Not that Hillary Clinton was all that popular to begin with, but the latest polls are not good news. Polls indicate Hillary Clinton losing popularity.
For me, Hillary Clinton losing popularity was easy to predict, and I predicted it. No matter how the media has tried to doll Hillary up, she remains as unlikable as always.
According to ABC News, Hillary Clinton’s unpopularity reached a new high in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll. Her poll numbers are quite Trumpian.
What this means is while Trump gets no less popular, Hillary Clinton does.
Based on the poll results, Clinton and Trump solidify their positions as the two most unpopular presidential candidates in polling dating back more than 30 years. But for Trump, this is familiar territory. Trump was unpopular to begin with, yet still managed to get more primary votes than any Republican candidate in history. Hillary Clinton got less votes than she did in 2008. That’s shocking when you consider that Clinton had no competition. The DNC saw to that.
The poll numbers:
Among all adults, 56 percent now view Clinton unfavorably, up 6 percentage points in three weeks, compared to 63 percent who say the same about Trump.
Among registered voters, the two candidates have near-identical unfavorable ratings: 59 percent for Clinton vs. 60 percent for Trump.
Thing will only get worse for Hillary Clinton and better for Trump.
I’ve argued that all the movements against Hillary Clinton remain in effect. She has not shored up her base, nor will she. The very constituencies Hillary Clinton needs are being slowly pilfered by Trump. Ironically, pundits keep asking, “Is it too late for Trump?!”
The time remaining in this campaign is 5 lifetimes, with the famous October surprises at the ready. Trump has been vetted more than the head of the CIA, NSA and the FBI combined. Hillary Clinton has more skeletons than Arlington National Cemetery.
Give the polls two more weeks, and you will begin to see Trump gaining traction. In October, the Clinton camp will be sending out resumes.
