What Is Behind Anti-Hillary Sentiment?

See the full Gallup Poll analysis

 A recent USA Today/Gallup poll explored in detail the views of Americans who can be considered Clinton detractors – the 44% of registered voters who say they definitely would not vote for Clinton for president in 2008. The most common specific explanation given — simple dislike of her — is probably also the most basic, mentioned by 25 percent of Clinton nonsupporters. Dislike for Bill Clinton ranked second as a reason and the perception that she’s too much of a politician and flip-flops on issues ranked third. Resistance to the idea of a woman president was further down the list.
