Poll: Hillary Clinton Most Popular National Political Figure
Voice of America ^ | February 08, 2013

Posted on 02/08/2013 10:32:34 AM PST by ConservativeStatement

A national opinion poll indicates that former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is more popular than President Barack Obama and any other national political figure.

The Quinnipiac University survey released Friday said Clinton has a 61 percent favorability rating among American voters, compared to President Obama's 51 percent favorability.

Enough has come out about Benghazi that will derail her presidential ambitions. Unless she is able to throw Obama under the bus without being noticed.

If she runs, she has a better chance of losing the Dem primary than the national election. We are still far off, but ultimately there will be two leading candidates and the Dems and left-of-center nation that we have become nationally, will vote for a “victimized woman” (and that is how she will be perceived) over anyone the GOP nominates.

I don’t get this.

When she ran in the 2008 primaries, polls at the time showed she had some of the highest negatives ever recorded for a major presidential candidate. Yet now she’s somehow so popular?

Will she still be so popular if she mounts another campaign, that’s the question.

I wish that were the case, but nobody knows about Benghazi. The masses do not care. An inquisitive media would end her career, but we don’t have that. In the public mind, Hillary told off those mean Republicans who can’t deal with a strong woman. She should be run out of town on a rail for her incompetence.

Those who deride Palin based on poll numbers need to pay attention that what has happened to Hillary.

Hillary used to be one of the most unpopular women in America, now she polls higher than almost anyone.

That’s because she resigned. She went WAY UP in my book when she did that.

That is exactly it! This us-vs.-them mentality was heightened by Bill Clinton and he is still popular especially among women. It was just a few months ago where he helped win an election for Barry based on a speech at the Dem convention.

Doesn't surprise me, as I live in The People's Socialist Republik of Connecticut where there are a LOT of Hillary lovers.

I really fear she will be our next President (and probably for 8 years)... regardless of who the GOP runs in 2016.

Exactly. The presidential elections going forward will be decided in the democrat primary. The “general election” will be reduced to nothing more than a showy, four-month sendoff to the latest old, tired Repub whose “turn” it happens to be.

I can ‘understand’ this.
She is now a victim.
The only thing in her resume before was being turned down by the Marines because they didn’t want a ‘strong character woma, making millions overnight in the market(on a borrowed 2 bucks), leaving the tarmac in a hail of gunfire, being in a plane crash where she was the ‘only survivor’, stuck it to an Ambassador so she is now ‘popular’.

In todays ‘troubled times’, she could run with Gabby (D-AZ) as a running mate (doesn’t matter who P or VP) and they would probably ‘win in a walk’.

As far left as this country has turned, the dems could run Barney Frank and have a better than 60% chance of winning. We're not going to see another Republican win the Presidency.

Benghazi was the most serious threat to Hillary than any scandal she's been in...and there have been a lot.

There is one thing about Hillay...when she is hit by scandal she goes on all cylinders to destroy the opposition regardless of the truth of the allegations. This is the MO that has always made the Clintons stronger.

Well she and her co-horts are trying the same strategy with Benghazi but I don't think it will work this time. I think Benghazi HAS inflicted some irreparable wounds on her. They are currently trying as hard as they can to again achieve that over-coming strength in the wake of this scandal and they think it will work again but I do not think this is so.

I have a friend who lives in Indiana. She e-mailed me last week. Told me a few days prior to the election, her hair stylist got into a conversation as I suppose happens in that environment. The stylist mentioned the election and how she'll lose her job if Romney gets elected because "Romney doesn't want women working outside the house.” Yes, Mitt Romney is anti-women hair stylists! My friend laughed and challenged the opinion to no avail. Later that night, she told her sister, a teacher, who agreed with the stylist and said “I heard that, too, she is right.” I am now told that there is a schism of sorts in the relationship of the sisters. Point being: Dems want division and this is one result.

Hillary is so popular, that the population nominated and elected Obama just to avoid having her as president. And bipartisan, socialist political/regulator folks still haven’t learned their lesson. Give us a real conservative for America, like Duncan Hunter, or continue the current direction. Those are your only choices. No feminism in politics.

Q. Actually what did she do?

A. She traveled.

Q. What was her most significant accomplishment?

A. As Eisenhower say about Nixon, give me a week to think about it.

The thing that surprised me the most in this election cycle is how gullible American voters have become. The fact that any person with an IQ above 30 accepted all this anti woman, anti gay or anti Latino propaganda was utterly appalling. We laughed off so much of those idiotic attacks, because the same garbage has been used for decades with minimal success. Somehow, today’s population bought it hook, line and sinker.

Ok, so lets take a look at life in the good ole USA right now: Karl Rove has pledged to torpedo any conservative candidates that threaten his anointed moderate (please Lord not Jeb). And now Hillary is winning popularity contest.

Conclusion: We are doomed!

P S. Yes, its Friday I should be optimistic, but I'm fresh out of optimism.

Karl Rove will force Jeb on us, and it will be Clinton vs. Bush (meaning the election will be decided before it even begins).

Hitlery will win in a landslide.

Don’t forget “Romney will deport all Hispanics”, “Romney will reinstall segregation”, “Romney will kill all gays”, “Romney will steal from the poor to give it to his billionaire friends”

I never liked Romney but the vicious lies spread about him to scare people into voting for Obamao were beyond the pale.

Somebody needs to tell the media that Hillary is too old. Come 2016, she will be 69. Also, she is expired. Can anybody show me a politician who has been in the spotlight for more than twenty years, and the voters didn’t get tired of him/her? In my opinion, 2008 was the last year when she had a good chance of winning the presidency.
