Poll: Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Receives Higher Post-Election Reviews Than Donald Trump’s
It would seem that not only did Hillary Clinton win the popular vote, but a new poll suggests that people preferred how her 2016 campaign was managed compared to that of Donald Trump.
Pew Research Center came out with a new survey, showing that 43% of their respondents gave Clinton’s campaign “A” or “B” ratings, while only 30% gave Trump’s campaign positive ratings. This is the first time where Pew’s post-election poll showed the losing candidate with a higher score than the victor.
The poll was taken after Election Day, and it included voters who participated in Pew’s polls from before November 8. Fifty percent of the polled voters were pleased by the election’s outcome while 48% said they were unhappy with the results.
The poll also showed that 56% of the voters expect that Trump would have a successful first term, which trails the 97% of Trump supporters who predicted the same. Nonetheless, 76% of Clinton supporters said they were pessimistic about Trump’s presidency, and 40% said they couldn’t see themselves giving him a chance “because of the kind of person he has shown himself to be.”
The poll was orchestrated from November 10-14, and of the 1,254 participants, 533 people voted Trump while 587 voted Clinton. The margin of error for the full sample size was approximated at 3.4 percentage points.
