Clinton's Popularity Plunges As Obama 'Contagion' Spreads

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In December 2012, 70% of those polled viewed Hillary Clinton favorably; in March 2014 it was down to 56%; and now, as President Obama's approval rating hits record lows, only 52% view Hillary Clinton favorably. "She is down across the board," notes the poll, "even with groups that have been her most ardent supporters." As Bloomberg reports, among likely 2016 voters, Clinton remains ahead with 47% support compared to 38% for each of her potential opponents.

 

As Bloomberg reports,

Fifty-two percent of Americans view the former secretary of state favorably, down from 56 percent in March and 70 percent in December 2012, according to the Bloomberg National Poll.

 

The decline means Clinton wouldn’t enter a possible 2016 race as a prohibitive favorite over key Republican rivals. While she still bests them in head-to-head matchups, she doesn’t have majority support against any of them.

 

Among likely 2016 voters, Clinton beats New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, 45 percent to 38 percent, the poll shows. When matched against Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, Clinton pulls 47 percent support compared with 38 percent for each of her opponents. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida registers only slightly weaker, drawing 36 percent backing to Clinton’s 47 percent.

 

...

 

“Hillary Clinton may be suffering from contagion from President Barack Obama’s sinking scores. She is down across the board, even with groups that have been her most ardent supporters,”

Sex matters...

Women lopsidedly view her favorably, 61 percent to 31 percent; men see her unfavorably, by 49 percent to 43 percent.

 

Among likely voters, all four of the Republican candidates gain about a 6-point edge with men and Clinton scores a roughly two-to-one margin with women.

So when does Hillary start to distance herself from every Obama policy?

The trend is nevertheless promising. Here in Europe the anti-American sentiment is gradually growing hand by hand with disclosing the role of the US in the Ukrainian conflict. We're more and more fed up with the 'role of the world policeman' being widely recognized and deciphered as an act of pure hypocrisy hiding the true incentives. Hope that the descending popularity of the displayed puppets will continue and will eventually lead to getting rid of the double-jester comedy once and forever, and to election of someone normal.

If not, soon the world will be laughing at America as being the last bastion of haughty arrogance and stupidity.

Where was that poll taken? On Manhattan's upper east side?

I can't believe 52% of Americans like Hilary. Shit, I can't even believe 30%.

Obama is awful, but he is really good at mass hypnosis and NLP, so I get how he has brainwashed many Americans into liking him. But Hilary comes across like a psychotic mother in law. I size up her constituency as being restricted to lesbians and castrated males.

I asked how Putin can be considered a statesman. So far, no response.

fonz, Putin is a statesman insofar as that he follows a consistent set of policies. the trick behind being a statesman is to talk, behave and push legislation in a way that allows followers and the whole state machine to phrase the question "what would our government say/do/order in a case like this?" and spontanously produce a satisfactory answer to that question

a stateman is like a captain of a ship (of state). on some ships, the captain has nothing to do. the crew already knows what the Old Man wants. those are the seriously well run ships

(having said that, imho he stole Mussolini's Handbook of Fascism and he is seriously skirting the boundaries to classical fascism)

Not sure whether it is TV, fairy tales, or just human nature, but something pushes people to believe that there is someone on their side. As in, "Putin is against the NWO guys so he must be on our side".

Obviously a logical fallacy, but giving up this fantasy is just too painful for most. What we have right now are a few groups seeking total global control. Unless you are a direct beneficiary of one of those groups, no one is on your side.

Putin is an idealogue inasmuch as it guides his movement to or seizure of power.  Thus, he is a politician before he is a statesman.  Ron Paul strikes me as a statesman.  Statesman is a term normally reserved for orator / idealogue types, who sway by the infectious quality of the ideals they communicate.  In my mind Putin is the Thug of Kings.

He is a man of the State. This makes him a statesman. However, we do confuse statesman with someone whom does an exceptional job ln the sewers of politics, as if, a politician could be a positive. They're all tyrants, but the trolls here seem to want to shove putin down everyone's throat.

