Hillary Clinton is Losing Ground to Donald Trump
Despite Donald Trump getting a beating by America’s media, Hillary Clinton is still failing to gain support.
France’s National Front party leader, Marine Le Pen, voiced support for U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton would bring war and hardship to the world.
Le Pen is a candidate in France’s April 2017 presidential election. While her increasingly popular party thrives on anti-immigration sentiment, she has been more careful in her speeches than Trump has been so as to make her party more mainstream.
“As far as France’s best interest is concerned it’s, ‘Everything but Hillary Clinton’,” Le Pen told CNN in an interview hen asked which U.S. candidate she would support.
“It’s everything but Hillary Clinton because I believe Hillary Clinton means war, Hillary Clinton means devastation, destabilizing the world, economic choices that would be devastating for my people, geostrategic choices that would lead to global conflicts.”
“What we have in common is that we’re not insiders, we are not taking part in the ‘system’, we depend on no one and do not take our orders from any financial institutions,” she told CNN in the interview taped and released on Wednesday.
Hillary Clinton’s image is at its record low with Americans in her 25-year national public life, a new poll said on Wednesday.
According to the Washington Post/ABC News poll, 56 percent of Americans now hold unfavorable views of Clinton with 41 percent regarding the former secretary of state with favorable views.
The previous low watermark for Clinton’s unfavorability rate was 55 percent in June’s version of the poll.
Meanwhile, the poll on Wednesday found that Clinton’s Republican counterpart Donald Trump continued to be more unpopular of the two presidential nominees, with 63 percent having an unfavorable opinion of him.
However, Clinton’s image is as bad as that of Trump among registered voters, the poll found.
Only 38 percent of registered U.S. voters view Clinton positively while 59 percent say they dislike her, compared to the 37/60 split for Trump.
