Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, the Hawaii Democrat running for her party's 2020 presidential nomination, is seeing her favorability slip among primary voters after voting "present" on articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump last week.
According to a new survey from Morning Consult, her unfavorability rating stood at 23 percent, already a high number, in the week preceding the impeachment vote.
She is now the field's "most disliked candidate"—overtaking former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, according to Morning Consult.
"I could not in good conscience vote against impeachment because I believe President Trump is guilty of wrongdoing," she explained in a statement following the impeachment vote.
While an agnostic vote might help Gabbard among impeachment skeptics, the Democratic Party is firmly behind impeaching the president.
Gabbard has already said that she won't seek re-election to her House seat in order to focus on the primary race.
According to Morning Consult's rankings, Gabbard remains at 2 percent among primary voters, unchanged since the last pre-debate poll. »
