What’s wrong with stupid Americans? At least 80 percent ought to be thinking that Hillary did something illegal, not a paltry 53 percent.
There’s so much to pick from: treason, money laundering, conspiracy to commit murder, influence pedaling, underage sex, security breaches. I’m sure that the amateur lawyers among us could come up with more charges.
A majority of voters believe Hillary Clinton has done something illegal, according to a new McClatchy-Marist Poll days before the presidential election.
A total of 83 percent of likely voters believe that Clinton did something wrong – 51 percent saying she did something illegal and 32 percent saying she something unethical but not illegal. Just 14 percent said she’s done nothing wrong.
By comparison, 79 percent think Donald Trump did something wrong, though not nearly as many think he did something illegal. Just 26 percent think he’s done something illegal, while 53 percent think he’s dome something unethical but not illegal. Just 17 percent think he’s done nothing wrong.
The deep suspicion of Clinton is likely a top reason she’s lost much of her lead and the race for the White House has tightened in the race’s closing days.
In a four-way race, the two are neck and neck with Clinton supported by 44 percent and Trump by 43 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson has 6 percent, and the Green Party’s Jill Stein has 2 percent.
In a two-way match up, Clinton has 46 percent, Trump 44 percent.
Both candidates are disliked.
Clinton gets a favorable rating from just 40 percent while 57 percent have unfavorable views of her. Voters have a 61 percent to 36 percent unfavorable-favorable rating of Trump.
“This is practically off the charts,” said Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion in New York, which conducted the nationwide survey. “You have candidates coming before the electorate with enormous baggage.”
Clinton has been dogged for the entire campaign by questions about her personal email account and her family foundation. Now, the final days of the campaign have been shadowed by the news that the FBI is examining new emails.
Hillary claimed her 33,000 deleted emails were about yoga classes and wedding planning. Did this vile creature ever do any work? Probably not, but her attention was surely not on yoga and weddings, but on raising money for the Clinton Foundation, money that would be spent supporting the Clinton’s luxurious lifestyle.
You have to believe that she lied to the FBI and Congress about yoga and weddings. But those emails are gone, right? Bleached away.
Not so fast.
