  • Voters Expect Bill Clinton To Be A Policymaker in Wife’s Administration

    Bill Clinton used to tell voters during his 1992 campaign for the presidency that they would be getting "two for the price of one" if he was elected, referring to his wife Hillary Rodham Clinton. Voters are strongly convinced that they'll get the same deal if Mrs. Clinton is elected to the White House this fall.

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Clinton will be involved in his wife's policy decisions if she is elected president, with 30% who say he will be Very Involved. Twenty-two percent (22%) say the former president will not be involved in Mrs. Clinton's policy decisions, but that includes only three percent (3%) who think he won’t be involved at all.
