Hillary Would Lose To Huckabee?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Hillary, Polls

Not only that, a new poll says she’d lose to the other top 4 Republicans: Giuliani, Thompson, Romney and McCain.

Ouch.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton trails five top Republican presidential contenders in general election match-ups, a drop in support from this summer, according to a poll released on Monday.

Clinton’s top Democratic rivals, Barack Obama and John Edwards, still lead Republicans in hypothetical match-ups ahead of the November 4, 2008, presidential election, the survey by Zogby Interactive showed. [...]

Some Democrats have expressed concerns about the former first lady’s electability in a race against Republicans. The survey showed Clinton not performing as well as Obama and Edwards among independents and younger voters, pollster John Zogby said.

“The questions about her electability have always been there, but as we get close this suggests that is a problem,” Zogby said.

I guess her negatives are catching up with her.

UPDATE:
A new Gallup poll paints a rosier picture for Hillary.

Clinton — the dominant front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination — would appear to have at least a slight advantage over any Republican candidate among registered voters if the election were held today. She has a five-point edge over Giuliani (49% to 44%) and a six-point edge over McCain (50% to 44%), but neither lead is statistically significant. Clinton runs much more strongly against the lesser-known Thompson (53% to 40%) and Romney (54% to 38%).

One thing I will point out is that the Zogby poll was online and had 9,355 people voting in it who had registered to take online polls. This Gallup poll was taken from 897 registered voters.

    “I guess her negatives are catching up with her.”

    Her negatives have nothing to do with her being a woman, it has everything to do with her transparent lust for power. She makes a lot of assumptions which tends to turn people off but the most unappealing thing about her is she seems to care everything about what people want to hear and nothing of what people don’t want to hear. She’s got her finger on the populist pulse, always careful to mold her image to what she believe the people want.

    It doesn’t help her cause that her husband, a supposed “liberal” (liberal my ass!) worked with Bush Sr. to enact NAFTA and the fact that Clinton was just another corrupt politician but happened to be a Democrat. We now know that it doesn’t matter which of these parties control the government, you can expect corruption run amok. The only difference is what corporations will benefit, weapons manufacturers or big agriculture.

    This bitch is bought off just like Bush was before he was even sworn in. The wheels were turning and the money machine churning. Bush and friends are going to be benefiting from his presidency for the next decade and beyond. I guess it’s time for the Democrats to throw some of that pork the other direction now. I mean, we can’t have half of the nation’s corrupt corporations going hungry now can we?
