Hillary Clinton approval rating falls to record low


Defeated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton touts the claim that she won the popular vote, but she is now more unpopular that President Donald Trump, according to a new poll just released Tuesday.

The Gallup poll reported that Hillary Clinton’s image has continued to decline since June, and is now at the lowest point yet since Gallup started measuring her popularity.

Her favorability rating now stands at a record low of 36%, and her unfavorable rating has hit a record high of 61%.

The data was based on telephone interviews conducted Dec. 4-11, among 1,049 adults.

In the same poll, President Trump received a 41% favorable rating, and First Lady Melania Trump received a 54% favorable rating.

Gallup reports that Hillary Clinton’s highest ever approval rating was 67%, in a December 1998 poll just after the House of Representatives voted to impeach her husband, then President Bill Clinton, for sexual misconduct in the Oval Office.

Since she lost the election to Trump, Clinton’s favorable ratings have continued to fall, even as she has written a book and traveled the country giving speeches about “What Happened,” the title of the book, attempting to explain why she lost.

Clinton has maintained her support among her own party, with a 79% approval rating in June 2017 among Democrats, and 78% in December 2017. But her approval rating among Independents has fallen from 33% to 27%, and among Republicans, from 11% to 5%.

Overall, she’s down to her lowest favorability rating ever, at a mere 36% nationwide.
