HAMDEN, Conn., Feb. 8 (UPI) — Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s popularity is higher than that of President Barack Obama, the Quinnipiac University National Poll said.

In findings released Friday, Clinton’s 61 percent favorability rating, with 34 percent unfavorability, surpasses Obama’s 51 percent favorability rating and 46 percent unfavorability.

The poll noted Clinton’s favorability is higher than other national figures including Vice President Joe Biden; House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio; U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.; and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.

Peter A. Brown, Quinnipiac polling assistant director, called Clinton “easily the most popular actor on the American political stage today. The difference in favorability ratings for the two leaders (Clinton and Obama) lies in Clinton’s ability to win thumbs up from many more independent voters and Republicans than does the president.”

The survey was taken Jan. 30-Feb. 4 of 1,772 registered voters, by live interviewers on cellphones and land lines. It has a margin of error of 2.3 percentage points.

She would get my vote anything would be better than Obama running our country. Even Bozo the clown

If I had to choose between Obama and Hillary I would take Hillary hands down any day.

It is the year of the snake.

When they throw these numbers around they MUST mean 61% of Democrats favor her and 51% favor Osama Obama. Obviously another weighted poll.

Plus if happy likes it, it must not be true. Happyguy, is your name Gail? Just curious.

why the attack. Are you still upset with me because I call you out on you trying to pass your opinions as facts? I remember how you hate facts. That’s probably it. Is your name A. Hole or is it D. Head? You sound like you could be either.

After testimony on bengazi where is came out that the 7 hours they were under attack both obama and clinton were AWOL. Right now I don’t believe 90% of whar any news or polls say.

Hillary in 2016


I would think that almost anyone’s favorability rating would be higher than Obama’s. I really can’t believe that his is at 51%, must be a bunch of mindless trolls out there. Does anyone really care about this article anyway, I mean, come on, Hillary? Who cares.

Must be rough knowing that the majority of Americans don’t share your views.
