Hillary Clinton Favorability At Record Low

In a new Gallup poll released on Tuesday, the favorability rating of former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton hit its lowest point since Gallup began tracking it over 25 years ago.

The former secretary of state is now tied with her former opponent, President Donald Trump, whose job performance rating also sat at 36% on Tuesday, according to another recurring Gallop survey.
While Clinton started out with a favorability rating of 38% in 1992, her star quickly rose during her tenure as first lady to former President Bill Clinton, and her rating reached an all-time high in 1999 at 67%. After a slight dip during her time as a US senator from New York in the 2000s and during her first candidacy for the presidency in 2008, she again enjoyed high ratings during her tenure as secretary of state for former President Barack Obama.

Hillary Clinton’s reputation among Americans has hit rock bottom, according to a new survey.

A Washington Post–ABC News poll released Wednesday shows that 56% of Americans view Clinton unfavourably, while 41% have a favourable impression of the Democrat—the worst she’s been viewed in her time in public life.

Clinton’s previous low was in July when her favourable rating was 42%, according to the Post, while her previous unfavourable high was 55% in June. Read more


Hillary Clinton Favorability At Record Low

Hillary Clinton’s approval dipped to 36% in a December Gallup poll, the lowest mark ever measured for the former senator and first lady in the survey. Her unfavourable ratings — at 61% — also marked a new high (or low) for Clinton.

Clinton’s previous low point in Gallup data, for example, was in late August/early September 2016 — as that presidential campaign was in full roar. Typically, when Clinton is either out of the office or not running for anything, her numbers are significantly better. For the four years that Clinton served as Secretary of State, her approval rating often topped 60%.

Clinton, herself, has acknowledged this fact.

So, what explains the fact that Clinton’s numbers haven’t improved since the end of the 2016 race — and, in fact, have dipped further downward? Like with all poll findings, it’s impossible to pinpoint a single reason that explains it. But, here are 4 theories that might explain Clinton’s poll problems. Read more
