Q POLL HAS PRESIDENTIAL RACE NEARLY DEAD EVEN …
This is a rather ominous sign for Hillary Clinton as the most recent Quinnipiac University National Poll has Democrat Hillary Clinton has 42% while Republican Donald Trump is at 40%. Obviously, this poll is within the margin of error and a long ways away from the November 2016 presidential election; however, Trump has barely begun to campaign. And Hillary, who has been on the political landscape for decades is a known commodity. As the MSM likes to say about Trump, maybe it is Hillary who has hit her voting ceiling?
What might be most comical about the poll is that both candidates have high negative ratings and a majority of those polled believe both Clinton and Trump will not make good presidents. Of course that begs the question, then why did people vote for them in the primaries?
Democrat Hillary Clinton has 42 percent to Republican Donald Trump’s 40 percent – too close to call – as American voters say neither candidate would be a good president and that the campaign has increased hatred and prejudice in the nation, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.
This compares to results of a June 1 national poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN- uh-pe-ack) University, showing Clinton edging Trump 45 – 41 percent.
When third party candidates are added to today’s survey, Clinton gets 39 percent with Trump at 37 percent. Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson gets 8 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein gets 4 percent.
“The 2016 election has increased the level of hatred and prejudice in the U.S.,” 61 percent of American voters say. Another 34 percent say it has had no impact. Of that 61 percent, 67 percent blame the Trump campaign and 16 percent blame the Clinton campaign.
“It would be difficult to imagine a less flattering from-the-gut reaction to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
“This is where we are. Voters find themselves in the middle of a mean-spirited, scorched earth campaign between two candidates they don’t like. And they don’t think either candidate would be a good president.”
