STEADY: Hillary +2 In First Post-Pneumonia Poll

Politico reports:

Hillary Clinton’s bout with pneumonia hasn’t hurt her standing among voters likely to cast a ballot in 2016, as the former secretary of state has maintained her lead over Donald Trump in a four-way matchup.

Clinton is beating Trump 42 percent to 40 percent among likely voters, according to a Morning Consult poll conducted this week. She leads Trump among registered voters by one percentage point, 39 percent to 38 percent. Before the health scare — and nearly collapsing in public — Clinton was up 41-39. The new poll suggests Clinton might be winning back voters from third-party candidate Gary Johnson, whose support has declined from 10 percent to 8 percent.

Still, the electorate is not terribly pleased with its choices in November. It might be the largest case of buyer’s remorse in recent American political history. Forty-three percent of Republicans say Donald Trump was not the best pick to be the party’s nominee, while 41 percent of Democrats say the same of Hillary Clinton, a stunning level of regret in the electorate with 51 days until Election Day.
