Tulsi Gabbard got a boost following Hillary Clinton's attacks on her

(CNN)Hawaii Rep.Tulsi Gabbard appeared poised to be one of the many forgotten 2020 Democratic presidential candidates. That was until former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton decided to call her out on David Plouffe's podcast.

After Clinton's attack on Gabbard -- calling her "favorite of the Russians" -- the Hawaii Democrat's poll numbers rose, earning her a place on the November debate stage. Before the Democratic debate on October 15, Gabbard looked like she was going to miss November's debate. Candidates needed to hit at least 3% in four qualifying polls. Gabbard had never hit that 3% mark in any qualifying poll this entire year. Then Clinton's remarks came on October 17.

Following Clinton's podcast appearance, Gabbard got a qualifying poll from Suffolk University Iowa poll that was taken partially before Clinton's comments and partially after. She then reached 5% in a CNN/University of New Hampshire poll conducted the following week. Over that same period, Suffolk gave Gabbard another qualifying poll. Finally, she earned 3% in a Quinnipiac University poll from Iowa this past week.

Four qualifying polls means Gabbard is in the November debate, where she'll be able to spread a message that Clinton is not a fan of. It is, of course, difficult to say with certainty that Clinton's remarks caused Gabbard to rise, but it's difficult to escape the likelihood given the polling data. Gabbard headed into the October debate with little momentum and the debate didn't seem like it was going to help her. Her performance was not widely hailed (as it was for Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg).

An Ipsos Knowledge Panel poll taken after the debate but before Clinton's remarks seem to back up the reviews of a mediocre Gabbard performance. Among those who debated in October, she ranked lowest for the percentage of Democratic primary voters who said they'd consider voting for her. Gabbard had the lowest favorable rating and worst net favorabilty (favorable - unfavorable) rating. She also had the highest jump in unfavorable ratings comparing Ipsos poll taken before and after the debate with the same respondents.

Then in nearly perfect succession, Clinton spoke about Gabbard and Gabbard started hitting the debate threshold in qualifying polls...

1. Hillary never directly called out Tulsi as a Russian favorite

 

However, Tulsi didnít waste any time taking the bait.

That alone would appear to disqualify her for higher office. There never seems to be a shortage of outspoken Hillary haters.

To be clear, I do not support Tulsi Gabbard, but all Hillary did was give her the attention she was looking for.

2. RW'ers flocking to Tulsi, no surprise.

 

RT has worked long and hard to make that happen to disrupt the process by showing some (totally fake) success and then having her run as 3rd party. Anyone who thinks that isn't going on, isn't paying close attention.

And that was happening before Clinton did her thing. She was in minuscule single-digits and had the worst debate of anyone on the stage last month.

14. This is simply not true, as has been pointed out numerous times

 

There is extremely little in her core platform that RWers would support. She is overall very left wing and basically supports MFA. The RW only uses her as a disruptive force and pays attention to her as she attacks her fellow Democrats and especially Clinton.

She didnít ďattackĒ Tulsi. She told the truth and Tulsi confirmed it.

She went up in the polls because the Russians are spending a shitload of money promoting her and are, once again, showing how effectively they can manipulate confused Democrats into turning their fire on Hillary Clinton instead of where it should be.
