Majority Of Voters Find Hillary Clinton Dishonest, New Poll Says

Most voters think that Hillary Clinton is "dishonest" and a "liar," according to a recent Quinnipiac poll, released Thursday.

When asked what the first word is that comes to mind when participants of the survey think of the former Secretary of State, the three most popular answers were, "liar, "dishonest," and "untrustworthy," reports Mediaite. The next most popular responses were positive, including "experience" and "strong," but after that, the qualifiers dipped again, with responses like "crook," "untruthful," "criminal," and "deceitful."

Only 34 perfect of the voters polled said that the presidential hopeful is honest and trustworthy, according to The Hill.com. Even so, Clinton is still more popular than her Republican running mates, with 45 percent of subjects predicting that Clinton would beat GOP front runner Donald Trump in the presidential race if the two faced each other, while 41 percent predicted that Trump would defeat Clinton.

The poll also found that, beyond Trump, Clinton is approximately two percent more favorable than GOP candidates Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, say voters, although 51 percent said that they had an unfavorable opinion of the Democrat. Only 39 percent stated that they have a favorable opinion of the liberal front runner.

Clinton's support has gradually faded, as measured by polls over the course of the last several months, after it was revealed that she used a private email server while she served as Secretary of State. Clinton has cooperated with the ongoing investigations, and a member of the State Department said recently that she did not violate policy by using the private email, it appears that the damage is done, and many voters still do not believe that they can trust her.

Researchers asked the same question about Republican candidates Jeb Bush and Donald Trump. The top three responses for Bush were "Bush," "family," and "honest," while Trump fared a little less favorably. People associated him with the words "arrogant," "blowhard," and "idiot."

The Quinnipiac polling agency surveyed 1,563 registered voters via land lines and cell phones and has conceded a 2.5 percent margin of error.
