Following their party’s fourth debate yesterday evening, most Democratic voters still believe Hillary Clinton will be the party’s nominee this November, but they feel less strongly than they have in recent surveys.
The latest Rasmussen Reports monthly Hillary Meter finds that 83% of Likely Democratic Voters think Clinton is likely to be their party’s presidential nominee in 2016. That now includes 43% who say it is Very Likely, down from 56% in December and 58% in November. Still, just 14% feel the former secretary of State and first lady is not very or Not At All Likely to win the nomination. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
It is important to note that the survey was conducted two nights prior and the evening of the Democrats’ latest pre-primary debate.
The number of Democrats who consider a Clinton nomination Very Likely is the lowest it’s been since September when 40% felt that way.
