• CBS: More Americans Say Hillary Clinton is Dishonest

    It’s probably not a good sign for a failed presidential candidate making her second run at the White House if she’s starting out with only a quarter of the population saying she’s “honest.”

    And yet, that’s exactly where Hillary Clinton finds herself.

    Hillary Clinton’s favorability has been in a nonstop spiral amid the swirling allegations of corruption at her family foundation while she was serving as Barack Obama’s secretary of state. And let us not forget the private email scandals, for which she will be testifying in front of Congress later on this month.

    The troubling numbers for Hillary come from a new Wall Street Journal/NBC survey which says that more and more Americans find Hillary unfavorable, a number that has increased to 42 percent from 36 percent in the survey just one month ago.

    Just about the only bloc of voters that still solidly support Hillary Clinton are her fellow Democrats. But she’ll need a lot more than just people who’ve always supported her if she’s even thinking about winning the White House.

    When Hillary testifies before Congress later this month, it will be a very potent reminder to the American people why they don’t and can’t trust her.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy and his Benghazi committee will probe Hillary and ask her tough questions about the private email server she had installed in her home in New York. It’ll be interesting to see how Hillary handles tough questions, seeing as how she has largely gone out of her way to avoid the press as of late.

    And with the long-awaited release of the book Clinton Cash, that started all the questions about foreign donations, it’s hard to imagine that Hillary’s troubles with trustworthiness and transparency are going to go away anytime soon.
