Hillary Clinton’s unpopularity hits new high: poll

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s unpopularity has hit a new high, as she’s erased some of the good will built up in the wake of last month’s Democratic National Convention, according to an ABC News-Washington Post poll released Wednesday.

Thirty-eight percent of registered voters now have a favorable view of Mrs. Clinton, compared to 59 percent who reported an unfavorable view. That’s down from her 46 percent/52 percent favorable/unfavorable split in early August, shortly after the Democrats’ convention in Philadelphia.

Among registered voters, she’s now on par with Republican nominee Donald Trump, who had a 37 percent/60 percent favorable/unfavorable split in the new poll — essentially unchanged from a 36 percent/61 percent split in early August.

Among all adults, 56 percent said they have an unfavorable view of Mrs. Clinton, compared to 63 percent for Mr. Trump.
