It was news yesterday that Hillary Clinton's polling numbers had dropped. There were fretting and warnings about her future as a presidential candidate. Some had the good sense to note that early polls don't mean much. The electorate hasn't focused on the 2016 elections. The fear is that the perception of weakness with voters might be enough for Republicans to attack and for other Democrats to start running. Both of these outcomes have happened but they haven't made much difference yet. The perception of Hillary and her husband has to turn more sour than it is now for there to be real danger to her candidacy. So far, that is missing. If poll numbers remain low during the months to come, there will be worries. Today, there is no need to overhaul her campaign strategy.
