A majority of Americans (52 percent) do not trust Hillary Clinton, a new poll released by Vox Populi Polling shows.

The poll comes following news that Clinton exclusively used a private email account and server during her time as secretary of state.

Sixty-eight percent believe she "she risked American security" by using her private email account exclusively to conduct government business.

Fifty-five percent of those polled believe the email scandal will impact the 2016 presidential race.

"Hillary Clinton’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week has gotten even worse," Vox Populi Polling spokeswoman Lisa Boothe said in a statement. "The numbers illustrate that the controversy surrounding her emails is having a negative impact on public opinion of her. Not only do the majority of Americans not trust Hillary Clinton but they believe her use of private emails and a private server have risked American security. The response is so negative for Clinton that the majority of Americans believe it will impact the 2016 presidential election."
