Poll: Hillary Clinton Favorability Rating Remains at All-Time Low
Pres. Trump more popular by 5-point margin.
Hillary Clinton's favorability rating remains at an all-time low 36 percent, according to a new Gallup poll.
The poll, which was based on telephone interviews September 4-12, found that the former secretary of state's favorability is unchanged from November 2017.
Sixty percent of respondents had an unfavorable opinion of Clinton, and four percent had no opinion. The polling firm has measured Clinton’s favorability going all the way back to 1992.
Her 36-percent favorability rating is down seven percentage points from where it stood on the eve of the 2016 election.
President Trump, meantime, had a favorability rating of 41 percent in the poll, which is actually higher than just before the 2016 election, largely due to more positive marks from Republicans (88 percent).
58 percent of respondents had an unfavorable opinion of Trump, and one percent had no opinion.
Opinions about Clinton were divided sharply along party lines, with just four percent of Republicans seeing her favorably, compared to 77 percent of Democrats. Less than a third of independents said they had positive feelings about Clinton.
"Just as Clinton's defeat may have caused some Democrats to reconsider their views on her, the shine of victory likely encouraged some Republicans to upgrade their opinion of Trump. Whether rank-and-file members of the GOP will continue to think positively of Trump should he lead the party to big mid-term losses is another question," Gallup's Andrew Dugan wrote.
