Poll: Clinton’s Unfavorable Numbers Highest Since April 2008, Jumped 8 Points Since July

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll spells more bad news for Hillary Clinton this morning:

Fully, 53 percent have an unfavorable impression of her, the highest since April 2008 in Post-ABC surveys. That mark is eight percentage points higher than in July, though not as far from a Post-ABC poll in late May (49 percent). Intense views also run clearly against Clinton, with almost twice as many having a “strongly unfavorable” view of her (39 percent) as “strongly favorable” (21 percent).

Concerns about Clinton’s falling popularity have fed uncertainty among Democrats about her electability, as well as speculation that Vice President Biden will challenge her for the Democratic nod.

The poll is generating more bad headlines for Clinton:
