In her latest cash grab, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched a bid on Apr. 30 to regain her power in the Democratic Party — but a new poll just revealed some very bad news for the Clinton’s plans.
At the same time the Clintons has launched a new effort to line their pockets, Hillary’s popularity has plunged to historic new lows.
That’s according to a new Wall Street Journal study, which found that failed presidential candidates usually experienced a down-tick in positive sentiments — but none as much as Hillary.
Compared to Al Gore, Mitt Romney, and John McCain’s popularity downturns, Hillary’s post-election decline has been a bit steeper. Her positive ratings among voters has plummeted to a historic low of 27 percent.
The study found that 52 percent of Americans thinks of Hillary negatively, which put her polling numbers 25 percentage points below President Donald Trump.
It’s bad news for Democrats — but great news for conservatives heading into the 2018 midterm election. Hillary’s meddling will only hurt liberal causes ahead of the historic election just months away, experts say.
“Her negative numbers make her something of a natural target for Republicans who want to associate their opponents with her as the party heads into a potentially difficult midterm election this fall. In doing so, they have managed to put some vulnerable Democrats in states Mr. Trump easily won, like Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Claire McCaskill of Missouri, on the defensive,” The Journal reported.
“That was driven home [in March] when Democrats took distance from comments Mrs. Clinton, attending a conference in India, made about middle-American Trump voters.”
Hillary’s bad reputation and nasty post-election comments are already dragging down her former political allies.
For example, Missouri Sen. Clair McCaskill has suffered serious polling blows after her opponent began linking her to Hillary’s comments.

According to a new poll by The St. Louis Dispatch, McCaskill has since declined to just “a 38 percent approval rating and 45 percent disapproval, with 53 percent saying it was ‘time for a new person’ in [her senate] seat.” —
That same scenario is playing out across the country, just months away from one of the biggest elections in American history.
Hillary is an increasingly toxic force that divides voters.
The more she tries to worm her way back into power in the Democratic Party, the better it is for conservatives.
