Clinton Hits Record Low In Poll With 61 Percent Unpopularity

Hillary_Clinton_Testimony_to_House_Select_Committee_on_BenghaziThere is an interesting Gallup poll out that shows that, after an active speaking tour promoting her book and her retrospective on her loss to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton has actually become even more unpopular.  We have previously noted that polls have shown Trump would still beat Clinton in a head-to-head election (and here).  While Trump is also facing declining polls, he is at the same level or even higher than Clinton. Clinton posted the lowest polling numbers yet with only 36% popularity and an unfavorable rating of 61%. Polls are showing Trump at 38 percent.  While a new poll shows that half of people feel Trump should resign, it is clear that they want Clinton even less — the very same position held by many in the campaign.

Before the establishment all but anointed Clinton as their candidate in the primary, 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 was even worse at 63 percent unfavorable), Clinton could not even maintain a majority of women with favorability ratings.

What is interesting is that the Clinton have converted their impressive network of media and political allies into an all-out rehabilitation campaign with her book as the focus.  The clear effort to is insist that it was not Clinton who is responsible for the Trump election and that, once again, forces gathered to block her from succeeding,  It was a continuation of the mixed campaign themes. On issues ranging from her still undisclosed Wall Street speeches to her past legal controversies to her email scandal, Clinton continually changed her rationales and deflected responsibility. After the election, Clinton alternatively blamed sexismracismself-hating womendomineering boyfriendsRussian hackersBernie Sanders, and of course, James Comey.

It has been interesting to watch that, like Trump’s core of 30 percent, Clinton’s core still shows up at events and show no diminishment in their adoration for one of the most flawed politicians in presidential history.  Adoring crowds applaud her every statement and excuse.  Yet, for the rest of the country, the continued exposure to Clinton has only reinforced their apparent visceral dislike for the former candidate.

Clinton’s low favorability ratings were previously at 38% in late August/early September 2016 during the presidential campaign. Notably this really did not move from April 1992 when she also registered a 38% favorable rating.  What is different is not just the dip of popularity but the significant increase in unpopular figures.

Trump is doing little better.  One CNN poll actually shows him at 35 percent popularity. The lowest level of popularity of any modern president (since Eisenhower) in December of their first year was 49 percent.  Other polls show 38 percent popularity and 56.8 percent unpopularity.

As discussed earlier, Trump’s polling numbers have actually been better than some international figures like Macron.  Angela Merkel is polling as low as 29 percent.

Update: Trump has cited a poll showing him at 48 percent at the end of the year, but that poll has been criticized as an outlier. Of course , some polls are better than others when there are no choices but a range from “great” to “good” to “okay” to “other.”

  1. If that ugly photo of Hilary was to be posted on all the news networks and all the newspapers then her rating would go down further. Post photos of Monica.

    1. Your boy Trump is uglier and is constantly being shown on Fake News Fox through to legitimate.

  2. Only 61%? I thought it would be far higher than that. It would appear that there are some Americans who still believe the lies and propaganda of the MSM. HRC should be in JAIL/PRISON!!

  3. WOW, just wow JT. With the numbers that the con-in chief is running with now you post this? If you are looking to shore up your base just write the words SOROS, hell you will get 200 plus replies. Better yet write about HRC and SOROS, then you will have them drooling and sweated up to a point that they will demand the impeachment of Hillary immediately. If you’re looking for a full time gig on “FOX NEWS” don’t worry, you got the job.

    1. You are right about the Pavlovian responses – just look at your own slavering.

    2. Look, JT’s gotta do something to keep his fans coming back, so he plays the greatest hits.

      Yesterday? Black people fighting so they can post monkey jokes.

      Today? Hillary.

      Any requests for tomorrow? Jeremiah Wright? The KKK was started by Democrats?

      1. JT knows his rubes, law and order only for HRC, Trump…nothing to see here, move on. Not a word about the idiots that can’t answer questions about law, that Trump wants on federal benches. The topics that JT can write about are staggering. His motto says it all………….Res ipsa loquitur.

      2. I vote for Gloria Alllred to get another picture up. She represents da women against da sex abusers like T rump and Moore so she is a bad feminazi they say. Ruth da Bader Ginsburg is another feminazi they don’t like on da Fox Channel blog.

