She’s a criminal, everyone knows she’s a criminal, yet a lot of them would still vote for her. If only we had a viable alternative to this felon.
A majority of Americans disapproves of the FBI‘s recommendation not to charge Hillary Clintonwith a crime over her handling of email while secretary of state, and a similar number in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say the issue leaves them worried about how she’d handle her responsibilities as president if elected.
Most also say the email controversy won’t affect their vote choice in the presidential election. But more say it leaves them less rather than more likely to support Clinton, 28 percent vs. 10 percent.
Reaction to the decision is highly political, with partisanship factoring heavily in people’s views. Yet Democrats don’t back Clinton up on the issue nearly as much as Republicans criticize her, and independents side more with Republicans.
Overall, 56 percent disapprove of FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation not to charge Clinton, while just 35 percent approve. Similarly, 57 percent say the incident makes them worried about how Clinton might act as president if she were elected, with most very worried about it. Just 39 percent feel the issue isn’t related to how she’d perform as president.
If only Democrats had enough integrity to dump this hag in favor of someone not under criminal investigation.
Questions about Clinton’s character have been a key weakness of her candidacy. Americans by broad margins have said they don’t regard her as honest and trustworthy. She trailedBernie Sanders on this attribute by about 20 percentage points consistently in the Democratic primaries. And in some polls she’s trailed Donald Trump on it as well, albeit more closely.
Someone so shady and untrustworthy should never be allowed near the White House.
