Donald Trump may be the presumptive GOP nominee and Hillary Clinton may be the likely Democratic nominee, but that doesn’t mean the American people trust or even like either of them.
Recent polls show that 60% of all voters think negatively of both candidates.
One poll showed that 59% of Americans have a “very unfavorable” opinion of Trump, and 57% of have a highly unfavorable view of Clinton.
Trump isn’t gaining any brownie points with his recent scandal, which alleges his Trump University, now defunct, defrauded thousands of students.
Clinton’s reputation took another hit last week when the State Department’s IG (Inspector General) said she broke the rules by failing to get approval for her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.
Trust in the two likely candidates has deteriorated to the point where Americans don’t believe anything either candidate is saying or promising, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.
The poll also shows that only 24% of voters believe Trump would follow through with his pledge to build a wall and have the Mexican government pay for it. And only 19% of voters think he would order a mass deportation of illegal immigrants as president.
Clinton is even less credibly with voters, with 63% not believing that she would even try to limit money in politics as she has promised.
