Despite Bernie Sanders’ landslide victory in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton remains the overwhelming favorite for the Democratic nomination—and that’s good news for Republicans because of her profound vulnerability on issues of personal integrity.

Among Democratic caucus participants in the Granite State, more than a third said that the quality that mattered most to them was that a candidate should be “honest and trustworthy.” Among these voters, Bernie Sanders slaughtered Hillary Clinton by a staggering 92 percent to 6 percent. If the Republicans choose a candidate who conveys a sense of ethics and authenticity, they should be able to peel away some of these Democratic voters—as well as scoring big gains among the independents who care about the honesty issue.

With more information about the e-mail scandal dribbling out every week, and with the FBI investigation scheduled for a mid-summer climax, Hillary’s reputation for phoniness and prevarication should offer her opponents an irresistible target.

    Why isn't this woman in jail yet?

    • Jay Pole  •  Feb 29, 2016 at 1:46 pm

      Maybe because she's never actually been proved to commit any crime. (No, she did not murder Foster),

    Still. Too many people will still hold their nose and swallow the Clinton pill come November.
    But hopefully, not too many !

      I agree. I have spoken with Libo's who are so indoctrinated with the belief that all Republicans are evil incarnate, that they don't even care if Hillary is a crook (which she almost certainly is). The only question is: How many of those idiots are there.

  3. Steven Anderson  •  Feb 4, 2016 at 3:28 pm

    Oh, and then how healthy will she be by November as she runs through the gauntlet of the spiderwebs of her ever expanding scandals?

  4. Franco  •  Feb 4, 2016 at 8:08 pm

    Yeah, but we are supposed to somehow fear this pathetic, potential nominee.

    • Steven Anderson  •  Feb 8, 2016 at 12:22 pm

      I know, it's crazy, but I cannot relax until this nation pulls her last pinky finger off the cliff to her political DOOM!

    The young voters who are dazzled by Bernie don't listen closely or don't care. 65-75 percent tax rates? And that's a good thing?

    Then why isn't Ben Carson beating everybody? He has more integrity than all the others combined and he's smarter too. Integrity cannot be overrated when running for POTUS. While I would agree that he has not done well in the debates I think the current debate format very poor way to judge a candidate's mettle, knowledge or leadership. The debates were much better when administered by the League of Women Voters, et. al. The only positives Dr. Carson has been able to squeeze out of those debates is his respect for the rules (therefore the rule of law), and a subtle sense of humor that would serve a leader well.

      I like Carson, and I think he would make a good president. Unfortunately it seems we are determined to choose the polar opposite of someone with intelligence and integrity.

    What do I think? I think the political left is so far gone, so enamored of decadence, so determined to win at any and all costs that they would vote for Satan himself were he to be the candidate. There seems to exist NO character, no honor, no integrity within the entire Democrat Party. It and all of its enablers do whatever is necessary to win, no matter to what level they must stoop. I believe for an opponent to win, he had better be prepared to fight to the bitter end, and pray constantly.

      Generalize much? Seeing the entire world only in terms of "good" and "evil" is a developmental issue that seems to be popular on the right. However, people usually get over it around the age of 12 and13, about the same time they start thinking that Superman is unrealistic.

    Some 35-40% of the public would vote for Hillary even if she machine gunned 100 kids at a school because being the first woman president and not an evil Republican trumps (pardon the put) everything. Hillary Uber Alles

    • Jay Pole  •  Feb 29, 2016 at 1:44 pm

      Let's face it, Trump could be caught red-handed selling kiddie porn and his followers would love him all the more.

  9. Danny McKnight  •  Feb 15, 2016 at 4:16 pm

    To think that such a large portion of the population
    would still vote for Hillary is a very frightening thing!
    It's like some people have scales on their eyes that
    will not be removed regardless of what knowledge of
    teh Clintons' is revealed.

    • Jason  •  Feb 15, 2016 at 9:07 pm

      I don't think Hillary can win unless we nominate someone worse. Unfortunately it seems we're determined to do just that.

      • Franco  •  Feb 19, 2016 at 2:39 pm

        Fortunately, you're wrong. Only one possible nominee is worse than Clinton, and he is NOT a Republican.

    • Jay Pole  •  Feb 29, 2016 at 1:41 pm

      What has actually been " revealed" that has been proved? Trying to stick Hillary with crimes is a full-time industry, only it never seems to work out.

  10. Jay Pole  •  Feb 29, 2016 at 1:34 pm

    all of the things Hillary has been accused of over the years, from rel estate deals to murder to treason to nymphomania – which of the accusations have ever been proved? Just curious.
