Hillary Clinton’s entire identity is based around her political aspirations.
Her presidential loss in 2016 was a massive blow to her ego.
But it’s nothing compared to some huge news that just dropped.
When a presidential candidate loses, it usually isn’t game over.
They usually have a chance to make their way back into politics.
Or they use their influence to support issues close to them.
But Hillary Clinton is a different animal altogether.
Her presidential campaign was highlighted by scandals and gaffes.
And in the wake of her losing the Presidency, public opinion of her hasn’t improved.
In fact, it’s gotten much worse.
The latest poll conducted by The Wall Street Journal and NBC News shows that only 27 percent of the American population sees her as somewhat favorably.
This compares to a 42.3 percent approval rating in November of 2016.
It seems that now that she isn’t running for office, even Democrats can admit they don’t like her.
This is a sharp fall from grace for the once extremely popular Hillary Clinton.
In 2013, Hillary Clinton was seen as the most favorable politician in the United States, as well as tying with Barbara Bush as the most admired First Lady in the last quarter century.
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign looks to be the worst decision she could ever make for her reputation.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“Hillary Clinton’s popularity has taken a sharp downward turn since the 2016 election, according to a poll released this week by The Wall Street Journal and NBC News.
The poll indicates that only 27 percent of those asked viewed her somewhat favorably — compared to 30 percent last August. An average of polls rated her favorability at 42.3 percent in November of 2016.
In contrast, her unfavorable rating has remained virtually unchanged in the 18 months since the election. Compared to 54.4 percent who viewed Clinton negatively in November of 2016, the new poll shows 52 percent having an unfavorable view of her.
President Donald Trump had a similar unfavorable rating in the same poll, with 53 percent of those polled viewing him negatively. However, his positive numbers bested Clinton’s in spite of nearly continuous unfavorable news coverage. Trump was viewed favorably by 35 percent of respondents.
A lot has changed since 2013, when a Quinnipiac poll found Clinton to be the most popular politician in the United States, even besting then-President Barack Obama. Just one year later, Clinton tied with Barbara Bush as the “most admired” first lady in the last quarter century. Then-first lady Michelle Obama was ranked third.”
For someone as ego-driven as Hillary Clinton, this is extremely troubling news.
But I’m sure she has seen it coming.
The failure of her book release made it clear that the American people don’t care about her anymore.
Her book tour failed so badly that some of her appearances were in the dairy section of grocery stores.
But at least this proves that even if Hillary decides to run for office again, it would go terribly.
