Polls Show Americans Distrust Clinton, Supporters Begin to Panic

Washington, DC – -(Ammoland.com)- While the FBI might have let presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton off the hook for her alleged mishandling of classified information, recent Washington Post/ABC News and CBS/New York Times polls suggest that the American public is far less forgiving.

Coupled with recent polls showing presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump leading, or within striking distance, in several swing states:

Some in the Clinton camp are beginning to panic.

On Monday, the Washington Post published the results of their poll, conducted July 6-7 2016, which asked respondents several questions regarding the Clinton email scandal. When asked:

“Do you approve or disapprove of [FBI Director James] Comey's recommendation that Clinton should NOT be charged with a crime?”

A majority of 56 percent answered that they disapprove of his decision; this included a majority of independents. A mere 35 percent approved of FBI’s recommendation.

Another question asked those polled;

Does this issue make you worry about how Clinton might handle her responsibilities if she's elected president, or do you think it's NOT related to how she might handle her responsibilities if elected? IF WORRIED: Are you very worried about this, or somewhat worried.”

57 percent of individuals polled answered that they are either “very worried” or “somewhat worried.

According to the CBS/NYT poll, conducted July 8-12 2016, Clinton’s statements regarding her handling of classified information, which were refuted by FBI, seem to have further eroded the minority of people that still considered her trustworthy.

When asked;

“Do you think Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy, or not?”

67 percent deemed her not honest and trustworthy, including 74 percent of independents. A CBSNews.com article on the recent poll noted that the 67 percent figure is “up from 62 percent last month and the highest percentage this election cycle.

On Thursday, The Hill reported that some poll-watching Senate Democrats are beginning to worry that Trump will defeat their candidate. The article describes a private meeting attended by Clinton and several Democratic senators. According to The Hill, a Democratic Senator who was on hand said of the meeting, “Some people were freaked out, they were looking down at the polls on Real Clear Politics and asking why it was so close.” Another individual, described as a “senior Senate Democratic aide,” told the news outlet that this wasn’t the first time senators had raised concerns about how close the polls are.

While Clinton supporters are freaked out about swing-state polls, there are some others that should send them right off the deep end. A February 2008 USA Today/Gallup poll reported that 73-percent of those polled believed that the Second Amendment protects “the rights of Americans to own guns,” rather than “members of state militias such as National Guard units.” A similar CNN poll from 2009 placed respect for the individual rights interpretation of the Second Amendment at 77 percent. A 2013 Rasmussen poll found that 74 percent of respondents understood that the U.S. Constitution protects the “right of an average citizen to own a gun.

Hillary Wrong on the Second Amendment

Despite the fact that it has been repeatedly shown that the overwhelming majority of Americans understand that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms, Clinton has time and again revealed that she intends to work (with those like Justice Ginsburg) to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, which recognized this right. During the course of her most recent presidential campaign, Clinton has said that “the Supreme Court is wrong on the Second Amendment” and called Heller, “a terrible decision.” Moreover, during a recent appearance on ABC’s This Week, Clinton repeatedly refused to acknowledge that the Second Amendment protects an individual right.

When it comes to the Second Amendment, Clinton is wildly out-of-step with the American public. Clinton supporters, you have permission to freak out.

@Wild Bill,

So true.

“A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support of Paul.” – George Bernard Shaw

When we get to the point were there are more “Pauls”, then it’s all down hill. A fast track to socialism.

Hillary basically sold our national secrets to whomever would donate to her “foundation”. Her tenure as SOS was a total pay to play proposition and the security of America means nothing to her or Slick Willy. When HE was POTUS, they rented the Lincoln bedroom like it was a hotel. There will be no America, as we know it, if she is elected.

ALL the Clintons are congenital liars. They believe that all laws apply to everyone else, but them. Slick Willy, the sexual predator, is a danger to all. Hillary needs to be indicted and sent to prison.

I have some concerns about Trump, but his in your face style will be great with Congress and is desperately needed for diplomacy.
Hillary terrifies me. Everybody is worried about her emails. I am worried much more about the actual paper documents she must have sold to foreign governments and corporations.
She is a traitor and should be charged with a pile of crimes.
Should she win, Congress needs to proceed with impeachment immediately.

Bill sold us out to China, Hillary has already sold us out to terrorist countries for millions wile Sec.Of State She allowed our people to die in Benghazi while ordering our Military to stand down, they did not. This may prove to Obama and the Clintons that our troops will not turn on Americans. Rembmber her famous words. “Americans lost their lives, WHAT DOES IT MATTER” Obama has sparked the worst race releations since the 60’s and Hillary follows suit. She wants to disarm American citizens of the 2nd amendment rights. Now POLICE offiers are being murdered in the streets!… Read more »

I do not know why any woman in this country would vote for hiLIARy Clintoon. The way she has treated other women is shocking. hiLIARy pulled every string she could, and was successful, to destroy the women who came forward revealing how Bill had misused his position, even as early as governor, to pressure them for sex. So much for the sisterhood of women. hiLIARy is more than dishonest, she uses people and throws them away like paper plates.

The 2nd Amendment is the only thing she can be trusted on, as long as you are trusting her to destroy it.

Good for the American people. Clinton can not be trusted on matters when it comes to the Second Amendment I just hope the American people will keep a watch on her and put her out in November. We are a better nation than she is. Worthless SOB. Can’t let her run our nation into the ground like Obama has.

There are still a lot of people that never want to work. They vote for a living. They will vote for hiLIARy in spite of her dishonesty, influence peddling, and federal income tax evasion.
