Zogby: Blame Hillary's 'craven lust for power,' and 'cackle'

Pollster John Zogby wants to make one thing clear about the 2016 election.

Hillary Clinton was the worst candidate possible for the Democrats and her loss is not a repudiation of President Obama.

In his post-election analysis, he said, "of those 140 million voters yesterday, 54 percent gave President Obama a positive job approval rating and more (31 percent) said they were doing better financially. He added, "a little over two weeks ago that when Hillary Clinton was leading Donald Trump by just 2 points, Mr. Obama was leading 54 percent to 41 percent in a hypothetical matchup with Mr. Trump. So let's just get that out of the way."

So it was Hillary's fault, he said, from her "craven lust for power" and even her "cackle."

Zogby blogged: "Yesterday's election was about Hillary Clinton as the wrong and possibly the worst candidate the Democrats could have nominated. First is the craven lust for power that she and her husband displayed. The sheer sense of entitlement. While she tried late to turn her message to women into 'it is our turn,' her campaign was all about her. It was very much about 'my turn' – so transparent that her slogan said it loudly and clearly: /I'm with her.'

"To be turned off by her smile and cackle was hardly being a misogynist. It was all about gestures that gave off the message that she was manipulative, arrogant, and just a tad disingenuous."

And credit Donald Trump for finally reaching the disenfranchised voters, he said.

John Zogby is an idiot. "Craven" means: cowardly, pusillanimous. HRC's quest for the White House was everything but craven. The only craven person in her story is President Obama himself.

Go back to school Zogby, you, like your polls, are stupid.

That many approving Obama's record indicates how ignorant the majority of American voters really are!

Not one mention of the 4 or so FBI investigations she was under during the campaign? Or her horrid lack of accomplishments and 4 dead men in Egypt?

Naw... couldn't be that!

6:40 Do you really believe the Obama approval rating polls? I don't. Not after Wikileaks revealed the Clinton camp giving tips to the media on how to stack the polls in her favor.

Benghazi is in Libya, not Egypt, but I get your point.

Also missing in the article was the DNC's slaying of Bernie's presidential run, in which Hillary had a personal role.

Not sure I believe it wasn't a repudiation of Pres Obama. He called her the most qualified person ever to run for the office and campaigned for her. People didn't buy it.
