Clinton's support is too weak to win the presidency, says Dem pollster

Democratic pollster Molly Murphy said on Friday that 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonWhite House denies pausing military aid package to Ukraine Monica Lewinsky responds to viral HBO intern's mistake: 'It gets better' Virginia governor's race poses crucial test for GOP MORE still does not have the support needed to win a presidential election, referencing a recent American Barometer survey. 

"I think that what that poll shows is that neither one of those candidates are even within a couple of points of 50 percent," Murphy, a partner at ALG Research, told Hill.TV's Joe Concha on "What America's Thinking." 

"I think that the [44] percent or so that said they supported Hillary Clinton, that's not enough to get you reelected. I think that that's people who liked Hillary Clinton who still like her, and still would vote for her again. The passage of time is unlikely to change that," she continued. 

"People can make their decisions on whether they like her or not, I just don't think they're changing their mind in terms of how they would have voted," she said. 

Murphy was referring to a recent American Barometer poll, which found that 44 percent of voters said they would vote for Clinton if the 2016 presidential election were to be held again. 

Trump garnered less support than Clinton, with only 36 percent of voters saying they would vote for him again. 

The two candidates still had firm support among their bases, according to the poll. 

Eighty-nine percent of people who voted for Trump in the 2016 election said they would do so again, while 94 percent of Clinton's voters said they would vote for her again.
