Hillary Clinton is in deep doo- doo with Colorado voters, as a new poll shows nearly every single Republican contender either beating her, tying, or within the margin of error to defeat her in this crucial swing state.
And THAT is in a Quinnipiac University poll that relied heavily on women and independent voters. The breakdown was 53 percent women and 47 percent men, along with 37 percent independents, 28 percent Democrat and 26 percent Republicans.
Bottom line, Hillary ain’t looking so good.
Libertarian-leaning Rand Paul got the most support, beating Clinton in a head-to-head matchup with 44 percent to her 41 percent. His backing among independents was stronger than hers, and he captured a solid number of women voters as well.
Scott Walker beat Clinton 42 to 41 percent with a strong chunk of independent voters preferring the Wisconsin governor 41 to Clinton’s 34 percent.
Also beating Clinton was U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, 41 percent to her 40 percent. Rubio’s support with independents was stronger than Hillary’s, 39 to 36 percent. Only 10 percent of those polled were Hispanic.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee also tied Clinton at 41-41 percent.
Secretary Clinton has lost ground in almost every matchup in Colorado and Iowa since a February 18 Swing State Poll by the independent Quinnipiac University.
Within the three percent margin of error of catching her were U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, 41 to her 42 percent, and New Jersey Gov. Christopher Christie, 39 to her 41 percent.
The poll was completed April 7, just as Florida Gov. Jeb Bush was rolling into the state. His support was 38 to her 41 percent.
Coloradans also expressed their frustrations that the former Secretary of State kept government business secret by using a personal email account and then destroyed those messages.
A staggering 56 percent of you said she was untrustworthy, and 52 percent said there should be a congressional investigation.
“Hillary Clinton still has a mountain or two to climb to win the hearts of Coloradans who don’t trust her,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “The e- mail controversy is opening doors to candidates who had little traction as Hillary Clinton gets bad numbers on trust and honesty.”
That’s a fact. Her unfavorable ratings among Colorado women were 47 percent, and 55 percent among independents.
