Maybe the Completely Dishonest Explanation of Her State Department E-Mail Isn’t Working Out for Hillary

Via Playbook, Quinnipiac has new polls of Colorado, Iowa and Virginia. Peter Brown of Quinnipiac explains:

“Ominous for Hillary Clinton is the broad scope of the movement today compared to her showing in Quinnipiac University’s mid-February survey. It isn’t just one or two Republicans who are stepping up; it’s virtually the entire GOP field that is running better against her. 

“That’s why it is difficult to see Secretary Clinton’s slippage as anything other than a further toll on her image from the furor over her e-mail.” 

“In all three of these states, more, and in Colorado many more, registered voters say she is not honest and trustworthy,” Brown added. Voters do think she is a strong leader – a key metric – but unless she can change the honesty perception, running as a competent but dishonest candidate has serious potential problems.”
