No Matter How The Media Tries To Spin It, Hillary Clinton Leads Every GOP Candidate

Hillary Clinton
A Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey released on June 16, 2015, shows Hillary Clinton still leads the presidential race in every conceivable match-up. The national survey of 1,129 registered voters, including 492 probable Republican primary voters, and 471 probable Democratic primary voters, found Clinton dominating the Democratic field, and leading all Republicans in general election head to head contests.

The PPP national survey found Clinton still holds a commanding 65 percent to 9 percent lead over Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary field. Sanders has made inroads in recent polls in New Hampshire, but Clinton is still dominating the national race. She polls well with every significant Democratic constituency, but she is running especially strong with African-American voters. 83 percent of black voters favor Clinton over any of her Democratic opponents.

The PPP poll also finds that Clinton is currently the strongest Democratic general election candidate. She holds a modest lead over every Republican presidential hopeful. Florida Senator Marco Rubio comes closest to Clinton, trailing just 46-43 percent. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who barely leads the GOP field, trails Clinton by a similar 46-42 margin. Clinton also leads both Jeb Bush and Chris Christie 45-41. Her lead over the remaining GOP candidates — Mike Huckabee, Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, and Rand Paul –ranges from between 5 and 7 percentage points.

When matched up against GOP front-runner Scott Walker, Clinton fares 12 to 16 percentage points better than any of her Democratic rivals. Clinton’s 4 point lead over Walker contrasts with Sanders, O’Malley, Webb, and Chafee all trailing Walker by 8 to 12 percentage points.

With the presidential election still well over a year away, the dynamics of the race could change dramatically between now and November 2016. However, Hillary Clinton’s advantage has proven resilient over months of polling. There is no question that she has a strong base of support nationally, which makes her a formidable candidate in both the Democratic primary and the general election field. She remains the odds on favorite to become the 45th President of the United States.

  1. Whoa! Hillary is Beating Everyone in Florida (Even the Floridians)

    Florida is the bluest Swing State so far as Secretary Clinton gets 47 percent to U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio’s 44 percent. She gets 46 percent to former Gov. Jeb Bush’s 42 percent. In other matchups:
    Clinton tops New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie 46 – 35 percent;
    She beats U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky 46 – 39 percent;
    She tops former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee 49 – 38 percent;
    Clinton thumps Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker 48 – 38 percent;
    She buries U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas 48 – 37 percent;
    Clinton bashes Ohio Gov. John Kasich 48 – 35 percent.

  2. Hillary has taken it on the chin from the entire right and from the extreme, fringe left for decades. Each time, she emerges stronger, more resilient, more ready to battle for the vulnerable: women, children, the poor, the middle class.

    What are her critics so scared of? They know that as the first woman President, she represents real change. The status quo would have to change, because a strong, successful, accomplished progressive woman cannot be controlled.

    Hillary brokered the Israel-Hamas ceasefire that prevented a 2nd Gaza War and saw peace during her tenure. She was responsible for making women’s and gay rights official US international humanitarian policy. She created the State Dept initiatives to 1) include energy independence in the US national security portfolio and to 2) combat digital terrorism, recognizing Bush admin neglect. She presciently warned Republicans that cutting funds for embassy security would put diplomats at risk.

    She is the real deal.

  3. I’ve always found it difficult to differentiate between the standard Conservative Hive-Mind, Ditto-heads, Sock-puppets, and the now increasingly desperate Republican Spin-Doctors.

  4. BOTH Hillary and Bernie are viable candidates, just for whomever in the primary and then vote for the DEMOCRATIC nominee in November ’16.

    We as liberals do NOT need to stoop to the GOP level and start mud slinging.
    They are bickering with each other with how many will be at the New Hampshire debate, just sit back and watch that circus.

  5. Hillary is beating every Republican in the category of most complicit politician with the corporate oligarchy model. She also proved last weekend at Roosevelt Island that she can list a lot of problems with out commensurate solutions.

  6. I don’t care who the Democrat is. They are getting my and my wife’s vote. For the rest of our lives. It is a sheer mystery why anyone votes for any rethuglicant.

  7. I think the Banning Button is gonna be used alot around here. And it should be. This is a PROGRESSIVE site. I know anyone should be able to say what’s on their mind. But there are limits.

  8. I really love and support Bernie Sanders on his views, and Elizabeth Warren. With that said, I will not waste a vote on them in the primary. Why? Simple, we laugh and make fun of the morons at Fox, but we need not to be morons our own selves. no Socialist candidate like Bernie or hard left Liberal like Liz could win in a general election. Do I thing the majority is moving left? Yes, but not that far left just yet. The logical person in me tells me that my best bet for a Democrat to win is at this point in time to stand by Hillary and hope that Bernie and Liz along with Gilibrand, Van Hollen, Pelosi, Hoyer,Grayson, Israel, and the ones I have left out can make a difference in congress, as they have to put the bills up so Hillary can sign them.