        1. Ken – the only juices Maxine Waters can make flow are from her mouth. Everything else has dried up by now.

            1. Nope – the bar was too low and it was a big fat pitch to the center of the plate. 🙂

  4. Why is this of interest other than your three years (and right wing others) of blaming her for everything since the atom bomb, even to the low of attacking her clothes. I personally found her to be one of the worst candidates I ever voted for, he inauthentic-sounding speech patterns she was apparently taught made me gnash my teeth. But I still voted for her because she is eminently experienced and qualified, while Trump was not. And we know that, if not from the campaign, then surely from his every angry, childish, narcissistic, misogynist, racist and grammatically idiotic false tweets and pronouncements, not to mention his shocking support of a child molester for the Senate, and recklessly seeking to destroy the federal judiciary by appointing not just incompetents, but absurdly incompetent and with little or NO experience in trials

    1. But I still voted for her because she is eminently experienced and qualified,

      So was Dr. Kermit Gosnell. That’s what you progressives will never understand, the world is full of eminently experienced and qualified people. If that’s all it took govern, then we would not need constitutional limits.

      1. It is time to awaken from your slumber. HRC cares for only one thing; herself. She hates all Americans and wants to see the USA destroyed and that is exactly what she would have done. Obama’s job was to weaken the nation which he did by weakening the military and doubling the deficit in 8 short years. HRC was suppose to win, the votes were rigged which is why they were shocked she lost. It would have been her job to finish off the country by weakening the military even further, opening the borders to allow in thousands upon thousands of Middle Eastern and Africans and anyone else who desired to come here. Then, having to support them all based on Obama’s DACA program it would have bankrupted the country thereby completely destroying it. With no military and no money any country with any military whatsoever could easily have taken total control of the USA. Is that what you wanted?

        1. Fran, is that your name comrade? Did you get that from RT or Infowars, or “FOX” anyway thanks for the laugh.

        2. It is time to awaken from your slumber.

          Fran, I believe you misunderstood my point. HRC has and would have continued to be as dishonorable to the rule of law as Gosnell was to his Hippocratic Oath.

  5. Trump is doing little better. One CNN poll actually shows him at 35 percent popularity. The lowest level of popularity of any modern president (since Eisenhower) in December of their first year was 49 percent.

    That’s remarkable! With Mueller’s ongoing investigation, minimal support from congress, a hostile FBI and non-stop anti-Trump media coverage, I’m surprised he’s not down around 20%.

    How differently the results would be if Mueller were investigating Clinton and the MSM reported the truth on her and the DNC. Speaking of national security threats: I heard DWS’s Pakistani IT family ran a car dealership called CI-A and it was nothing but a money-laundering operation.

      1. Autumn,
        I know you’ve been pinging on DWS and the Awan family quite a bit and rightly so. This deserves a serious investigation.

        1. Olly, Just as I repeatedly thumped on the TPP I will continue trying to get this story out. I am amazed that so few people know about it.

          1. Autumn and Olly,…
            “So few people know about it” because established media outlets have barely covered the Wasserman Schultz/ Awan story.
            I don’t view “fake news” as the biggest problem with the MSM.
            “Prioritizing news”, selecting what they choose to cover and what they bury, is a bigger problem.

            1. Tom,
              I understand your point. The MSM hasn’t prioritized the one thing that makes what they do cover as news: that is the TRUTH. John Wooden said: If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?

              1. Olly,…
                I liked the “goodness gracious sakes alive” Wooten used to express his frustration with players’ mistakes.
                Beau Bridges briefly played B-Ball at UCLA….he and others quoted and chuckled about Wooten’s classic putdown.

                  1. Tom Nash – thank the gods you corrected that. 😉 I didn’t recognize the name and thought it was another one I had forgotten in my old age. 🙂

                    1. Paul C. Schulte….
                      I knew a kid named “Wooten” years ago….I tried to avoid calling him “Wooden”, a name others would use at times.
                      I focused on drilling his correct name into my “memory bank”….guess it came back to haunt me when I screwed up Coach Wooden’s name.😧

    1. Olly, agreed. I don’t know how the president got to 35% with 93% negative publicity. I guess that shows that at least 35% of the country actually pay attention to facts, rather than talking points propaganda. (Looking at you, Linda).

      1. Exactly FFS! The groupthink is strong with the Left.

        Covering the Trump presidency has not always been the media’s finest hour, but even grading on that curve, the month of December has brought astonishing screwups. Professor and venerable political observer Walter Russell Mead tweeted on December 8, “I remember Watergate pretty well, and I don’t remember anything like this level of journalistic carelessness back then. The constant stream of ‘bombshells’ that turn into duds is doing much more to damage the media than anything Trump could manage.”

    2. I always buy my cars from Cars International A. They always do a great job of taking my dirty money and washing, rinsing, and drying it clean and then putting to good humanitarian use throughout the world.

      1. Trump and his tax plan. Trump and his tax plan. Trump and his tax plan. Trump and his tax plan. Trump and his tax plan. Trump and his tax plan.

