June 2015 poll Hillary is running behind Republicans in battleground states as she prepares do-over for sputtering campaign with New York City speech

    Even though the Republicans don't have her name recognition and the Republican support is currently divided among several candidates -

    ------------------

    Pollsters contacted 1,618 active voters in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia
    Results put Hillary Clinton one point behind a 'generic' Republican in those critical 'swing' states that will determine the 2016 election
    A majority of swing-state voters don't believe Hillary shares their values, and say they don't trust her
    Real numbers may be even worse for her since the survey 'oversampled' Democrats and women
    Survey was commissioned by conservative American Crossroads super PAC


    As Hillary Clinton gears up to reboot her historic but underwhelming presidential campaign with a dramatic New York City speech on Saturday, poll numbers show she might need more than a Big Apple skyline to motivate voters next year in key swing states.

    Polling data collected this month by Vox Populi Polling in the six battleground states most likely to determine the 2016 presidential election show that Clinton trails a generic Republican candidate by 1 percentage point overall.

    The 46–47 showing for the former secretary of state is a departure from nearly every poll since March that asked voters to choose between Clinton and a specific GOP candidate. Only Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, has posted a winning margin against Clinton, and that was a month ago in a Fox News poll.

    The rest of the field runs consistently behind her – until now, perhaps.

    Clinton's suddenly flagging performance in a hypothetical contest against a Republican – who is still unnamed – threatens to throw cold water on her big coming-out moment.

    'Sure it's a challenge, and a big one,' a Democratic campaign consultant in New Hampshire told Daily Mail Online on background. 'I mean, look – we were hoping she'd run the table and lead wire-to-wire, but her negatives are high so it's going to be a long year-and-a-half.'

    Clinton's negatives are indeed high. Fifty per cent of active voters in the swing states of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, and Virginia told pollsters that they have a negative impression of her. Just 42 per cent view her positively.

    Certainly, even many of her most ardent defenders recognize Hillary Clinton had no signal accomplishment at the State Department to her name, no indelible peace sealed with her handshake, no war averted, no nuclear crisis defused. There are few Eric Schmidts out there still willing to make the case for her as an enormously consequential figure in the history of Foggy Bottom.

    Not only did she have no accomplishments, but her tenure was marked by a string of failures including, Russia, Syria, Egypt, Libya, .....

    ---------------------

    It’s not too early to remind voters of the list of her failures — lack of preparedness in Libya, misjudgment as to al-Qaeda’s strength, the absence of a coherent plan to address the Arab Spring, a faulty assessment of Bashar al-Assad (whom she labeled a “reformer”), deteriorating relations with Israel and an obsessive focus on settlements, and cluelessness that withdrawal of U.S. forces in Iraq would give the radicals a foothold.
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2015/04/08/hold-hillary-clinton-accountable-for-her-failures/

    ---------------------

    Clinton, contrary to President Obama’s assertions, is not among the best secretaries of state but among the worst. If you want to be generous you can say she was an ineffective bit player in a foreign policy run out of the Oval Office. Let’s recap her tenure:

    Failure to negotiate a status of forces agreement in Iraq

    Premature pullout from Afghanistan without regard to consequences

    Russian reset

    Victory lap on Osama bin Laden giving a false impression of al-Qaeda’s decimation

    Fixation on the “peace process” and obsession with Israeli settlements

    The ensuing bad relationship with the Israeli government

    Blindsiding the Israeli prime minister with a public declaration of U.S. policy on “1967 borders”

    Backing Hugo Chavez’s candidate in Honduras rather that the middle and business classes’ choice (who was also pro-American)

    Relaxation of Cuban sanctions followed by Alan Gross’s imprisonment

    Surprising Poland and the Czech Republic by pulling out anti-missile sites

    Embracing Hosni Mubarak (calling him a family friend) just when pressure was needed to prevent what ultimately became
    his overthrow

    The lack of a cogent approach to the Middle East

    Trying to engage Bashar al-Assad and calling him a reformer

    Failing to take decisive action in Syria before jihadists poured into the country

    Downplaying human rights, especially with China

    Failing to robustly support the Green Revolution

    Engagement of Iran and foot-dragging on sanctions, allowing Iran to reach the cusp of a nuclear weapons capability

    Announced “pivot” to Asia without carrying through

    Let's hope that the hapless Hillary ho keeps slipping in all the major polls and come primary elections, she loses in almost every state and the democratic nomination goes to either Bernie Sanders or to Martin O'Malley. The hapless Hillary ho can take her sorry ass back to Westchester County, NY.

