Clinton Well Liked In New York, Polls Say



Amherst, NY (WBEN) - Hillary Clinton will speak in Western New York tonight for the first time in 5 years as part of the University at Buffalo's distinguished speakers series.

Could Clinton's current speaking tour be a prelude to a 2016 Presidential run? Siena Poll's Steve Greenburg says that if that's the case, she won't have too much of a problem winning New York.

"New Yorkers love their former Senator, former First Lady, former Secretary of State," said Greenburg. "Right now, two thirds of New York voters, 67 percent, have a favorable view of Hillary Clinton."

Even though the numbers are strong, Greenburg says Clinton can be a divisive figure.

"There's a big partisan break here, 83 percent of Democrats like Hillary Clinton, as well as 60 percent of Independents. Republicans not so much, 54 percent of Republicans have an unfavorable view of the former First Lady."

No matter what her possible reception at the ballot may be, many expect Clinton to recieve a positive reaction when she takes the stage at Alumni Arena tonight at eight.

The GOP will give her the Presidency.
What sentient being would do something as stupid as to vote for a Republican now? Thanks to your little temper tantrum, the country now hates you. Might as well fulfill your little fantasies and nominate Ted Cruz already. Adios Whigs.

An internet experiment
Go to Google or Yahoo and type in "GOP is" and let the autofill do the rest. As you'll see, you've got your work cut out for you. Time to suppress more votes, wingnuts! Time to amp up the lies and propaganda, wingnut media!
