Hillary Clinton Is Setting Post-Election Records… for Unpopularity

July 21, 2017

Bloomberg is out with a new shock poll: just 39 percent of Americans view failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton favorably.

Meanwhile, according to the same poll, 41 percent of Americans view President Donald Trump favorably.

Hillary Clinton is in a league of her own when it comes to failed presidential candidates. Typically, as Gallup explains, failed presidential candidates see a boost in popularity post-election:

This was especially true for 2008 runner-up John McCain, who saw an enormous 14-point bump after losing his race against President Obama.

But it has not been so true for Hillary Clinton, who has publicly blamed everyone from James Comey to Russia for her loss and, as a result, has been relentlessly tarred and feathered in the media post-election. Poor Hillary. All she wanted was for America to love her, and we just… don’t.
