Do Voters Find Hillary Honest, Trustworthy? New Poll Reveals Just How Much

November 05, 2015Nov 05, 2015

Hillary Clinton may be the leading Democratic presidential candidate in the polls, but another new poll released Wednesday reveals likely voters' opinions on her character.

A Quinnipiac University poll asked the question, "Would you say that - Hillary Clinton is honest and trustworthy or not?"


Only 36% of respondents said yes, while 60% said no. Among age groups, those 18 to 34 were most favorable of Clinton with 48% finding her honest and trustworthy. But that number dropped to just 28% among 50 to 64 year olds.

Surprisingly, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump fared only a little better, with 36% of voters finding him honest and trustworthy and 58% finding him not.

Ben Carson won the day in that category, with an impressive 62% saying yes and 24% saying no.

Marco Rubio got 50% yes, 31% no, and Ted Cruz got 43% yes, 39% no.

Overall, Clinton ranked the lowest in trustworthiness of any major presidential candidate, Republican or Democratic.

But perhaps that's just the fault of the "vast right-wing conspiracy" Hillary exposed to the nation during the Lewinsky scandal.
