CNN Poll: Hillary's shine has tarnished and Jeb having issues shaking family connections
Alisyn Camerota: "A new CNN/ORC poll, hot off the presses, it reveals that Hillary Clinton is hitting a speed bump on the road to the White House and Jeb Bush also having issues shaking his family connections.
Jeff Zeleny: "You're right: Hillary Clinton's shine has tarnished a little bit just two months after she entered the presidential race.
"Let's take a look at the numbers now. More people have an unfavorable view of Clinton, 50 percent, than at any time since 2001. And a growing number of people feel she does not inspire confidence. That's 50 percent compared to 42 percent only two months ago. Now only 42 percent of people say she's honest and trustworthy. That is down from 50 percent in March. And only 40 percent of people say she cares about people like them. That is down from 53 percent in March.
"So, Alisyn, it appears some of those early controversies are causing perception problems for her. Certainly bringing her back from those high approval ratings during her eight years out of politics."
