New poll shows Hillary losing respect and support as Trump gains
A new national poll from Rasmussen shows that Hillary Clinton is losing respect among the American electorate.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 22% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with Obama's statement that "there has never ever been any man or woman more qualified for this office than Hillary Clinton." Sixty-five percent (65%) disagree with the president's statement. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Two thirds of voters see through the propaganda line on offer from Obama, spinning her disastrous term as secretary of state and her do-nothing term in the Senate into phantom competence and purported qualification for the presidency. That landslide rejection comes despite concerted media support and lavish television ad campaigns on Hillary’s behalf.
Perhaps most startling:
… even Democrats aren't convinced: 42% of voters in Clinton's and Obama's party agree with the statement, but 36% do not, with another 21% who are not sure.
Fewer than half agree with Obama! One third of Democrats disagree with the Party Line, and they constitute a majority when combined with the not-sure respondents.
Meanwhile, Trump is moving up into a statistical tie with Hillary on qualifications:
When given the choice, 41% of all voters think Clinton is better qualified to be president, but just as many (40%) say that of Trump. A sizable 19% are undecided.
There is little question that Hillary has been damaged by the FBI investigation. With the party conventions coming up, the race is moving to its next stage close to a dead heat.
