Hillary Clinton's net favorability, especially in key swing states, has dipped lower than at any time over the past 10 years, showing she may need to attract even more of the non-white vote in the 2016 race than may have been initially expected.

The former secretary of state's poll numbers remain high among Democrats, reports The Washington Post, but according to a NBC/Marist poll released Sunday, Clinton's favorability rating in Iowa among registered voters is at negative 19 points and at negative 20 points in New Hampshire.

The numbers echo a Quinnipiac University poll showing her ratings being low in the key states.

Part of the issue is that the former senator's favorability is highest when she is not seeking office, but it dips when she is on the campaign trail, as shown in a CNN/ORC poll. The poll included a long-term look at Clinton's favorability ratings, showing similar trends in 2006 to today, The Post reports.

But overall in that poll, Clinton's net favorability was still negative, with 49 percent having an unfavorable view and 44 percent seeing her positively.

Still, her favorability ratings were much higher than those of current Republican front-runner Donald Trump, whose ratings were 59 percent unfavorable overall.

The Post, however, reports that according to the polls, Clinton's net favorability is at an all-time low. Republicans see her "very very" unfavorably, while she remains "very, very" popular among Democrats.

There is apparently a wide split between white and non-white votes, though. Clinton has a 70 percent favorability rating nationally and a 50 percent rating among Democrats in Iowa and New Hampshire, and part of that may be because of racial population.

According to the 2013 Census, Iowa is about 93 percent white and New Hampshire is 94 percent white. However, the United States is about 77.7 percent white, the Post notes, and Clinton's support is showing as being stronger in states that have lower white populations.
