Poll: Majority Disapprove of Decision Not to Charge Clinton on Emails

ABC NewsA majority of Americans disapprove of the FBI's recommendation not to charge Hillary Clinton with a crime over her handling of email while secretary of state, and a similar number in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll say the issue leaves them worried about how she would handle her responsibilities as president if elected.

Most also say the email controversy won't affect their vote in the presidential election. But 28 percent say it leaves them less likely to support her, versus 10 percent who say it makes them more likely to do so.

Toss in the undecideds and it's 2/3.

Perhaps because of that, Ras tells us voters view Trump as qualified as Cacklepants. A very significant hurdle overcome.

Some hit harder than others.

How is this Trump's fault?

It's not, if I read you correctly. The point is, she's still in trouble; that's why she was on with Blitzer over the weekend doing her Feldwebel Schultz act (or was it Frank Costello?).

The line "Most also say the email controversy won't affect their vote in the presidential election", but now we're getting to the time of hard choices and that little niggling doubt suddenly counts when they walk into the voting booth - where we are told a lot of people make their final decision.

And it's interesting there's a 3 - 1 split among those who say it would affect their vote.

It seems there have not been any prez election polls reported since the Comey coverup on 7/5/16. Can that be possible? or are they scared to do polls now and so they have decided to put off any polls until the email/Comey coverup news is really old news?

AJ, pollsters are waiting for Dallas to sink in because they know she "did the right thing"

Massachusetts republican governor just signed the first transgender bathroom bill in the country!

How exciting.

Massachusetts-laws happen here first and eventually get to the federal level.

Sorry haven't been posting, but want to know I miss you all terribly my little doves.. It is heavy travel season for hubby and I. All the usual haunts-Ptown; Nantucket, Berkshires, MV, Fire Island, Ogunquit, Vermont the schedule can be exhausting, but also divine.

If you haven't, you must do a B&B escape to Vermont. The quaint, liberal Vermont towns are just delish and you can't swing a cat without hitting some lesbian organic farming couple.

We are doing a week at Acadia National Park which will be absolutely scrumptious.

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!

Keep your heads and up and keep reaching for the stars!

tits.

I recently made a resolution to use high quality words like dipshit at least once a day. So here goes:

One of the commenters here is a real dipshit. And he will always be a dipshit. I'll let you guess who I mean.

Yeah, telling white people it's their fault is really gonna help.

We may see a stop to that in the future.

In the meantime, don't go into some women's room. All those new firearms in circulation some crazy broad may want to use it.

I was riffing on the Spike Lee movie title. Maybe I should have written "Do The Wright Thing"?
