Just weeks before twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is set to hit the campaign trail for Democratic hopefuls in the 2018 midterm elections, a stunning poll is shedding new light in the Obama official’s popularity with American voters.
A recent survey published by Gallup shows the former Secretary of State’s popularity at a record low, with just 36% giving Clinton a favorable rating; down seven points from where she sat on Election Day 2016.
“Virtually no Republicans see her favorably (4%), and less than a third of independents have positive feelings about Clinton,” writes Gallup. “Clinton’s favorable rating among Democrats fell 11 points to 76% just after the election; it has not improved significantly in the ensuing months, and currently stands at 77%.

BERNIE’S BACK! The Socialist Senator HITS THE CAMPAIGN Trail in Iowa
Vermont Senator and former presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders is back in Iowa, campaigning for a former staffer running for Congress in the pivotal state and raising new questions about a possible run for the White House in 2020.
According to the Des Moines Register, the socialist Senator will deliver the keynote speech at an event for Democrat Pete D’Alessandro later this month; marking the third time Sanders has returned to the state since his failed bid for the Oval Office in 2016.
“Bernie knows that we need bold, progressive leaders in Congress if we’re going to change the direction of our country,” said D’Alessandro. “That’s why I’m proudly supporting Medicare for All, a $15/hour living wage, and free college tuition for those who work hard. We can take our country back and continue the movement Bernie started here in 2016.”
While the Senator has remained quiet about another run for the White House, he continues to lead fellow Democrats in recent polling.
The hyper-liberal Congressman still receives high-levels of support from the progressive wing of the Democratic party, many of whom feel the Senator faced an unfair fight against Hillary Clinton during the 2016 primaries.
