For months, Democrats have run around claiming that Donald Trump is the most unpopular presidential candidate in modern history. Well, new polling has just destroyed that liberal narrative!
In a new poll, Hillary Clinton is now just as unpopular as Trump, which comes after damaging new details about her email scandal and the Clinton Foundation.
Approximately 46 percent of registered voters said they had a favorable opinion of Clinton in early August, dropping eight points to 38 percent in the latest survey, with nearly six in 10 (59 percent) holding an unfavorable opinion of the former secretary of state, an increase of seven points from earlier in the month.
Clinton’s favorability among all women surveyed swung dramatically negative over the last month, going from a net positive 11 points (54 percent to 43 percent) to a net negative seven points (45 percent to 52 percent), while her standing among men also decreased to a lesser degree.
Clinton’s standing also fell among Democrats, going from a net positive 76 points (87 percent to 11 percent) to 61 points in late August (79 percent to 18 percent). Independents’ approval of Clinton fell by eight points over the last month, 39 percent to 31 percent, while Trump’s support among that group fell by a similar margin.
Registered voters’ overall opinion of Trump held steady over the last month, with 37 percent saying they had a positive view of the Republican nominee and 60 percent a negative one. The previous poll showed 36 percent favorable and 61 percent unfavorable for Trump. Among men, Trump’s favorability has fallen by six points in the last month, as women voters’ views of him have ticked upward, from 26 percent favorable in early August to 33 percent in the latest poll.
