Quinnipiac Poll: Hillary Clinton ‘Easily The Most Popular Actor On The American Political Stage’
CBS/Qunnipiac ^ | 02/08/13

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.

Obama’s job approval rating tumbled to 46 percent compared to 53 percent in December.

“The difference in favorability ratings for the two leaders lies in Clinton’s 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 is it with this country that they put so much faith, trust and regard into seedy characters like the Clintons? It's not as if she's got some great charm, charisma or certainly beauty. In fact, I think she usually comes off as quite angry and rude esp. in saying something like "What difference does it make?" about how our 4 diplomats were killed. She's easily one of the most corrupt characters to ever ooze onto the national stage---the Wall Street Journal has a 5 volume set of their op eds from the Clinton years just about the corruption from these two. Honestly, I think the country is lost when they exercise such poor character judgments. It's a sad time for this country when people hate on and villify good men and women like George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, John Boehner, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, etc. and lionize low lives like the Obamas, the Clintons, etc. This is emblematic of our country's loss of values in general. And we know of course the leftist media has created these cults of personality around people so unworthy of them like Obama and Hillary. But it still speaks volumes about our country that they're not discerning nor knowledgeable enough to see beyond the media's b.s. and their attempts to brainwash them.

This country is really finished if there is any truth to that poll. Fact is we have been finished since November 4, 2008 IMHO.

Only divine intervention can save a country that believes a Hillary Clinton administration would be different in any way, shape, manner or form than a Barack 0bama administration.

If anything it would be worse.

Much.

Much.

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.

What does "popular" mean in this 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.

America is finished. I came to that conclusion when the Sink Emperor was reelected in 1996.

Only a picture can really capture the fully unhinged nature of the comment. She sure is worked up over something that makes no difference, isn't she?

Probably neighboring New Haven (and Yale...).

...what has she ever done?

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.

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.

IN OUR household, they're both at -100%.

She may have been better than Obamugabe in the White House, though now with the blood all over her hands in Benghazi, Egypt, and Syria...I think her hatred of Israel is nearly as great as that of her former boss, the Assclown from Hawaii/Illinois/Kansas/Kenya/Indonesia/wherever.

There ought to be commercials already airing blasting this heartless woman for those comments.

She needs to be stopped with a pre-eminent media campaign.

Next, the media will turn to that Cuomo thug in New York. But he is quickly becoming damaged goods.
