Cosmopolitan.com Readers Think Hillary Clinton Has the Attributes Necessary to Be President

​"You can look at Hillary's record and see what she's accomplished, how she's voted politics is an industry, and she knows how it works​."

http://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics/a60544/cosmopolitan-election-survey-candidate-attributes/

... A new survey of Cosmopolitan.com readers, conducted in partnership with John Della Volpe, CEO of SocialSphere and director of polling at the Harvard Institute for Politics, reveals that many young women are unconvinced by Trump's claims that his business acumen will serve the country better than Clinton's extensive political record and most agree that Clinton, not Trump, has the qualities necessary to succeed as president.

The survey of nearly 1,200 women between the ages of 18 and 34 who said they are highly likely to vote in the upcoming election, selected randomly from among Cosmopolitan.com newsletter subscribers, shows that while 63 percent of likely voters say Clinton's political experience is a net positive, 64 percent view Trump's lack of experience as a net negative.

Sixty-six percent of likely voters in the survey said that if the election were held today, they would vote for Clinton, while 25 percent said they would vote for Trump, and 9 percent were undecided. Political independents who constituted 51 percent of likely voters also exhibited strong support for Clinton, with 63 percent saying they would vote for her if the election were held today.

The findings revealed deep skepticism and anxiety among Cosmopolitan.com readers about Trump's ability to govern. For likely voters like Rachel Wakser, 30, a quality assurance analyst living in Texas, Clinton's imperfections as a candidate were balanced by her decades of experience in politics, as First Lady, Secretary of State, and New York senator. "You can look at Hillary's record and see what she's accomplished, how she's voted politics is an industry, and she knows how it works," Wakser, who is supporting Clinton, said. "What does Trump have? A record as a reality TV star and a businessman. How is he going to be able to get anything done? He's a very skilled negotiator, as he likes to remind us, but this isn't business. It's our lives and our country."

6. Pleasantly surprised at...

the many prominent Republicans publicly supporting Clinton....more every day. I still think Trump may not survive their convention. No one qualified even wants to be his VP.
