Polls show Democrats Souring on Hillary as many want independent probe of email-gate and more than half of voters want a ‘fresh face’ to run for president

Democrats’ support is softening for Hillary Clinton, their party’s presumed 2016 presidential front-runner, with nearly half now in favor of an independent review of the private email account she used exclusively when she was America’s top diplomat.

And most Americans now say they don’t want to see political retreads running for president.

Support for Clinton’s candidacy has dropped about 15 percentage points since mid-February in her own party, with as few as 45 percent saying they would support her in the last week, according to a Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll.

Democrats likely to vote in the party primaries, however, backed off their support for her in slightly smaller numbers.

Reuters also found that 46 percent of Democrats believe there should be an independent probe of all of Clinton’s emails to ensure she turned over everything work-related when she left the Obama administration…

    I dislike Hillary as much as anyone, but I tell you, this is a manufactured smear job that has “been on ice” (probably along with a few others), with instructions to ‘pull it out and warm it up’ in the event that she looks like she is going to have a viable campaign.

    If this does not gain traction, look for the next drip from the scandal faucet.

    They have someone else on tap, as of yet unnamed, that they want as the Dem nominee.
    I’d LOVE to talk to the two guys at “Hill Buzz” about who they think the leakers are and from what faction this is coming.
    This might or might not be from the Obama camp; I just don’t know.

      There has been some far lefties claiming this is Jarred releasing the clinton scandals as she (jarred) has someone else planned and feels Hillary is not left enough.

      Very plausible it’s internal Dem sabotage, but it’s welcome for the Republicans who don’t have a popular candidate. Hillary’s chances appear sunk now. Too many resemblances to Nixon: ‘It isn’t a crime when the President does it.’ It would be so pleasant if she would go gentle into that good night of political retirement and obscurity.

    She has too much money and too much dirt on everyone else to be seriously challenged. Anyone else will feel like they’re being forced on voters even more than she is.

    What has this self entitled skank ever done that is worthy of any note. There’s no way the US voters would ever elect someone with zero credentials, and zero accomplishments………………….. oh wait, never mind.
