Poll: Bill Clinton More Respectful of Women than Trump

Former President Bill Clinton has been under fire for his past treatment of women, but a new poll has suggested that voters think more highly of him than Donald Trump and his record of abuse.

The Hill reports:

Half of Americans, 50 percent, say Clinton is more respectful of women, according to a Fox News poll released over the weekend, while 37 percent say Trump is more respectful of women.

Among women, 55 percent hold Clinton above Trump, while 31 percent say the billionaire is more respective of women than Clinton. Men rate the two fairly equally, 44 to 43 percent.

Trump has knocked Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for several weeks over her husband’s past infidelity, saying as recently as Sunday in an interview that she is “not a victim” and “was an enabler.”

The Fox News poll found that voters are twice as likely to think Bill Clinton’s sexual history has hurt rather than helped his wife’s political career, with 46 percent saying it hurt and 21 percent saying it helped.

The poll of 1,006 registered voters was conducted Jan. 4–7 via landlines and cellphones with an overall margin of error of 3 percentage points.
