Hillary Clinton is Not Popular

Among the endless efforts to make Hillary Clinton's 2016 candidacy seem inevitable, the most absurd is those who claim that she has suddenly transformed into so a candidate with a broad base of popular support. This was always ridiculous, and the reasons why were obvious to anyone who understands our personality driven political system. You get popular when you are in positions outside of the daily cable media puke funnel, and you become extremely divisive the moment you return to it. If you don't believe me take a look at George W. Bush's approval ratings at the moment.

Hillary Clinton is exactly the same things she was last time she ran for office: Extremely divisive, not a good campaigner or speaker, and an extraordinary fund raiser. Literally nothing has changed, she remains all of these things, and her favorable ratings will continue to plummet, the more unpopular she will become. Here is her current graph, and it's not going to get worse before it gets better.
