Hillary’s popularity takes a dive amid email scandal

Much of the goodwill Hillary Clinton built up as serving as secretary of state has dissipated, a new poll shows, just as she prepares for a second bid for the presidency.

And her popularity has taken an especially hard hit since the public became aware that she operated a private email system while serving in President Barack Obama’s cabinet.

A CNN/ORC International survey taken last weekend, after Clinton held a press conference at which she tried to explain away her secret server, found that Clinton’s high approval ratings as an Obama administration official had entirely eroded.

She is currently disliked by as many Americans, 44 percent, as she was in June of 2008 when she officially ended her presidential campaign and endorsed her future employer…

    Sooner or later, this was going to happen. Without the private e-mails it would have only taken longer, since the foreign donors to the Clinton Foundation are not noted for their benevolence.

    OMG people actually cared that she was corrupt? I thought on the left that was a plus.

      It’s not a character ‘flaw’, it’s a character ‘feature’!

  • Nice to get good news.

    All this means is that they will cheat harder.

      Yup. Clintons will behave like Clintons, after all.

    What strikes me is how manipulated this all is. The release on her use of a private server was obviously deliberate, and the media has essentially instructed us to consider this “A BIG DEAL.” And so therefore it is.
    All stuff way above my pay grade.

      YES, Yes, and YES!
      As much as I hate her and would love to see her burn, this is 100% orchestrated by her own lefty Dem Party friends.
      This is as artificial as a chicken McNugget.
      I’m happy she is taking a face plant, don’t get me wrong as I utterly cheer her demise, but can you just imagine what could be uncovered about Obama if we had a functioning press or media?
      He would be gone like Nixon!

      If this does not convince you that our media is manipulated from top to bottom then nothing will. Where were all of these critical voices three years ago? Surely everyone in the know KNEW about this back then.

        and a question remains… whom will the Dems ‘anoint’ now? iobviously, they have some Aces in their sleeves.

          It looks as if they are thinking of Elizabeth Warren, but I think that might be a misdirecting feint, then the REAL favorite will emerge “as the public becomes tired of controversy and scandal”. Then he or she will be utterly un-scrutinized, like Obama and enjoy a free ride in 2016.

          I hear rumors that Democrats are contemplating resurrecting Al Gore.

      • I never thought she had a chance anyway. If they wanted her out of the way, God help us with who they really want to foist on us.

    Soon she will be so disliked that even GLAAD will get angry over Benghazi becuase Chris Stevens was gay and should not have been put in harms way just for being surrounded by homophobic muslims that wanted him dead.
    GLAAD sure was quick to get the Mozilla CEO fired just for agreeing with Obama in 2009 about same-gender marriage.

    Homofascists, islamofascists and FemiNazi’s will turn on their friends once they fulfil their purpose and it becomes beneficial to make them the NEW enemy as part of staying in the “Victim” to spew hate with immunity .

    It’s just a flesh wound …

    Cheers

  • Why was she ever popular?

    Did everyone forget her tenure as would-be president with Bill? Her indifference to American deaths in Benghazi?
