Hillary Clinton will win the presidency in a landslide

In the fall of 2007 during her first run for president, Hillary Clinton was often asked why her name was so polarizing in politics. She had a good answer: Unlike the other Democrats competing with her for the nod, she had a record of withstanding Republican attacks that went back for decades. It had taken its toll on her, of course, but the fact that she was still standing was a testament to her electability.

Today, her campaign is barely a week old, and she’s already endured years of attacks since she emerged as the overwhelming favorite for the nomination in 2016. But she’s not just standing—she’s thriving. Every indicator, from polling to economic fundamentals to demographical analysis, points to her being in the driver’s seat for 2016.

A batch of polling from CNN and Opinion Research point to a landslide if the election were held today, with Clinton’s strongest potential opponent, Marco Rubio, trailing her by 14 points at 55-41. Her edges against the rest of the GOP field are even more lopsided, with Clinton even mustering a 24-point edge over Senator Ted Cruz.

Other polling shows a much more modest advantage for Clinton. Fox News projects much tighter margins, with Clinton only besting her nearest rival, Rand Paul, by 3 points. Quinnipiac also shows some close numbers, with Marco Rubio even coming within 2 points of Clinton.

Clinton is also doing well in battleground states. The 12-point lead that the vaunted Marquette Law School poll found for her over Governor Scott Walker in Wisconsin has to make her campaign feel good right now. Walker is the only GOP candidate not saddled by enormous political baggage and a moribund state economy (New Jersey’s Chris Christie) who has shown he can win repeatedly in a blue state.

What makes these numbers (near-universal, if sometimes modest, leads) so promising for Clinton is that they’re coming up at a time when she’s facing more scrutiny than she has in years. Of course, the media glare and Republican grilling will get worse for her—much worse—as the election season goes on. But now that she’s an announced candidate, she’s shed a lot of the goodwill that voters, including some Republicans, granted her when she spent four years as an almost non-partisan figure at the State Department. She’s been hounded about her email server. And within the last few days (too late to be reflected in these polls) she’s faced questions about donations and speaking fees at the Clinton Foundation.

But her numbers are still resilient, even as every Republican in the field targets her.

“Hillary Clinton eats scandals for breakfast,” Bill Maher gloated last week. He was noting that her numbers are holding steady even as the Republican attack machine revs up. And while I wouldn’t be so sanguine about the potential dangers these stories pose to the Clinton campaign, there’s definitely something to his observation. A lot of pundits are speculating about something called Clinton fatigue, but they’ve only identified two-thirds of the phenomenon. The real issue is fatigue over Clinton pseudo-scandals.

Ever since the early 1990s, when congressional Republicans and talk radio began hounding the Clintons over a real estate deal they made in Arkansas (from which they lost money), Clinton pseudo-scandals have been almost a constant in U.S. politics. Republican senator and 1996 GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole called for an investigation of Clinton over his old, unprofitable real estate deal on the same day the President was mourning the loss of his mother. GOP congressman Dan Burton, in a deranged effort to prove that the death of one of Clinton’s aides couldn’t possibly have been a suicide, summoned a handful of reporters to his ranch, and in his quest for truth proceeded to shoot a watermelon. And the special prosecutor Ken Starr, appointed by the conservative Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist to investigate Clinton’s alleged scandals, had a curious habit of frequently announcing that his investigation was reaching “a critical stage” just as elections were looming. The malevolent prosecutor enjoyed watching the Clintons squirm, and even ordered that blood be drawn from the President for DNA testing when a cotton swab to the cheek could have obtained the same evidence. But after years of hunting the President of the United States, that vial of blood was all he got.

Meanwhile, the economy was booming, with 22 million jobs created in the Clinton years while the stock market tripled in value. But no matter how good things got—no matter how far the poverty rate plunged, no matter how seriously Clinton’s budgets whittled away at the deficit, and no matter how eye-popping private sector earnings became—the rage against the Clintons never seemed to diminish. If anything, it got worse, culminating with an impeachment at a time when Bill Clinton’s approval ratings were surging to the 70 percent mark. In the 1998 midterm elections that were dominated by impeachment promises, Republicans lost seats.

Breathless Republican demands for investigations into the Clintons’ nefarious dealings has become something like an unofficial law of American politics. Their criticisms and accusations barely register because they’re so commonplace, expected, and routine.

