A new poll from NBC News and the Wall Street Journal show Hillary Clinton's popularity among the general public is falling away.
According to the survey, 44 percent of respondents say their opinion of the former First Lady are somewhat or very positive. That is down from 51 percent, the support Clinton received in a similar poll, taken in September. Her negative numbers also rose over the last eight months, from 31 to 37 percent. When Clinton ran for the Oval Office in 2008, 46 percent of respondents approved of her, while 39 percent were opposed.
The poll also showed the Democratic Party is currently more popular than Republicans. Hillary's party was given 38 percent positive ratings, while four in 10 oppose Democrats. Republicans received 29 percent support in the poll, while 45 percent have an unfavorable view of the GOP.
Of Democratic primary voters, 72 out of 100 voters gave Clinton a perfect score for "being knowledgeable and experienced enough to handle the presidency."
