Gallup Concludes Hillary's Era of High Favorability Ending as Poll Numbers Plummet
Breitbart ^ | 14 Jun 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 06/14/2014 6:27:50 PM PDT by mandaladon

As she launches her book tour to rebrand her image, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is becoming less liked by Americans.

According to a Gallup survey, only 54 percent of Americans now view Clinton favorably, which is her lowest rating since 2008. She had a 59 percent favorability rating before her book tour.

Clinton, a potential 2016 presidential contender, is less liked when she enters the political arena, and her book tour is being run like a campaign. Clinton has already made plenty of blunders during her book launch, like claiming that she was "dead broke" after she and her husband left the White House, even though they bought two lavish homes in Washington, D.C. and New York.

Gallup also found that her favorability ratings plummeted with Republicans and Independents after four Americans were murdered in Benghazi while she was secretary of state.

"Hillary Clinton's era of higher favorability appears to be ending even before she announces whether she will run for president," Gallup concludes. "Americans typically rate non-political figures higher than political ones on this measure, and her favorable ratings before, during, and after being secretary of state are consistent with that phenomenon."

Gallup conducted the poll June 5-8, 2014, and the margin of error is +/- four percentage points.

Considering she got thrown off a Watergate investigative committee for lying and illegal behavior and failed to pass her bar exam, she is no example of either intelligence or ethics.

Nasty. Unlikable. Unpolished. Condescending.

Seems to think that she has to be elected, because it’s ‘her turn’.

How I loathe this despicable woman.

Still 54 points above the sanity level.

Results matter, particularly after 6 years of "Hope and Change". Obama is like the plague, and Democrats have no resistance to the disease.

The wheels are coming off the Obama bus as Iraq implodes, the IRS scandal gains new momentum, the 5 Gitmo prisoners are shown to be deadly, and the Benghazi questions remain unanswered. The weight of the scandals and lies is dragging the Democrats down, even the "inevitable" Hillary.

Obumster was sold as a young-ish, cool, hip guy, who subsequently reeled in airheaded youngsters and the soccer mom crowd by the thousands - I can't get my mind around what demographic could possibly be expected to go ga-ga over this hag like they did for the Bummer. Not feeling the electricity.

Liawatha. You know the Rats are going to go for that first female president. Regardless of whether she’s qualified or not. Then if we disagree with her, we’ll be sexist, as well as racist.

54 percent is more than enough to elect her. The American people truly want a “woman” in charge now.

Hillary is a horrible candidate because she is a horrible person, just like Bill she's a pathological liar, arrogant, self serving bitch. The longer she is on stage the less people like her. She doesn't have an honest or original thought and is a consummate bore....other than that she alright!!!

If that's true, even following Benghazi ("What difference does it make?"), the population of the United States as a whole is even more dumbed down than any logical person could have imagined!

On what basis can anyone possibly think favorably about her, especially in contrast to her massive negatives?

When the bodies were flown in and she looked in the family’s faces and lied about the incident, she disqualified herself from any consideration for office by decent people.

She has no Republican opposition and she is already off the rails. Her own former syncophants are giving her trouble because Hillary is truly rusty and detached, and behaving as if she were a former president who deserves sycophantic respect she has never earned, while her actual performance has been nothing if not mediocre, AT BEST.

The lefty media is out to try to clear a path to raise up someone else (Warren) to give the old girl anything but a coronation to the nomination.

I have never thought she would run and still don’t. Actually, the msm is not entirely opposed to Jeb Bush. They may even prefer him, given the Obama disaster, and now Hillary’s gaffe-o-meter going off the charts for which she has only herself to blame.

If she comes to the same conclusion, she won’t run.

That rating came from her side of the media aisle, actually. So did the word “rusty”, after her clumsy showing in these interviews. So did the word “clumsy”.

Hillary is in trouble with her own, and our side hasn’t had to lift even a finger to put her there.

Sweet.
