In U.S., Bill Clinton at His Most Popular

Solid majorities of whites, independents, and all age groups view him favorably

Two-thirds of Americans — 66% — have a favorable opinion of former U.S. President Bill Clinton, tying his record-high favorability rating recorded at the time of his inauguration in January 1993. Clinton nearly returned to this level of popularity at two points in his second term, but has generally seen lower ratings, averaging 56% since 1993.

Clinton’s popularity could make him one of the more valuable speakers at the 2012 Democratic National Convention later this summer, where he will reprise his 2008 convention role as booster-in-chief for Barack Obama. Hillary Clinton’s favorable rating was also 66% in Gallup’s most recent measure. Obama himself is viewed favorably by 54% of Americans.

Along with his record-high favorable rating, Clinton now has a near-record-low 28% unfavorable rating, according to the July 9-12 Gallup poll. The only times since 1993 that his unfavorable rating has been lower — 26% and 27% — were in January of his inaugural year.

This is the same guy that Obamanation wanted to purge from the Democratic party. If he could run for a third term he would win in a landslide.

Eat shit and die, Obots!

Miss me?

    My favorite Big Dawg moment:

    • this one had me until she thanked “President Obama.” I just kept thinking about our lives before 2008 and how different our world looked back then……

      Obama is likeable enough but I’d rather go to Hillary’s beer summit.

      Sorry about the Huff link but they actually have a picture of what Hillary was doing earlier in the day.

      • leslie says:

        Sorry, I can’t go with the “Obama’s likeable enough” even when it is snark. From what I know about him – what we all know about him – he isn’t likeable at all.

        • Karma says:

          No problem. I meant it with the same sneering contempt as he dished out to a sitting US Senator and former First Lady. He doesn’t deliver respect….he shouldn’t expect any in return. 😉

          Good thing that the Romney campaign signaled early on that they would throw elbows too.

    • Erica says:

      54% is too high for comfort, in my opinion. I really want him out of office and that statistic, if real and not skewed, is not encouraging.

      Oh, and Big Dawg and Obama’s booster-in-chief, puhleeeaassee!

      • DM says:

        I want to believe (maybe I’m wrong) that Bill Clinton is doing this to make sure Hillary can run in 2016 if she wants to. Obama would leak that Bill Clinton refused to be part of the convention if Bill refused.

        Also, I think it’s dumb to have an ex-president give a speech to support a sitting president. That kind of support works for a candidate that is trying to unseat a president from the opposing party.

    • DM says:

      I think people are afraid to be called racist andI lie about liking Obama.

    OT- Queue up the “Romney is owned by the Koch brothers” headlines. Romney has just said that, if elected, he would let the subsidies for wind energy projects expire. William Koch owns a place in Osterville, which is on Cape Cod. He put a lot of money into fighting Cape Wind, a project to put several large wind turbines in Nantucket Sound. The opposition to the project has created some strange bedfellows. Koch and Romney, but also John Kerry and Ted Kennedy. But I bet when this makes the rounds, all of the “news” will about Koch and Romney.

  4. Love Big Dawg- but still not voting for that chicago con man from hell.

    It’s me — my lap top crashed so I’m on my phone (probably will not be commenting much until lap top is back because this little keyboard kills me). Anyway I don’t understand Obama’s thinking here — yes Bill is popular — I’d vote for him myself if he was running — and while he certainly helped stumping for Obama in 2008, now that Obama has a record, sending Bill out front & center just reminds everyone what a failure Obama is and, further, that (as Romney says) “it didn’t have to be this way.” (although in this case I mean we could have had Hillary. Don’t get me wrong — I realize Obama *wants* people to see Bill & think Obama will do what Bill did (i.e. Obama is trying to crib Bill’s record) I just don’t see *anyone* falling for that. Remember when Obama let Bill take over that press conference in December 2010? Most people felt pleased to have a guy who looked like a President up there — that didn’t exactly make Obama look *good* — in fact, it did the opposite. Having Bill standing next to Obama just underscores what an over-his-head amateur Obama is, IMO — and I don’t think I’m the only one.

    • leslie says:

      For the first time in my life I’m not watching the Democrat convention. Well, that’s not true. The first time was the last one. but this is the first time i’m not watching even though Big Dawg is the featured speaker. And I’ve traveled miles and paid money to see/hear him speak.

      • I’m with you Leslie—-I just can’t bear to watch Bill cozy up to Obama. I just can’t understand Clinton’s motivation for making this speech….

        • cj says:

          I don’t know if he’s credible but Dick Morris told Hannity that his sources told him that Bill doesn’t want the blame to fall on him if Obama loses so he’ll speechify for him, but he’ll cast his vote for Romney.

