Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Democrats made history by nominating Hillary Clinton — the most unpopular candidate in Democratic history.
"Tonight Democrats formally nominated the most scandal-plagued and disliked candidate in the history of their party," Priebus said in a statement Tuesday night, according to The Hill
"Despite clinching the nomination, poll after poll continues to show Hillary Clinton's trustworthiness and favorability sinking to all-time lows, and her constant shapeshifting on the issues will only further alienate millions of Americans already repelled by her cronyism and double standards," Priebus added.
"Simply put, Hillary Clinton cannot escape the fact Americans overwhelmingly regard her as dishonest, hypocritical, and completely out for herself," he said.
Priebus ended his statement praising Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, saying he "is promising to shake up Washington and bring strong leadership that will restore prosperity, secure our homeland, and Make America Great Again."
A Gallup poll
released Tuesday showed Clinton is viewed unfavorably by 57 percent of Americans, an all-time worst in her political career.
Another Gallup poll released earlier this month analyzed presidential candidates over the last seven decades and placed both Trump and Clinton at the top of the "highly unfavorable"
list among U.S. voters.
Trump leads with 42 percent highly unfavorable, while Clinton is second with 33 percent considering her highly unfavorable. The only person close to them in the highly unfavorable rating is Barry Goldwater, the 1964 presidential candidate, who had 26 percent.
