Hillary Clinton’s Approval Rating Falls to Record Low

The approval rating of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has fallen to a record low, according to the latest Gallup poll.

Clinton’s approval rating now stands at 36 percent, a five percent fall from April, while her disapproval rating has soared to a new high of 61 percent, bucking the trend of presidential candidates gaining popularity after losing an election.

Since her defeat to Donald Trump last November, Clinton has found a myriad of excuses for her loss, which include James Comey and the FBI, Vladimir Putin and alleged Russian hackers, the electoral college, conservative media, misogyny amongst the electorate, and white women who did not vote for her.

Clinton has primarily devoted 2017 to speaking events, where she has repeatedly denounced Donald Trump. She has also toured the U.S. promoting her latest book, What Happened, which details her view of events during the 2016 presidential campaign.

In October, Clinton was also implicated in the Uranium One scandal as Secretary of State for the Obama administration, with significant evidence of collusion with Russian officials who donated huge sums of money to the Clinton Foundation at the same time as 20 percent of America’s Uranium reserves were sold to Russia.

The former first lady’s husband, Bill Clinton, has also seen his approval rating fall 45 percent to its lowest level since he left office, after recently facing fresh allegations of sexual assault from four women, who claim the incidents occurred after Clinton left the White House in 2001.

Although low compared to former presidents, President Donald Trump’s approval rating has risen in recent days to 42 percent amid soaring economic confidence with record stock market highs and levels of employment.
