It’s the second-lowest score for Clinton since the poll started tracking her in September 2009.The former secretary of state has always been a polarizing figure, but this survey shows she’s even lost popularity among those who voted for her in November.More than a fifth of Clinton voters say they have an unfavorable view of her.
