Most Americans reject the charge that other presidential candidates are "piling on" Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to a new Fox 5/The Washington Times/Rasmussen Reports poll.
Only 25 percent of voters said recent criticism of Mrs. Clinton constitutes piling on, the survey found, and of those, less than half said she was the target because she is a woman.
"The vast majority of Americans are treating Senator Clinton as a front-running presidential candidate, not as a women who happens to be running for president," said pollster Scott Rasmussen, adding that the poll's questions, taken together, show less than 15 percent of Democrats think she's being picked on as a woman.
