Sixty-one percent of Americans think Hillary Clinton needs to retire from public life, according to a Rasmussen Poll published Tuesday.
Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, released her new book, “What Happened,” on Tuesday to explain why she lost the election. The former Secretary of State has been pushed to run in 2020, but she told “CBS Sunday” she does not plan on running again for public office.
“I am done being a candidate,” she said. “. . . I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country’s future is at stake.”
According to the poll, 49 percent of voters believe Clinton’s continued presence on the national stage is bad for the Democratic Party, while 44 percent say the likely reason for her loss last November was the weakness of her candidacy.
Other results from the poll include:
- More men believe it is time for Clinton to retire.
- 54 percent of Democratic voters think Clinton still has a future in public life.
- 62 percent of blacks see outside factors as the most probable cause for Clinton’s defeat.
The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted Sept. 10-11.
