Hillary Clinton is about to become the first woman to secure a major party's presidential nomination, but voters are not impressed.
Only 38 percent of voters said Clinton's nomination was a "historic moment," according to a Morning Consult poll released Tuesday. This includes only 33 percent of men, and 42 percent of women.
Just 22 percent called her nomination a step forward for the country, while 28 percent called it a step backward. Another 18 percent said her nomination left them angry and 30 percent said it made them frustrated.
President Obama's election as the first black president was perceived by more voters as historic (35 percent) than Clinton's nomination as the first woman to be a major party nominee (29 percent). Twenty-two percent said Clinton's nomination made them less proud.
The survey of 1,362 voters was conducted June 8-9 and carries a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
