Okay, I know I don’t need to tell you this and Public Policy Polling probably wasted money on a poll we can liken to, “What would you rather do: Have a root canal or spend a day at the beach?”

But, poll they did and discovered —

… the voters who think Benghazi is the biggest political scandal in American history is that 39% of them don’t actually know where it is. 10% think it’s in Egypt, 9% in Iran, 6% in Cuba, 5% in Syria, 4% in Iraq, and 1% each in North Korea and Liberia with 4% not willing to venture a guess.

Personally, I think the 4% not willing to venture a guess are the smartest of the crew.Much to the chagrin of Republicans, PPP also found some other obvious numbers.

PPP’s newest national poll finds that Republicans aren’t getting much traction with their focus on Benghazi over the last week. Voters trust Hillary Clinton over Congressional Republicans on the issue of Benghazi by a 49/39 margin and Clinton’s +8 net favorability rating at 52/44 is identical to what it was on our last national poll in late March.

Meanwhile, Congressional Republicans remain very unpopular with a 36/57 favorability rating.

Yeah, she’s smiling.

She is the scandal whisperer.