I'm ancap, but I like Putin. I would never support the design of any such system of a state, but given that the Russian state exists it's nice to know that Putin at least gives a crap about his people. It makes me feel good to know that. That is all.

anarcho-capitalists define corporations as people, don't they? if yes, there you have it

if not, how is it possible that a Republican candidate for the presidency could utter such words so easily?

you know what anarcho-capitalists are to Putin? less than vermin. unless they are oligarchs, then useful vermin (as long as contributing to the national good in the gov's way)

and before I'm misunderstood: Putin is at the opposite side of the political spectrum of an anarchist, and the opposite of a proponent of "laissez faire"

Also no one stated Putin is a libertarian, David C said he's got statesman qualities which he does (at least he doesn't have to use teleprompter, that must count for something!).

No David it's not directed at you. I'm making a general statement about some of the commentary on the board. I find it fascinating. Personally I like to see Obama exposed for what he is by Putin but in my mind he is still a statist and would violate my personal freedom just as quickly as Zero.

And that is a good point particularly if the statist part is ignored for whatever reason. That Putin has any entertainment value to me is due to the fact that I don't live under his government.

I like Putin because he doesn't hide what sort of person he is. Russians tend to be very honest about being brutal and tribal. Otherwise yes, I agree with you.

We are not brutal or some sort of shit that your msm told you. 99% of you not ever once was in Russia and don't ever have a clue about our really country and policy. We are just pissed off about your goverment. That goverment killing russian speaking people and doing it for so long by one or another way. And we are see a direct USA coup in Ukraine like starting a indirect war with us.

The sad part about is is that most of the 48% who view her unfavaorably will support some douchebag criminal like Jeb Bush  - worse than Shrub, worse than McCain. America really is stupid  -that's what happens when the criminal elements get a vertical monopoly in their control over  Wall Street, the media, the education system, Congress and the White House. Oh I forgot  -the Supreme Court too.

Hillary has a long, very public history: the '90's in the WH with Bubba, the early 2000's as carpetbag senator, her 2008 campaign where she proclaimed herself a "early 20th century Progressive (stealth marxist) and most recently her abysmal tour-de-farce as Sec State. Oh yes, and she's BFF with Huma Abeden (A Weiners wife) who has family in Egypt who are members of the mooslim brotherhood.

 

Yep, she's got a lot of baggage-and not just her "saddlebags!"

She's backed by the "Globalist" as seemingly every televised event she gets on air, which is close to daily, the backdrop always has some "global messaging" ad behind it.  For someone not sure about running it appears that she is already holding "court" with a very accomodating media.  Very strange being she doesn't have a government job right now.

When President Wilson took 2 million in a suitcase from Jewish/Zionist groups, the American President started being customarily bought and paid for by the wealthy and powerful.  Your Carnegies and Rockefellers, of course, were also in the mix, along with the banks behind the Fed.

But since Clinton, and ramped up substantially under Bush, the American President seems to be an outright puppet of international banking and corporate interests, as well as, in substanial part, transnational Zionism.

The photo op before the Wailing Wall all candidates must have makes no sense, by the numbers alone.  It's like kissing the Pope' ring in the 13th Century... to pretend to be an independent operator first show ow you are not in 'sacrd' fashion.

Old Roman fort, by the way, ravamped by Herod the G.  Myths eventually become history if people are sufficiently intellectually passive {or ethnocentric, or dumb}.

I don't think most Hilary supporters, all kidding aside, have any real idea why they support her.  I mean, they're voting for her primarily because she's not male, and secondly because she's female and thirdly because she's presumed to be the {well funded, establishment, media whore} Dem frontrunner.

What are her ideas?  Accomplishments?  And when did the American Left decide that voting for a non-male was a valid substitute for some kind of rationale for providing support?

I suppose all these hacks to it to some extent anyway, but her inevitable "we need to focus on jobs" platitudes really make me want to fuck off to Belize.
