51% Say Hillary Clinton's Use of a Personal Email Account Is A Serious Problem

Hillary favorable lowest since 2008

CNN Reported:

Washington- Unfavorable views of Hillary Clinton are on the rise and perceptions of her as "honest and trustworthy" have dropped following the revelation that while serving as secretary of state she used a personal email address and home-based server to conduct State Department business.

But questions about Clinton's email practices may not harm her chances if she makes a run for the White House in 2016, as a new CNN/ORC poll finds 57% of Americans say she's someone they'd be proud to have as their president.

Overall, 51% in the poll call Clinton's use of a personal email system rather than a government provided one a very or somewhat serious problem, 48% say it's not too serious an issue or no problem at all. And the public is similarly split over whether Clinton did something wrong by using the personal system; 51% say she did, 47% that she did not.

Hillary favorable rating down to 53%, lowest in 7 years
