Hillary Clinton DEMOLISHING All Republican Presidential Candidates, Despite E-Mailghazi ‘Scandal’

A CNN/ORC International poll conducted March 13-15 reveals one unsurprising, yet important fact: No matter which candidate Republicans choose as their frontrunner in the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton’s victory is virtually assured.

Even when margin of error is considered, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, and all other Republican favorites fell well-short of a victory against Clinton in head-to-head polling.

Clinton’s position as frontrunner is almost assured, with 62 percent of Democrats favoring her over all other options — by a landslide. 62 percent of respondents said that they favor Clinton as their first choice, with Vice President Joe Biden coming in second at a mere 15 percent (42 percent listed Biden as their “second choice”).

Respondents were asked, assuming that Clinton is the Democratic frontrunner, to match various Republican candidates against the former Secretary of State. Rand Paul came the closest to besting Clinton, with a mere 43 percent saying they would vote for him in favor of Ms. Clinton, while the rest of the Republican candidates hovered around 40 percent.

Jeb Bush, the “primary” choice mentioned by respondents (at 16 percent) and likely Republican frontrunner, managed only 40 percent who would vote for him rather than Clinton. Chris Christie, Ben Carson, and Scott Walker also managed a paltry 40 percent when matched against Clinton. Marco Rubio polled at 41 percent against the former First Lady, and Mike Huckabee managed only 41 percent.

53 percent of overall respondents say they have a “favorable” opinion of Hillary Clinton, while only 31 percent could say the same for Jeb Bush. Every single Republican listed was rated “favorable” by fewer than 35 percent of respondents — with many barely managing 25 percent:

The numbers don’t lie: Americans are tiring of the right-wing agenda. With poll results like this, it’s unsurprising that the Right so voraciously attacks Clinton — even manufacturing controversy surrounding her personal e-mail account and Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi.

Since it is unlikely that Republicans can field a respectable candidate in 2016, we can only expect the desperate and nonsensical attacks to continued. These are, after all, the people who brought us Umbrellagate.
