Hillary dishonesty perception becomes voter reality

Hillary dishonesty perception becomes voter reality

Town hall question reflects deep public perceptions.

One of the most interesting (maybe the only interesting) part of last night’s Democratic candidate “town hall” forum was when a young questioner said his friends think Hillary is dishonest.

Hillary’s answer is irrelevant.

Media spin that this shows her strength of durability is nonsense.

The questioner reflected a growing public perception that Hillary is corrupt and dishonest, as reflected in this word cloud based on Quinnipiac word-association polling in August 2015. The three most common words used to describe Clinton? “Liar,” “dishonest,” and “untrustworthy.”

And another word cloud from early December 2015 based on social media usage, in which “unethical” was the top word:

For Hillary, it’s drip, drip, drip when it comes to public perception.

How that translates into votes remains to be seen. If Hillary is the nominee, Democrats will vote for her even if they know she’s dishonest, corrupt and unethical. But will independent voters?

Hillary: “Look, I don’t cross my fingers in front of you, do I?”

Meanwhile, in the background, Huma keeps crossing her fingers for her mistress.

Who needs independents when you’ve got the dead vote locked up?

(Cackle, hack, hack, cackle, hack…)”It depends on who you (hack)talk to young man. I like little people being engaged in my cam..(hack, cough, blup, hackkkk, cackle)…paign.”

“If you talked to Huma (hack) or Sidney (cackle hack) or the NYTs (chortle, pflembbbb, boing!) you’ll get a clear picture of who I ammm..ch.cjh..kack….cackle sputter hack!). You may sit down now young (spppt!) man.”

Heh…they aren’t asking her about this one time at band camp when she and Barack Obama killed Bin Laden?

Like asking Chris Christie if he’s overweight.

She’s not going to make it as far as the convention. The health issue is a trial balloon being floated as a means of a somewhat modestly graceful exit. The political ramifications to the Dems of the legal/political bombs about to fall on Hillary and/or her closest aides is something they need to get some distance on. The legal process will take longer than the year they have left to clean it up and the very last thing they can afford is for it to drag on into a Republican administration. Her blunders on national security and public corruption matters have become indefensible even to her allies. She’s a terminal cancer. Hillary’s put everybody on her side of the aisle in a very deep, very dark hole. That the Clintons are going to be sacrificed is a given. What’s left to be determined is the how of it all.

Human is about to fold like a cheap suit and spill the beans about Hillary. When that happens, all Hell will break loose. Even the sycophantic media will not be able to cover her fat a$$.

    I think Huma’s role in any and all of this is in service to a far higher power. So long as there is value to said power in being close to the Clintons, Huma will remain loyal to her fiend, and won’t spill any beans at all.

    Silly me, that was a typo surely I meant to say friend.

Mr. Rogers (putting on sneakers): “Children, listen carefully to Ms Clinton trying to answer this young person’s question:”

(Plays video)

Mr. Rogers: “Did you listen closely? Do you think she really answered that young man’s question?” (short pause) “Children, can you say obfuscation?”

“Democrats will vote for her even if they know she’s dishonest, corrupt and unethical”

This is incorrect. They’ll vote for her BECAUSE she’s dishonest corrupt and unethical.

“Young man, when I’m your only alternative, you’ll learn to hold your tongue and vote for me. Or do you want an IRS audit?”

The young man was absolutely right!

What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Hillary Clinton?

liar

dishonest

untrustworthy
