Hmmm. That same 25 to 30% of people who disagree with anything related to the president keeps showing up in these polls.

Yeah. Perhaps those malcontents should be sent in for reeducation.

On a more serious note, it is interesting that about 45% of folks who said they like something about her (20% of all responses)mentioned her gender and ethnicity. That gives her a solid base of support that won't change even if things get rocky during the nomination process.
