A new poll released by the Wall Street Journal this week shows Hillary Clinton’s popularity at historic lows, reaching unprecedented levels over a year after her surprise defeat to Donald Trump.
According to the survey, just 27% of Americans have a ‘very positive’ or ‘somewhat positive’ view of the twice-failed presidential nominee; a drop of 3% from a previous poll that showed her popularity at 30%.
“A Journal analysis of the poll notes that the poll is a reminder of ‘just how unusual’ Clinton is in terms of her unpopularity — even among recent losing presidential nominees who have typically experienced a post-election decline, but not to the extent Clinton has. At the time of the election, 40 percent had a positive view of her,” writes Fox News.
Clinton made national headlines just weeks ago -drawing fire from both Democrats and Republicans- after she slammed “white women” who voted for Trump; claiming they were forced to vote for the GOP nominee by their “husbands and sons.”
ANOTHER EXCUSE: Hillary Posts LATE NIGHT ‘APOLOGY’ for 2008 Sex Scandal
Hillary Clinton’s non-stop excuses tour continued this week, with the twice-failed presidential nominee posting a half-apology for her role in a 2008 sexual harassment scandal just as President Trump arrived at the Capitol to deliver his State of the Union address.
The former Secretary of State issued her tepid response at 8:45pm Tuesday night, blasting a recent New York Times report that claims Clinton kept a male advisor on staff for months after he sexually harassed a female subordinate during her 2008 run for the White House; defying the advice from her campaign manager and others.
“I very much understand the question I’m being asked as to why I let an employee on my 2008 campaign keep his job despite his inappropriate workplace behavior,” Clinton posted. “The short answer is this: If I had it to do again, I wouldn’t.”
Clinton then defended her decision, saying she has “always taken firing very seriously.”
“Through it all, I’ve always taken firing very seriously […] Taking away someone’s livelihood is perhaps the most serious thing an employer can do.”
“When faced with a situation like this, if I think it’s possible to avoid termination while still doing right by everyone involved, I am inclined in that direction,” she added. “I do not put this forward as a virtue or a vice – just as a fact about how I view these matters.”

CLINTON GOES NUCLEAR: Hillary Says 'WHITE WOMEN' Were Forced to Vote for Trump by Their Husbands
Hillary Clinton took her international excuses tour to a new low over the weekend; telling a packed audience at a conference in India that ‘white women’ overwhelmingly voted for Donald Trump simply because their husbands forced them to.
The former Secretary of State was speaking to the India Today Conclave event on Saturday when she found yet another excuse for her 2016 defeat to Donald Trump; this time blaming ‘white women’ of both political parties who would have voted for her otherwise.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton explained. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should,” said Clinton.
“What happened in my election, I was on the way to winning white women until former Director of the FBI Jim Comey dropped that ill-advised letter; then my numbers went down,” she added. “All of a sudden white women who were going to vote for me and standing up to the men in their lives were told she’s going to jail.”
