Interesting. Even fascinating. And hugely depressing. Quinnipiac.
Clinton … gets 41 percent to Bush's 42 percent.
Even undeclared Biden squeezes by Bush, 43-42, although his undeclared status probably explains his lead.
Nevertheless, "Clinton gets 55 percent of Democratic voters nationwide." (Thirteen percent are pro-Biden.)
Then there's this. "If the election for the U.S. House of Representatives were being held today, would you vote for the Republican candidate or for the Democratic candidate in your district?" Republicans top the Dems by 2 percent (39-37); independents favor Republicans by 10. The same 2-percent GOP spread holds for the Senate.
And who remains the GOP's top spokesman, the embodiment of all things Republican? You got it. Trump, who leads Bush by 10.
Hillary has a net unfavorability rating of 11 percent. Trump's is 32, but, come on. Bush's net favorability is 2.
Hillary loses the "honest and trustworthy" question game by 20 points. Jeb wins it by 16.
"Would you say that Hillary Clinton cares about the needs and problems of people like you?" No, by 7 points. For Bush, yes, by 2.
Honest/Trustworthy and Cares/Problems are the two "most important personal qualit[ies] in deciding [one's] vote in the 2016 general election for president." Strong Leadership trails both by at least 7.
Please don't tell me American voters aren't yet paying attention. Presidential campaigns haven't received this much early attention since Andrew Jackson launched his second bid immediately after losing his first.
It's all quite interesting, to me, even fascinating — and depressing to the bone. This isn't to predict that Bush will win. He, or some fungible clod, will likely wind up with the same 47.2 percent that the fungibly cloddish Mitt Romney reaped in 2012. Likewise the House, anyway, will remain the same — the same sewer of witless obstruction. It's the sameness that's depressing.
