2. Why has her favorable rating fallen by 5% and her unfavorability risen by 4% since February?

4. Almost all potential candidates look good before they are actually running.
Many people look good "in theory" as leaders, but fade when the spotlight comes on. (Ref: Fred Thompson.) In Hillary's case, I suspect that many people didn't think too much about her at all until she tossed her hat in the ring, then the BSRRE kicked in (BullShit Residual Rove Effect), dragging her numbers down as people were made wary based on reminders of the negativity of the last millennium. However, Team Clinton, as any decent campaign would, has managed to lead people beyond the slurs, smears, and innuendos, and presented their candidate in a favorable light.


Either that, or much of their campaign money is going to buying off the press.
