Posted on 02/08/2013 12:12:01 PM PST by MissesBush
A new poll reveals that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the most popular national figure among American voters.
The Quinnipiac University national poll released Friday shows that Clinton enjoys a 61 percent favorability rating, 10 points higher than President Barack Obama.
Hillary Clinton ends her term as Secretary of State and the bruising inquiry into the Benghazi murders as easily the most popular actor on the American political stage today, Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said in a press release.
Obamas job approval rating tumbled to 46 percent compared to 53 percent in December.
The difference in favorability ratings for the two leaders lies in Clintons ability to win thumbs up from many more independent voters and Republicans than does the president, Brown said. The lower approval numbers for the president could be because once the election afterglow is gone, governing inevitably requires decisions that make some voters unhappy.
Forty-nine percent of those surveyed approved John Kerry taking over for Clinton.
The Quinnipiac poll also found that a majority of Americans are not happy with the way the country is going. Sixty-eight percent of American voters are somewhat to very dissatisfied with the way things are going, while only 31 percent are satisfied.
The poll was conducted from Jan. 30 to Feb. 4 with 1,772 registered voters.
What difference does it make?
This country is really finished if there is any truth to that poll. Fact is we have been finished since November 4, 2008 IMHO.
Lol. America is truly a majority stupid country.
If anything it would be worse.
The Aparat would be all the same people. The Nomenklatura would be identical people, with a few different names. The ideology would be the same. But Hillary is smarter than 0bama, and she is much more industrious (in a bad way.) No Golf outings for our girl, no siree. Full time, Full court press. And under cover of Bill, and her gender, she would get away with murder.
Wondering where Quinnipiac goes for all these “low information voters” to poll?
Does it mean likeable? Well-known? Notorious? Trustworthy? Would voters be willing to elect her to any office for which she would choose to run?
Soon Obama will be a lame duck. The corrupt MSM is now ramping up their “Elect Hillary” push operation.
The Idiocracy is here!
The USA is in the grip of mass idocy.
We saw that on display for certain in the last two presidential elections.
This confirms it.
Elections have degraded into popularity contests to be won by the candidate who can convince the idiots he/she is the most politically correct choice.
Other than being married to Slick Willie, what has she ever done? Not a damn thing. She screwed up her gig as Secretary of State with her Arab Spring and Benghazi fiascos. “American voters” are morons.
Probably neighboring New Haven (and Yale...).
I seem to recall that she helped push Arkansas to the very bottom of K-12 academic achievement. Not that Arkansas wasn't in the bottom 20% pre-Shrillary.
...and it’s hard to ignore the looooong list of the Dead Friends of Clintons.
"What does "popular" mean in this poll? Does it mean likeable? Well-known? Notorious? Trustworthy?infamous?
I see no need to believe another BS poll from the Nazi propagandists in the lying media. Our response should be to drag these leftists into a dark parking lot with no witnesses around and correct them as to their beliefs. It’s way past time to take on the Marxist media.
Irrefutable evidence that Americans, in the main, are hopeless imbeciles.
