Washington Post-ABC Poll: Hillary Clinton’s Unpopularity Hits Record High And Majority of Women Now Hold Unfavorable Views [Updated]

unknownunknown-1Hillary Clinton has campaigned tirelessly for women votes, including heralding her nomination as a historic moment for all women. However, she continues to be unpopular not only with voters as a whole but a majority of women.  The new Washington Post-ABC poll shows her at a record low despite spending roughly $100 million in political advertisements and an overwhelming media barrage against Trump.  While seen by supporters as more of an anti-establishment figure, Trump has equally shocking figures and even top Clinton in unpopularity with many groups.  Voters continue to reject both Trump and Clinton but that overwhelming voter anger at these choices does not appear to matter in our political system.  The importance of this poll is not to suggest that Clinton will win. Rather, for voters, many believe it simply does not matter. Their views of Trump or Clinton seem immaterial to a system that is detached from the wishes of the majority of the electorate. While the Washington Post reports that Clinton has halted the polling “swoon” in August, the overwhelming distrust factor from the earlier poll continues.

Clinton recently asked why she was not 50 points ahead of Trump, but it is now clear that voters continue to harbor deep distrust of Clinton.  Her unfavorable rating have gone from 42 percent in July to 56 percent now.  To some degree, it is not surprising.  Polls clearly showed that the voters did not want an establishment figure so the DNC worked to guarantee the nomination to the ultimate establishment figure. However, it clearly goes deeper than that.  Even against one of the most unpopular figures in history (Trump is even worse at 63 percent unfavorability), Clinton cannot even maintain a majority of women with favorability ratings.

Despite the missteps of Trump and controversial history with women, Clinton’s favorable rating among women has dropped from 54 percent to just 45 percent.  Her support among Hispanics has fallen from 71 percent to 55 percent.

Vice President Joe Biden seemed to reflect this persistent problem today by remarking that “I know some of you, and some of the people you are trying to convince are not crazy about Hillary. I know that.”  However, he insisted that Clinton has gotten an unfair deal.  Of course, the Clinton campaign appears to have largely pursued the “lesser of two evils” approach that is all too familiar to critics of the power duopoly in this country.  The result is tragic where the citizens are being given a choice between the two least popular presidential candidates in the history of modern polling.

  1. The FBI didn’t have to release anything about her security clearance. She was the governor of Alaska and she was the commander in chief of the Alaskan National Guard, They are the only NG in the country that has personel working 24/7/365. That’s our early warning system in case we are attacked.There is plenty of of evidence. She would have to have this clearance as the NG answers to her.

  2. Whatever you do, don’t vote.

    You will be responsible for electing dishonest, incompetent people into office who will screw everything up. You will be responsible for everything they do. You will have no right to complain.

  3. Trumps hot mic leak is not going to make me vote for higher taxes and open borders! #TrumpPence2016

  4. When Sarah Palin was running for Vice President, she had a higher security clearance than John McCain, Barak Obama and Joe Biden. As governor of Alaska she was commander in chief of the Alaska National Guard. The Alaska National Guard is the only state guard that a section of it that was on duty 24/7/365. It was part of the early warning system.

    1. Haha! Just because you read something on the Internet does not make it true. This old canard made the rounds after McCain picked her.

      The truth is that the FBI doesn’t release information about anyone’s security clearance and there is not one shred of evidence anywhere about her actual security clearance.

      If you have an actual source, and not just that ridiculous quote from one of her boy-fans, please post it.

  5. Ha! Yes, Sarah had several years working in a state with fewer people than Dallas. or Houston. Or San Jose. But never mind that, it was her willfull ignorance about matters of state and what was going on in the world that frightened people. Just like Donald. Joe Biden and Barack Obama were better informed going in, and smart enough to actually pick up and learn from a briefing. Trying to defend Bible Spice is really silly on your part. Everybody knows now, just how stupid she is, and how stupid it was for McCain to choose her.

    1. We know Clinton isn’t woefully ignorant of matters of state, she has helped architect the boiling catastrophes around the world. Iraq, Libya, Syria, the budding crises in central Africa are not positive accomplishments to impress and electorate with. Oh, and the Soros-NED bloodshed in Ukraine spurred on by the cookie monster of Kiev Victoria Neuland and her neocon husband. They are all disgusting traders in death.

      1. A little bit of evidence would go a very long way toward making your post seem like something other than a tin foil hat rant.

        Trump’s SECRET plan for Syria? Gee whiz whaddya know, it’s the same as Hillary’s plan. And Obama’s plan. And any other sane person’s plan.

        And your Soros Derangement Syndrome isn’t winning.

        1. Does Trump have a plan to get more of our ambassadors in the Middle East killed? Maybe Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama can show him how it’s done since it’s something they accomplished.

        2. There is astounding evidence for the total failures. They can’t even hide it on the corporate news. You can pretend like Libya and Syria are coming along “fine,” but that surely isn’t the case.

          Soros has not made it a secret that he supports a lot of these things. Especially the Ukrainian situation.

          And I proudly wear my tin foil hat, thank you!
