2016 Presidential Poll Gives Clinton A Lead In Georgia, Of All Places
9:45 am, February 21st | by Colette McIntyre
Well, would you look at that! In a poll measuring the favorability of possible 2016 presidential nominees, one hypothetical candidate won deep-red Georgia with a comfortable margin. No, it wasn’t Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) or Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI). It was the South African grind train conductor and Queen of “O Rly?” faces herself, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Boom. Check, please!
According to a survey by Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling, Clinton leads Rubio 49 percent to 46 percent in the traditionally Republican state; when Clinton is pitted against Ryan, her favorability increases to 50 percent, beating the former GOP vice presidential nominee’s 45 percent. Clinton’s widest margin is against Ol’ Newty Gingrich, 51 percent to 44 percent. Overall, 49 percent of Georgia’s voters view Clinton favorably.
This is just one more red state lead that Clinton can add to her collection: previous PPP surveys found that Clinton bests Rubio, Governor Christie (R-NJ), and Governor Perry (R-TX) in Texas, Rubio in Alaska, and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rubio in Kentucky. LOLCat translation: Clinton is in ur statez, stealing ur conservative voterz.
