Washington (CNN) - A majority of Americans still see Hillary Clinton in a positive light, but a new national poll indicates the former secretary of state's favorable rating has edged down since earlier this year.
As Clinton kicks off her book tour of her much anticipated memoir, "Hard Choices," a Gallup poll released Wednesday indicates that 54% of the public holds a favorable opinion of her, down five percentage points from February. The 54% figure is the lowest favorable rating for Clinton in Gallup polling since August of 2008, just two months after the then-Sen. Clinton of New York lost a marathon and historic battle for the Democratic presidential nomination against then-Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois.
(CNN) - Saying "I'm going to do this. I'm going to run for the United States Senate," former Obama administration official, consumer advocate, and Harvard Law professor Elizabeth Warren officially launched her bid to try and unseat Republican Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts, who Democrats think may be one of the most vulnerable GOP senators in next year's election.
Warren will kick off her campaign at five stops across the Bay State Wednesday: Boston, New Bedford, Framingham, Worcester and Springfield. Using an outsider approach, Warren listed the reasons she's running in a video on her campaign website early Wednesday morning.
