Something strange is happening in the Big Apple and it’s sending a chill up the spine of conservatives everywhere.
Someone is putting up “Hillary for Mayor” posters all over the city.

Could it be…? We’ve reported on this possibility before — along with the supposed denials. And the teases.Just this past weekend, Tom Perez, the new chairman of the DNC, lent credence to the idea Hillary could even run for president AGAIN in 2020 — but it sure would be humiliating if she lost out to another upstart candidate, like…Oprah Winfrey, who is apparently idly considering the possibility.
However, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll in January, Clinton might just be able to pull off the mayoral race:“…Hillary Clinton, running as an independent, tops incumbent Bill de Blasio, running as a Democrat, 49 – 30 percent,” a release for a Quinnipiac University Poll of city voters said.
“Mayor de Blasio gets a divided 45 – 46 percent job approval rating, little changed from a 47 – 47 percent approval rating in a November 16 survey … The mayor does not deserve reelection, New York City voters say 49 – 42 percent.”
“In the Clinton – de Blasio matchup, Clinton leads 61 – 29 percent among Democrats and 45 – 31 percent among independent voters. Republicans back de Blasio 28 – 18 percent. She leads among men and women and black, white and Hispanic voters. She also leads in every borough except Staten Island, which goes to de Blasio 28 – 22 percent,” according to Quinnipiac.
“New Yorkers aren’t in love with Mayor Bill de Blasio, but they seem to like him better than other possible choices – except Hillary Clinton, who probably is an impossible choice,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
“None of the possible contenders has made any real noise or spent any money, so this race still could get interesting.”
In the time-honored parlance of New Yawk, all we can say is “OY VEY!”
In the meantime, BOLO for these…
