This survey is a further measure of just how unelectable Clinton may be. She loses Iowa, albeit by tiny margins, to Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, two relatively unknown guys who lose the state to Democrats Vilsack, Kerry and Edwards.
Among all Iowa voters, Clinton is viewed unfavorably by a whopping 49 percent of the electorate. Only 43 percent see her in a favorable light, and 8 percent aren't sure. Whenever a candidate's unfavorables exceed their favorables, there is trouble ahead.
And this is before she suffers from two years of negative press and Republican attacks. Will she get to sixty percent unfavorable? (For more on Hillary's prospects, see this more comprehensive post from June, which discusses her 46 percent unfavorable rating among independents nationally.)
