Hillary Clinton Favorable Near Her All-Time HighSecretary leads the president and vice president in popular appealby Lydia Saad
PRINCETON, NJ -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's favorable rating from Americans is now 66%, up from 61% in July 2010 and her highest rating to date while serving in the Obama administration. The current rating is just one percentage point below her all-time high rating of 67%, from December 1998.
Clinton's record-high rating came shortly after the U.S. House of Representatives impeached President Bill Clinton on charges of perjury related to the Monica Lewinsky and Paula Jones investigations, matters that engendered Americans' sympathy for the first lady. However, her subsequent entry into electoral politics -- first as a U.S. senator from New York, and later as a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination -- made her a more polarizing figure, and her favorable rating descended at times into the 40s.
Since Gallup began measuring Clinton's favorable rating in 1993, there have been several instances when Americans viewed her more unfavorably than favorably -- one as recently as February 2008. However, more than 60% of Americans viewed her favorably in all three measures Gallup has taken since she assumed her State Department job, and she scored 65% in January 2009 just prior to President Barack Obama being sworn in.
The latest results are from a March 25-27 Gallup poll conducted while the United States was actively involved in enforcing a no-fly zone over Libya, a policy Clinton reportedly advocated.
I know some won't like this, BUT Clinton is more conservative than some of the Republicans that are pussy-footin' around.
