The new national survey found that 30 percent of likely voters think the presumptive GOP presidential nominee is more honest than most politicians, compared to 15 percent for Clinton, the Democratic front-runner.

Nearly a majority of voters think both presidential candidates are less honest than most other politicians. Forty-six percent say Clinton is less honest than most, and 45 percent say Trump.

The Rasmussen poll was conducted among 1,000 likely voters on Sunday and Monday; it has a 3 percentage point margin of error.
