On top of last Monday’s news that Hillary Clinton was underwater for the first time in New York state, polls released today show Hillary still losing ground against Sanders and her favorability underwater in almost all demographics.

NBC reports:

Hillary Clinton has lost ground to Bernie Sanders — she leads him by just seven points with Joe Biden in the race, and 15 points without the vice president. That’s down from Clinton’s 34-point lead over Sanders in July and her whopping 60-point lead in June.

. . . . Hillary Clinton is the first choice of 42 percent of primary voters, Sanders is in second at 35 percent and Joe Biden third at 17 percent. No other Democrat gets more than 1 percent.

The Fox News poll also show grim results for Hillary:

Some 38 percent of voters view Clinton favorably, down from 45 percent in May.  The downward shift comes from the fact that half of women now rate her negatively.  Positive views among Democrats are also down since May (-11 points).

Overall, a record high 56 percent of voters now have an unfavorable opinion of Clinton.

The Fox poll is interesting when looking at the breakdown among various demographics.  While she is above water with several groups, including Democrats (71-23) and blacks (74-19), she is underwater with other key demographics:  women (42-50), independents (26-66), whites (31-65), men (34-63), and those under 35 (36-58).  Her total favorability is underwater at 38-56.

Earlier this summer, there was a noticeable shift in Hillary’s campaign strategy of not talking to journalists, and her continued decline in the polls is probably at the root of Hillary’s recent interview binge.  After declaring herself “a real person” on Face the Nation last weekend, she appeared on Meet the Press this morning to try to boost her image (and her poll numbers).  However, this may not be working out quite as she’d hoped.

Meet the Press host Chuck Todd set the stage for Hillary to explain her flip flops over the decades by showing a montage of clips from yesteryear.  Hillary, clearly prepared for the video and the line of questioning, assured Todd that her flip flops are not political expediency but are instead the same as Obama’s “evolution” on issues. Watch:

The goal here, I think, is to let her address the issues that matter to the Democrat base—her Iraq war vote, same-sex “marriage,” and the Keystone pipeline—and get them out of the way so she can move forward without them hanging over her head.  What better way to sell this than as the same moves Obama made with such success among the party’s base?

Other segments of the interview didn’t go quite as well for Hillary (here’s the transcript of the interview).  Her claims of victimhood (that vast rightwing conspiracy yet again), transparency, and ignorance didn’t sit well with many viewers, including Ron Fournier of The National Journal and Andrew Stiles of The Washington Free Beacon.
