Thursday’s broadcast of “CBS Evening News” reported on the plummeting polls numbers of Hillary Clinton’s popularity in wake of the turmoil involving Clinton’s exclusive use of a private email during her tenure as secretary of state.
Anchor Scott Pelley said, “That email scandal is taking a toll on Hillary Clinton’s image as she gets ready to run for president. In a CBS News poll out tonight, 29 percent of Americans say their opinion of her has grown worse as a result of revelations that she used her personal email account for State Department business. The number who view her favorably has fallen sharply from 38 percent to 26 percent. And less than half, just 42 percent, say Mrs. Clinton is honest and trustworthy.”
