Hillary Clinton’s favorability has hit all-time lows this month, but she received perhaps the most troubling news on Tuesday: The people of Minnesota, a traditionally blue state, view Deez Nuts in higher regard than her.
Deez Nuts is an official presidential candidate as of a week ago. His entry into the race may prove problematic for the 67-year-old candidate, according to a poll conducted by Public Policy Polling (PPP).
Minnesotans have yet to form a strong opinion of the political newcomer, whose overall favorability is -5 percent. Three percent of Gopher State voters view him favorably, with 8 percent rating him unfavorably.
Clinton, however, only has the approval of 35 percent of Minnesotans, compared to 49 percent who say they do not support the Democrat according to a poll released in June, putting her 14 points underwater. Nationally, an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found 48 percent of Americans view her negatively, 11 percent more than those who have a positive view.
The PPP poll found Deez Nuts pulls more from potential Clinton voters than Trump, 25 percent to 15 percent, with 60 percent still undecided.
