Email And Clinton Foundation Allegations Cause Hillary To Nosedive In Popularity, Unfavorability Hits Record Low
In a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, Clinton’s unfavorable rating reached a new high. Among all adults, 56% now see Hillary unfavorably, that’s up six points in just the last three weeks. In regards to registered voters, Clinton scores a 59% unfavorability rating, putting her on par with Trump who has a 60% rating. This makes Clinton and Trump as the two most unpopular presidential candidates in polling dating back more than 30 years. Do these two realize that they’re supposed to score higher in the favorability category and not the unfavorable category?
Clinton is even struggling of late with women. Hillary, who has professed that she is playing the woman card, has been struggling with her favorability amongst females. Early August Clinton saw a 54-43% favorable-unfavorable rating (+11 points favorable) with women, but in late August the ratings flipped. The Democratic presidential nominee now has 45-52% rating, dropping 18 points in only a few weeks.
For Clinton, who has had an extensive history in politics dating back to being the First Lady in 1993 to New York Senator to Secretary of State, this is a record low and her worst unfavorability rating that she has had in her career.
A Reuters poll shows that Trump has made an incredible comeback in the past week. Down by 12 points on August 22, this poll shows that the two presidential candidates are virtually tied on August 28.
These new souring opinions in the polls appear to be the backlash of allegations that Hillary wooed foreign governments and huge corporations by granting them access to her in exchange for large donations to the Clinton Foundation while she was the Secretary of State. Then there is the constant email scandal that Clinton cannot seem to shake. And speaking of Hillary’s emails, a New York Post report from Wednesday states that Clinton sent an email with classified information months after she had already stepped down as Secretary of State. These new accusations come only a day after State Department attorneys announced that they had recovered 30 previously deleted emailed that pertained to Benghazi on Hillary’s private server. On numerous occasions and under oath, Clinton had assured the public, Congress and FBI agents that she turned over all work-related communications in late 2014.
So in other words, Hillary and Trump are as popular as the gunman who shot and killed Harambe at this point. The 2016 presidential election is a complete dumpster fire.
Only 68 days, 10 hours and 28 minutes until the election.
