I am not surprised. A significant chunk of her support (including mine) was based on preference to Trump, not approval in an absolute sense. So without an election at stake, why would people like her more?
A significant chunk of Trump's support mutatis mutandis
Meanwhile over by Free Republic, links to a number of right wing outlets (Breitbart, Fox, and several others) have been running articles about how Democrats on the campaign trail fear Hillary as the kiss of death.
They all trace back to this one in the Washington Examiner
, which I suppose is also a right wing source, but also the only one with the surface appearance of an old style real news story and some plausible alleged quotes not ripped out of context.
'Kiss of Death': Democrats keep Hillary off campaign trail
Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, are due to go back on the road next month, embarking on a 13-city tour in which they will conduct “one-of-a-kind conversations" about "the most impactful moments in modern history". But Democratic strategists are relieved that their first event will be 12 days after Americans go to the polls on Nov 6.
"I think they're measuring how they can have the best, positive impact and have kind of decided to wait until after the election," said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.
One House Democrat said the Clintons were not missed. "I have not seen Hillary or Bill at all — and I’m very grateful for that," he said. "When I think of people who have been part of our push to retake the House, I just don’t think of them at all. ... I think it’s a very good thing that they’re not being visible. It wouldn’t help our candidates."
I note that the name "Clinton" alone refers to Hillary and not to ex-president Mister.
I approve of that stylistic improvement. Yeah OK nobody asked me.
