Support for Hillary Clinton among Democratic voters has fallen to its lowest level since Reuters / Ipsos started readings three years ago.
But the former foreign minister is still 20 percentage points ahead of the nearest rival, Sen. Bernie Sanders. In a poll last week, Clinton gets 45 percent, while Sanders has 25 percent.
Vice President Joe Biden, who still has not decided to run, is in third place with 16 percent, up from around 10 percent a month ago.
Clinton's support has fallen slowly but surely recently. It seems that her use of a private email account while she was Secretary of State, has made people doubt that she is trustworthy.
Until recently it was certain that Clinton would win the nomination and become the Democratic presidential candidate in next year's election.
So certain that there has not been any other credible candidates.
But now the party has painted itself into a corner. If Clinton fails, they have no other candidate. Sanders is probably too extreme to win a presidential election, and the others who have signed up, are almost completely unknown outside their own states.
Therefore, some in the the party leadership are beginning to get worried, and have begun to consider recruiting Biden, which Biden now is thinking about.
