Description

January 11, 2005--The first Hillary Meter of 2006 shows a more positive perception of New York's Junior Senator than any survey conducted in 2005. For the first time ever, fewer than 40% of Americans view Clinton as politically liberal. Thirty-nine percent (39%) now see her as liberal while 38% say moderate. Last January, 51% of Americans viewed the former First Lady as liberal. (see trends). The perceived shift to the right has made her more appealing to voters--34% now say they would definitely vote for Clinton while 35% say they would definitely vote against her. In mid-December, those numbers were 30% for and 37% against. Thirty-seven percent (37%) would definitely vote against Senator Clinton. Demographic crosstabs are available for Premium Members. Collectively, today’s Hillary Meter places Senator Clinton a net 45 points to the left of the nation's political center. That's the closest to the political center she has been since we began bi-weekly polling last year. As with all tracking polls, it remains to be seen whether this is a lasting improvement or merely statistical noise.
