Poll update: Hillary in a walk over GOP oppnents

Posted By on Wed, Feb 6, 2013 at 3:22 PM

I mentioned earlier that a UA poll on presidential politics would be discussed at the Clinton School at lunch today.

Here's the University release on the event, with this presidential finding:

Poll questions released Wednesday also covered the 2012 presidential election results, attitudes toward women in the workplace and hypothetical 2016 presidential election match-ups involving the possible candidacy of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The poll results showed Clinton with leads over former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (61 percent to 32 percent), Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (61 percent to 30 percent) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (58 percent to 34 percent).

These are national numbers, not Arkansas numbers. I suspect she'd do a touch better than Obama here, too. Don't ask me why they left out The Huckster.

The broader report was titled "Is There a War on Women? Attitudes about Women in the Workplace and Politics." Read it all here.

Short takes:
* About 1 in 4 Southern white men exhibit sexist tendencies based on answers to questions.
* Obama's national gender gap (disproportionate female support) did not appear in the South, with votes for him by men and woman about equal.
* There was a big racial gap in the South, with minorities favoring Obama heavily and vice versa. (But, please. Don't view the Jason Rapert anti-Obama speech to the Tea Party in that context whatsoever. It was NOT about race.)
* Most people surveyed believe they'll see a woman president in their lifetime.
* Hillary would cut into Republican votes among women. She's also enjoy broad edges among minority voters, black and Latino.
