Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is leading all Republicans candidates in the latest national poll, even though she has trust and honesty negatives. The poll finds that there is no frontrunner in the GOP presidential slate, with “no candidate about 10 percent and 20 percent undecided,” a Quinnipiac University national poll found.
Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker are all polling 10 percent. Rand Paul has 7 percent, Ted Cruz has 6 percent, Donald Trump with 6 percent, Chris Christie at 4 percent, Carly Fiorina and John Kasich at 2 percent each. By the way, the poll finds Donald Trump tops the “no way” list with 21 percent of Republicans saying hell no to his presidential ambitions. Bush follows with 17 percent and Christie at 15 percent.
Hillary Clinton is trouncing the Democratic nominees. Bernie Sanders trails with 15 percent, Vice President Joe Biden at 9 percent. Martin O’Malley was not even mentioned in the poll.
Hillary Clinton vs. Republican presidential candidates:
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.
American voters say 53 – 39 percent that Clinton is not honest and trustworthy, but say 60 – 37 percent that she has strong leadership qualities. Voters are divided 48 – 47 percent over whether Clinton cares about their needs and problems.
This will be an interesting race to say the least. At this juncture, judging from the lack of a frontrunner, the Republican Party is in disarray. Hillary Clinton, with all her baggage, is still trouncing the GOP candidates. That’s a testament to the how little faith American voters have in the political process.
On a personal note, I have voted for Republican candidates in the, but there is no way on earth I am casting a vote for someone like self-righteous hypocrite Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz and Rick Santorum. Should Jeb Bush prevail, he will not get my vote either. Too many Bushes in the White House with no record of accomplishment to show for their terms in office. The mess with Iraq started with George H.W. Bush and his son, George W. Bush made an even bigger mess, giving us ISIS or ISIL.
