Another day, another poll headline with Hillary Clinton. This time around though we’re looking at a poll in which likely voters chose the Democratic nominee they’d least like to see win the presidency. Keep in mind this includes voters of all persuasions.

Report from the Washington Examiner:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on top of yet another poll today. But it’s not the result her team was hoping for.

In a new Rasmussen Reports poll, Clinton tops five others as the one candidate voters don’t want to win in 2016.

“Regardless of whom you would vote for, which candidate would you least like to see win the Democratic nomination in 2016? Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Martin O’Malley, Andrew Cuomo, Antonio Villaraigosa or Cory Booker?” Rasmussen asked.

The results: Clinton 27 percent, Biden 24 percent. The rest were in the 15 percent to 17 percent, reported Rasmussen. Women are more enthusiastic supporters of Clinton than men are. Men are more likely to hope she doesn’t get the Democratic nomination.

The bright spot for Clinton is that she’s on the other end of the poll when Democratic voters are asked who they’d like to see as their nominee:

Clinton also topped the poll as the one Democrats most want as their nominee.

Sizing up the contrary findings, Rasmussen said: “Hillary Clinton is the Democrat voters most want to see win her party’s presidential nomination in 2016 — and least want to see win that nomination, too.”

Hillary Clinton will be a polarizing figure in 2016. She’s been around for decades on the national scene and Americans have developed pretty strong love/hate relationships with her and, perhaps, the Clintons in general.
