Clinton trails top Republicans in battleground states

C

I just talked about this story on air. When the best Hillary Clinton has is that the Republicans have lower name ID, that’s not a good thing.

Hillary Clinton trails three top Republican presidential candidates in head-to-head matchups in Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, a new survey shows.

The latest Quinnipiac University swing state polling released Wednesday shows the Democratic frontrunner trailing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in each of those states.

The biggest loser, the polls found, is Donald Trump, who has surged to the front of a crowded Republican primary field nationally but is viewed unfavorably, by almost a 2-to-1 margin, by voters in those states.

The results offered more indications that Clinton has a problem: Voters say they don’t trust her.

Clinton has already said her election plan is a base turnout election. She has no plans to woo others to her campaign. She wants to fire up her base. That means more “war on X” rhetoric and trying to slime the other side. Hillary will not a campaign based on hope and change. Instead, it’ll be “you think I’m bad? Look at the other guy’s cankles.”

Don’t expect optimism from Hillary 2016.
