She may want to run again, but if a new poll from The Wall Street Journal is any indication, Hillary Clinton may be the only person left in her corner.
The poll, released this week by WSJ, shows Hillary Clinton at a meager 27% favorability — easily the lowest numbers she’s ever received, and far below the near-50% favorability rating she had right before she lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump.
That’s tough news for the New York Democrat, who has kept herself in the limelight despite all indications that Americans are tired of hearing her excuses. After hiding out in the woods for a few weeks, Clinton re-emerged for an apology tour (where she requested, not issued, apologies), and then a book tour, and now she’s on a speaking circuit, talking mostly to small groups of women and foreign audiences.
Clinton was once, as the Daily Caller points out, one of the most highly rated politicians in American history. In 2013, DC says, Clinton was rated higher than President Barack Obama, who was at the time enjoying a post-reelection honeymoon. Now, Clinton falls far short of even President Donald Trump, whom respondents in the same poll favored by around 10 points.
WSJ doesn’t given an explanation for Clinton’s unpopularity, but unlike other failed-yet-still beloved Democratic presidential contenders, Clinton hasn’t found a post-campaign hobby to keep her busy. She’s not off saving the world like Al Gore, or eating pizza with the commoners like Mitt Romney. She’s instead trying to rewrite history at every available opportunity. And Americans just don’t like a complainer.
