Women Prefer Hillary over Palin 2 to 1

In a hypothetical match up, Hillary vs Palin for President in 2012, Hillary would beat Palin 2 to 1 according to a new poll.

The poll’s other findings include: (from clubfemina.com)


  • The preference for Clinton is widest in handling the responsibilities of a President. Clinton is seen as doing a better job dealing with the economy by a 40 percent margin and as more effective in dealing with foreign leaders by 48 percent.
  • Clinton also holds a substantial edge in character and personal issues.
  • American women voters not only admire Hillary Clinton more, they also relate to her more than to Sarah Palin. While the margin is not as wide as in the presidential job responsibilities, women see Clinton’s values as closer to their own and would rather have Hillary Clinton as a friend.
  • While Clinton comes out on top again in her role as a mother, this is an area where many women felt they could not or would not judge or compare these women.
  • A third of the women polled say their views of Clinton have become more positive. Only a tiny minority has a more negative view than a year ago. Fifty-six percent of women said their views are unchanged.

With the Country in the shape it is in AND Obama a heart beat away from stealing, lying, and cheating his way into the White House, CAN ANYBODY tell me why anyone would WASTE time with a poll that means absolutely NOTHING??? At this point IN TIME, WE ALL need to be concentrating ALL efforts in getting through 2008! In case anyone has missed it, Obama is doing the EXACT same things to McCain that he did with Hillary. First it was the skewed polls (making everyone THINK that he was winning), Then going into the crucial states and pulling stunts like he just did in Ohio and is NOW doing in PA. And of course we cannot forget the "kitchen sink" which also had the toilet in with it being thrown at Sarah Palin. NOW, he is starting back on McCain with the Keating Five videos?? This man AND his campaign has been pure TRASH from day ONE. And the sad part is that so many plain stupid Americans are buying into it! Little children singing about him? Who are they kidding? Just Who do all these followers THINK he is going to save. If you watche Hannity's America on Sunday night it just gets scarier, the ties Obama has had to terrorist's for MANY years and the fact that questionable people actually PAID his way through college! What it makes me think of is when Kruschev stood at the podium and said "I will destroy your grandchildren without firing one bullet." And of course he meant that he will infiltrate and watch us destroy ourselves. While watching Hannity another really unbelievable report was that there are so many KNOWN anti-American, terrorist connected people TEACHING in our UNIVERSITIES across this Country, one of which of COURSE connected to BARRY OBAMA. Doesn't COMMON SENSE say that these people would have been checked out and NEVER hired into positions that INFLUENCE our CHILDREN??? What has happened to common sense? There sure has not been ANY COMMON SENSE with these Obama worshipers! We need to stop wasting time with hypothetical polls and START doing something to first get an AMERICAN that LOVES this Country in the White House, and the last time I checked out of the two running it was ONLY John McCain.

Typical smear-job.

All anyone has to do is look at the ads the McCain/Palin team is running, look as the bs statements they're making (gotta love youtube), and it's pretty clear who's campaign is "pure trash."

McCain is trying to do to Obama what was done to him by George Bush in 2000. Which is sad, really.

But since you're a Hannity fan - care to share some of the lovely things he and his bosses have said about Hillary over the years? 'Cause he's done some pretty good smear jobs on her, too. If you consider Sean Hannity's hatchet jobs a valid source of information, it says a lot about where you're coming from, imo.


2 things I love about this poll - The first is that it shows that most women will not be fooled (go Hillary!) and the second is how many refused to answer questions about which woman "was a better mother." Because until we're asking about the parental skills of male politicians, it's a sexist question.

I couldn't agree with your more "post 1"...you hit the nail right on the head...People have been so swayed by Obama...and, the media just dote on him...whereas, they were so critical/mean to Hillary...it broke my heart to watch that happening to her...I'm so disgusted with everything and just wish it was over....IF Obama wins....it's going to be a long 4 years....it's probably better that he didn't pick Hillary as his VP...because, with the "mistakes" he makes...he won't be dragging her down with him!!

Hmmmmmmm, so the same women who wanted a smart, accomplished, experienced woman are now ready to throw same woman and her platform under the bus and vote for that vapid, right-wing nut job who is so anti-woman.

All because your little feminine pride is hurt. And you're so mad that you can't vote for a man who agrees with many things Hillary does.

You're nothing but sexist pigs in lipstick.
Yes, SEXIST....and believe me, women can be as sexist as men
(and when I read most of the posts here, I'm beginning to think even more!)

I put beth and pam in the same group. Please do not compare Hillary with Obama. Apparently you were an Obama supporter in the primary. The first shot was fired by Obama with the race issue as tho we were too stupid to see with our eyes. He had to make it a campaign foible to enhance his underdog status. Hillary knows he is not presidential material but continues to be loyal to the party. Her position requires that action. I understand that an effective soldier is not a dead soldier but my position requires that because of the degrading of the democratic party by the self-serving party leaders, who need to be shown that they are serving at the will of the people, I will do all I can to assist McCain/Palin to win this election.

Please don't play the gender card. I voted for Hillary in the primary,am not voting for Obama.This most certainly does not make me a sexist. If I trusted Obama, no problem I will support him because I have always been a Democrat until now. I will acst my vote on McCain, he, in my opinion can govern & protect our country.

