Voters Now Rate Clinton, Trump Equally Prepared for Presidency

The same day FBI Director James Comey laid out a damning indictmentless indictment of Hillary Clinton for her “extremely careless” behavior with regard to her private email server, President Obama took to the campaign trail with the former secretary of state and claimed “there has never ever been any man or woman more qualified for this office than” her.

But it seems even voters aren’t buying it.

According to a new Rasmussen survey, voters now think Clinton is no better prepared for the presidency than her opponent, Donald Trump.  

Most voters have difficulty swallowing President Obama's superlatives for Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail last week and now rate she and Donald Trump equally when it comes to their preparedness for the White House.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 22% of Likely U.S. Voters agree with Obama's statement that "there has never ever been any man or woman more qualified for this office than Hillary Clinton." Sixty-five percent (65%) disagree with the president's statement. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided.
