Hillary Clinton's favorability has remained stubbornly underwater since last November – a trend that defies a more usual post-election bump enjoyed by previous presidential election losers, according to a new poll.

According to a Gallup survey, 41 percent have a favorable view of the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate, within the 41 percent to 43 percent range the pollster has recorded since November 2016 – and just a few percentage points higher than her all-time low of 38 percent last September.

The poll found 57 percent continue to view Clinton unfavorably, as they have since January.

According to Gallup, the favorable ratings of losing presidential candidates generally have increased an average of 4 percentage points after the election in the last quarter century –  some in the immediate aftermath and others in the months that followed. 

But former President George H.W. Bush, who lost to Bill Clinton in 1992, saw his favorability rise 16 points, and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who faced off against Barack Obama in 2008, saw a 14 percent gain in favorability.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
