The liberal writers enjoy telling their readers how terrible they think all of the Republican presidential candidates are. What they aren’t telling you is that their constant bashing of the ‘right’ candidates isn’t hurting those candidates in the polls. In fact, as the liberal writers continue to bash Trump, Carson, Rubio and anybody else they find threatening to their apparent-chosen candidate for 2016 – former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – the Republicans continue to poll stronger in match-ups with their apparent-only hope for the Oval office, according to The Hill on Sunday. No doubt, Americans are listening to the hard news stories which put Clinton’s integrity into question more than they are listening – and responding – to the leftists’ opinions.
The public obviously has a mind of its own and isn’t particularly responsive by the media rhetoric that practically has Hillary Clinton packed up and moved back into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with former President Bill Clinton. The fact is that a new poll says that there are now six Republican presidential candidates who would handily defeat Clinton if the election were held now. A recent poll conducted by Fox News with results released on Sunday shows that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio would defeat former first lady Hillary Clinton with the outcome being 50 percent for Rubio and 42 percent for Clinton. The hypothetical elections created by Fox also show that Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush, Ted Cruz, and even low-polling Chris Christie would defeat Clinton. The poll, incidentally, was taken after the Paris attacks which occurred a week ago Friday – suggesting that the turning of the tide towards conservative candidates currently has a lot to do with the voters’ discontent with President Barack Obama’s and the left’s response to the attacks and other related issues including the hot topic regarding Syria refugees. Pitted against Republican Carly Fiorina, Clinton would tie with both of the women receiving 42 percent.
As far as how popular the individual Republican candidates are at the moment, Trump still leads with an impressive 28 percent. This result is a very strong rebound for Trump who was nearly tied with Carson weeks ago. At this time, Carson comes in a distant second place with 18 percent. Cruz and Rubio are at 14 percent among Republican voters when the potential voters were asked which one of the Republican candidates is the best. None of the other Republican contenders got above 3 percent. The poll was conducted Nov. 16-19, 2015. It has a 3 percent margin of error for all registered voters who were polled regarding the Clinton match-ups and a 4.5 percent margin of error for Republican primary-specific voters, says Newsmax on Sunday.
