Hillary Clinton may want to think twice about putting her husband on the campaign trail as she tries to win the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

A new Rasmussen Reports poll reveals just 36 percent of likely voters believe the use of former President Bill Clinton will help bolster the former secretary of state's chances. That figure is down from 46 percent in April and 54 percent in early 2014.

Another 18 percent believe Bill Clinton's presence will hurt his wife's candidacy, while 35 percent say it will have no impact.

The former president is still a big plus among Democrats, according to Rasmussen, with 53 percent approving of his stumping for Hillary Clinton. That figure, however, is down from 65 percent earlier this year.

Bill Clinton's name has been dragged through the mud in recent days.

It started when Hillary Clinton labelled Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump a "sexist."

Trump quickly countered that she had long protected her husband's reputation as a womanizer. Bill Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky during his presidency led to his impeachment.

The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted Dec. 22-23, with a margin of sampling error of +/- 3 percentage points.
