A 2016 Presidential Poll has Hillary Clinton winning despite the former Secretary of State’s bungling of the Benghazi situation.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, a 2016 Presidential Poll shows that Hillary Clinton would defeat any Republican challengers, even rising GOP star Chris Christie, the New Jersey governor who led his state with aplomb during Superstorm Sandy. The 2016 Presidential Poll data suggests that Hillary Clinton would beat Christie 45 percent to 37 percent.
“Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton would start a 2016 presidential campaign with enormous advantages,” said the polling institute’s assistant director Peter Brown. “She obviously is by far the best known, and her more than 20 years in the public spotlight allows her to create a very favorable impression on the American people.”
Hillary Clinton was the Secretary of State and presided over the people who were directly responsible for the Benghazi debacle. Hillary Clinton also lied to the public multiple times about Benghazi, and in response to hard questions about the Obama administration purposefully misleading the American public, all she could do was spout, “What difference does it make?”
According to the 2016 Presidential Poll, Benghazi did not make a difference when it came to public perception of Hillary Clinton. But the Benghazi scandal just won’t die.
Only several weeks ago, Senator John McCain spoke about Benghazi, claiming there was “[a massive cover-up of] the information concerning the deaths of four brave Americans. The information has not been forthcoming.” A book called Benghazi: The Definitive Report claims the Benghazi attack was retaliation by Islamist militants who had been targeted by covert US military operations, yet former CIA Director David Petraeus supposedly did not know about the American raids.
There still remains critical unanswered questions over Benghazi. Someone in the State Department gave Charlene Lamb the idea that there was “too much political cost” for keeping the Benghazi security forces at safer levels. Instead, they lowered the number of diplomatic security agents in Benghazi from 34 to just three.
The worst part is that neither Hillary Clinton, Charlene Lamb, or any of the other people in the State Department were held responsible for their actions. Several State department officials were thought to be the sacrificial lambs who would lose their jobs over the gross incompetence displayed with Benghazi. This phony announcement from the State Department was made under Hillary Clinton. Yet, despite all evidence to the contrary, people still think Hillary Clinton was doing a good job.
Do you think Benghazi matters at all and should affect the 2016 Presidential Poll results?
