A brand new poll is out showing Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton hitting an all new high. However, when she gets a look at what it measures, she’s not going to be too enthusiastic.According to an ABC News/Washington Post poll, her unpopularity has hit an all-time high, putting her close to GOP nominee Donald Trump in this particular category.
Several other polls, including one from Reuters has the two presidential candidates almost neck and neck in the race for the White House, meaning they’re now close together in both categories.Yahoo News is reporting, Hillary Clinton’s unpopularity reached a new high in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, putting her on par with Donald Trump among registered voters.
The latest findings solidify their positions as the two most unpopular presidential candidates in polling dating back more than 30 years.
Among all adults, 56 percent now view Clinton unfavorably, up 6 percentage points in three weeks, compared with 63 percent who say the same about Trump.Among registered voters, the two candidates have nearly identical unfavorable ratings: 59 percent for Clinton versus 60 percent for Trump.
Clinton’s rise in unpopularity follows renewed focus on her use of a private email server and alleged conflicts of interest regarding her connections to the Clinton Foundation while she served as secretary of state. This metric rose among some of her core support groups, including women, postgraduates, Hispanics and liberals.
The shift erases a post-convention gain for Clinton, whose favorable rating ticked up from 42 percent in July to 48 percent in early August before dropping to 41 percent in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates.At the end of the day, there’s only one person Hillary can blame for this mess: herself.
New emails are discovered on a regular basis showcasing the corruption she participated in while being secretary of state, not to mention the shady dealings with her “charity.”
What’s truly impressive is how awful she’s doing while being pitted against the controversial Donald Trump, a battle she apparently thought could be easily win.Let’s hope voters remember all of this in less than 70 days.
