woodsmen saidQuinnipiac University Poll: In a general election matchup, Clinton gets 46 percent of American voters to 42 percent for Paul and 45 percent of voters to 41 percent for Rubio. She leads other top Republicans:
46 - 37 percent over Christie;
47 - 40 percent over Huckabee;
47 - 37 percent over Bush;
46 - 38 percent over Walker;
48 - 37 percent over Cruz;
50 - 32 percent over Trump.
That's so hilarious I'd be ashamed to post it... but keep on wishing...
Averaging it out on keyboard .... to 47% for Hillary
What that really shows is that Hillary is getting all the Democratic votes in the US that amount to....
31% of the population votes Democratic plus
16% of Independents (out of possible 42%)
47% for Hillary ....
That's three points short of a win and the competition hasn't even started.
And she's only getting 38% of Independents... << that should scare you.
Popular vote percentages in some recent(ish) elections:
Bush - 47.9%
Gore - 48.4%
Nader - 2.7%
Clinton - 49.2%
Dole - 40.7%
Perot - 8.4%
Clinton - 43.0%
Bush - 37.4%
Perot - 18.9%
All Hillary needs is for Perot to run again. And the Republicans can hope that Nader will run again.
Really, all she needs is for a lot of people to sit it out. And right now that scenario seems quite possible. She wouldn't need 50 percent of eligible voters to vote for her. She wouldn't even necessarily need 50 percent of the people who vote to vote for her. Hey, she wouldn't even necessarily need to get more votes than the Republican candidate, as 2000 showed us all too well.
Really, with more than 17 months to go, who knows what the hell is going to happen? Unlikely though it seems, perhaps the Democrats will come up with someone better than Hillary, and the Republicans . . . well, I don't think it's possible for anyone to get the nomination whom I wouldn't find repugnant, but I suppose anything is possible.
