As a presidential candidate, it’s not your favorability in every State that matters, but rather your favorability in the swing States. And by that criteria, the numbers for Hillary are in, and they don’t look good for her. To quote from the Washington Post:
A poll released Sunday from NBC/Marist reinforces one from last week by Quinnipiac University that found her to be as unpopular as Donald Trump in key swing states. In Iowa and New Hampshire, Clinton’s net favorability — those who view her positively minus those who don’t — was negative-23 and negative-20, respectively.
And that’s not all – Hillary has a negative-3 favorability rating nationally.
What makes this particularly interesting is that her polling numbers are “as unpopular as Donald Trump,” when the media has hounded Trump, but hasn’t bothered to do as much as ask Hillary a serious interview question, let alone attack her record. Despite the media blackout on Hillary’s record and donors, among other controversies, her popularity is particularly low among the group of voters that matters most: independents. Republicans will always vote Republican, and Democrats will always vote Democrat, so any election is essentially up to the whim of the independents (hence why swing States matter).
Among independents, Hillary maintains a negative favorability rating of 24. While her popularity among Democrats may aid her in winning the Democratic primary, the polls are not on Hillary’s side when the time comes for a national election. And considering that all a Republican candidate has to do is maintain a favorability rating that isn’t in the red, this election could already be in the bag for the GOP.
