Amid controversy, Hillary holds Iowa lead

by David McCabe  |  published on May 8, 2015


Hillary Clinton has maintained a significant lead in the Iowa caucuses despite controversies dogging her campaign, according to a new poll.

Sixty percent of Democratic caucus-goers back the former secretary of State in her presidential bid, according to the Quinnipiac University poll.
Fifteen percent supported Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is running as a Democrat, and 11 percent backed Vice President Biden, who has not ruled out running but is not believed to be actively building a campaign organization.

Former Sen. Jim Webb (Va.) and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley each attracted 3 percent support.

The poll also suggests that recent questions about whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in influence peddling while Hillary Clinton was at the State Department have done little to hurt her among Democrats in the state. In a February poll, she garnered 61 percent among likely caucus-goers.

    Teaman, you have so much hate you revert to name calling and cannot see the big picture. We are lucky you are in the minority.

    When a ship sinks the vermin also drowns. With America much of the ship is controlled by said vermin. Most countries fail to recognize the danger before being overtaken. For me to live is Christ and to die is gain!

    What do you expect, scum votes for scum every time!!! That is exactly how we got the Obambulating Manure Spreader and Dirty Harry Reed.

    Benghazi was not Hillary fault. We got caught with our pants down just like the 240 Marines that got blown up in the Middle East under Reagon and 9/11 under Bush or Pearl Harbor under Roosevelt. The embassador should have not been in that location but he wanted to be there. The guards at the gate were not Marines and should have been. He died from a fire started by these invaders because we left gas cans out in the open for them to use.

    E-mail, yes she should have used two accounts but is was not against the law to do what she was doing. Colin Powell did the same thing as Secretary of State. At least they have it fised now.

    “Sixty percent of Democratic caucus-goers back the former secretary of State in her presidential bid, according to the Quinnipiac University poll.”

    Keep in mind this is a University Poll and among Democratsc caucus-goers, NOT THE GENERAL PUBLIC.

    Don’t be mislead to think 60% of Iowa is for her.
    (It is all about perception and the low information voters will fall for this communist deception)
    Voting for Hillary is like your inviting a criminal into your home.

    Why not? Liberals are delusional – just like Killary.
