Hillary Is More Unpopular than Trump


Six months into his presidency, Donald Trump's approval ratings are at historic lows, settling at just 40 percent in the latest Bloomberg National Poll.

While the White House and Republican-controlled Senate grapple with their failure so far to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, a new poll by Bloomberg may give President Trump some good news - he's more popular than his former Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.

Said Bloomberg: "More than a fifth of Clinton voters say they have an unfavorable view of her".

"There's growing discontent with Hillary Clinton even as she has largely stayed out of the spotlight".

According to a new poll by Bloomberg, 58 percent of Americans believe that they are moving closer to where they hope to be financially and in their career, whereas only 27 percent believe the opposite- the lowest percentage in the five years that this survey has been conducted. The poll shows that her unfavorables are historically high with Democrats, and many are showing buyer's remorse for supporting Clinton and not "the other guy".

43 percent support President Trump's plan to simplify the tax code by decreasing it from seven tax brackets to just three, while 32 percent oppose that plan.

Trump's approval rating sank to 36 percent this month, down from 42 percent in April, but the poll indicates that slide has not yet resulted in enthusiasm for possible Democratic candidates.

The poll also found that 51% of registered voters said that Trump does not factor in to their reasons for voting in the 2018 midterm election.

Shortly after her humiliating defeat, Mrs. Clinton began to blame Trump collusion with Russian Federation.

44 percent said that President Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan have a better vision for America, while 37 percent said Hillary Clinton and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have a better vision for America.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is just one percentage point below Obama and at his highest level since the poll started asking about him in December 2009.

Trump also charged that the Washington Post-ABC News poll released before the election "was just about the most inaccurate poll".

Bloomberg surveyed 1,001 adults between July 8 and 12.
