When asked about potential 2016 candidates, a new George Washington University poll shows that 51 percent said they wouldn’t consider voting for Hillary Clinton, with 44 percent saying they felt “strongly” about their position. Hillary’s over-all favorability rating also remains low at 49 percent with 39 percent seeing her as “strongly unfavorable.”
The poll also shows Americans are split as to which party would do a better job handling key issues, giving Democrats the advantage on jobs, 49 percent to 42 percent, and healthcare, 52 percent to 39 percent. Republicans on the other hand have an edge on the economy at 49 percent to 44 percent, taxes at 47 percent to 44 percent and foreign policy — 50 percent to 40 percent.
And the news isn’t getting any better as a lawsuit demanding access to Hillary’s private email server got new life after a judge’s recent decision. Federal Judge Reggie Walton decided to reopen the suit, brought by Judicial Watch, following agreement by the State Department that the documents kept on her private server should be turned over.
“It points to the fraud by this administration and Mrs. Clinton,” Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said.
The court originally dismissed the case stating the documents didn’t exist.
Adding to the mounting trouble over her email server, recent revelations about the Clinton Foundation’s relationships with shady regimes are making less-headline in the national media. This as Bill was in Morocco for a Clinton Global Initiative conference funded by a government-owned phosphate conglomerate, last week.
It was during the panel session moderated by telecom billionaire Mo Ibrahim, who asked Bill why the Clinton Foundation hasn’t pushed back harder against allegations by answering simple questions like “What is this money for?” and “What have you done with it?”
“I just work here,” Clinton said. “I don’t know.”
It’s a question he dares not answer as the latest Rasmussen national telephone survey finds that 63 percent of voters think it’s likely some actions Hillary took as secretary of State were influenced by donations made to the Clinton Foundation. This includes 42 percent who say it’s ‘very likely.
This follows Bill’s claims that the foundation failure to disclose 1,100 foreign donations is the fault of the accountant who prepared the nonprofit’s taxes The foundation didn’t list any contributions from governments in a series of tax forms, instead rolling the sum into overall revenue, something Bill characterized as “an innocent mistake.”
And it’s been recently learned that Hillary’s State Department approved $50 million in Bill’s speeches during her tenure when that so-call ‘innocent mistake,’ occurred.
