Popularity Lags for Clinton, Trump

WASHINGTON (AP) – Fifty-five percent of Americans say they have a negative opinion of Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton.

But that’s not nearly as bad as how they view the leading candidate for the Republican nomination, Donald Trump.

His unfavorable rating in the latest AP-GfK poll stands at 69 percent.

The negative feelings Americans have for both is a harbinger of a general election contest that’s shaping up to be less about voters supporting the candidate of their choice, and more about picking the one they dislike the least.

Nearly half of all registered voters say they would at least consider voting for Clinton, far more than who say they are open to voting for Trump. Sixty-three percent of voters say they definitely wouldn’t vote for Trump in a general election.
