Democrats Enthusiastic About Hilary Clinton As Nominee?
Most Democrats say they’d support Hillary Clinton if she wins their party’s nomination, but a new national survey indicates only a minority are excited about that prospect.
According to the survey, 63% of Democrats and independents who lean toward the party said they’d most likely support Clinton as the nominee.
That’s virtually unchanged from CNN’s May poll, but down from the seven in 10 Democrats who in February said that they’d back the former secretary of state, senator and first lady.
Clinton has been the overwhelming frontrunner for the nomination in just about every national and state poll conducted over the past 18 months, but 20% said they’d support a more conservative Democrat for the nomination, with 11% saying they’d back a more liberal candidate.
