Democrats Were Asked Who They Would Vote For If Hillary Clinton Entered The Race…

If Hillary Clinton entered the race for the Democratic nomination right now, how would she do?  Up until just recently, we haven’t known how voters would react if she joined the crowded field.

She certainly has better name recognition than anyone that is currently running, but a lot of Democrats seem to believe that her time has passed.  But has it?  There has been a lot of speculation in recent weeks that Clinton may decide to shock the world by running for president a third time, and this has prompted a couple of major polling organizations to ask voters about this.  I am going to share those results with you in this article, and I think that you might be very surprised by the numbers.

Let’s talk about the new poll from Harvard Harris first.  They asked Democrats who they would vote for if Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, and John Kerry all decided to enter the race, and Hillary Clinton was just one point behind Joe Biden

Those surveyed in the late October poll were asked, “Suppose Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, and John Kerry decides to enter the race, who would you support as a candidate for President?”

Joe Biden received the support of 19 percent of Democrat respondents. Clinton was in a close second with 18 percent. Elizabeth Warren came in third at 13 percent. John Kerry was at 8 percent, while Bloomberg was at 6.

So essentially Clinton would immediately become a co-frontrunner with Joe Biden in this scenario.

But that same poll found that Biden has a large lead without any of those additional candidates in the race…

With the race as it is today, the poll finds 33 percent of Democrats would support Biden in the primary, and Bernie Sanders in second place with 18 percent. Warren comes in third with 15 percent.

What this poll finds is that if Clinton were to enter the race, roughly one-half of Biden’s supporters would drop him for Hillary.

This new poll has got to be encouraging for Biden considering how much his campaign has been floundering lately, but he has also got to be desperately hoping that Clinton does not enter the race.

Another poll that was recently conducted for Fox News actually found that 27 percent of Democratic voters would support Clinton if she entered the race, and that would actually put her at the top of the pack…

Twenty-seven percent of Democratic primary voters would definitely vote for Clinton, including one-third of those backing Biden and one-quarter supporting Warren.

The numbers are rosier for former first lady Michelle Obama: 50 percent would definitely vote for her, including nearly 5 in 10 of Biden’s and 4 in 10 of Warren’s supporters.

Few, 6 percent, would definitely back former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Of course, Hillary Clinton and everyone else that is running wouldn’t have a prayer if Michelle Obama decided to run.  This is something that I warned about many months ago, and it is truer than ever today.

But Michelle Obama has repeatedly stated that she will never, ever run for president, and at this point, I am inclined to believe her.

So that makes Hillary Clinton the strongest potential candidate that is not yet in the field, and the possibility of winning has got to be awfully tempting to her.

For Hillary, this is the last and final chance to repair her deeply damaged legacy.

If her political career ends here, she will always be remembered as the woman that lost to Donald Trump.  She blew a very winnable election in 2016, and she opened the door for four (or eight) years of immense pain and anguish for those on the left.

But if she ran again and beat Trump in 2020, she would become “the comeback kid”, the first woman president and the woman that took down Donald Trump all rolled into one.

If you were Clinton, wouldn’t you be tempted by that opportunity?

Of course, if she lost to Trump a second time, she would be so deeply hated by the left that she would probably have to leave the country, and the only thing that she would be remembered for in the history books would be her two losses to Trump.

So it would definitely be a gamble.

And if she is going to make a move, she needs to do it soon, because the deadline to file for the New Hampshire primary is November 15th

While this quadrennial tradition in New Hampshire usually follows the script, there’s a chance for some curveballs this time around. Among the top questions: Will Hillary Clinton – or even Mike Bloomberg – startle the political world by making last-minute trips to the Granite State by Nov. 15, the final day to file?

Of course, it is always possible that she could try to enter at a later date, but it would be harder.

And because it is such a deep field, there is also the possibility that nobody will have enough delegates to win the nomination by the time the convention rolls around, and Clinton could emerge as a last-minute “compromise candidate”.  But such a scenario is extremely doubtful, and so if Clinton really wants this she needs to step forward sooner rather than later.

At one time it sure seemed like Clinton would not run, but in recent weeks she has seemed to leave the door open.  The following comes from Fox News

Clinton’s own comments and actions in recent weeks sparked the buzz, fueling stories that she could possibly enter her party’s nomination race at this late date amid complaints from some Democratic Party insiders who view the current field of contenders too weak or progressive to take on Republican President Trump next year.

But could you imagine what a Trump vs. Clinton rematch would do to this country?

We are already a deeply, deeply divided nation, and such a rematch would tear us apart even more.  I think that Emma Green summed up where we are at as a nation very well when she wrote the following

According to a growing body of political science research, Americans largely no longer feel a shared sense of national identity. Democrats and Republicans see their political opponents as enemies with totally incomprehensible beliefs and lifestyles. On impeachment, members of the two parties see things radically differently, not just because they have dissimilar political opinions, but because they have entirely divergent views on how to approach life. The vicious impeachment fight ahead may further exacerbate polarization in America, leaving Republicans, Democrats, and everyone in-between feeling even more suspicious of one another.

Even though I don’t agree with Emma Green’s politics, I think she really hit the nail on the head there.

The United States has never been more divided in my entire lifetime than it is today, and the divisions that exist are only going to intensify the deeper that we get into this election season.

    I leave comments on many if not most articles, but almost all of them either don’t appear for several days or don’t get posted at all. Like other readers. I have also noticed a big decline in the number of comments. Its appears to me we are being “moderated”, the commenters are getting too close to the truth. Voltaire said, “ To learn who rules over you simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize”.

  2. Son of patriot says:

    Either that or Missah Mac is converting the site from a blogsite to a “NEWS ONLY” site (breitbart, etc..), or puttin it up for sale. Maybe hafta ‘clean it up a bit’ for the new owners, too many ultra righters… Also, I have noticed that every few years or so, a completely new set of posters emerge and all the old ones disappear. Lots of grist for the rumor mill, but no answers from the boss himself. It is what it is I guess..

      SOP,
      I’ve been here a while and have noticed a lot of people dropping out over time.
      I don’t know if they are being purged, but the recent automatic moderation on all comments is irritating.
      BTW I post comments all the time on “Breitbart”, only been banned once, same for “the Hill”.
      Very rarely, am I moderated.
      Aloha

  3. Son of patriot says:

    After cruising down through the articles, I see almost none of the old crew, just new guys posting. I think that the old crew has been purged. The site owner has pushed the ‘refresh” button. Truth hurts, Mac probably wont even allow this obsevation to be posted.

  4. rellik says:

    “Democrats and Republicans see their political opponents as enemies with totally incomprehensible beliefs and lifestyles”
    Incomprehensible should be “incompatible”.
    Aloha

  5. Survived on my own says:

    Mac, any comments, answers , anything???

  6. Wojo says:

    Like myself, a lot of us are not posting much anymore due to the prying eyes of those we are not in lock step with.

  7. Clown World says:

    “… could you imagine what a Trump vs. Clinton rematch would do to this country?”

    Frazzled.rip vs. the Apollo fetishist are false alternatives, though.
