Campaign 2016 Fact Check Greatest Hits

At times it has seemed as though this presidential campaign was occurring in some alternate universe. Up is down, no means yes, day is night. Trump’s tweets, speeches, interviews, debate statements, news conferences and off-the-cuff remarks _ that is, pretty much every utterance made during his waking hours _ have been a source of hyperbole at hyper-speed. His misstatements have been so ubiquitous that Clinton’s slippery words often slithered right on by unnoticed. (AP Photo)

Just 41 percent of Americans view Trump favorably. But he's still more popular than Hillary Clinton.



President Trump is viewed favorably by just 41 percent of Americans, according to the latest Bloomberg National Poll. But he's still more popular than his 2016 Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

The poll found that just 39 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of the former first lady, U.S. senator and Secretary of State.

It's her second-lowest rating since Bloomberg began tracking it in September 2009. Her low point -- 38 percent -- came in September 2015, before the first ballots were cast in her primary battle against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

Clinton has lost support among those who voted from her in November. More than a fifth of Clinton voters now hold an unfavorable view of her, up from just 8 percent in Bloomberg's final pre-election poll. Only 6 percent of Trump voters now hold an unfavorable view of the president.

Clinton's popularity has declined even though she has mostly avoided the spotlight since her election defeat.

"There’s growing discontent with Hillary Clinton even as she has largely stayed out of the spotlight," said J. Ann Selzer, who oversaw the poll for Bloomberg. "It’s not a pox on the Democratic house because numbers for other Democrats are good."

Bloomberg's poll of 1,001 U.S. adults was conducted July 8-12 by Iowa-based Selzer & Co. and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, higher among subgroups.
