    My note: Given she is particularly unlikeable, comes across as a condescending and entitled, I think the drop will continue. Now to the article:

    COLORADO: Paul 44 - Clinton 41
    IOWA: Paul 43 - Clinton 42
    VIRGINIA: Clinton 47 - Paul 43

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's lead is wilting against leading Republican presidential candidates in three critical swing states, Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, and she finds herself in a close race with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky in each state, according to a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released today. In head-to-head matchups, every Republican candidate effectively ties her in Colorado and almost all Republicans effectively tie her in Iowa.

    Secretary Clinton has lost ground in almost every matchup in Colorado and Iowa since a February 18 Swing State Poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University. The Swing State Poll focuses on key states in the presidential election.

    ...

    "Ominous for Hillary Clinton is the broad scope of the movement today compared to her showing in Quinnipiac University's mid-February survey. It isn't just one or two Republicans who are stepping up; it's virtually the entire GOP field that is running better against her.

    "That's why it is difficult to see Secretary Clinton's slippage as anything other than a further toll on her image from the furor over her e-mail."

    "In all three of these states, more, and in Colorado many more, registered voters say she is not honest and trustworthy,"

    I read the entire thing. Interesting and it'll be even more interesting to follow this and see how things develop.

    Bingo.

    And who is this author suggesting a GOP nominee with Hispanic appeal? Upscale white appeal? And the idea that the Dems can't carry Pennsylvania? We really are stretching now.

    I'll say this now: If Hillary can't carry Pennsylvania, Democrats deserve to lose. Period, full stop.

    I continue to bemoan the lack of good GOP candidates w/ universal appeal but not beholden, however facially, to the Fundies. Scott Walker, Christie, and Jeb come close, but they're not exactly my cup of tea. Unless I'm missing someone, the others don't even come close.

    I will say this, of all potential GOP candidates now only two scare me: Jeb Bush and Christie.

    Walker is a joke and can be taken to task substantively.

    Bush is reasonable, calculating, and has immense name recognition. Yes a Clinton/Bush election would be clique, but if it comes to that, Bush might be cunning enough to pivot and moderate his views (he isn't extreme to begin with) and win swing states. His funding game is top notch as well. He's a formidable candidate.

    Christie is a bit of a wild card, but so was Obama. Christie is so likeable that I find myself drinking his "I tell it like it is" kool-aid sometimes. He's powerful rhetorically. Whereas Obama was eloquent, Christie is that uncle everyone has and loves.

    Either Bush or Christie could give Hillary a real battle.

    Your uninformed like most liberals. Christie couldn't be elected dog catcher since the events that occurred after his reelection.

    For once I would like to see a GOP candidate that is intelligent, well educated, thoughtful and moderate (not given to the lunatic fringe of the Republican Right).

    Someone who doesn't spout such ridiculous statements that he/she can't possibly be taken seriously.

    Someone who actually cares about the people he/she intends to govern.

    Someone who doesn't ignore basic facts so he/she can kowtow to the extreme right (i.e. Tea Party)

    I would then have someone to weigh my Democratic options against. Perhaps a solid person to whom I can give serious consideration.

    Typical stupid comment. Not unexpected from someone who desperately likes to appear smart.

    I thought we had him in Christie, until Bridgegate came down. MI Gov. Rick Snyder and former NY Gov. George Pataki are possibles.

    Also, Bush, Rubio, and Kasich come to mind. Some may not like Walker but his policies have done more for the people than those of the union bosses.

    Funny how we've all been here before (on RJ).
    Let's ask President Romney how unskewed polls work.
    Hillary's support is dropping?
    OMG you people are priceless.

    We need to have a real tell-it-like-it-is Republican candidate for a change.

    Maybe you can tell Quinnipiac what the shortfalls are in their polling methodology. I'm sure they'd be delighted to hear. Maybe you can also explain who those voters are who were put off over her email situation and decided she is not trustworthy.

    LOL!

    Which does make one wonder, if some of these guys here are Republican plants. They post absurd stuff, in support of the Party, that defies all logic, and frequently the facts.

    Quinnipiac’s Assistant Director, Peter A. Brown, said “In all three of these states, more, and in Colorado many more, registered voters say she is not honest and trustworthy…voters do think she is a strong leader – a key metric – but unless she can change the honesty perception, running as a competent but dishonest candidate has serious potential problems.”

    Shh, don't mention the 'R' word. They are still traumatized by his loss. Rove's Fox News meltdown was also priceless.

    Your blue wall will be demolished because these critical purple swing states determine the presidential elections. Both New York and California are irrelevant.

    sunjbill saidAs someone who tries to keep and open mind but clearly leans to the right, I have to say that unless the Republicans can sway the female vote to their side, I think Hillary wins and wins big. I really don't put much in these ultra early polls. Romney threw women away with some ill-timed and late anti-women remarks. Traditional Dems will vote for her in droves, no matter what "honesty" issues you think prevail, and women on the fence will give her the nod as well to see a woman in charge. Maybe I'm simplifying it way too much, but I think she's a shoe in. Personally, I think she will do a pretty good job, she has a lot of experience in playing politics.
    She is not a shoe in, no way. Most Americans will realize that Hillary is unfit for president as the campaigns progress. Her only experience in politics is riding the coat tails of other more skilled, effective leaders. Hillary has accomplished nothing on her own volition except pursuing her own self aggrandizement. She will make a very horrible and ineffective president.

    Hillary will not even be nominated.
