Former President Bill Clinton has been making the rounds to promote his new book, but remarks made during a recent interview landed him in hot water with the anti-sexual harassment #MeToo movement.
With Clinton’s sexual escapades back in the news, a recent poll surveyed voters on their view of the former president and found that a majority of them characterized Clinton as a “sexual predator” who preyed on young, vulnerable women.
The shocking result came from a Rasmussen poll which asked voters if Clinton had been a victim of overreach by his political rivals or was indeed a sexual predator as has been credibly alleged by several women.
Some 53 percent of respondents placed Clinton in the predator category while 24 percent labeled him a victim of dirty politics, with 24 percent declaring themselves undecided on the matter.
Incredibly, it is actually men who are holding the former president to account more so than women, by a margin of 55-50 percent between the two respective genders as to how many believe Clinton is a sexual predator.
One issue that came up in the interview that sparked controversy was that Clinton has avoided issuing any sort of apology to former White House intern Monica Lewinsky over the past two decades.
Roughly 44 percent of voters believe such a personal apology is necessary and overdue while 34 percent say no apology is needed, with 22 percent undecided on the topic of an apology.
A similar poll in November 2017 had found that while 50 percent of voters held a favorable opinion of the former president, a full 59 percent of voters believed the allegations of sexual misconduct that have been lodged against him over the years.
Unsurprisingly, three-quarters of Republicans view Clinton as a sexual predator, as do 48 percent of independent unaffiliated voters. Democrats, meanwhile, are split down the middle on the topic, with nearly one-third on the left claiming to be undecided on the issue.
According to Breitbart, these poll numbers represent a significant drop-off for Clinton since his days in the White House when his approval rating never dipped below 50 percent. In fact, Clinton enjoyed a 65 percent approval rating when he left office in 2000.
But that was before Americans had two decades to witness the Clinton family’s seemingly corrupt and self-interested dealings, not to mention the recent social shift that has now compelled the left to hold some of their own accountable for their more egregious acts of misconduct.
Most ex-presidents see a steady rise in popularity after they leave office, but Clinton’s has been sliding downward instead. It’s no surprise to anyone but himself.
