|Description||WASHINGTON Women's Kyle Murphy Jersey , April 17 (Xinhua) -- Just as U.S. President Barack Obama is often treated as a celebrity abroad but faces flagging popularity and heavy criticism at home, the same is true for Hillary Clinton: While she's a global celebrity, she is a polarizing figure at home. That was evident Tuesday as she left a campaign event in the U. S. state of Iowa just days after announcing her run for president in 2016, when some reporters from overseas chased her van as if they were the Paparazzi covering royalty. But despite her glamorous resume as a former First Lady and Secretary of State and a name that is recognized worldwide, that may not matter to ordinary Americans. Rather, Americans are still interested mainly in the economy Women's Jahri Evans Jersey , as they always have been, and want to see a candidate who can persuade them that she understands the everyday issues of ordinary middle-class Americans. Frank Newport, editor-in-chief at the polling company Gallup, said that Clinton is clearly one of the best known people in the U. S., but Americans' views of her, either positive or negative Women's Davon House Jersey , are more likely to be very partisan. Clinton's overall favorability rate, according to Gallup, is 48 percent favorable and 42 percent unfavorable. "She's an extremely well-known figure, but a polarizing figure to Americans. Some people like her, some don't," Newport told Xinhua. Analysts note that Clinton lacks the folksy charm of her husband Women's Martellus Bennett Jersey , former President Bill Clinton, and struggles to relate to many ordinary Americans. She is now trying to counter any negative public perceptions of aloofness, kicking off her campaign with a road trip to Iowa in which she drove to the state in a van. Her current mode of travel sits in sharp contrast to the chartered helicopter she used in her 2008 campaign for president. A video released Sunday to officially announce Clinton's run for president shows panoply of Americans, including a stay-at-home mother going back to work after five years, two Spanish speaking brothers starting a business, and an African American couple preparing for the arrival of a baby. The video is clearly aimed at sending "everyday Americans" -- as Clinton refers to them -- the message that they are highest on her agenda. "Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times Women's Ty Montgomery Jersey , but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top," Clinton said in the video. "Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion," she said. Indeed, in U.S. presidential elections, personality often trumps policy Women's Quinten Rollins Jersey , and that may prove to be Clinton's main challenge in the race to the White House.|
