Poll: Hillary Plummets, GOP Surges

Hillary's numbers hit all time low

 Albert Merrick |

A new poll conducted shows Hillary Clinton's favorability ratings hitting historic lows, while the part who has often opposed her is enjoying something of a surge. The Fox News poll, conducted by GOP and Democratic pollsters, show the former Secretary of State with the lowest favorability rating in six years, at 45%, compared to 49% unfavorable. As a Washington Post article on the poll points out, those are levels Clinton hasn't seen in over half a decade:

“The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46.

Other polls have shown Clinton's numbers -- which were stellar during her time as secretary of state -- steadily dropping since she left her post last year.

By contrast, the GOP, longtime foil to the Clintons, have seen their approval ratings improve by nearly 50%. The GOP now enjoys an even split, with 45% of the country each finding the party favorable or unfavorable. In October of last year, the same poll had the GOP with a mere 30% approval rating.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
