WARNING: I'm kind of trolling here. All polls suck, and CNN polls suck more than most.
Most Democrats say they'd support Hillary Clinton if she wins their party's nomination, but a new national survey indicates only a minority are excited about that prospect.So you're saying there's a chance for a Left Flank challenger? Maybe not.
"There are big differences between liberal and moderate Democrats that indicate that a primary challenger who runs to the right of Clinton may get more traction than a progressive challenger would," adds Holland. [. . .] Nearly three-quarters of liberals pick Clinton over her hypothetical opponents. Among moderate Democrats, that figure dropped to 58%," he added. [...] Twenty-percent of those questioned said they'd support a more conservative Democrat for the nomination, with 11% saying they'd back a more liberal candidate.Only 58%!! The Third Way is right! (And um, Right.) Matt Miller for President!!
All kidding aside, this is asinine stuff from CNN. I don't know of any comparable poll results on "enthusiasm" versus "satisfied, but I don't imagine 41% enthusiastic is that bad a number. Anyway, the number for "upset" if Clinton gains the nomination is 5%. No indication of how many "upset" want a more conservative candidate.
It's early days yet (not really) but maybe the data indicate that a Right-Left coalition to STOP HILLARY! might get a third of the vote. Is there a Fusion line in the primaries?
