 Poll: Hillary Clinton sweeps GOP in Ohio

Hillary Clinton buries Gov. Chris Christie and other potential Republican presidential candidates in the crucial swing state of Ohio, according to a new poll on Thursday.

The former secretary of state, who led Christie 42 percent to 41 percent in November, now tops the New Jersey governor 49 percent to 36 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.

Of those polled, 55 percent said Clinton would make a good president, while 39 said she would not. Only 31 percent of voters said Christie would make a good president, plummeting from 44 percent in November.



Not only are Clinton’s numbers against Christie skyrocketing, but she bests the rest of the potential GOP field. She takes the biggest lead over Sen. Ted Cruz, 51 percent to 34 percent, and wins out over Rep. Paul Ryan 49 percent to 40 percent.

She leads Sen. Marco Rubio by 50 percent to 36 percent and Sen. Rand Paul 51 percent to 28 percent.

Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,370 registered voters from Feb. 12-17 with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.

I find this hard to grasp. The unions in this state are not thrilled with Obamacare. There are also not enough democratic counties for her to pull this supposed blow-out. The hardcore union dem counties are suffering terribly with no jobs. The brief shale oil boom has fizzled.

I am not one of those who Rove-out and say all polls are wrong but something is just plain fishy with this.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Most polls are not "wrong", they are an accurate picture of whatever data and demographics are being skewed to give the desired results - depending on who is paying for the poll.  Therefore, they should be taken with a grain of salt. 

Yes, Gazoo - you're guts are telling you something, that there's something fishy about this one.  Listen to your guts, they are rarely wrong. 

These polls are just going to become more numerous now - and the intention of most of them will be to direct conservatives (who both parties fear the most) away from the candidate that is the most conservative and has the best chance to win.  We will become ping-pong balls - bouncing all over the place if we put any stock in these polls.

These polls are extremely useful for one thing, however.  They are an excellent tool to use to see who they fear the most.
