Poll: People Aren’t Buying Hillary’s Pneumonia Excuse

Hillary supporters haven’t been, for the most part, particularly concerned with Hillary Clinton’s health. They think it’s a big nothingburger, and, why can’t we talk about X (this is stage 6 of the 8 stages of Liberal discourse when they know they are busted)? Polling shows something different

(Daily Caller) Hillary Clinton’s pneumonia diagnosis, and her campaign’s subsequent handling, is hurting her already waning polls numbers.

According to the latest poll, conducted by YouGov in partnership with the Times of London, only 45 percent of American voters believe the Clinton campaign’s explanation for why she suffered a “medical episode” at Sunday’s 9/11 memorial service in New York.

Furthermore, 46 percent of voters don’t think Clinton has pneumonia at all and is suffering from a different, undisclosed illness, while nine percent said they didn’t know what to believe.

People not believing what Team Hillary has trotted out? Color me shocked!

The poll also found that, while 38 percent of surveyed voters thought Republican nominee Donald Trump was healthy enough for office, only nine percent thought the same of Clinton.

Think on that one. Only 9 percent think she’s healthy enough for office. Sadly, the Times of London poll is behind a firewall, so, we cannot get a breakdown of the metrics. But, even going loony Slate let us know a few days ago that health matters to voters

A recent Rasmussen poll conducted last week before Clinton’s early exit from the 9/11 memorial service, for example, found that 86 percent of likely voters said that a candidate’s health was important to their vote, compared with only 12 percent who said that it was not. Those figures were generally consistent across party lines, too: 89 percent of self-identified Republicans, 85 percent of Democrats, and 85 percent of independents described a candidate’s health as important. Pollsters who have asked a similar question in recent elections found similar results.

Of course, the poll also showed that Democrats didn’t care about Hillary’s health. How will her collapse affect Democrats? They probably won’t vote Trump, but, they might vote 3rd party or just not vote for president.

Will her health matter? We have a bit under two months to find out. If she doesn’t get out on the trail and appear healthy, if she looks sickly and/or low energy during the debates, if she’s caught on video having another collapse or coughing fit, well, all bets are off. Let’s end with a quote from Jimmy Kimmel

“Hillary Clinton was supposed to be in California today… but she had to cancel the trip because of illness,” Kimmel said. “You probably know Hillary was coughing a lot in public last week and then yesterday she was forced to leave a 9/11 memorial because she was feeling faint. Turns out on Friday Clinton’s doctor had diagnosed her with pneumonia but they kept it secret until this happened and they were forced to admit it. You know, these conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton’s health would be a lot harder to believe if they didn’t actually come true.”

Yeah, there’s a bit more to it, in which he’s trying to protect Hillary. Stage 5.

Hillary will be returning to the campaign trail Thursday. Which means more private fundraisers are the homes of rich people Liberals hate, and small, intimate speeches for tiny Clinton crowds. They’ll probably take away all smartphones and video recorders.

    Yeah count me as one who does not see pnemonia as her true diagnosis.

    She has a serious illness which they are hiding. This woman will do ANYTHING for power.

    She has proved it her entire life. She makes Richard Nixon look like a choir boy.

    She is paranoid, secretive, and just plain conspiritorial in how she perceives the world around her.

    Now Im sure some of that is because people have always been after her…..but then as Katnis Everdeen says….Fire is catching….when you play with fire all your life your bound to get burnt a time or two….

    right now shes in the middle of getting burnt….How bad she gets burnt is up to her and her health…..

    But Im not sure that the Clintons can even be honest anymore….they are such Pathological liars and have gotten away with it for so long that they believe they can deceive the public about anything at anytime…..

    this is just another example of their feelings that they are special and above and beyond the ordinary people they claim to represent.

  2. Dana says:

    Isn’t it amazing how, when you already have a reputation for being dishonest, people don’t believe you? The pneumonia story could be completely, absolutely, 100% accurate, but because the lovely Mrs Clinton, and the whole Clinton syndicate, have lied so often and so persistently, no one is inclined to believe her, and them, this time. If she had volunteered the diagnosis on Friday, when it was (supposedly) made, before she collapsed, if she had gotten ahead of the story, maybe more people would believe it.

    As for me, if the Clintons told me that 2 + 2 = 4, I’d have to check the math.

  3. john says:

    That pollster YouGuv that did that health poll? They have Clinton up by 5

  4. john says:

    ???? Liberals hate rich guys??? Who knew ? Sorry Teach wrong again.

  5. john says:

    Teach back in those “good old days” when Reagan was POTUS the rich (those job creators) paid a higher tax rate. As their tax rate has gone down has our country gotten better economically ? Might there be a correlation there?

