Poll: Public is highly suspicious of Hillary’s 33,000 deleted emails

A new Rasmussen poll reveals that the public is largely persuaded that Hillary was covering up something sinister when she deleted her emails, and that the media/Democrat hyperventilating over Donald Trump being treasonous in asking Russia to reveal the emails if they have them is off-kilter.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone and online survey finds that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters think it is likely Clinton and her staff deleted those e-mails to hide something incriminating from the FBI, with 45% who say it’s Very Likely. Thirty-five percent (35%) say it’s unlikely they were trying to hide anything, but that includes only 15% who say it’s Not At All Likely. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

So the hard core Hillary constituency, believing she would never do something untoward, is only 15%. And only just over a third of the public is in her camp on the issue. That leaves almost two thirds of the voting public ready to consider the possibilities – bribery, treason, and scandalous yoga positions among other potential Hillary secrets.

As for Trump’s “treason”:

Clinton’s Republican rival Donald Trump suggested last week that if the Russians have the missing 30,000 Clinton e-mails, they should turn them over to the FBI. Just 34% of voters feel it would be bad for U.S.-Russia relations if the Russians had obtained Clinton’s e-mail through cyberspying and now turned them over to the FBI. Twenty-seven percent (27%) say such a move would be good for relations between the two countries, while 26% think it would have no impact. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure.

There is the same third-plus who buy the pro-Hillary, anti-Trump narrative.

The basic configuration of the battlefield between Clinton and Trump favors Trump. This is why the media are spending much of the time attacking Trump “gaffes” – real and imagined. Play offense, no matter how trivial or tortured the logic for demonizing the Donald.
