Hillary Clinton’s Poll Numbers Just Keep Getting Worse
According to a new Washington Post/ABC national poll released today, Hillary Clinton has dropped 21 points since July. This is just the latest in a string of polls that show Clinton in a downward spiral.
On Sunday, CBS News released a poll conducted by YouGov showed Hillary Clinton trailing Bernie Sanders (I-VT) by 10 points in Iowa, 43%-33%, and by 22 points in New Hampshire, 52%-30%.
A Quinnipiac University poll released on September 10 showed Sanders getting 41% of the vote in Iowa to Clinton’s 40%.
Clinton’s troubling poll numbers dominated the morning news. MSNBC’s Morning Joe panel found the CBS News poll rather disturbing for the Clinton campaign.
Willie Geist noted: “There is no question anymore that the accumulation of stories about the email server, about her trustworthiness, all that is taking its toll.”
NBC’s Savannah Guthrie called the new polls “surprising” and said Hillary Clinton’s deficit to Sanders is “substantial.”
And on CNN, Michaela Pereira said that Hillary Clinton’s numbers are headed in the wrong direction.
Despite Clinton’s claims that her email scandal isn’t impacting her campaign, polls would suggest otherwise.
