The fact that Hillary Clinton – the likely Democratic presidential nominee – hasn’t addressed the controversy over her private email server and the fundraising controversy surrounding the Clinton Foundation in an interview or with the public seems to be causing the former Secretary of State to take a hit in the polls.
A new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll finds that although Democrat support for Clinton remains strong, the percentage of people who view Clinton negatively has increased six percent since last month’s poll, as controversies swirl around the former First Lady.
Last month, roughly 36 percent of individuals surveyed said they viewed Clinton negatively, but now that is up to 42 percent. The Wall Street Journal reports only 25 percent of voters say they think Clinton is honest – which is down more than 10 percent from a poll last summer.
It has been 24 days – more than three weeks – since Clinton announced her bid for president, yet she still has not spoken to national media about her campaign or to address the controversies she is facing. Breitbart News previously reported this is a record for presidential candidates in recent history.
