HILLARY Clinton is now the most unpopular candidate in the US presidential election race ahead of Donald Trump, a new poll has shown.
According to the ABC News/Washington Post poll, published yesterday, 60 per cent of American voters now rate Mrs Clinton negatively. Almost as many – 58 per cent – have unfavourable views of Mr Trump.
The rate is a record high for a Democratic candidate.
Surprisingly 49 percent of people see Mrs Clinton “strongly” unfavourably, and 48 percent say the same about Mr Trump, demonstrating the strength of feeling about the two candidates.
The shock results will add to growing unease in the Clinton camp as opinion polls continue to narrow ahead of next Tuesday’s historic election.
It shows how the US election has effectively become an ‘unpopularity contest’ between two polar opposite candidates, indicating that the result could come down to who can inspire the most fervent supporters.
The same survey revealed Mrs Clinton’s lead has collapsed from 12 per cent a week ago to just one per cent now as Mr Trump has enjoyed a surprisingly scandal-free period, whilst she has been rocked by more revelations about her time as secretary of state.
The FBI has announced it will resume its dormant investigation into the Democrat’s use of a private email server whilst in the White House in a potentially explosive development in the presidential race.
