“It’s too early to pay attention to the polls.”
While that’s a mostly true statement, whoever says it is probably trying to minimize the picture painted by the poll(s) in question. If the poll(s) portend good things (from the reader’s perspective), we tend to appreciate them and quote them. If they are negative, relative to our preferred candidate or position, we ignore or denigrate them. That’s human nature.
I’ll admit to believing that Hillary Clinton is only a couple of millimeters shy of being the devil incarnate. Based on years of watching her in action (going back to the early 80’s), I believe her to be a lying, manipulative, egotistical, criminal who shouldn’t be walking free, yet is assumed by many to be a viable candidate for the presidency.
So, you’ll understand why I haven’t enjoyed seeing polls showing that she’d beat any Republican and really clobber my conservative preference. Yes, I know that it’s still over a year and a half to the election, but I’m disturbed that so many people think that she might be worth voting for; what can they be drinking – or smoking?
Well you probably guess my stance prior to today, right? The polls are meaningless; it’s still way too early to pay attention to the polls. And you’d be right.
On the other hand … maybe I spoke too soon. Maybe we should be paying more attention to them.
Our perceptive readers can surmise by my change of tone that the overall picture displayed by two recent polls showed that Hillcifer has lost her luster and has dropped in the polls. Yea!
A CBS News poll taken March 21-24, 2015, shows Hillcifer to be upside down (an image best left unimagined) in the favorable/unfavorable category. Only 26% had a favorable view of Hillzebub, while 37 percent had an unfavorable opinion.
And can you believe this, an astonishing 36% said that they were undecided or hadn’t heard enough to form an opinion. And somehow, we allow those people to vote; is it any wonder that we keep electing people who are the antithesis of a real “public servant.”
Another question gets some interesting results too. When asked, “Do you think Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy, or not?”
Forty-seven percent said she was NOT and forty-two percent said that she IS honest and trustworthy. Eleven percent didn’t know. I’m amazed that CBS News was able to find so many functional morons to answer their poll questions. Of course, that moronic eleven percent forms the bedrock on which the democrat party is built.
Still, forty-two percent said that Hillzebub is honest and trustworthy. Where have they been? They apparently “beer-bonged” a whole mess of that blue Kool-Aid and brain-froze their gray matter.
They’ve either ignored or refused to believe any evidence in Whitewater, Travelgate, cattle futures, Vince Foster’s death, Benghazi, her emails, her foundation receiving contributions from foreign governments and several other misdeeds for which she has never been held accountable. And, in the face of all of that, 42% still believe that she is honest and trustworthy?
Here’s another one: “Do you think that it was appropriate or not appropriate for Hillary Clinton to exclusively use a personal email address and server for work while she was Secretary of State?”
While 62% of all respondents realized that is was not appropriate (some sanity persists), 43% of democrats said that it was appropriate. Again, the base of the democrat party either doesn’t understand what she did or they simply ignore the actions because she has been elevated to Queen of the Underworld (the democrat party), and can therefore do no wrong.
Those were highlights from the CBS News poll; you can see the full poll HERE.
But there was another poll – with more interesting results. A Quinnipiac poll released March 31, 2015 shows how Hildabeast fares against possible Republican candidates.
Hildabeast’s margins are down in matchups with possible 2016 Republican presidential candidates in three critical swing states, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and in no state do voters say she’s honest and trustworthy, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released today.
In the Quinnipiac poll, respondents were asked essentially the same question that was asked in the CBS poll: “Would you say that Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy or not?”
Florida voters say that Hillcifer is not honest and trustworthy by 50 to 41% and Pennsylvania voters agree by 49 to 44%. Ohio voters are divided as 46 percent say she is not honest and 47 percent say she is.
And Quinnipiac also compared Hillcifer’s support to that of a couple of the Republican candidates.
Against Walker, she leads him by 6% in Florida, 11% in Ohio, and 5% in Pennsylvania.
Against Cruz, she leads by 9% in Florida, 10% in Ohio, and 9% in Pennsylvania.
Another question asks the respondent whether they have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of several the candidates.
Hillzebub is viewed as favorable/unfavorable by 49/46% in FL, 51/43% in OH, and 48/47% in PA.
That question shows Walker with a favorable/unfavorable rating of 26/20% in FL, 22/20 in OH, and 27/19 in PA.
Cruz doesn’t come off quite as well and is underwater with a 24/31 rating in FL, 21/29 in OH, and 25/32 in PA.
This next question asks the respondent whether the candidate is honest and trustworthy (yes/no), here are the results:
Hillcifer is rated as 41/50% in FL, 47/46 in OH, and 44/49% in PA.
Walker gets 32/24% in FL, 30/22 in OH, and 32/22% in PA.
That question wasn’t asked about Cruz or any other candidate except Jeb Bush and here’s how he fared:
Jeb Bush: 54/35% in FL (his home state), 42/34% in OH, and 45/36% in Pennsylvania.
In the end, I found encouragement in these two polls. The results do indicate that some of our population is paying attention. At the same time, sizeable numbers of democrats are giving Hillzebub a pass on the email issue, saying that they find her explanation “satisfactory.”
That is what I find most disturbing. Not what Hillcifer did, it’s what I expect of her; a snake’s going to act like a snake, a weasel will act like a weasel, but that so many in the democrat party simply allow her to do anything, no matter how immoral, unethical, inappropriate, or illegal it may be, and she gets a pass.
What has she ever done to justify this unwavering godlike blind faith?
A final note: as I finish editing this post, I see the two polls being mentioned on Bill O’Reilly’s show, so maybe you’ll have already heard about the polls by the time you read this, anyway – I suggest that you look in on the polls themselves, neither Bill nor I covered everything that’s mentioned in the polls. They both have a lot of interesting detail.
