Hillary Clinton

Remember when: “Hillary leads Dem candidates in character, honesty.”

Now that journalists and pundits are explaining Hillary’s current position in the polls to a lack of character, I thought I’d reprint this short blog post about an AP Poll from fellow HCQ editor, Rake Morgan:

The latest Associated Press poll shows that Hillary Clinton’s unwillingness to “disown” her past support for the Iraq war is creating confidence in her honesty and character among voters.

According to AP poll  results announced today (reported in the Huffington Post), 55% of voters say that honesty and character are more important than specific policy positions.

On that key trait, Hillary Clinton has a considerable lead over all other Democrats:

“Among Democrats, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York leads with 38 percent, followed by Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois at 21 percent. Former Vice President Al Gore is at 14 percent and 2004 vice presidential nominee John Edwards is at 10 percent. The rest of the field is in single digits.”
