Hillary Clinton isn’t playing around on the campaign trail. At a recent Clinton campaign event in Ohio, Hillary took aim at Republicans for the stance on women’s health issues. She linked their position on women’s health to how terrorist groups operate, Mashable reports.
“Now extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the President of the United States,” she said.
She went on to say that Republican champion “out-of-date, out-of-touch policies.”
“They are dead wrong for 21st Century America. We are going forward. We are not going back,” Clinton said as she rallied the crowd.
As you can imagine, Republicans do not agree with or approve of Hillary Clinton and her recent comments.
“For Hillary Clinton to equate her political opponents to terrorists is a new low for her flailing campaign. She should apologize immediately for her inflammatory rhetoric,” Republican National Committee Press Secretary Allison Moore said.
Though Republicans may be mad about Hillary Clinton, polls are showing that she’s on track to beat everyone for both the Democratic candidacy and the presidency. Vox reports that a recent Quinnipiac University poll shows that the Hillary Clinton campaign will wrest the candidacy with 45 percent of the vote, while they predict that Bernie Sanders will get 22 percent of the vote and Joe Biden 18 percent of the vote.
Hillary For President 2016 seems to be right on track as the poll predicts that Clinton would most likely beat Republic frontrunners Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, or Donald Trump head to head.
The polls also indicate that the Hillary Clinton campaign would trounce Donald Trump if he ran against her as an independent.
The results are interesting when you consider the Clinton email scandal is still something that haunts Hillary’s campaign. A recent article by the New York Times reveals that leaders in the Democratic party still disapprove of the way she handled the issue.
The Hillary Clinton email scandal erupted when reports emerged that Clinton used a private email address on a private non-government server when she conducted official business during her time as the U.S. Secretary of State. Officials from the National Archives and Records Association and Congress members have contended that Hillary’s use of private email accounts violated federal laws and protocols that govern the actions of the State Department.
Hillary has responded to questions about the emails by saying that everything she did was permitted. In an interview with CNN in July this year, Clinton had this to say about the email scandal.
“Everything I did was permitted. There was no law. There was no regulation. There was nothing that did not give me the full authority to decide how I was going to communicate. Previous secretaries of state have said they did the same thing.”
But as the New York Times reports, interviews with 75 Democratic governors, lawmakers, candidates, and party members have revealed that many of them are ‘bewildered” by how Clinton handled the email scandal
“They’ve handled the email issue poorly, maybe atrociously, certainly horribly,” said Edward G. Rendell, a former governor of Pennsylvania and a supporter of Mrs. Clinton’s candidacy. “The campaign has been incredibly tone-deaf, not seeing this as a more serious issue. She should have turned over the email server at the start, because they should have known they’d be forced to give it up. But at this point, there’s nothing they can do to kill the issue — they’re left just playing defense.”
In other Hillary Clinton news, CNN Politics reports she recently took responsibility for the email flub at an Iowa campaign event.
“My use of personal email was allowed by the State Department. It clearly wasn’t the best choice. I should have used two emails — one personal, one for work — and I take responsibility for that decision,” she said.
