A new CNN/ORC poll found that more people have unfavorable views of Hillary Clinton now than at any time in the last 14 years.

Only 46 percent of poll respondents had a favorable view of Clinton, while 50 percent viewed her unfavorably. In CNN's April poll, 53 percent of respondents had a favorable view of Clinton. Clinton's unfavorable numbers haven't been this bad since March 2001, when just 44 percent of respondents had a favorable view of her.

Fifty-seven percent of respondents said Clinton was "not honest and trustworthy," while just 49 percent of respondents said Clinton "inspires confidence." Overall, Clinton's support for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination has dropped nine percentage points since April, CNN notes.

The poll surveyed 1,025 Americans via phone from May 29 to 31 and has an overall margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
