    Hillary's Declining Poll Numbers

    Tick... Tick... Tick...

    My Way News - AP-GfK Poll: Clinton's standing falls among Democrats


    Hillary Rodham Clinton's standing is falling among Democrats, and voters view her as less decisive and inspiring than when she launched her presidential campaign just three months ago, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll.

    The survey offers a series of warning signs for the leading Democratic candidate. Most troubling, perhaps, for her prospects are questions about her compassion for average Americans, a quality that fueled President Barack Obama's two White House victories.

    Just 39 percent of all Americans have a favorable view of Clinton, compared to nearly half who say they have a negative opinion of her. That's an eight-point increase in her unfavorable rating from an AP-GfK poll conducted at the end of April.

    The drop in Clinton's numbers extends into the Democratic Party. Seven in 10 Democrats gave Clinton positive marks, an 11-point drop from the April survey. Nearly a quarter of Democrats now say they see Clinton in an unfavorable light.

    "I used to like her, but I don't trust her," said Donald Walters of Louisville, Kentucky. "Ever since she's announced her candidacy for the presidency I just haven't liked the way she's handled things. She doesn't answer questions directly."

    Of course she would go lower...her numbers were amazingly high. Bernie entering the race helps lower the unrealistic numbers. As soon as the primaries are over her numbers will shoot back up. She leads and for now she seems to be holding that lead. Republicans would sell their first born to have her lead throughout this process.

    Nice try at deflection. Heh.

    From the OP:

    Notice two obviously CONTRADICTORY moves by the Right-

    1. They endlessly tell us "Hillary's poll numbers are collapsing" and "She'd be EASY to beat in November 2016".


    2. They desperately celebrate ANY hint that Bernie Sanders or Jim Webb or O'Malley have risen 1-2% in the polls against Hillary and are "only" 20-30% behind her.


    Why would they desire Sanders or Webb to be the Dem Nominee....if they just told us how EASY it would be for "any Republican" to beat Hillary?!?!?!?!?

    Remember how absolutely SURE you were.........................

    that Obama would "never be re-elected, his disapproval numbers are just too high"?

    The Right is as afraid of H. Clinton as they claimed the Left was of S. Palin.
    Team Clinton will be the next POTUS and the GOP knows it.

    Didn't say anything about "posting"......wasn't that your view in say late 2011 early 2012?


    And be honest....wasn't there some part of you....large or small....that actually BELIEVED Rush Limbaugh and Dick Morris when they promised you a "Romney Landslide"? Especially as you clicked on link after link on Drudge where Matt the Hat told you "Romney Leads By 11% In Kansas" or something?

    But notice the DOUBLETHINK they engage in.

    They say "Hillary can't win. She has no shot in November 2016"....

    yet they ALSO.....DESPERATELY post any news of Sanders moving up in the polls to "only" 25 points behind Hillary and want Sanders to seriously challenge her for the Nomination.

    Why would you want an "easy to beat" candidate to NOT be your opponent?!?!?!?!?