    The list is long. I don't understand why people want the dynamic duo back in the WH:

    Cattle futures trading
    Travelgate
    Hillarycare secrecy
    Whitewater
    Filegate
    Vince Foster
    Rose Law firm billing records
    "pay for play" junkets
    Lincoln bedroom rental
    John Huang campaign violations
    Johny Chung contributions
    Monica
    Pardongate
    Bosnia sniper fire hoax
    email scandal

    Because liberals hear her say something that they like and they believe it, and nothing else matters to them.

    Here on RJ, all Hillary has to say is "gay rights" and that clinches the RJ liberal vote for her. Nevermind that she has taken tens of millions of dollars from governments and organizations that are anti-gay, some to the point of having policies that put people to death simply because they are gay.


    ^^^ THAT and the fact that they'll take a stand for anything conservatives are against... Like the way they want to be snuggle buddies with the leaders Islamic nations who routinely kill gays in their own nations but then butt fuck men men outside their homelands because in their ideology non Muslims aren't humans.

    That list is just first tier of Clitory Hinton's troubles.

    Look into Pardongate and you have to deal with her brothers who selling pardons. Anthony Rodham has taken his H-1B Visa for sale business off line since she she started running for Skank in Chief. But he's still in business doing that and trying to bilk investors for that non existent Jamaican gold mine even though the Jamaican legislature closed it down. He married Barbara Boxer's daughter and has been behind on child support for a decade.

    Look at Monica and there are the four other women Hillary as US first bitch had harassed by FBI, IRS and private detectives. Many have come forward to say she was the one who instigated all that.

    When you look at the people she was intending to give jobs to in Travelgate you'll find that all of them are either working for their Family Money Laundering Slush Fund Charity, her campaign OR is in the federal bureaucracy.

    Try to find any of the Chinese nationals (deported or not) who were caught up in the Huang or Chung investigations.

    Whitewater? 15 of their top friends and business associates were convicted of almost 50 crimes ... but Bill and Clitory weren't even indicted even though they'd been in it from day one....

    What ever happened to Carolyn Huber, the Hillary buddy from Arkansas who found her Rose Law Firm billing records hidden in the White House and turned them over to prosecutors?

    Look into any of the controversies they've been in and it turns into snake pit.

    Meanwhile, her most likely opponent, Jeb Bush, took five gos to work out his position on the invasion of Iraq. This does not bode particularly well for him, caught on the hop it seems, by the most predictable question ever.

    Disclaimer: This pollster is run by Dick Cheney's daughter and several other Republicans. If a generic Republican is only up one in what is basically an internal poll, that's not really a bad thing for Hillary.

    A generic Republican does not have the name recognition of Hillary - so it is a bad thing for her. But possibly good for Democrats if the trend continues and they look for someone not so blatantly dishonest.

    Generic almost always does better than an actual named candidate, that is a given in polling. The fact that the firm didn't release any actual match-up numbers is telling. Republicans have to run an actual person, not an imaginary character called Generic.

    I have heard various pollsters state early on that Hillary had an advantage because she was well-known versus the Republicans. To suggest the opposite now because she is not doing well does not ring true. If you have sources to back up your statement about generic almost always doing better, I'd be interested in reading that. Here's one view that supports what I have remembered:

    Hillary has been on the wrong side of just about every major policy debate & decision this country has made the past 15 years (namely, the ones we look back on and regret all these years later).

    Fuck the presumption of the presumptive nominee. AND FUCK NEOLIBERALISM! This Democrat is solidly behind Bernie Sanders.

    That is good, sound thinking on your part. Now try to educate all the extremist liberal hens on here to support Bernie Sanders rather than the hapless Hillary ho. icon_idea.gif

    Pick any of the 200 GOP candidates. The list of scandals and corruption is so long and deep the dog catcher should win.

    Of course you do. You know that none of the Republican candidates can come close to beating HRC, so you'd like nothing better than to see the Dems in-fighting over her and Sanders.

    Not what the current polls indicate, but your opinion is totally irrelevant.

    Haha. Even Southbeach has said several times he thinks she's going to win (and, for a change, he wasn't being sarcastic either).
