In response to andiejen's comment:
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Monday gave two television networks less than two weeks to pull major projects on the life of Hillary Clinton.
If they don't, Priebus says he will work to stop both NBC and CNN from airing Republican primary debates before the 2016 election.
He said the networks' programming was aimed at "promoting" Clinton, who is seen as the likely Democratic front-runner for the election
Priebus sent letters to Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, and Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, protesting at least two productions which he says promote Clinton.
"Afraid" of Hillary?
I`m not so sure "afraid" is the right word................but, maybe they don`t have to bother.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the candidate voters would least likely want to win the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, a new poll has found.
According to the Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 likely voters, 27 percent say they would least like to see her win the Democratic nomination, compared to 24 percent who say the same about Vice President Joe Biden.
At the same time, the August 1-2 survey showed that the former First Lady leads the pack of possible Democratic presidential contenders. Sixty-three percent of Democrats would choose Clinton if the 2016 Democratic presidential primary were held in their state today. Vice President Joe Biden, by contrast, comes a distant second at 12 percent.
Among all likely voters, Clinton would also be the top vote winner with 39 percent support.
Clinton was also the favorite in August 2005, three years before the 2008 Democratic National Convention, Rasmussen points out, but she subsequently lost in the primary to Barack Obama.
The survey also looked at the levels of support for other possible Democratic contenders. Seven percent of voters would choose Biden or New York Governor Andrew Cuomo if the 2016 Democratic presidential primary were held in their state today. Three percent would choose Newark Mayor Cory Booker. Just two percent each would support Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
Meanwhile, 20 percent of those questioned would choose some other candidate while another 20 percent are still undecided.[/QUOTE]
I find both your statistics and your conclusion confusing.
Almost all of your stats are very much in Hillary's favor. Suppory for other likely Democrat contenders is almost nonexistent.
That a high percentage of those polled are undecided is par for the course this early on.
Btw, I know you feel Rasmussen is not a right leaning poll. But, just for laughs, say it is. Do you then think it would have its finger on where likely Democrat voters are leaning?
