Approval ratings for President Clinton hit 89 percent
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Just one month into the new administration, a new Gallup poll reveals that President Clinton’s approval ratings have skyrocketed to 89 percent.
In a press release, Gallup said Clinton's approval rating is the highest it's ever recorded for a sitting president, noting "in terms of popularity, Clinton has somehow surpassed handmade Valentine’s Day cards, 70-degree weather, and La La Land. It's unprecedented."
Of the 11 percent who told Gallup that they do not approve of President Clinton's job performance, the majority identified as “Bernie Bros,” with many "strongly agreeing" with the statements, "President Clinton is a corporate whore who will end of democracy as we know it" and "Trump would have been a better president."
Based on her stints as New York Senator and Secretary of State, 538's Nate Silver says that Clinton has historically garnered high approval ratings whenever she's served in public office. While Clinton won November's election by 3 million votes, Silver said the public has grown much fonder of her since she took office last month. 538's senior writer Clare Malone attributing Clinton's surging popularity to many things, including her sensible Cabinet picks, her increasing the minimum wage to $12 an hour, her raising taxes on the Super Rich, and her mandating parental leave.
