Public Policy Polling did a recent poll in Alaska to see how Hillary Clinton would do in that state against a slate of Republican candidates. According to that poll, she would lose to every potential candidate except one: Their favorite daughter and renowned quitter Sarah Palin:
PPP’s newest Alaska poll finds that Hillary Clinton would have a chance at winning the state in 2016…but only if Sarah Palin was the Republican candidate for President. Clinton would lead Palin 49/40 in a hypothetical match up. Only 18% of Alaskans think Palin should run in 2016 to 77% who think she shouldn’t, and even among Republican voters 72% think she should sit out the race.
Clinton trails the other Republicans we tested, although she would make the state closer than it’s been in a while. Chris Christie leads her by 8 points at 46/38, Jeb Bush leads her by 7 at 49/42, Rand Paul is up 6 at 49/43, Marco Rubio has a 3 point advantage at 45/42, and Paul Ryan leads by a single point at 47/46.
Maybe they figure she’ll quite halfway through her first term if she thinks she can earn more money from a reality show instead.
