The Clinton Juggernaut 

Forty-seven percent of Americans don’t trust Hillary Clinton — according to a CBS News poll — and more have an unfavorable view of her than favorable.

Hardly a juggernaut.

On her announcement day, she said nothing, generated nothing but luke-warm coverage that all included references to Benghazi, and Email-gate, and her poor stewardship of the Secretary of State position. Not a good start. The SNL piece mocking her announcement was particularly damning portraying her as a crazed screaming bit*h.

According to every modeling system I’ve ever used, no candidate overcomes an unfavorable rating that high with this much previous experience politically. The longer someone stays on the national scene the more locked in their unfavorable rating becomes. In other words, young candidates get large voter forgiveness and older ones do not — except for sitting presidents who usually get a lot of forgiveness from the American people. By this standard Hillary is ancient and these unfavorables are a signal this campaign is in big trouble before it even gets going.
