Support for Hillary Clinton among likely Democratic Iowa Caucus participants remains strong, despite ongoing scrutiny from her political opponents over her e-mail and family foundation donations.
A Quinnipiac University Poll released today shows 60-percent of the Iowa Democrats recently surveyed would support the former Secretary of State in a run for the White House.
Peter Brown, assistant director of the poll, says that compares to 61-percent who backed Clinton in a survey conducted in February.
“Democrats are still solidly behind Mrs. Clinton,” Brown says. Today’s poll shows Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders has the support of 15 percent of Iowa Democrats, while 11-percent back Vice President Joe Biden in a possible run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
The poll numbers in Iowa are drastically different for Clinton when all voters are surveyed. Just last month, a Quinnipiac Poll involved Democrats, Republicans and independents.
“By 49 to 43 percent, that electorate — a cross-section of all Iowans — said Mrs. Clinton is not honest or trustworthy,” Brown says. Meanwhile, this new poll shows 76-percent of Iowa Democrats say Clinton *is* honest and trustworthy.
Quinnipiac University surveyed 692 likely Iowa Democratic Caucus participants for the poll released today. The survey was conducted between April 25 and May 4.