  6. john says:

    How is it that ANYONE who in the past accused Obama of being soft on Putin would not vote for anyone who has encouraged Putin’s adventurism ? Trump has already said Putin was right in taking the Crimea and Teach what do you think our “allies” in europe think of Trump? Trump has already threatened our NATO allies with not living up to defending ANY Nato member that is attacked.
    Trump is as Palin usedto say “palin around with Putin”

  7. Jeffery says:

    How did Trump’s massive medical data release on Dr. Oz go?

  8. drowningpuppies says:


    Think on that one. Only 9 percent think she’s healthy enough for office.

    –Teach

    Maybe the other 91% are waiting for the other shoe to drop.

  9. Stosh says:

    Killary is deathly ill, she would have to be to actually cancel a fund-raiser. Piles of money generally energize her….

  10. Liam Thomas says:

    Look at that, the corporate media CAN look at more than emails and the Clinton Foundation!

    Newsweek is a Democratic rah rah magazine which is why its nearly bankrupt.

    However you bring up an interesting point…..

    Wait….no….Clinton is selling political favors to foreign investors. Trump runs businesses that benefit foreigners.

    I fail to comprehend how these two can even be compared…..

  11. Jeffery says:

    Clinton is selling political favors to foreign investors.

    A lie from an ignorant person. The donations to the Clinton Foundation do not benefit the Clintons.

    Trump runs businesses that benefit foreigners.

    Another lie from the same ignorant person. Trump’s businesses benefit Trump.

  12. drowningpuppies says:

    The donations to the Clinton Foundation do not benefit the Clintons.

    You misspelled shakedowns and the rest is an unimaginative lie…

  13. Jeffery says:

    For being a dick, The Don got his knuckles rapped by a woman of the cloth. The Don seemed uncomfortable – not as uncomfortable as he was in Mexico – but very uncomfortable.

    If he acts like a schoolboy caught cheating when he’s chided by a pastor, how will he act in the face of a real challenge. The Don is not used to “no”.

  14. drowningpuppies says:

    So when did Missouri go blue, little guy?

  15. Jeffery says:

    dogdickbreath,

    As always, you have proven yourself an unimaginative liar.

    Have the Clinton’s taken any money out of the Clinton Foundation? If your answer is yes, prove it.

    All the money paid into the Trump Org benefits the Trump family directly. They even use the Trump Foundation as a slush fund to pay off politicians. Genuine pay to play.

  16. Jeffery says:

    All that dogdickbreath believes to be true, is actually false.

  17. drowningpuppies says:

    Hilarious when the little guy gets caught lying he resorts to his little sophomoric name calling thingy and asks someone to find proof that he didn’t lie.

  18. Jeffery says:

    dogdickbreath,

    When you are prepared to discuss something of substance let me know, LOL. Until then, keep on suckin’ you sad little pile of dung.

  19. drowningpuppies says:

    Upset much, little guy?

    I Protected Hillary Clinton In The Secret Service – Here’s Why Her ‘Fainting’ Video Really Scares Me

    BY GARY BYRNE

  21. Liam Thomas says:

    LOLOL….it is so funny to watch John and Jeffery trying to defend this lying weasel. They sound so 2004 when the refrain was…….

    BUH>>>BUH>>>BUH>>>BUT!!! He/she is NOT BUSH!!!!!

    BUH>>>BUH>>>BUH>>>BUH>>>BUT Hillary is not The DONALD!!

    You have a billionaire….EVERY billionaire I can guarantee you has done so many rank, unrighteous things to get to the top……You dont become a billionaire and STAY a billionaire by being a nice guy.

    Every politician is a lying, cheating weasel and the only difference between A billionaire business man and a politician is the amount of money in the Bank account except perhaps John Kerry.

    So when Jeffery calls out trump…he might as well be calling out GEORGE SOROS………Who funds all the worlds chaos for his own pleasure….

    When we call out Hillary we are calling out every politician who has ever served and wants to serve….they all do it for the power, corruption and money…..they honestly could give a shit about the people they represent….if that were true they would stand up for THE STATE AND DISTRICT WHO VOTED THEM INTO OFFICE>>>>>>>>>

    The minute they hit D.C. They flip the bird to their state, district and start up an offshore bank account.

  22. Jeffery says:

    Once the Trump campaign received the candidate’s physical exam results they changed their minds about revealing the results, citing “privacy issues.” LOL

    He’s obese and takes a drug for high cholesterol (no exercise and fast food diet). The physical must have revealed something embarrassing.
