  • Saint Anselm-Bloomberg NH Poll: Clinton Favorability Unchanged : Saint Anselm College
    Democrats there is considerable skepticism about her truth telling I m not that happy about the private e mail server said Walter Hamilton a 64 year old Democrat and retired civil servant from Portsmouth N H referring to Clinton s use of non official e mail while she served as secretary of state He also expressed concerns about allegations of impropriety over foreign donations made to the Clinton Foundation during that same time But one thing stands out for Hamilton She s the only one that can beat the Republicans and my guess is that most Democrats feel the same way Among likely general election voters Clinton is less popular Nearly half of respondents had an unfavorable opinion of her and her favorable rating has dropped 8 percentage points since February to 46 percent Still only one politician in the survey had a higher favorability rating among general election voters Bill Clinton at 53 percent Among likely Democratic primary voters both Clintons and President Barack Obama are deeply popular with more than 85 percent expressing either very favorable or somewhat favorable opinions of them By contrast independent Senator Bernie Sanders a self described socialist from neighboring Vermont who announced his candidacy for the nomination last week has a 56 percent favorable rating among likely Democratic primary voters Another potential Democratic presidential candidate former Maryland Governor Martin O Malley had a 25 percent favorable rating a likely reflection of poor name recognition Yet the poll also suggests that voters believe the former first lady has a clear deficit in some of the qualities they consider most important in choosing a president Nearly six out of 10 likely general election voters said neither Bill nor Hillary Clinton can be trusted to tell the truth Nearly half 47 percent said neither Clinton shares their values They rated somewhat better on questions about having a vision for the future and perceptions that they care about people like you While feeding a narrative about her truthfulness criticism over Clinton s handling of foreign donations to her family foundation has not created the firestorm that Republicans might have foreseen A solid majority 60 percent of likely general election voters said they were either unsure about the allegations or believed they were just another example of overblown accusations by Republicans against the Clintons There s no smoking gun said Democrat Sharon Spickler a 58 year old retired attorney from Dover N H I m old enough to remember all those ridiculous accusations from the far right There s nothing that s convinced me that this is a legitimate issue Others think the accustions have merit Forty percent of those polled said they believed foreign governments and companies that donated to the Clinton Foundation or paid for Bill Clinton s speaking fees were probably looking for favors and some of them got what they wanted Thomas Keach a 50 year old independent who said he voted for Obama in 2012 said Clinton s foreign connections along with the
