Quinnipiac came out with a new poll today and confirms the obvious: American think Hillary is a liar. Not exactly surprising news but the poll numbers are not kind to the former first lady.

 

34. Would you say that Hillary Clinton is honest, or not?

Go look at the whole poll. The internals are interesting. The key question regarding whether the candidate cares about America has Trump lagging. This was the indicator that Romney lost on, too. It may be why we’re seeing the Paid Maternity Leave gambit. Trump needs to show women, especially, that he cares about them.

42. Would you say that Hillary Clinton cares about average Americans, or not?

Other than this indicator, though, Trump does fairly well. For a political neophyte, he’s defying all the expectations. This has got to be deeply dismaying to the Clinton camp.

One more thing: Democrats don’t care that their candidates are criminals. It’s a feature, not a bug–so I don’t see Hillary losing any Dem support over her untruthfulness. Independents, though, might just feel disgusted enough to vote for a wildcard.
