Hillary Clinton's Long Streak of Never Trailing in Republican Matchups Comes to an End

Fox News yesterday published the first national poll showing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton trailing a Republican rival.

The poll, which was conducted by the bipartisan polling team of Anderson Robbin Research (D) & Shaw Company (R), showed former Florida Governor Jeb Bush leading Clinton 45% to 44%. The poll displayed a large gender gap, with women favoring Clinton by 12%, but men favoring Bush by 16%.

A review of the history of Fox polls on the Hillary Clinton- Jeb Bush matchup, shows that Clinton's electorate advantage has been slipping for some time:
3/4/14  Clinton by 13%
7/22/14  Clinton by 13%
12/9/14  Clinton by 7%
1/27/15  Clinton by 5%
3/31/15  Tie
4/21/15  Clinton by 4%
5/12/15  Bush by 1%

Other Republican candidates, however, continued to trail against Clinton in yesterday's Fox poll:
Rubio (-4%) Walker (-6%), Carson (-6%), Huckabee (-3%), Cruz (-5%), Kasich (-8%) and Fiorini (-12%).

unfortunately for Jeb, he seems to trail every other candidate in his own party

Two bitter and toxic pills Jeb Bush or Hillary Clinton.

Jeb has as a top adviser on US-Israeli policy is George W. Bush. Other advisers are Paul Wolfowitz, a top policy architect of the Iraq war. In February, the Jeb Bush campaign released a list of 21 foreign policy advisers; 17 of them served in the George W. Bush administration.

Hillary has her own baggage. Hillary as a Senator voted to authorize the invasion of Iraq. Then we have her on October 21, 2011 "CBS" - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shared a laugh with a television news reporter moments after hearing deposed Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi had been killed.

"We came, we saw, he died," she joked when told of news reports of Qaddafi's death by an aide in between formal interviews. See video at -

The over throw of Saddam and Qaddafi has not worked out well for the people of Iraq or Libya.

I will take Bernie Sanders any day over Jeb,or Hillary.
