Hillary Clinton got some very bad news this week when the latest Quinipiac poll numbers were released. The prestigious and well-regarded Q-poll spent the last week questioning voters throughout Colorado about their presidential preferences, and what they found was that most folks in Colorado think Hillary Clinton is an untrustworthy liar and they’d far prefer almost all of the GOP candidates as president!
This poll is huge news. Just 3 years ago President Obama defeated Mitt Romney in Colorado by more than 5% points. The fact that President Obama handily won Colorado just a few short years ago and Hillary Clinton cannot even get within single digits of most of the GOP candidates is a telling sign of just how bad the 2016 election cycle is going for the Clinton campaign.
“A chilly if not frigid reception for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her second quest for the White House,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “As winter moves into the Rockies, Coloradans say the Democratic front-runner would get bruised and beaten by all the top GOP opponents, and absolutely crushed by Sen. Marco Rubio and Dr. Ben Carson.”
Clinton trails all leading Republican contenders by margins of 11 percentage points or more, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll finds.
Colorado voters back any leading Republican contender over Clinton by wide margins:
- Rubio over Clinton 52 – 36 percent;
- Carson leads Clinton 52 – 38 percent;
- Cruz tops Clinton 51 – 38 percent;
- Trump beats Clinton 48 – 37 percent.
Colorado voters say 67 – 30 percent that Clinton is NOT honest and trustworthy.
All of this info follows closely on the heels of Q-poll’s other recent discovery that Clinton was losing to almost all of the GOP candidates nationally as well.
Taken all together this must be disheartening news for the Democrat Party.
