Latest Quinnipiac Poll asks voters what they think about candidates

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (WFSB) -

The latest Quinnipiac Poll on Thursday played a little game of presidential “Word Association.”

While the poll offered up the latest numbers, researchers asked voters what they really thought about the candidates.

When it came to democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, the word that came to most people’s minds was “liar.”

Runner up words were “dishonest” and “untrustworthy.”

Clinton still leads the democratic pool with 45 percent, but her lead continues to drop by at least 10 points since June.

She has been avoiding interviews and questions about a private email server she used while she was secretary of state, now being investigated by the FBI.

Leading republicans were not treated kindly by respondents either.

“Arrogant” was the word used to describe Donald Trump.

He leads Republicans by 28 points, the widest margin for any republican candidate.

The word used to describe Jeb Bush was just “bush.” Other words were “dynasty” and “establishment.”

The Quinnipiac Poll has his favorability rating at only 7 percent among republicans.

It still remains to be seen who will come out on top.

The poll suggests all the leading candidates could be in trouble if Vice President Joe Biden decides to put his hat in the ring.

The poll has Biden edging out Clinton among democrats.

It also shows Biden defeating Trump in a general election, 48 to 40 percent.
