Clinton Now Least Favorable Candidate, ABC Poll Finds
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton passed Republican nominee Donald Trump as the least favored candidate, according to an ABC/Washington Post tracking poll published Monday.
Sixty percent of voters rated Clinton as “unfavorable,” with 49 percent of likely voters reporting they held a “strongly unfavorable” view of Clinton. Trump didn’t fare much better, but the Republican nominee is traditionally viewed less favorably to Clinton in previous polling. Fifty-eight percent of voters reported they held an “unfavorable” view of Trump, and 48 percent reported a “strongly unfavorable” view of the Republican nominee.
This poll marks a reversal from polling earlier in the election cycle. As early as last week, a CNN/ORC poll revealed that Trump had a 57 percent unfavorable rating, compared to 52 percent for Clinton.
Trump is still statistically tied with Clinton in the overall poll, earning 45 percent to Clinton’s 46 percent. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson earned 4 percent, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein earned 2 percent of the vote in the poll.
The ABC poll included 935 likely voters, and was conducted from Oct. 26 through Oct. 29. The poll carried a margin of error of 3 percentage points in either direction.
