn't deny any of it.

I think they can handle a person who's been divorced twice.

Also, you missed earlier in the post where I talked about the middle following a conservative. The only conservative nature exemplified in Ron Paul is the length of his name.

As for Mr. Gingrich, I caught a televised seminar of his about 2 years ago, and was completely blown away with not only his knowledge of how the goverment works and fails, but also plausible solutions to implement to fix them. I haven't agreed with every one of his opinions, and I'm not saying he's a Reagan clone, but surely until Newt, there hasn't been a candidate since Reagan that has had as detailed and realistically accomplishable, a plan.

Why would anyone vote for Ron Paul when they can just vote for a democrat? At least then they'd get all the cool bumper stickers.

Larkin's prediction has more chance of coming true than most of his prognostications. If Gore wants to get in and run hard and spend enough of his own money to do it, he could win. Democrats are wary of Hillary and beginning to see the bloom coming off the Obama rose. Edwards has the image they want, but lacks substance and ability (other than the ability to pander shamelessly, not an altogether useless one in politics). Richardson has all the charisma of Dick Cheney, without the substance.

Gore could walk away with the nomination, given his strong leftward march since losing the 2000 election. He would have practically no chance in the general election with his current platform, though. He's gone so far away from the mainstream that he appeals to the far-left nut cases who troll here, for example.

To win an election, you only need to turn out enough of your voters to win enough states in the electoral college. In 2000, Bush proved you can lose the popular vote by a half million votes, but still win the election by bringing out enough of your voters in the right states. The 2004 Kerry strategy was based on winning enough votes in the electoral college only, and not the popular vote, but fell short.
