According to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, Hillary Clinton got a paltry 36 percent approval for being trustworthy from Democrats when compared with her socialist rival Bernie Sanders.
These numbers are devastating:
Clinton’s Advantage Hits a Campaign Low; She Lags on Trust While Leading on Issues (POLL)
Hillary Clinton’s advantage over Bernie Sanders has shrunk to its smallest of the 2016 campaign, with Sanders building a double-digit lead on honesty and trustworthiness and negating Clinton’s onetime strength in connecting with voters’ priorities.
Clinton still leads in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll in trust to handle individual issues – with the exception of regulating banks and other financial institutions – as well as on electability. She’s also aided by broad support from non-whites and by her association with the Obama administration, given the president’s vast popularity within the party.
Clinton’s single greatest vulnerability has worsened in this poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates: Sanders now leads by 12 points, 48-36 percent, in being seen as more honest and trustworthy, vs. 6 points last month and an even split in October. Should Clinton emerge as the nominee, it’s an issue the Republican candidate likely will repeat at every chance.
Gee, what could have caused so much distrust for Hillary?
Was it her lies about Benghazi, her email server, Bill’s past, her constant flip-flopping on multiple issues or something else?
