Gallup's question: "Would you like to see Bill Clinton play an active role in policy-making in Hillary Clinton's administration, or not?"


Yes: 53
No: 44
No opinion: 3



(518 adults sampled, so the margin of error is +/- 5 points).

This is a weird question, but the answer gets at a point the Clinton campaign likes to make: Democrats would be just fine if Bill Clinton played a larger-than-usual role in a Hillary Clinton administration. I'm discounting the 53% figure here because of the MOE, although my sense is that some of the 44% are HRC supporters who don't want a co-presidency. The rest are probably Republicans and those independents who don't like the Clintons.
