According to a recent Harris poll, “50% of voting-age Americans say they would not vote for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) if she became the Democratic nominee for president in 2008.” Yet, overall Hillary Clinton still is out in front in many other polls. For Democrats to rail on the fact that as they claim, “George W. Bush” is a divider not a uniter, then why would Democrats support an individual like Hillary Clinton who is just as if not more polarizing?
More than one in five Democrats that participated in the survey said they would not vote for Clinton. Overall, 36 percent say they would vote for the former first lady and 11 percent are unsure of their top choice.
Forty-eight percent of Independent voters also said that they would choose another candidate over Clinton, the poll, which surveyed 2,223 potential voters, states.
Fifty-six percent of men said that they would not vote for Clinton, while 45 percent of women said that she would not be their pick. In addition, 69 percent of those 62 and older said that they would not vote for Clinton. (The Hill)
