Over a year after American voters ushered Donald Trump into the White House, Hillary Clinton’s approval ratings continue to reach record lows; with the doomed presidential nominee still struggling to connect with the public after months of book tours and speaking engagements, reports Fox News.
“Hillary’s favorability rating is down a shocking five points from last June, reaching a record-setting low of just 36 percent.”
According to a new Gallop poll, the former Secretary of State’s favorability rating is down a shocking five points from last June, reaching a record-setting low of just 36 percent. Similarly, her unfavorable rating reached a new high of 61 percent.
Clinton’s terrible stats buck decades of American tradition, where losing candidates tend to see similar numbers or actually increase favorability ratings as voters come together following a rough-and-tumble election cycle.
Hillary’s new numbers are likely related to recent revelations by former DNC boss Donna Brazile that Clinton had secretly “stolen” the Democratic primary from Bernie Sanders, seizing control of the party nearly a year before she was officially nominated. The political fallout reached the highest levels of the Democratic party, with DNC chair Tom Perez admitting they needed to re-examine their rules and regulations heading into the 2018 midterms and beyond.
