68% of Democrats find Clinton trustworthy, only 35% of Independents and 4% of Republicans. By gender

only 30% of men and 41% of women find Clinton trustworthy. By education level, only 37% of those with a college degree and 35% of those without a degree find Clinton trustworthy.

Clinton's trustworthiness might be enough to barely win a primary because Democrats are the only demographic where a majority of voters do not distrust her, but the voters' lack of trust in Clinton would be fatal in the general election because voters consider honesty and trustworthiness to be key issues when choosing a candidate:



With a virtual monopoly on "establishment" support, the constituency Clinton lacks is the voters.

14. I hate the idea that we might nominate the least trusted candidate in either party and thereby help

put a Republican in office.

22. That's generally how it works. Generally the voters have a say in selecting most of those delegates

3. Any port in a storm

Don't hang your stetson on that trust worthy thing.

It's mostly a result of right wing scandals that have no basis.

Give me the name of someone else who has had as much bull shit slung at her and has survived to lead the pack in a primary campaign.

5. Still wondering how she will work with republicans

Given that they "sling bull shit at her" and produce "right wing scandals"... Doesn't seem like the republicans will give her the time of day if she is POTUS--if you disagree please explain why and how she would be able to mend her long history of fighting with the Republican Party.

9. Republicans will work with her just like they worked with Obama - never.

They will not work with Sanders or O'Malley, either.

21. Do you actually believe the current Republican party will work with any Democratic President?

That's not going to happen. It hasn't happened during Obama's two terms and it won't happen during the first term of whichever Democrat we elect next November.

6. Clinton has not received rougher treatment than Obama or Kerry or Gore or her husband, but it has

cost Hillary more in terms of trustworthiness than it affected Obama or Kerry or Gore or her husband.

Clinton has no crossover appeal.

Clinton has no significant appeal to independents.

I will vote for her if Sanders does not get the nomination, but her appeal is not even enthusiastic among Democrats:

There’s cause for concern in Hillaryland, the constellation of Democratic advisers, supporters and politicians counting on the former secretary of state to lead the party to a sweeping victory next November.... The worries of some Clinton insiders are focused on the general election. There is an “enthusiasm gap.” Surveys of voters at this early stage of the campaign show that young people, independents, possibly even blacks and Hispanics are not excited about her candidacy.... Mrs. Clinton has a striking problem with young voters. A recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll showed that a solid plurality of young voters has a negative view of Mrs. Clinton. She did even worse in a Bloomberg Politics national poll.

Here is a result to unnerve her Brooklyn campaign headquarters: Both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton get a 60 percent favorable rating with 18-to-29-year-olds. She gets 35 percent approval and 57 percent unfavorable.

In the last presidential election, 19 percent of the voters were in that age cohort, which Mr. Obama won, 60 percent to 37 percent, providing his overall margin. There was a substantial decline in the number of young voters in the off-year elections, probably costing Democrats a couple Senate seats; a similar drop-off in 2016 might be decisive in a close election.

Mrs. Clinton also has big problems with independent voters. In the nomination contest, she’s running well ahead of her chief challenger, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. But she loses to him among Democratic-leaning independents. Over all, independents are negative about her by a margin of better than 3-to-2.

In 2012, almost three in 10 voters were independents, and Mr. Obama came close to splitting that vote with Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate.
...
Interviews with voters and focus groups suggest that Mrs. Clinton has a “likability” problem; more than a few young voters, particularly, as well as some independents, say that they are turned off by her persona and that she seems old hat. In a famous exchange in a 2008 debate, Mr. Obama cracked, “you’re likable enough, Hillary.”

Another liability is that, as of now, many voters, according to polls and focus groups, do not find her trustworthy. The public’s negative view was reinforced by her clumsy handling of the controversy over her private email server as secretary of state.

10. whether or not you buy it is irrelevant

The fact is there aren't enough Democrats to put her over the top and with problems with a significant portion of Democrats she's going to need support from constituencies who don't look likely to give it to her.