Now they’re beginning their barrage again. Maybe they’ll find something this time, nestled in one of the Clinton Foundation’s thousands of donations and dealings, a transaction gone wrong that can really haunt the former Secretary of State. But I wouldn’t put money on it. Republicans will throw everything at her—they always do—but unless it really is a bombshell, it just won’t register with the voters Clinton can’t afford to lose in November. Sure, it’ll send millions of people in some circles into a tizzy—assuming those people can take a break from calling for yet another investigation into Benghazi. But they aren’t the audience Clinton needs to win over, and they’ve never been.

Pundits are talking about Clinton fatigue—but none other than Fox News is out with evidence that’s not an issue. By a 52-39 margin, voters they polled believe that being associated with the Clinton dynasty is a positive. But another dynasty isn’t faring so well: Voters say by a 58-34 margin that the Bush name hurts Jeb Bush.

People remember the Clinton boom, and even more people remember the financial crisis that began under George W. Bush that America’s still recovering from. For a national psyche that first and foremost wants the slow recovery to really accelerate, the Clinton brand seems pretty appealing.

No, Clinton fatigue isn’t a real thing—it’s the product of over-thinking and speculation by analysts. It’s crystallized into conventional wisdom, but just doesn’t factor in regular Americans’ perceptions. Unless of course, Fox News is massaging poll numbers on behalf of Hillary, in which case these Clinton cover-ups sure go deeper than anyone thought!

What Americans are tired of by 2016 won’t be Hillary Clinton, but the conspiracy theories and crackpot rumors that the far right throws at her. Expect more calls to investigate Benghazi, even after the Republican-led House committee failed to find evidence of wrongdoing in their sixth and most recent investigation. They’ll throw everything they can at her, especially if the economy continues to improve.

The bad news is, the outrage-peddlers are a fixture in American politics, and they’ll be out in full force until November, and sadly after. The very good news is, they’re no better at taking Clinton down than they were twenty years ago.

    FUndations” is a blog post at http://www.libertytakeseffort.com that links the
    specific Clinton Cash issue to a broader concern about the commercialization
    and selling of the Office of the President.http://www.libertytakeseffort.com

    The Clintons and Bushes, historically entrenched
    in a system run by moneyed elites, are unlikely to confront it.
    NoBushClinton2016 is a rallying cry for action to end the Bush and Clinton
    dynasties and take a new direction in national leadership. The campaign began
    with the recent NoBushClinton2016 post on the http://www.libertytakeseffort.com blog. It has expanded to include the sale of stickers

    Memo to Boot Lick Dahl:

    Keep dreaming that dream, Poindexter!

    Every day Hillary breathes, she is more of a liability to the Obama White House and the DNC. And increases her chances of being the recipient of an incapacitating “accident” delivered by obedient minions of Valerie Jarrett, Obama. Or Bill.

    Hillary is expendable. Her “Cash Cow, Slush Fund” Family Foundation and its corruption pointing to the White House. Are not!

    I hope one day soon we reach a point where the political climate is shaped by, at least, a majority of somewhat informed, relatively intelligent voters instead of two mobs arguing against each other. Both sides are capable of serving this country well but unfortunately we always seem to end up with the snake oil salesman that has the money for the loudest voice. It’s bound to change one way or another as we humans eventually learn from our mistakes, sometimes painfully… I hope in my lifetime we’ll be able to see more reasonable politicians elected to start working on fixing problems instead of causing them.

  5. Isn’t this the same Hillary Clinton who withstood decades of Republican attacks in 2008 and was a sure winner of the Democratic nomination — until an unknown new Senator from Illinois pushed her out of the coronation line? Maybe more than surviving repeated attacks for corrupt behavior is required to win elections (outside of New York, anyway).

    Hillary got caught on tape laughing about getting a child rapist off the hook in court. Bill made more than 30 visits to jeffry epstein’s child sex slavery island. Anyone promoting Clintons at this point can only have one motive: They themselves are some sort of sick pedophile hoping to have an ally in a position of power when they get caught diddling a kid. So, William Dahl… exactly what sort of sick pedo are you?

    You obviously are a lib kool aid drinker. She took bribes for money, she slept while our boys in Benghazi were murdered and dragged through the streets, she illegally deleted State Department e-mails from her illegal private server. This bitch deserves to be in jail…as would anyone else if they committed those crimes. That you celebrate her as thriving shows what a sick tribal lemming you are. No matter what happens you huddle around your tribe and protect them. Thank God America is waking up and your polls (by more lib kool aid drinkers) will not convince anyone. No amount of lies you spew will change the fact that she is yesterdays news, old and worn out. America is electing a new generation of leaders and Hillary is done. Bye bye Clintons…

            You say you are no Paul, but clearly you are an advocate of the rantings of Ron Paul and his monetary “policy”.

