Polls: Hillary Clinton More Popular Than Obama
President Barack Obama was just inaugurated for his second consecutive term in office. His approval rating has gone up since the start of his second term. People generally seem to like him and his overall policies. However there is one politician that is slightly more popular. That politician would be none other than Hillary Clinton.
We all know Mrs. Clinton was the First Lady for eight years while her husband, Bill Clinton. served in office. Hillary served as the Secretary of State for President Obama, but most recently left the position. Mrs. Clinton showed a 61% favorability rating over Obama’s 51% rating as shown in a Quinnipiac University poll. The poll was taken over the telephone. 1,772 registered voters were questioned in the process. The poll has a margin of error that is plus or minus 2.3% points.
Clinton is rumored to be a 2016 Presidential candidate. If she were to win she would be the first ever female president. She tops a group comprised of Senator John Kerry, House Speaker John Boehner, Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Marco Rubio, and John Kerry. Kerry is now the Secretary of State, taking Clinton’s place.
When Bill Clinton served in office from 1992 to 2000 as President, Hillary was a very active First Lady, participating in many events, causes, and was very involved in politics herself. She put herself in the running for President in 2008 but dropped from the race before election time. It is said that she is thinking of running again for the 2016 election. She quit the Secretary of State position so that she could slow down a bit and take a step back, but many speculate it is most likely to focus on her campaign.
