Despite the bumps and bruises on takes after assuming office, President Trump is STILL more popular than his former rival Hillary Clinton.
According to Bloomberg:
For a president with historically low poll numbers, Donald Trump can at least find solace in this: Hillary Clinton is doing worse.
Trump’s 2016 Democratic rival is viewed favorably by just 39 percent of Americans in the latest Bloomberg National Poll, two points lower than the president. It’s the second-lowest score for Clinton since the poll started tracking her in September 2009.
The former secretary of state has always been a polarizing figure, but this survey shows she’s even lost popularity among those who voted for her in November.
More than a fifth of Clinton voters say they have an unfavorable view of her. By comparison, just 8 percent of likely Clinton voters felt that way in the final Bloomberg poll before the election, and just 6 percent of Trump’s voters now say they view him unfavorably.
“There’s growing discontent with Hillary Clinton even as she has largely stayed out of the spotlight,” said pollster J. Ann Selzer, who oversaw the survey. “It’s not a pox on the Democratic house because numbers for other Democrats are good.”
This isn’t the first post-presidential race poll illustrating Clinton’s sinking popularity. Back in March, the Washington Post released a brutal poll highlighting her ‘favorability’ at just 35% .
After a recent speech at her alma mater, Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton was asked by a young snowflake what she would change about her 2016 campaign if she had it to do all over again, to which she quickly responded, “I’d win.”
But while Hillary seems to be fairly optimistic after her staggering 2016 loss, a new poll from Suffolk University reveals that her ‘favorability’ ratings among registered voters have dipped to all-time lows at only 35% .
As the Washington Post points out, Hillary’s decline is due to both Democrats and independents apparently souring on her. While 88% of Democrats and 32% of independents liked Clinton in October, today those numbers are down to 74% and 25% , respectively. Clearly, even some who voted for Clinton — she won 89% of Democrats’ votes and 42% of independents’ — don’t have as much affection for her as they did at the tail end of the election.
And lest you think this is just a fake poll with a Republican “oversample” designed to make Hillary look bad, the details actually show a 2-point sampling advantage for Democrats.
