ABC’s analysis points out that among all adults, 56 percent now view Hillary unfavorably, up six points in three weeks. Sixty-three percent say the same about The Donald. The findings solidify the two candidates’ positions as the two most unpopular presidential candidates in polling dating back more than 30 years. What an accomplishment.
Hillary’s numbers have dropped in groups that have been very supportive of her:
Her favorable rating among women dropped from 54% to 45%.
ABC also notes that Hillary couldn’t get much more unpopular among Republicans – 88 percent of whom see her unfavorably. But she’s also lost eight points in this measure among independents (to 31 percent) and among Democrats (to 79 percent in her home party, vs. Trump’s 72 percent among Republicans). There’s been no change in Trump’s popularity overall.
The ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted August 24-28, 2016 and has a margin error of 3.5 percent.
