Hillary Clinton Not Very Persuasive

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Political polls put Hillary Clinton as the frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination, but it may be hard to persuade voters.

According to a new survey by sales and marketing consultant Josh Gordon, only 8.4 percent of Americans think the former First Lady is very persuasive.

By comparison, 43 percent believe Hillary’s hubby, Bill Clinton, is persuasive – the highest percentage of any living person listed in the poll.

Other persuasive leaders making the list include former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who can persuade 34 percent of Americans.

  • 31 percent believe what Colin Powell tells them.

  • 18 percent get fired up by Donald Trump.

  • 17 percent are moved to action by Bill Gates.

  • 10 percent say George W. Bush is persuasive.

    Finally, Hillary may rank low in her persuasive abilities but so does current Republican frontrunner John McCain, who is only able to persuade 11 percent of Americans.
