Re: Ignorance
Hillary is untrustworthy, dishonest, incapable of understanding security processes or procedures and would continue to destroy US government security.  She simply doensn't understand or care.

Polls Only Targeting Supporters Always Achieve the Desired Outcome
Syaing that Clinotn is the most likely canidate to protect us in the event of a cyber breach is just plain silly.  If she can't grasp the importance of classified emails being protected how could she understand the layered security and the precautions required to secure other critical data.  

If we are talking about the candidate with the highest technical acumen without question that is Carly Fiorina.  She also happens to be the person with the largest network of global leaders and understanding of global economics.

Ignorance
Hillary Clinton did nothing to protect an American Embassy from a Benghazi attack, people think she's going to protect the US from a Cyber attack? 

She intentionally circumvented email security protocols, but people think she's the best one to enforce them?

One of the surveys said that 47 percent of millenials said that she would be a good choice as a cybersecurity champion (paraphrasing).  Are these the same millenials that think Snooki would be a good candidate for Mother of the Year?

Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.

dscott, you are exactly right.  Anyone placing trust in her at this point hasn't been paying attention.

Ignorance
The choice as Hillary being the one to most likely protect us from a cyberattack highlights how ignorant the American people are about security, and how gullible they are to her rhetoric. Hillary's email server was likely hacked, leaking untold information into the hands of China/Russia. Hillary had the briefings, and everyone who has had those same briefings and dealings with classified material knows she is lying. You would think by now the people would be wise to her lawyer talk about how the emails were not marked classified, which does not mean they were not classified. She is the last person I would trust to protect my secrets.
