If Ms. Hillary Clinton runs for President in 2016, she is not only going to crush the Republican hopefuls nationally, but the Democratic former Secretary of State, Senator and First Lady might turn red state Georgia into a swing state according to a new Public Policy Polling poll that was published Tuesday.
According to the Public Policy Polling poll, there’s a decent chance Georgia will be a swing state if Clinton runs in 2016:
It looks like there’s a pretty decent chance it will be a swing state in the 2016 Presidential election if Hillary Clinton is the Democrat candidate. Clinton leads against 6 out of 7 potential Republican opponents we tested, trailing only Jeb Bush at 45/44. She leads Rand Paul (47/44), Mike Huckabee (48/45), and Herman Cain (48/45) all by 3, Chris Christie (46/41) by 5, and Ted Cruz (47/41) and Newt Gingrich (49/43) both by 6.
The pressure is on Republicans, who have been warned over and over again that they must find a way to fix their tarnished brand. As it is, they have only managed to double down on the very attitudes and policies that are reaping national fail.
Hillary Clinton could turn Georgia into a swing state even running against Georgians Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich. How many ways can Republicans spell fail before they realize that they can’t repackage the rotting meat in pretty enough tin foil to sell to the nation?
