CNN reports that Hillary Clinton’s telling a lot of friends she hasn’t ruled out 2020 run. Here’s why …

Leftists still in love with failed, bitter, resentful Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton may be in store for an electrifying 2020 presidential election season.

According to CNN senior White House correspondent Jeff Zeleny, there’s still a chance that she might jump into the 2020 election against President Donald Trump.

“Hillary Clinton is telling people that she’s not closing the doors to the idea of running in 2020,” he revealed Sunday afternoon on “Inside Politics.”

“I’m told by three people that as recently as this week, she was telling people that, look, given all this news from the indictments, particularly the Roger Stone indictment, she talked to several people, saying, ‘Look, I’m not closing the doors to this.'”

Listen:

Never mind the fact that the indictment of Roger Stone and other former Trump campaign officials had nothing to do with the bogus Russian collusion narrative touted by her and her allies.

Zeleny cautioned that this doesn’t mean “there is a campaign sort of in waiting or a plan is in the works.”

“But she is still believing that there maybe, could be a possibility under the argument of this: I won the popular vote. All of this has sort of vindicated what happened in 2016. So one close friend told me yesterday, ‘It would surprise me greatly if she actually did it,’ but went on to add she is still not closing the doors,” he continued.

It’s unclear what “all of this” has “vindicated,” since no evidence exists proving that Clinton was cheated out of an election victory. She lost fair and square.

“Now, most losing presidential candidates never totally close the doors to running for president, so I put this in that category. But I think we have to at least leave our mind open to the possibility that she’s still talking about it. The question is, if she wants to take on Trump, could she win the Democrat primary to do it? I don’t know the answer to that,” Zeleny concluded.

Polled late last year about whom they prefer to run against Trump in 2020, a thirty percent plurality of Democrats chose “none of the above,” while 25 percent chose former Vice President Joe Biden and 18 percent chose failed Democrat presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Clinton came in at 4th place with only 12 percent of votes, which was still more than former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Sens. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker received.

Look:

It doesn’t help that Clinton’s favorability has dropped even lower she was electorally demolished in the 2016 presidential election.  As of last November, her favorability was at an all-time record low of 36 percent, significantly lower than that of first lady Melania Trump.

In fact, former first ladies Rosalynn Carter, Barbara Bush, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama all scored higher than Clinton, who may very well be the most unlovable woman in America.

And as of last April, her popularity was at 27 percent, according to a WSJ/NBC poll.

“Right before the election, the share of people who viewed Hillary Clinton unfavorably was 10 points larger than those with a favorable view of her, according to the Wall Street Journal/NBC poll — a bigger gap than any other recent losing presidential candidate,” the pollsters noted at the time.

“Our latest poll is a reminder of just how unusual a figure Mrs. Clinton is in terms of her unpopularity.”

With numbers like this, it’s not clear whether she could even win a participation trophy.

Yet Clinton keeps signaling to her friends and the media that she might run. So does Biden, whom many believe would be Trump’s greatest threat. His popularity has always been high.

Clinton’s popularity has meanwhile always been … well, see for yourself:

Note that some of these tweeters are clearly liberal Democrats.
