Poll: Clinton bests Obama on issues

Voters believe former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would handle a range of foreign and domestic issues better than President Obama is doing so currently, according to a new poll.

Clinton, who is widely expected to seek the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016, outpaces the sitting president on every issue surveyed by CNN and ORC.

On foreign policy, for example, 63 percent say Clinton would do a good job, while just 40 percent approve of how Obama is now handling international affairs. On terrorism, 61 percent of respondents say Clinton would do a good job, while just 49 percent approve of Obama’s handling of the issue.

Optimism surrounding Clinton extends to her domestic portfolio as well. Some 63 percent say she would do a good job handling the economy, 57 percent think she’d handle healthcare well and 56 percent believe she would be able to address illegal immigration well.

That amounts to a 25-point advantage over Obama on the economy, a 22-point lead on immigration and a 21-point lead on health care.

On environmental policy, nearly two-thirds of Americans believe Clinton would do a good job — 16 points better than Obama. And while 55 percent think Clinton could tackle the budget deficit well, just 31 percent say the same of Obama.

“That’s helpful to her chances of actually getting elected if it holds up through 2016,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said in a release. “It suggests that the President’s low marks on most issues might not drag Clinton down if she runs for the White House again.”

But the advantage could also be attributable to Clinton’s time outside the public eye.

The survey was taken before the release of Clinton’s bestselling memoir and accompanying book tour, which has thrust the former secretary of State back into the public eye.

A Gallup poll released last week incorporating the book tour showed that Clinton’s favorability had slipped 5 percentage points in the past month to 54 percent, and now sat at her lowest point since August, 2008. Just 49 percent of independents view Clinton favorably, down from 65 percent in 2012.

CNN’s survey of 1,003 adults nationwide carried a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.