          I might listen, I haven’t really decided yet.

    From your link….

    It’s just one laugh after the other. 😆

    The difference in Clinton’s popularity then and now is underscored by changes in his favorable rating among different demographic groups. The biggest improvement has occurred among Republicans, with his favorable rating registering 44% today vs. 18% in August 2008 — a 26-percentage-point increase. At the same time, his popularity has improved at a rate similar to the sample average of 14 points among men, women, whites, nonwhites, independents, and Democrats.

    Bottom Line

    In 2008, former President Bill Clinton was a crucial symbol of party unity at the Democratic National Convention as Obama sought to win over former supporters of Hillary Clinton. While not wildly popular with any key voting blocs at that time, he sent an important intra-party signal that it was time to come together around Obama.

    By contrast, Clinton’s solid popularity with Americans today might help attract new support to Obama from outside the party, particularly from whites, men, seniors, and political independents — all important voting groups that Obama is struggling with in trial heats against Republican Mitt Romney.

    #NBCFail continues. The network sports coverage of the Olympics didn’t recognize Evander Holyfield.

  8. yttik says:

    I can just picture Bill Clinton at the DNC. People are going to see him and go, “ahh, that’s what peace and prosperity looked like.” Then they’re going to look at Obama and go, “Wait, WTH were we thinking??”

    Houston Chronicle:

    The phone rang before sunrise. It woke Craig Patty, owner of a tiny North Texas trucking company, to vexing news about Truck 793 — a big red semi supposedly getting repairs in Houston.

    “Your driver was shot in your truck,” said the caller, a business colleague. “Your truck was loaded with marijuana. He was shot eight times while sitting in the cab. Do you know anything about your driver hauling marijuana?”

    “What did you say?” Patty recalled asking. “Could you please repeat that?”

    The truck, it turned out, had been everywhere but in the repair shop.

    Commandeered by one of his drivers, who was secretly working with federal agents, the truck had been hauling marijuana from the border as part of an undercover operation. And without Patty’s knowledge, the Drug Enforcement Administration was paying his driver, Lawrence Chapa, to use the truck to bust traffickers.

    So his driver is dead, his truck damaged and out of service for over three months which cost him a bunch of business.

    And the government offer to compensate him for damages?

    Zip. Zero. Zilch. Nada planada.

  10. Jesus! Maybe it’s the wine, but the folks at the Petition to Draft Hillary Clinton FB page are starting to piss me off. Here’s their latest fantasy, from the page owner, supposedly some former Dem bigwig:

    But the failing world economy is fact. And Europe’s troubles are reaching our shore. When the impact is felt, there will be no recovery for an incumbent. I am betting it will happen BEFORE the DNC Convention. However, if it happens after Charlotte and Obama is rendered politically impotent, the Party can convene an emergency convention before the general election. Such a nuclear option is designed to accommodate incapacitation of a nominee because of sickness or death. However, if the candidate is politically incapacitated, the party may decide to act.

    Can you believe it? He actually thinks some party insiders will convene an emergency convention to select Hillary to run. As if!

    So I replied:

    It’s a cute fantasy, but it’s not going to happen. No one is going to unseat Obama, least of all Obama himself. The convention will go on as planned, and as has happened for 220-some odd years. And Obama will lose, as incumbents in hard economic times always do. It’s a fact.

    I love Hillary so much, but I wouldn’t want her to win this way. Can you imagine the blow back she would get? How her every action would be cast in doubt and/or accusation? Ban me if you must, but Hillary is not on the table because Hillary doesn’t want to be on the table and no amount of fantasizing will change that. And I respect her choice, as should everybody who calls themselves a supporter. It’s her life, after all. 2016 will be a good opportunity for her, unless Romney can turn it around, in which case 2020 is still good.

    “According to this article printed in, not having a Facebook account could be the first sign that you are a mass murderer.(German) As examples they use Norwegian shooter Anders Breivik, who used MySpace instead of Facebook and the newer Aurora shooter who used adultfriendfinder instead of Facebook. They already consider those with Facebook accounts, who lack friends to be suspicious, but now they are suggesting that anyone who abstains from Facebook altogether may be even more suspicious.”

    I don’t do Facebook

    Now they are just discovering Obama has “Slave Roots”!

    BFD – Me to, and a couple of milleniums before him – Jewish Slavery. Also, I am an American Indian.

    Obama, you ain’t got jack shit on me, so stfu!

    61% of whites have favorable view of Bill Clinton. That proves he’s racist, just like Hillary. (snark)
