NEW POLL: Majority of Americans do not trust Hillary Clinton
According to a new poll released by Vox Populi Polling, a majority of Americans do not trust former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
"Not only do the majority of Americans, 52 percent, not trust Hillary Clinton, but 57 percent of Independents either somewhat distrust or greatly distrust her. A plurality of voters believe that Clinton intentionally withheld information and 68 percent believe that she risked American security.
"Americans also believe that Hillary Clinton should turn over all emails immediately. Among those polled, 55 percent of respondents believe that the email controversy is either somewhat or very likely to have an impact on the 2016 presidential race," Vox Populi Polling said about the results.
In addition, 68% believe Clinton "risked American security” by using her private email account while serving as the Secretary of State.
“Hillary Clinton’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week has gotten even worse.
“The numbers illustrate that the controversy surrounding her emails is having a negative impact on public opinion of her. Not only do the majority of Americans not trust Hillary Clinton but they believe her use of private emails and a private server have risked American security.
"The response is so negative for Clinton that the majority of Americans believe it will impact the 2016 presidential election," Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe said.
