National Poll Shows Little (If Any) Fallout From the NYT Fiasco

McClatchy-Marist released a national poll today with Hillary pitted against a variety of potential Republican challengers, and the results are right in line with many other recent polls. In short, Clinton is leading everyone by 5-10 points and Trump by more than that. And once again we see that a Clinton-Bush-Trump election would be 1992 all over again...only better. Please oh please make it so!

An interesting thing to point out here though is that the poll was conducted from July 22-28, and five of those seven days occurred during the New York Times fiasco and its messy aftermath. Looking at the crosstabs, Hillary remains as solid as ever among Democrats and also has a slight edge with Independents. So if this incident has had any impact on the electorate...it's really hard to see it in this poll.

Check out the goodness below and have a great weekend!

  1. Do we know when and where the poll was taken? I am glad that she is still out in front but I want to learn more about polling and how it takes place, when, where, who is contacted, etc. Thanks.

  2. Scan, I think I answered Anita's question pretty well on my Facebook Hillary page, so don't go to too much effort trying to answer. PS: You owe me a beer; someone from Facebook actually came here and read an article! :) (Facebook people usually don't read or share anything except misspelled trite sayings superimposed on out-of-focus photography.)
