A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey is finding that Hillary Clinton’s support is in free-fall. Politico:
The poll also highlights that Clinton is losing support among younger voters, independents and even within her own party. She dropped 15 percentage points since April among 18- to 34-year-olds who said they had a positive view of Clinton to 38 percent. Additionally, her approval rating among independents fell from 46 percent to 35 percent. Clinton’s approval among Democrats also fell by 12 points, from 88 percent in April to 76 percent in the most recent poll.
It’s not exactly clear why Clinton’s brand is taking such a beating, but it is a healthy reminder that today’s voters aren’t happy with prominent politicians in either party. If she can’t find a way to stop the slide, potential rivals for the Democratic nomination in 2016 are going to have an easier time raising money.
