Bloomberg Poll: Democrats & Independents Don’t Want a Hillary Clinton Coronation, Nor Do They Trust Her Email Story
A recent Bloomberg Political poll shows that both Independents and Democrats do not want a Hillary Clinton coronation, instead they want a challenging primary that will vet the Democrat candidate. According to Democrats and independents, 72% of both groups say her party would be best served by a robust primary where she faces a serious challenger for the nomination. This comes just days away from Hillary Clinton formally announcing that she is throwing her crown into the ring for a 2016 presidential run.
What, me lie?
If Hillary Clinton is to become her party’s 2016 presidential nominee, independents and even Democrats overwhelmingly want to see her earn the title, according to a Bloomberg Politics national poll that also shows increasing headwinds for her candidacy.
As Clinton prepared to formally announce her candidacy on Sunday, nearly three-quarters of Democrats and independents in the survey said it would be a good thing for the Democratic Party if she were to face a “serious” challenger for the nomination. Democrats and independents hold the same view, with 72 percent of both groups saying her party would be best served by a robust primary.
What be more damning and problematic for Hillary Clinton is that 53% of respondents stated that she purposely withheld and deleted emails when she was Secretary of State and conducted government business with a person email account and stored them on her own person server. Hillary Clinton would seem to have a trust issue, but sadly, many Democrats don’t seem to care. Even though 53% say she purposely withheld and deleted relevant emails, the same respondents in this poll gave Clinton a 48% net favorable, 44% net unfavorable rating. That can be described as nothing but pathetic and speaks more to the ethically challenged Democrats who would support someone even if they cant be trusted.
But as Hillary Clinton would say, What difference does it make that she is untrustworthy. Neither are her supports.
