This is probably the first time in long time he’s had negative favorability ratings.


One of the survey’s more striking findings is the diminished standing of former President Bill Clinton, whom some have seen as campaigning too aggressively for his wife — and against Obama.

More respondents in the poll view him in a negative light (45 percent) than in a positive one (42 percent). It’s a marked change from a year ago, when Clinton’s positive rating (48 percent) was higher than his negative score (35 percent).

In particular, Clinton’s support among African Americans and Obama supporters has eroded.

He’s lost support among African Americans? Whatever for???
