In the newest edition of Afterburner, Bill Whittle focuses on higher education and some of the backwards thinking that exists in academia today.

As an example, he points to a student who protested Condoleezza Rice as a speaker on campus without appreciating the fact that Rice is more authentic than many of today’s progressive leaders.

Speaking of Condoleezza Rice, some recent polling for 2016 may surprise you.

Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner:

Draft Condi: In poll, only Rice beats Hillary Clinton

In what would be a first-ever race pitting former secretaries of state, only Condoleezza Rice would beat Hillary Rodham Clinton in Iowa, according to a new poll that could put fire under a languishing “Draft Condi” movement.

A new Townhall/Gravis Marketing poll found that Rice would beat Clinton in the state as every other Republican loses to the first Democrat to officially announce her candidacy.

In the poll, Rice would beat Clinton 43 percent to 40 percent, taking evangelical Protestants, Catholics and voters under 50 years old.

“What this tells me is the electorate wants a superstar like a Rice, someone with ideas and foreign policy credentials,” said Doug Kaplan, the managing partner of Gravis Insights, the Florida-based political consulting firm that conducted the poll.
