    Fifty percent of adults would not vote for Clinton

    By Kelly McCormack
    March 27, 2007

    Half of voting-age Americans say they would not vote for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) if she became the Democratic nominee for president in 2008, according to a Harris Interactive poll released Tuesday.

    More than one in five Democrats that participated in the survey said they would not vote for Clinton. Overall, 36 percent say they would vote for the former first lady and 11 percent are unsure of their top choice.

    Forty-eight percent of Independent voters also said that they would choose another candidate over Clinton, the poll, which surveyed 2,223 potential voters, states.

    Fifty-six percent of men said that they would not vote for Clinton, while 45 percent of women said that she would not be their pick. In addition, 69 percent of those 62 and older said that they would not vote for Clinton.

    Nearly half of the respondents said that they dislike Clinton’s political opinions and Clinton as a person. Fifty-two percent of people also said that “she does not appear to connect with people on a personal level.”

    I agree, she does not do well in this area. She will either learn to do so, her campaign will adapt, or she will find herself running behind someone else. Of course the election is still a long way off and a lot of unexpected things are likely to happen, so in the end, who knows!

    Her two biggest problems, IMO:

    Her last name is Clinton.

    Her first name is not Bill.

    She can not live up to the Clinton legacy. She is not suave.

    "...69 percent of those 62 and older said that they would not vote for Clinton."

    Those closest to her age like her the least.

    It will be interesting to compare these results to others, like Gallop or Zogby. As an online interactive poll there is no way to guarantee a random cross section of people from many key demographics. They also do not have a margin of error for their surveys which can be somewhat suspect. At any rate the results could be dead on, but I guess I will have to wait to see.

    Edited to say:

    Oh my goodness...I just noticed the last 3 numbers on my post counter.

    I have the mark of the beast. (The 2 in front means I'm twice as bad.)
