New Poll: Clinton’s Unfavorable Numbers Higher Than At Any Time Since 2001

A new CNN/ORC poll should be sending warning signals at Clinton HQ as scandals surrounding emails, foreign money, immense wealth, and Foundation take a toll. The poll states, “a growing number of people say she is not honest and trustworthy (57%, up from 49% in March), less than half feel she cares about people like them (47%, down from 53% last July) and more now feel she does not inspire confidence (50%, up from 42% last March).”

These poll numbers follow a memo released by America Rising PAC last Thursday showing a sharp nosedive in Hillary Clinton’s favorability numbers since leaving the State Department.

CNN Jeff Zeleny Said About the Poll:

JEFF ZELENY: Good morning. You’re right. Hillary Clinton’s shine has tarnished a little bit just two months after she entered the presidential race. Let’s look at the numbers. More people have an unfavorable view of Clinton 50% than at any time since 2001. A growing number of people feel she doesn’t inspire confidence. That’s 50% compared to 42%. Now 42% of people say she’s honest and trustworthy. That’s down from 50% in March. And only 40% of people say she cares about people like them. That’s down from 53% in March. So it appears some of those early controversies are causing perception problems for her. Certainly bringing her back from those high approval ratings during herring eight years out of politics.
