Shock Poll: 71% of Democrats believe Clinton should Continue Running even if Charged with Felony

Hillary Clinton seems quite nonchalant these days when facing questions about the FBI investigation into her improper use of a private email address and server while serving as Barack Obama’s secretary of state.  Perhaps Clinton simply believes that she will not be held responsible for her actions — and why should she?  She has never been held responsible for any of her transgressions in the past.

Clinton can also breathe a sigh of relief because — at least among her base — voters don’t seem to care if the Democratic candidate is a felon.

Clinton was strongly criticized in a State Department inspector general report last week about her email use.

The report found repeated warnings about cybersecurity were ignored and staffers who expressed concerns were told “never to speak of the Secretary’s personal email system again.”

Yet, this seems not to be a big issue among Democrats. The Rasmussen poll released Tuesday found 71 percent of Democratic voters believe she should keep running even if indicted, a view shared by only 30 percent of Republicans and 46 percent of unaffiliated voters. Overall, 50 percent of those polled said she should keep running.

The FBI investigation into her email practices is still ongoing. Democratic primary rival Bernie Sanders has avoided commenting specifically on that probe, but campaign manager Jeff Weaver on Wednesday questioned whether she could keep going if an indictment comes down.

It is not unreasonable to think that if the FBI does hand down an indictment of Clinton for the email scandal, that Barack Obama’s final act as president would be to pardon her.  And if Clinton enjoys enough support among the hoards of sheeple, America could be electing its first female president — and its first felon president — come November.
