Daily Kos Straw Poll Used as More Fuel to Belittle Hillary

Reported by Janie - May 25, 2006

We all know by now that Fox News hates Hillary Clinton, and will go to any length to smear her. Bad news for Hillary is consistently good news for Fox. This theme continued last night on Special Report with Brit Hume during his "Two Minutes of Hate" (AKA "Grapevine") segment where he publicized a Daily Kos straw poll in which Hillary showed very poorly.

Hume drearily opined:

"Readers of the Internet's largest and most influential liberal Web blog overwhelmingly want Al Gore as the Democratic nominee for president in 2008. Sixty-eight percent of respondents in a DailyKos.com survey preferred Gore — who has said he's not considering a run for the White House.

In a separate survey without the former vice president, liberal Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold handily defeated General Wesley Clark and former Virginia Governor Mark Warner with 44 percent of the vote. Presumptive Democratic favorite Hillary Clinton garnered less than 3 percent in both polls.

What's more, 25 percent of readers at Democratic blog, MyDD.com, named Clinton their least favorite potential candidate over Senator Joseph Biden and former Democratic Leader Tom Daschle."

Fox, which typically vilifies left-wing blogs, was ecstatic to see Hillary show poorly in multiple "left-wing" polls and used it to their advantage to continue the campaign of smearing her - since they are obviously so frightened of the power she wields.
