Hillary’s Poll Numbers Descend Into Harsh Negatives

In the wake of the book Clinton Cash, Hillary’s poll numbers have cratered. Few people trust her.

It isn’t just one poll, either. There are two polls out this week that show the same downward trend.

Two new polls released this morning show that Hillary Clinton is losing the trust of the American people, other than Democrats, who remain committed to her. Both the polls by CNN/Opinion Research Corporation and ABC News/Washington Post show the presumptive Democrat nominee under water on trustworthiness and favorability ratings.

“While Clinton remains strikingly dominant in the Democratic field, the poll shows that her numbers have dropped significantly across several key indicators since she launched her campaign in April.”

“A growing number of people say she is not honest and trustworthy (57%, up from 49% in March), less than half feel she cares about people like them (47%, down from 53% last July) and more now feel she does not inspire confidence (50%, up from 42% last March).”

“In head-to-head match-ups against top Republicans, her margin is tighter than it has been at any point in CNN/ORC’s polling on the contest.”

In understanding the head-to-head polling versus GOP candidates, keep in mind that name recognition adds many points to Clinton versus the much less well-known GOP field. At this point, she should have double-digit leads against any Republican simply based on her name recognition. Instead:

“In general election match-ups, Clinton now runs about even with Rand Paul, Scott Walker and Marco Rubio, while she continues to top Bush and Ted Cruz by a significant margin.”

This is all good news, though.
