It’s Official. Hillary is Basically The Most Popular Person. Ever.

October 12, 2010


From today’s Politics Daily:

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is the most popular political figure in the nation, receiving a favorable rating of 64 percent in a Bloomberg National Poll released Tuesday. Following close on her heels is the first lady, Michelle Obama, with a 62 percent positive rating.

The two women climbed far above the pack of elected officials, political parties and TV political personalities. Lagging 11 percentage points behind Hillary Clinton, President Obama was in third place with a 53 percent favorable rating in the survey of 1,000 adults conducted Oct. 7-10.
It says quite a lot about politics in the midterms that Jon Stewart, the liberal host of the satirical newscast, “The Daily Show,” came in at 39 percent, ahead of Sarah Palin, a prospective presidential candidate in 2012 and a leader of the Tea Party movement, who pulled in 38 percent. Palin’s counterpart in Tea Party media politics, Glenn Beck, the Fox television host, followed her with 34 percent. And despite the trashing that political parties are taking this year, they did surprisingly well: Democratic (47 percent favorability rating), Republican (45 percent) and the Tea Party (41 percent).


Now when she delivers a speech at the Council on Foreign Relations, it is called the best speech of the Obama administration, and when she and Bill Clinton, himself now rated in some polls as the most popular politician in the land, make an appearance together, the Clintonians can only imagine them back in the White House — but with her in the Oval Office.

    Of course she is popular. She’s the only one doing a good job, everyone else is just fighting and pointing fingers at each other.

    I think her serving as SOS has not only helped the US diplomatically, but in terms of substance, it will only help her if she chooses to run for POTUS. While VP certainly makes one the party heir apparent, no one really cares much about the VP. I still would totally support a switch with Biden in 2012, but there is no doubt agreeing to be SOS has been a great move- for everyone. I can’t believe that there are some people who are still mad at her for joining the Obama admin!
