(Week of 6/15/2013) Former President Bill Clinton and former Senator and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remain more popular than the current President – and more popular than any Congressional leader. In this week’s Economist/YouGov Poll, more than half rate each of the Clintons favorably, more than the number that give President Obama a favorable rating. Nearly a third of Republicans and half of independents rate each Clinton positively. Few in those groups feel positively about the current President. Democrats are more likely to give Secretary Clinton favorable ratings than they are either President Obama or President Clinton.
