Why Voters Distrust Hillary

  1. She is a centrist, thus displeasing many on both her right and her left.
  2. She is a perennial front-runner politician in a country that loves underdogs (and really doesn't care for politicians either).
  3. Her family has been embroiled in many controversies and they ultimately resort to secrecy to cover them up, instead of being transparent about it. Her email, for one.
  4. Similar to the above: they have a strong distrust of the media and therefore have a rocky relationship with them, leading to more negative stories being published. Example: photo and quote above when being asked a question.
  5. A lot of people feel like she overstepped her bounds as First Lady pushing health care reform in the 1990s. Some of the criticism is sexism, but there is a honest concern as it was a hot-button issue and the charge was being lead by someone who was not an elected politician.
