A new poll from Gallup shows Hillary Clinton's favorability ratings slipping slightly since April, largely because of the controversy over the attacks in Benghazi and Clinton's testimony before Congress about them. The poll shows Clinton's at 58 percent favorability in June, down from 64 percent in April. Her unfavorable rating is up to 39 percent in June, from 31 percent in April.

From Gallup:

This poll shows only slight changes in the public's overall assessment of Clinton, with her unfavorable rating now marginally higher than at any time since 2008. However, there is no telling what the future might hold, as members of the House Oversight Committee have publicly speculated that Clinton may have to testify before the Republican-led committee again.
