Re: Why no one likes Hillary

For example, (as best as I can determine from the chart,) in 1992 her favorable rating was 60% and unfavorable was about 20%. That's +40 net.

And if the republicans can do that to Hillary Clinton (as they did to Dukakis, Kerry, [more]

Re: Why no one likes Hillary

To say she becomes unpopular just when she runs for something is kind of missing the mark. There appears to always be something more popular at the time when she chooses to run would be more accurate.

I disagree, her being unpopular [more]

Re: Trump's All-White Nostalgia Voters

They can't "moon" the white voters, either.
