Political Strategy for a Permanent Democratic Majority

HRC at State Popular with Public

Now that all of the pundits have had their say about the pros and cons of appointing Senator Clinton Secretary of State, the public weighs in with overwhelming support for the idea, according to a new Gallup poll. The poll, conducted last Tuesday, indicates that 57 percent of respondents favor Clinton’s appointment, with 30 percent opposed and 12 percent with no opinion. That should shrink the political downside considerably, especially among Democrats, 79 percent of whom favored the idea, with only 12 percent opposed. Among self-identified Independents, 57 percent supported HRC’s appointment, with 27 percent opposed. Only 26 percent of Republicans liked the idea, however, with 61 percent opposed. Interestingly men supported the idea as much as women (56 to 58 percent respectively).
