Poll: Hillary Clinton's Popularity Slipping

By Dan Weil   |   Thursday, 31 Oct 2013 02:56 PM

Hillary Clinton’s approval rating has taken a slide, especially among young, independent, and Democratic voters, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

The survey of 800 adults taken Oct. 25-28 found that 46 percent of respondents now have a positive view of the former secretary of state, compared to 33 percent who have a negative view.

Just six months ago, the same survey found that 56 percent of Americans had a positive view of Clinton, who many consider the leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.

Clinton's positive rating among 18-to-34-year olds has dropped to 38 percent from 53 percent in April, while her positive rating among independents has shrunk over that same six-month period to 35 percent from 46 percent.

Her positive rating among Democrats, meanwhile, has gone from a high of 88 percent in April to 76 percent now.

Among Clinton's potential GOP presidential rivals, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie drew a positive approval rating of 33 percent from the latest survey, while conservative, tea party-affiliated Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas registered a 19 percent positive rating.