I love my country, and even if only half of the stuff out there about Obama is true, and the stuff we have heard out of his own mouth, there is no WAY I can vote for Obama. I can't understand the multitude of people who fall for this guy without even questioning him and his motives for the direction he plans to take this country, down socialist lane. Did these obamalovers not learn anything in school history????Do they not know what leads to communism? Do they not understand that his tax plan is disguised and will effect most americans and make them poorer???? My goodness this is madness anyone supporting Obama these days. Must have a dead spider in the cobweb of their brains.

GWB must be so jealous that a useless clueless liar seems to be far more popular than he is!

First of all, I not only voted for Hillary, I donated to her campaign. And I didn't compare Hillary and Obama - I compared their postitions.

Because knee-jerk responses aside, their POSITIONS are very similar. So if I can't vote for Hillary, I can at least vote for someone with the same values.

Whereas voting McCain undermines pretty much everything Hillary stood for and ran on.

"Hillary knows he is not presidential material but continues to be loyal to the party."

I am astounded that the moderators continue to allow people to disrespect Hillary and her integrity like this.

Hillary could have done what every second-place primary finisher has done in recent memory: pay lip service and step back (Bill Bradley? Howard Dean? Heck, where's Mitt Romeny been since he wasn't picked as VP?). She's going FAR above and behyond the call.

Disagree with her if you must, but you should stop impugning her intergrity.

But, one question that has failed to be answered...why can't we just NOT LIKE OBAMA, NOT LIKE HOW THEY THE DNC HANDLED SHOVING SENATOR CLINTON ASIDE AND TWISTING THE RULES TO KEEP A WOMAN OUT AS THE CANDIDATE...WHY DOES OBAMA AND HIS FOLLOWERS ALWAYS SCREAM RACE...? HE'S NOT BLACK, HE bi-RACIAL.......HALF WHITE AND HALF BLACK.....SO WHO'S TO SAY WE DON'T LIKE THE WHITE-OBAMA PART? OR WE JUST DON'T LIKE THE PEOPLE HE HAS ASSOCIATED WITH ALL OF HIS LIFE AND INSTEAD OF ANSWERING QUESTIONS AND SHOVING HTHEM ASIDE ONCE EXPOSED, HE DENOUNCES THEM...BUT, NOT UNTIL THEY ARE A PROBLEM...20+ YEARS IN SOME CASES..AND MAYBE IT'S BECAUSE HE LIES AND SAYS HE DIDN'T KNOW WHT THEY DID OR WHO THEY WERE...THAT IS SO CHILDISH AND SUCH A CHILDISH LIE...AND IF IT ISN'T...i SURE AS HELL DON'T WANT SOMEONE THAT NAIIVE IN CHARGE OF MY COUNTRY......

Dean Anonymous,
I can tell you have done your research. Anyone involved with this campaign, especially as a Hillary delegate, knows exactly what you are talking about.
Everyone needs to think why they did not vote for Obama in the first place and why they voted for Hillary. Those are still reasons not to vote for him. He has not changed. Matter of fact, things have gotten more exposed about him and the media keeps protecting him.
You should wonder why and why the DNC forced his nomination upon us and are now forcing his Presidency on us. Check his web site. They show people how to vote in the polls and affect them by voting several times for Obama. It goes on and on and he needs to be stopped.
Just take a moment and check into the two candidates voting records and their circle of friends. Then make your decision. I bet McCain comes out ahead.
As far as Palin, you should respect what she has accomplished in her life. More than me. I stopped at the PTA and just local campaigns. She went on and made a difference with 5 children. By the way, her husband built their house, they ran a small fishing business (not easy), besides mayor, she headed the energy commission for Alaska and then voted as the governor--matter of fact, one of the most popular governors in the US. Her children go to public school (not Obama).
By the way,Bill Clinton was a governor of a small state before he became President and no one says he is inexperienced. Least she has held an executive position and that is more than Obama has done. Please think person and not the party. Don't drink the Kool-aid. Remember the quote from Susan B. Anthony--don't support a party that does not support you.
Plus remember, Obama is not giving Hillary any credit for the part of the platform that was hers that he is using now. Think also while he was in Hawaii vacationing, he had Hillary running all over the country campaigning and making her think she was going to be VP.
He made a mistake not making her VP and we should him and the DNC the message that we don't support those kind of tactics and we don't support them.
Vote no to Obama.

"By the way,Bill Clinton was a governor of a small state before he became President and no one says he is inexperienced."

Possibly because a) Arkansas has about 5 times the population (hell, the Little Rock Metro area has as many people as the entire state of Alaska) and b) Bill was governor for 10 YEARS before he ran for President.

Give Palin the credit she's due for what she's accomplished so far, but she's still not nearly big enough for Hillary's shoes.

hillgal2008, "childish"?
Can we say "pot, meet kettle" because that's all I've seen from you SUPPOSED Hillary supporters at this site.
Nothing but anger....and you all are even attacking Hillary for campaigning for Obama!

Whine, whine, whine....
Bitch, bitch, bitch....
BTW, I don't put half of my posts IN CAPITAL LETTERS.
Are you screaming? How mature...of course, never CHILDISH, LOL!

Beth, I guess you and I are about the only voice of reason since we supported Hillary and still support HER IDEALS, what she stands for, and HER PARTY.

The rest of you...well, I hope you can live with yourselves for the next 4 (or, hopefully, EIGHT YEARS) of an Obama presidency.

If not, Beth and I will be glad to buy you all some "binkies" to suck on.
Pam
