Poll: Hillary losing support of white women
By Isabelle Taft
8/4/15 10:30 AM EDT


A new poll shows Hillary Clinton is losing support among a demographic that is key to her efforts to win the White House: white women.
In July, 34 percent of white women held a favorable view of Clinton, while 53 percent held an unfavorable view.
Those numbers were down from June, when 44 percent of white women held a favorable view of Clinton and 43 percent an unfavorable view.

The decline in support comes amid continued scrutiny of Clintonís use of a private email account while at the State Department. The Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll was conducted at the end of July just after the Justice Department said it was looking into whether classified information had been sent over Clintonís personal email and private server.

Women are a crucial target demographic for Clinton, who hopes women eager to witness the first female president will support her as enthusiastically as African-Americans supported President Obama in 2008 and 2012. Obama built momentum among women in the last two election cycles: in 2012, women overall supported Obama over Romney by 12 percentage points, while Romney won men by 8 percentage points, according to Gallup Polling. But among white women, the picture was not as rosy for Democrats in 2012, as Romney won that demographic by 14 points.
