    I haven't got a clue...

    What is the difference between "I haven't got a clue..." and " I don't have the faintest idea..."

    Thanks.

    Casually speaking, they mean the same.

    "I haven't got a clue who she is"

    " I don't have the faintest idea who she is"

    There are subtle differences in the words clue and idea USED THIS WAY.

    Thank you, Susiedqq. But is there any difference when it comes to the degree or how do you call it?
