Hillary Clinton, Enemy of the Status Quo

The headline news from today's Washington Post poll is the astonishing unpopularity of Donald Trump. His net favorable rating is -37 percent: 30 percent like him and 67 percent don't. The other candidates have net negative ratings too, but nothing close to this.

On another subject, 69 percent of respondents claim to believe that the "current political system" is dysfunctional. I don't know whether to take that seriously, or just as a generalized gripe about politics. What's interesting, though, is who would do the most to address this. Trump is the top choice, unsurprisingly, but Hillary Clinton is close behind—which is a bit surprising. It certainly suggests, along with other evidence in this poll, that support for Hillary isn't just strong, but roughly as enthusiastic as it is for anyone else.

I find it very difficult to take seriously that anyone serious would consider Drumpf - the epitome of dysfunction - as better qualified to tackle government dysfunction than either Hillary or Bernie, I like Drum's conclusion about Hillary's support being as enthusiastic as anyone else's.

But other conclusions might best be taken with a grain of salt in the circumstances.
