Support for a President Hillary Clinton in 2016 is down among Democrats

Hillary Clinton, the Democrats' presumed presidential darling of 2016, has lost favor with a chunk of her constituents since news broke that she had used a private email address and server while serving as secretary of state, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows.

Support for a President Hillary Clinton dropped 15 percent since the email scandal, and more than a third of Democrats say it hurt her politically. As of last week, only 45 percent of Dems say they want her as their candidate come 2016.

Moreover, 46 percent of Democratic respondents said they think there should be an independent review of all of Clinton's emails to ensure transparency, and 41 percent said they support the Republican congressional committee's effort to force the former first lady to testify.
