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.

The national survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on July 26-27, 2016 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.Rasmussen subscribers can log in to read the rest of this article.
