Poll: Swing Voters Don’t Think Clinton’s State Department Record Was Positive


Less than half of voters in swing states and swing districts believe that Hillary Clinton’s record as secretary of state was “excellent” or “good,” according to a Politico poll released Monday.

The poll found that 42 percent would rate her State Department tenure with those positive descriptors, while 21 percent rated it as “fair” and 32 percent as “poor.”

The poll, conducted July 3 to 13, surveyed 834 likely voters in states and districts with highly competitive 2014 congressional races. The margin of error is 4.1 percentage points.
