LOS ANGELES, CA (California Network) - About 60 percent of voters view Hillary Clinton unfavorably. This is striking many Democrats as strange, since they clearly believe she is the most qualified for office.
Even within the party itself, a bitter feud has erupted between the most ardent supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders and supporters of Hillary Clinton. Detractors say that Clinton is corrupt and untrustworthy and above all, unlikable.
Is she really that rotten?
We'll leave that decision to the individual voters. She inspires a lack of trust, even with her supporters. While she has changed position on important issues, most politicians have.
But the reason for the lack of trust isn't just based on her voting record. It's also based on her personality.
According to Yale researchers, a person like Trump, who appears hotheaded and impulsive, is also seen as more genuine and authentic. A person who seems cold and calculating, like Clinton, is seen as less trustworthy.
Many people say they like what Clinton has to say and what she stands for, but they have little confidence she will keep her word. This is because of her personality.
The Yale researchers performed a series of experiments to see what kind of personality people favored. The experiment required people to either make a snap decision or a calculated one. It revealed that those who made impulsive decisions were seen more favorably by others.
People who took the time to make careful, calculated decisions were viewed as less trustworthy.
The results had nothing to do with how trustworthy the participants actually were. It is all perception.
So is Hillary Clinton getting a bad rap because of her personality? It's possible. But she does have a voting record as a senator from New York and she spent four years of Secretary of State. She made plenty of decisions that people can judge her by.
When voting, it is important to ground choices in the decisions people have made and deeds they have done rather than appearances.
