Hillary Clinton is starting off her presidential campaign with huge leads over all her potential Republican opponents, according to a new CNN poll.

Of the eight Republicans tested, Florida senator Marco Rubio currently comes in closest against Clinton — but even he is trailing by a 14-point margin. Ted Cruz and Ben Carson both perform the worst, each trailing the Democrat by a whopping 24 points.

The trial heats are:

  • Clinton 56 percent, Jeb Bush 39 percent.
  • Clinton 58 percent, Chris Christie 39 percent.
  • Clinton 55 percent, Marco Rubio 41 percent.
  • Clinton 58 percent, Mike Huckabee 37 percent.
  • Clinton 58 percent, Rand Paul 39 percent.
  • Clinton 60 percent, Ben Carson 36 percent.
  • Clinton 59 percent, Scott Walker 37 percent.
  • Clinton 60 percent, Ted Cruz 36 percent.

The survey of American adults was conducted from April 16 to 19, and has a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.

    What type of results did you expect when you keep fielding a ‘B-Team?’ How can you expect someone to hand over the keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave when you can’t keep your own household (TP) in order and under control ?

    We have no confidence in your party{s} ability to operate this house considering your track record [2001-2008] and your current state of affairs.

    • hicusdicus

      I hope she gets elected. It would really be interesting to watch the death of a nation.

      • johninPCFL

        Yep, Iran and Syria are both on her hit list. Maybe you’ll get a twofer.

        • hicusdicus

          The foremost thing on her hit list are nut sacks.

          • stcroixcarp

            Yup! Just what this country needs…more nut sacks. You go Girl!

          • hicusdicus

            Are you a large mass of dirt that keeps water in check?

      • groversyck

        If the teatards win, it will be the death of our nation.

  • groversyck

    When she starts pounding them for their past stances and actions, the lead will grow.

    • Louis Allen

      Yep! When the Republican candidate, Gov. Scott Walker, starts pounding HER for her past stances and actions (and inactions !!), her (supposed) lead will just DISAPPEAR.

  • S.J. Jolly

    The survey doesn’t mean much, 18 moths before the election, and with right-wing oligarchs expected to spend 900 million on her opponents.

  • Louis Allen

    I really hope she is the Dems’ candidate.
    What a beating she would get from Gov. Scott Walker!

    • Independent1

      You just love to live in La La Land don’t you?? Maybe some day your brain will return to this world – right now it’s in NEVER NEVER LAND!!!

      • Louis Allen

        Dependent, you dumb bell and dingbat:
        1) TWO posts to try to counteract ONE of mine. I beat you, always, hands down!
        2) With characteristic leftist/liberal/socialist/”progressive” naiveté and gullibility, you cite “Salon”, the leftist/liberal/socialist/”progressive” TABLOID, as your “source” of “facts”. How sadly gullible all of you are…

        Now go back to your pigsty, dummy, and join Lenore there (she is waiting for you!)

        P.S. – Tell us about your “14 descendants” who “need to live in this country”?? Ha, ha, ha, haaa!!!

        • Independent1

          I can’t say it any better: YOU CAN FIX STUPID!!

          But I’ll also add: THERE’S A SUCKER BORN EVERYDAY!!!


          • Louis Allen

            Deppy, you dingbat: Quoting you, idiot: “YOU CAN FIX STUPID!!”
            (see your own post above !) What a dumbass.
            If it is true that you CAN “fix” stupid, ….. then not everything is lost for you and for your friend from the pigsty, Lenore Whiptaker ….
            But first, you have to re-take elementary school where you left it, at the third grade level ….
            LOL !! What a dumbass.
            P.S. – Again, tell us about your “17 descendants” who “need to live in this country”?? Ha, ha, ha, haaa!!!

    • Independent1

      Oh Yes! Talking about Scott Walker who was just boosted by a strong vote from the Koch Bros. If you’re a supporter of Walker you should find this article from Salon of special interest:

      From tragedy to farce: The GOP primary shows the rapid collapse of American democracy

    • Robert Eckert

      Do you even read? He is -22 percentage points to her.

  • Eleanore Whitaker

    The problem with men like Louis Allen? They are so deeply invested in thinking like “men” instead of like a “person” their testicles are swollen as badly as their “must lead” midget brains. You know what happens when brain swelling begins?

    The reality is that the US population according to the last 3 US censuses show that women lead in number by 2%+. The Louis Allens of the US hate hate hate anything that makes women equal. So why should it surprise anyone they want a pansy like Scott Walker who is a front man for the real back room presidents, Charles and David Koch?

    No billionaire sinks $900 million into the GOP without some major expectation of payback. Don’t expect scumbucket and slimeball men like Allen to ever admit this. They are wallowing in such mass corruption they’ve gotten away with that the only thing now that scares them silly is a woman in the White House.

    Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio…they were cut by the same Koch cookie cutter. Look at their faces. Can you tell which front man is which?

    That’s the Koch idea…load up the GOP presidential race with lookalike clones and you won’t have much choice if you are a Republican….Door No. 1? Door No. 2? Door No. 3? Won’t matter…It’s the hidden door behind these you need to look for. It’s a Koch back room to the White House.

      Don’t worry, dear, I’ll answer your new blabber above tonight.
      Be on the lookout ….
