NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton is getting a lot more praise from liberal activists than President Donald Trump, even as she faces questions about her handling of classified material.
The New York Times has named her as one of the 10 most admired Democrats in America, alongside President Barack Obama, President Joe Biden and Vice President Joe Bidens son, Biden Jr. in its annual list of most admired people.
She is also the only Democrat to make the top 10 list of the most admired liberals in the country.
While Trump has been called the worst president since Reconstruction, he was praised by liberals more than any other president since World War II.
Hillary Clinton, however, received fewer accolades.
The Times noted that while Trump has received more votes, Clinton has received far more endorsements from liberals than any president in the past 30 years.
The most popular Democrat in the U.S. in 2020, Clinton also received a rating of 1.1 out of 10, the Times said.
Clinton’s approval rating also rose from 46% in 2020 to 51% in 2021, according to the latest Gallup polling.
Trump’s approval dipped to 39% in 2022.
Trump has since improved to 44% approval, according for the new poll.
Clinton also enjoys a more favorable rating than Biden, who received a 46% rating in the survey, compared to 43% for Trump.
In 2020, a Quinnipiac University poll found Trump’s support among white voters was up 10 points over the previous poll, while his support among women and minority voters dropped by 5 points.
The new Gallup poll, which surveyed 1,000 adults from Nov. 4-12, also found that 51% of Democrats surveyed said they thought Trump’s presidency had been “good” compared to 39%.
Biden, Biden’s son, who is serving as the vice president, also earned a 7-point increase in the number of Democrats saying they think his presidency has been “bad.”
Biden has also received more support from white Democrats than his father did, while Biden’s approval was up 4 points.
Biden received more endorsements among white Republicans than his brother, who was also vice president.
The survey found that 53% of Republicans surveyed said Trump’s handling of the Russia investigation had been good compared to 40% who said the same of Biden.
The next-highest ranking Democrat was Vice President Mike Pence, with 35%.
Biden received fewer endorsements than Trump from black voters.
Trump received an endorsement rating of 37% from African Americans in 2020 and a rating higher than Biden’s 43%.
Trump’s rating dropped 5 points among black Republicans from 41% to 38% in the new survey.
Biden also received fewer support from Hispanic voters in 2020 than his predecessor, George W. Bush, who had an endorsement rate of 45%.
Biden also got fewer endorsements from voters with a high school education or less in 2020 compared to his predecessor.
The 2016 presidential election gave Trump a decisive victory in the Electoral College, but he lost the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton.
Clinton won the popular votes but lost the Electoral Vote, so she will not be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020.
