Rasmussen : Voters Rate Bill Clinton’s Behavior Toward Women Worse Than Trump’s

Ridgewood NJ, Hillary Clinton jumped on the release last week of an 11-year-old video in which Donald Trump makes graphic sexual comments to say it shows her Republican rival’s demeaning attitude toward women. But Trump countered that Clinton was an enabler who allowed her husband, former President Bill Clinton, to sexually assault women for years. Voters tend to agree with Trump that Bill Clinton’s behavior was worse, but not surprisingly there’s a sharp partisan difference of opinion.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 43% of Likely U.S. Voters say allegations by women who claim to have been sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton are worse than Trump’s graphic sexual comments about women. Twenty-eight percent (28%) say Trump’s comments are worse, but nearly as many (26%) think the behavior of the two men is about the same.

Rasmussen also reports that the full results from Sunday night’s debate are in, and Donald Trump has come from behind to take the lead over Hillary Clinton.

The latest Rasmussen Reports White House Watch national telephone and online survey shows Trump with 43% support among Likely U.S. Voters to Clinton’s 41%. Yesterday, Clinton still held a four-point 43% to 39% lead over Trump, but  that was down from five points on Tuesday and her biggest lead ever of seven points on Monday.

Rasmussen polls also show most Republican voters still think top GOP leaders are hurting the party with their continuing criticism of Donald Trump and are only slightly more convinced that those leaders want Trump to be president.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 57% of Likely Republican Voters believe it is bad for their party that top Republicans continue to criticize Trump, but that’s down a bit from 62% in June. Twenty percent (20%) feel the continuing criticism is good for the party, up from 15%, while 16% now say it has no impact. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

But while 66% of Republicans felt top party leaders didn’t want Trump to be president four months ago, just 51% feel that way now. Still, only 27% believe party leaders want a Trump presidency, compared to 20% in the previous survey. Twenty-two percent (22%) are now unsure of what their party leaders want.

Among all likely voters, only 17% believe most top Republican leaders want Trump to be elected president. Sixty-two percent (62%) disagree, while 21% are not sure. These findings are little changed from June.

Thirty-four percent (34%) of all voters say it’s good for the GOP that its top leaders continue to criticize Trump, up from 26%, while 42% say it’s bad, down from 50%. Seventeen percent (17%) say such criticism has no impact on the party.

  1. So, Bill Clinton, a sitting President is chasing tail in the Oval office…during the run-up to his impeachment, the defense from the Clintons was that “It’s just Sex, what’s the big deal?”. The Access Hollywood story is just about Sex too isn’t it? And, it’s about Sex that DIDN’T happen, so why isn’t that ok in the Democrat mind?

  2. The thing is…Bill Clinton is not running for President.

  3. The thing is… Bill is a rapist and Hillary is an enabler who attacks and shames women who were raped and defends men who rape 12 year olds and get them off.
    …and sadly, these are her LEAST offensive qualities.

  4. 6:03 – show the proof that Bill is a rapist. Please. Juanita Broderick retracted her story a long time ago and has conveniently resurrected it (I’d love to know who paid Juanita’s expenses for the trip, hotel. I’m guessing there’s some Trump $$ flowing in her direction) Donald Trump, on the other hand, was accused of rape IN COURT PAPERS filed by his former wife, Ivanka Trump. Hillary Clinton was a court APPOINTED attorney for a man accused of rape. She ran a legal aid clinic and she did her job; she defended him as she was told to do by the court. She laughed at how unreliable lie detector tests were. Lets not forget the victim has now set up a GoFundMe page for herself. Gee, could she be trying to make a few more bucks off of this?

  5. 4.59. You have got to be joking..bill knows where the opportunities are..
    Dynamic Duo to be feared..lots of Payback ahead..

  6. The thing is….this election is over, stop wasting our time with this crap. You should be worrying about your boy Garrett….he’s in a dogfight.

  7. Rasmussen’s polls are as bad as the LA Times.