            Paul’s problems, and therefore yours, begin with the simple fact that modern society, at least those outside of Communist dogma, have far outgrown the ability of any material asset such as gold or diamonds, etc. to support the world’s economy, or to “make anything of value” as you put.

            And just what does all this have to do with the subject matter of the article on Hillary Clinton and the presidential election? Nothing, right, other than to show you are an adherent of the far right.

He was a Democrat too, if I remember right.

Yep, I’m not a 70~ something year old crazy brainwashed ultra-far right winger, I sure can’t compete with your type when it comes to slinging pure hatred and venom. And you know what? I wouldn’t even be interested- I evolved past thinking acting like that proves me right around the same time my age hit the double digits.

          🙂

          *: BTW, the answer to that question is because, since you base your entire life around being team 1 and hating team 2, you act like a crazy, sad, desperate person on the internet because you are in fact that desperate to find your alternative, polar opposite who justifies your pure, burning hatred of all things that don’t agree with you in any slight way.

          The guy you’re looking for doesn’t exist. I’m just a guy that brought up an argument you can’t address or refute, I never said a word about being liberal or that all liberals are right or that all conservatives are wrong- and I won’t. Because that’s an absolutely braindead thing to do. I’ll leave all that good stuff to you, though.

            Being a coward garbage-town who can only talk trash at total strangers when they disprove him on the internet/bring up things that make you uncomfortable. Yep, I’m not a 70~ something year old crazy brainwashed ultra-far right winger, I sure can’t compete with your type when it comes to slinging pure hatred and venom. And you know what? I wouldn’t even be interested- I evolved past thinking acting like that proves me right around the same time my age hit the double digits.

            🙂

            *: BTW, the answer to that question is because, since you base your entire life around being team 1 and hating team 2, you act like a crazy, sad, desperate person on the internet because you are in fact that desperate to find your alternative, polar opposite who justifies your pure, burning hatred of all things that don’t agree with you in any slight way. Because only he would justify your crazy existence, and you’re that deeply brainwashed that you can’t comprehend anyone less radical than you, or even just not that interested in washington partisan team choosing than you. I might not even live in the US. Ever think of that? No, you didn’t.

            See? I’m better than you at pyschology, too.

            The guy you’re looking for doesn’t exist. I’m just a guy that brought up an argument you can’t address or refute, I never said a word about being liberal or that all liberals are right or that all conservatives are wrong- and I won’t. Because that’s an absolutely braindead thing to do. I’ll leave all that good stuff to you, though.

            Boy.

            🙂

      And Tea-Party Republicans are great builders. When do we start to laugh. These protest’s are not caused be Liberals. They are cause from what is perceived by the black race as a threat to there race. When the Republicans start to realize that you can not keep hammering at the blacks as the bad guys. and the Gays, and the lesbians and the poor and the single mother and the working men and women and women and Labor and Muslims and immigrants . What do you have left. That is why Hillary will win. The stupid Republicans can’t get the votes from just middle age white people and rich white people.

          NO votes win a election. People run a economy. You read the groups in named. Same thing happened the last election. Mitt comes out with a stupid remark and it was just enough to cost him the election. The Fed. with the help of Liz Warren will take care of the economy.

            In your dreams.Mitt and Warren have no say and neither does a president.The last one who did is DEAD!PS,the fed destroyed the economy and that’s why your dollar is worth 4 cents compared to 1913 when a dollar was worth a dollar.You must be stuck on stupid or retarded.

          • russellmeans says:

            Mitt yes I agree. The Fed big time. Warren not as much, but she is on the move UP.

            Maybe you did but I know the math facts and they don’t lie.

          • nman says:

            I suppose you won’t share these “math facts” with the rest of us?

          Well, one thing we do know is the GOP (Grossly Obstructive Party) are NOT the ones you want to run the economy.

          Yes, you are “very well set” in a world based on the USD, not on Ron Paul’s solution. BTW, I too am “very well set” and I am proud to say that I did work in the world of investments but NOT for Wall Street. Those guys are nothing but crooks.

            LOL,I don’t deal in US currency and yes some guys are really honest that work for Wall st.that play by the rules.Those are the people I deal with.

          • Mr. Realistic says:

            I don’t deal in USD either, but I don’t share your view that some guys play by the rules … only because Wall Street has bought so many politicians they inevitably get to MAKE those very rules. It is like playing poker with a stacked deck.
