If Hillary is the Dems choice of candidates for President in 2016, would some voters vote for her just because she would be the first female President of this country? I saw a poll where a high percentage of the females polled said she would probably get their vote just because she is a woman. I would hope our voters would dig a little deeper than just the gender of a candidate before casting their ballot.
sort by best latest
Tsad - You always make sense but our low information types just don't have the brain power to see past the gender thing. I personally don't have any respect for this person, "Woman," who is as corrupt and evil as they come, but some just love her.
In order to defeat Hilary Clinton the Republican candidate will need to provide a better plan for America. Personal attacks for a year and a half will wear thin. At some point it sounds like bullying. Hating someone is not outsmarting them.
dashing - The media will play a very important role depending on how and if they report the findings on her latest scandals. If they choose to ignore these issues she may win due to voter ignorance.
Mike , Most people already know whether or not they plan to vote for Hilary or the eventual Republican candidate. What happens in the media will be "gotcha entertainment" for supporters of both candidates. It's unlikely they'll change their vote.
Did you read how while Secretary of State she accepted millions from a Russian source to approve access to 1/5 of our uranium? Such treachery...
Paula and John - She is obviously of the crowd who feel they are above the law. This crowd is growing in numbers and I am starting to believe they really are above the law.
"The stupid, blind deaf & dumb percentage" oh,oh we're in trouble, see the Frog Prince.
Tsad - This comment is also "awaiting moderation" What the heck is going on with this?
Mike, you need to mark my comments "not spam" for it to show.
Now that Carly Fiorina has announced her intention to seek the Republican Party nomination. I wonder if anyone will be asking if (women) are going to vote for her simply because she is a woman? :)
dashing - Great comment. Bill Clinton still has a large fan club that would love to see him back in office. Some feel that by electing Hillary they would have their beloved Bill back in the White House. To some degree they may be correct.
Mike, This is exactly what many voters are thinking. Even if they don't like Hilary they love Bill and believe he'll be indirectly overseeing the daily operations of running the country. A vote for Hill is a vote for Bill. That's how they see it.
Dashing you know I admire and respect you........My 8 year old grand daughter could have SCORCHED Palin. I t would require my 25 year old grand daughter to beat the Crap outta Hilary. "Jane" is intelligent, moral, HONEST, Patriotic, & personab
Paula - Many of the voters these days do not even know who George Washington is, and can't name the Vice President after nearly two terms in office. This pretty well tells the story on election outcomes.
So dashing the real reason women will vote for Hiliary solely because she is a woman is that they secretly are voting for Bill & just lying about voting for Hiliary just because she is a woman? Boy, the liar thing goes way deeper than justHiliary
Tsad - I honestly believe that if Bill could run for President again he would win no matter who ran against him. His fan club is huge for reasons unknown to me.
TSAD, I'm saying Bill Clinton is far more popular than Hilary Clinton! Some women will vote for her in order to make history. However having Bill as her husband makes them feel that it is far less riskier than it would be with another woman.
Well obviously"some"women must have never been married to an adulterous,rapist lawyer who's been disbarred for lying & in cahoots with his wife in an influence peddling scam.Hillary's reaction, http://usercontent2.hubimg.com/12377953_f496.jpg
Dashing if there's an oz. of REAL honesty left, women would admit that "having Bill as Hilary's husband," beats the hell out of him being their husband! HE's 1 reason NOT to vote 4 her as she sing's Tammy Wynette's, "Stand by Ur Man." OFF-key!
Paula, According to polls Bill is more popular than any candidate considering running for office.
There are people who hate Hillary but love Bill!
I suspect him being her husband is (going to get her votes) as opposed to lose her votes. :)
Dashing. .Oh I absolutely know people love him as a "Prez". I thought he was good myself, but his time has come & gone.He makes $500.000 per speech! Can U believe that? Voters are nuts if they think a vote 4 Hill is a vote 4 Bill. RETIREMENT!!!
Patti - It is rare but sometimes dreams do come true. She will skate out of her current scandals like she always does, and many will vote for her just to get their beloved Bill back in the White House.
Well now Carly Fiorina is also running. Which candidate do you believe women will align themselves with in the event that gender is all that matters?
dashing - The question would apply to any female running for President. Why would it be limited to Hillary?
Jim - I would expect that same thing to happen again, only this time it will be over gender rather than race. The low information types are growing in numbers and the election results make that more clear after every election.
Frog, ain't that the truth! What percentage of woman voters will vote for Hiliary because she is "supposedly" female? :-)
Tsad - It says your last comment is"currently awaiting moderation" in red letters. Awaiting moderation from who? Not me.
Blacks usually vote Democrat in the 85-90% range. If Herman Cain or Ben Carson black Republicans ran against Hilary Clinton. Hilary would get the "black vote"! Blacks have voted for whites many times. People wonder how white males will vote?
dashing - Let us hope that just once in their lives they vote with their head rather than their party, racial, or gender preference.
Mike, I get where you're coming from. I'm just tired of hearing people claim Obama got the black vote because he is black. When in reality blacks have traditionally voted for the Democrat candidate regardless of race! Unions also vote Democrat.
dashing - many of those who vote do not even check out the qualifications of those they vote for. They either vote as they are told to vote or for some reason that makes no sense at all. I would almost rather they didn't vote at all.
feenix - you are so right, "Woe are we" if she gets elected.
You can't overlook the Bill Clinton (third term) believers!
There are people who hate Hilary but love Bill and have fond memories of the economic times when was in office. Once he starts campaigning for her it will be as if he is the one.
The "good economic times" that occurred when Bill Clinton was prez grew out of all the sub-prime mortgages that were handed out under his watch. And the nation and its economy paid for that with the recession that hit the country in the late 2000s.
dashing - the comment from feenix pretty well sums up the good economic times. How anyone could not think this sub-prime mortgage thing would not come back and bite us is beyond me. These are supposed to be intelligent people we elect.
Name one thing B.J. Clinton did as president that helped the economy.The economy took off before he had a chance to do a single thing that would affect it and the reason it took off was because of ground work laid by the Reagan administration.
A man jumps off a 100 story building and as he passes the first floor he says to himself; " So far so good."
People only remember who was in office when the difficult times hit them and not actions taken 10 years prior that may have led to them
dashing - Very well put and easy to understand.
Nichol - I hope you are right. I don't know how but we need to get back to where citizens vote for the candidate they feel will best serve our country regardless of race, sex, or political party.
Yes, definitely seems to the morally right way to go about voting.
I think people for the most part vote according to party platform or pocketbook issues. If Joe Biden was the Democrat running against Sara Palin it's doubtful Democrat women would vote for her just because she's a woman. Platform issues matter.
dashing - The word "Free" seems to influence a great many voters. They still don't understand there really is no such thing as "Free." They will trade their precious vote for a "Free" cell phone any time one is offered.
