Majority of Americans believe email controversy will hurt Clinton’s 2016 ambitions

 

Alexandria, VA – On the heels of the controversy surrounding Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of private emails on a private server for official government correspondence, Vox Populi Polling conducted a nationwide survey to gauge Americans’ reactions. The numbers don’t look good for Clinton.

Not only do the majority of Americans, 52 percent, not trust Hillary Clinton, but 57 percent of Independents either somewhat distrust or greatly distrust her. A plurality of voters believe that Clinton intentionally withheld information and 68 percent believe that she risked American security. Americans also believe that Hillary Clinton should turn over all emails immediately. Among those polled, 55 percent of respondents believe that the email controversy is either somewhat or very likely to have an impact on the 2016 presidential race.

When asked about the Clinton Foundation receiving donations from foreign governments that were lobbying the State Department, a majority of voters believe that they were trying to buy influence with the U.S. government.

“Hillary Clinton’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week has gotten even worse,” said Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “The numbers illustrate that the controversy surrounding her emails is having a negative impact on public opinion of her. Not only do the majority of Americans not trust Hillary Clinton but they believe her use of private emails and a private server have risked American security. The response is so negative for Clinton that the majority of Americans believe it will impact the 2016 presidential election.”

METHODOLOGY: The sample size for the survey is 909 active voters in the US taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election. The margin of error is +/- 3.3%. 700 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 209 were conducted using mobile based survey technology. All interviews were conducted March 10-11, 2015 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.

Respondents say Clint Eastwood not being nominated for best director is the biggest snub, disagree with Michael Moore

 

Alexandria, VA – In anticipationof this year’s Oscars, Vox Populi Polling conducted a national survey asking a series of questions about the event. The results indicate that young viewers are excited for this year’s Academy Awards, with 43 percent of 18-45 year olds planning to tune in this Sunday. This key demographic has neglected the Oscars in recent years, but if these viewers follow through on their intentions to watch it could be a great ratings night for ABC. African American respondents also seem intent to watch the Oscars, with 34 percent saying they will tune in despite the absence of a single black nominee in an acting category.

Vox Populi also asked questions about the Oscar nominated film, American Sniper. Despite the controversy surrounding the film, American Sniper is still America’s pick for Best Picture, with 38 percent of those surveyed believing it should beat out the other nominees. Respondents also thought that the biggest snub at this year’s Oscars was Clint Eastwood not being nominated for Best Director. Further, when asked if American Sniper was a pro-war movie, an anti-war movie or something in between, 70 percent of those who have seen the film said it was something in between.

The majority of respondents disagreed with Michael Moore’s controversial statement that snipers were cowards. A total of 77 percent either somewhat or strongly disagreed with his statement. Among those surveyed, 90 percent of Republicans disagreed with his comments, along with 63 percent of Democrats. However, 37 percent of Democrats did agree with Moore’s statement. 

“Although American Sniper has been at the center of controversy, a plurality of respondents disagree with the movie’s critics,” said Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe. “Not only do a plurality of the individuals who were polled believe the movie should receive the Academy Award for Best Picture, but they also believe that the movie’s director Clint Eastwood was snubbed. They also soundly reject liberal movie maker Michael Moore’s statement that snipers are cowards.”

Methodology: The sample size for the survey is 839 active voters in the US taken from a listed sample of registered voters who voted in the 2010 or 2012 general election or registered since the 2012 general election. The margin of error is +/- 3.4%. 577 interviews were completed using automated telephone technology and 262 were conducted using mobile-based survey technology. All interviews were conducted February 9-10, 2015 by Vox Populi Polling. The total percentages for responses may not equal 100% due to rounding.
