Hillary Clinton Watch: Voters Reject Clinton Baby Bond Proposal By 2-to-1 Margin

Sixty percent (60%) of America’s Likely Voters oppose giving every child born in the United States a $5,000 savings bond, or “baby bond.” A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that just 27% support the concept suggested on Friday by Senator Hillary Clinton .

“The baby bonds proposal is one of the few mistakes Hillary Clinton has made in her campaign,” according to University of Virginia Professor Larry Sabato. “Should Clinton become the Democratic nominee, she may have handed a powerful issue to the Republican candidate .”

At a Congressional Black Caucus forum, Clinton said, “I like the idea of giving every baby born in America a $5,000 account that will grow over time. So, when that young person turns 18, if they have finished high school, they will be able to access it to go to college or maybe they will be able to put that down payment on their first home, or go into business.”

The Poll:

Survey of 1,200 Likely Voters September 28-30, 2007

Do You Favor or Oppose Giving a $5,000 Savings Bond To Every Child Born in the U.S.?

  • FAVOR – 27%
  • OPPOSE – 60%
  • NOT SURE – 13%

Rudy also slammed Hillary Clinton on her George McGovern-like Baby Bond:

He also slammed Clinton’s recent suggestion that every baby be given a $5,000 savings bond, saying the idea “comes from George McGovern,” the liberal 1972 Democratic presidential nominee who lost 49 states to Richard Nixon.

Giuliani said the “baby bond” idea would cost more than $20 billion a year for the bonds alone. Then, he said, “you’ve got to hire people to print the bonds — which I believe are going to include Hillary’s picture.”

A MAJOR GAFFE by Hillary Clinton. She was caught being a PANDER bear.

Flap can see the GOP television commercials now.
