RIGHT-WINGERS NOTICE POLL RESPONDENTS BAD-MOUTHING DEMOCRATIC FRONT-RUNNER, IGNORE RESPONSE TO GOP FRONT-RUNNER

It's being reported that a new Quinnipiac poll has Donald Trump expanding his lead over the rest of the Republican field, while Hillary Clinton's lead has shrunk somewhat. But that's not what right-wingers seem to have noticed most about the poll.

* Hot Air's Jazz Shaw: "Uh oh. New poll shows first word people associate with Hillary Clinton is 'Liar'"

* Breitbart: POLL: ‘LIAR’ TOPS LIST OF 50 WORDS AMERICANS USED TO DESCRIBE HILLARY CLINTON

* Warner Todd Huston at John Hawkins' Right Wing News: "POLL: Americans Say the One Word That Best Describes Hillary Clinton is ‘Liar’"

So let's look at the poll. What they're all talking about is a free-association question: "What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Hillary Clinton?" Top three answers:

* liar
* dishonest
* untrustworthy

Hmmm, not so great. But let's consider the GOP front-runner: "What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of Donald Trump?" Top three answers:

* arrogant
* blowhard
* idiot

In other words: A pox on both your houses.

Oh, and despite inroads made by Joe Biden, Clinton still leads the nomination contest by 23 points, and still beats every Republican rival she's polled against. So there's that.

Gosh, what a BOOORRRRING reality show: single most electable pol in the country and would-be first ever female POTUS leads and leads and leads and leads and ... CAN'T ANYONE ALTER THIS NARRATIVE?

They're certainly going to keep on trying, for the entire over 14 months left to go.

Considering the vicious smear campaign waged against Clinton, this isn't a surprise.