        Sorry, just reinforcing the point this is not Clinton’s tax plan because, well, she’s not-our-President. 🙂

        1. It is the Super PACS and Goldman Sach’s tax plan to be honest. Trump probably does does not know what is in it although he is for it.

          1. To be honest, it is excellent, much needed tax reform, that has been years in the making. It contains a lot of provisions that the Dems have been saying for years that we need. And, it leaves a whole lot more tax dollars in the middle-class pockets than they got during the last administration and Dem-controlled congress.

          2. SW Mom,…
            Was it Trump who said ” we have to pass it to find out what’s in it.”?
            I remenber that “somebody” said that, but I don’t think it was about the tax legislation. 😉

            1. The Super PACs and Goldman Sachs know what is in it. At this point in history that is all that matters it seems. Their clients are getting what they paid for big time.

              1. SW Mom,..
                Also “matters” that Trump collected outrageous fees for speeches given at Goldman Sachs….or was that another candidate who did that?
                The campaign contributions from the Wall Street money machine greatly favored Hillary.
                Whatever degree of influence “Goldman Sachs and the SuperPacs” have in this administration, they “bought and paid for and bet on” their influence in a friendly HRC administration.

      You need to be careful. SWM is one of those Democratic Women, and you know how they like to brawl in the mall, climb thru the drive-thru windows and beat up fast food workers, and mix it up at Chuck E Cheese. One day she is going to catch you out somewhere, and KERBLAM!, she is going to go all ghetto on you!

      If she does, go for her hair weave. . .

      1. I am a foodie and would never set foot in Chuck E, Cheese on my own. 🙂 Have attended a few kids birthday parties there a long time ago.

        1. swm – I went to Chuckie E. Cheese a thousand years ago before anyone learned their pizzas were all cheese and they were basically a gaming establishment. I understand that for 100,000 tickets you can get a No. 2 pencil. 😉

  6. If Trump’s former opponent is locked up, describe its impact on the tax legislation passed yesterday to fleece the middle class and on Trump’s directive to shut down democracy (net neutrality).

    1. It doesn’t fleece the middle class. Also, “net neutrality” was a deceptive name for government control of the internet. Hardly conducive to democracy.

      1. The comparison is between Murdoch running internet delivery vs. an elected government assuring equal delivery, Sierra.
        The substantial majority in the U.S. are opposed to the GOP tax plan that gives the richest 0.1% a tax cut and corporations a tax cut with no requirements to bring back the billions they hid off shore.
        Democracy demands a GOP route in the midterms.

  7. I know this will come as a shock to many, by Hillary has become so unpopular that even Bill Clinton prefers not to spend the night with her in the same bed if he can help it, and actually prefers hanging with call girls whenever the opportunity presents itself.

  8. You’re kidding. This crook is still popular with 36% of people, and 39% have a generally favorable impression? How is that even possible? The only explanation is the mainstream media colluding with the DNC to protect HRC from any reporting of the truth. And then there’s James Comey et al who changed their statement from “gross negligence”, which is a crime, to “extremely careless” (which would still be a crime), and decline to charge her, giving the false impression to some that she did nothing wrong.

        1. Also GOOGLE “Uranium One”. “Travelgate.” There are many others, if you would like to inform yourself on the issue and understand her critics.

  9. Clinton’s polls are down?

    We need to get her out of office then. She has too much power.

    How is Polk polling, by the way?

  10. Any CNN poll is overusing Democrats. Some polls have Trump in the low 40s. Hillary would be even lower if the press actually reported on her.

  11. Why don’t we take a poll on the progress of the “deep state” coup d’etat in America.

    On a potential Trump 2016 election victory:

    “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office – that there’s no way he gets elected – but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Strzok texted on Aug. 15, 2016. “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”

    – Peter Strzok to his paramour Lisa Page in the office of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

  12. And what is the poll margin of error? 6%?

    I don’t put much credence in this sort of nonsense.

      1. Thanks. So The Hill and The Donald have the same unpopularity rating.

        As I stated, I don’t pay much credence in this exercise.

        1. There’s a very large segment of the population that dislikes and distrusts Hillary, and there’s a very large segment that dislikes and distrusts Trump.
          In this case, I think the poll results are close to the mark.

        2. Congressional Job Approval Quinnipiac Approve 13, Disapprove 79 Disapprove +66

          The rest are similar. It’s not even close Congress runs about 20 behind Clinton and 25 behind the President.

          They were 10 and 78 a week ago.

          I couldn’t find any where they were as much as 20.

          False Premise false statement wrong conclusion.
