View Diary: Ann Seltzer has done a 2016 Des Moines Register Iowa Poll (46 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  Her favorability among all voters (0+ / 0-)

    doesn't tell us much about how she'll do in a Democratic caucus. The caucus is what makes an Iowa poll interesting. I'll tell a pollster I have a favorable opinion of Hillary but I'm hoping someone runs against her in the primary.

    •  Iowa caucuses depend upon organization (4+ / 0-)

      as of right now, no other Democratic will be close to Clinton in ground organization

      •  Resistance is futile. (0+ / 0-)

        Seriously, this poll would be much more interesting if it had Dem matchups or a question like, "Would you prefer Hillary Clinton in the Democratic caucus or another candidate?"
        Then we would know something. 54% of Democrats answered "very favorable." That's a high number but the flip side is that nearly half of Democrats may be looking for someone they like better.

        On the Republican side, all the complaining Democrats did about "the Ryan budget" either had no impact or made him more popular.
